Traditional industry is experiencing a worldwide development with Industry 4.0. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have a main role in this revolution as an essential part of data acquisition. The way in which WSNs are powered is one of the main challenges to face if Industry wants to achieve the digital transformation. Energy harvesting technologies are one of the possible solutions to this challenge. The main purpose of this paper is to present a novel method to taxonomize knowledge in the field of mechanical energy harvesting in order to enhance the use of energy harvesting technologies for industrial applications. Additionally, the taxonomy allows to identify upcoming challenges for research purposes.
