A very charming and practical approach to contain the created triboelectric energy in textile is to store it through triboelectric generators. Harvesting human-motion energy can be a promising way to use it in wearable electronics. Since the fabric is a permanent and main component of a triboelectric generator, the triboelectric properties of several fabrics used in garments manufacturing investigated in this study. In addition, the effect of the fundamental placement modes of triboelectric generators of the lateral sliding mode and contact-separation mode investigated in this paper. The present study shows that, among the tested fabrics, nylon, cotton, and hydrophobic cotton, in contact with other fabrics, showed a greater potential difference and electric current. In addition, the results showed that the lateral-sliding mode responded faster and generated higher electric current. The results of this work show the possibility of producing wearable triboelectric generators for the harvesting of energy from human biomechanical movements in fabrics and clothing.
