Yet another IEEE transactions paper by Abdullah who is co-supervised by prof. Jurgen Kosel. We have been exploring a self-powered magneto-acoustic resonator for animal tracking. It is achieved by utilizing the low-frequency motions of the animals to excite high-frequency acoustic pulses. 
The direct conversion for the frequency eliminates the need of the electronics and battery found in conventional acoustic tags.  The concept consists of simple, passive components that enable a considerable reduction in size and further optimization, potentially creating a long-lasting miniaturized tracking tag. An earlier version of this work was presented at the Int. Conf. Magn., San Francisco, CA, USA, Jul. 2018. More details can be found at
