Can you give me the details of piezoelectric sensor?

It would help if you are more specific. Technically piezoelectric sensors generate electric current when pressure is applied. But the pressure can be applied longitudinally, transverse and even as shear. If arranged right, you can use a piezoelectric sensor to measure everything from force, strain, pressure, acceleration and even temperature

Piezoelectricity (also called the piezoelectric effect) is the appearance of a voltage across the sides of a crystal when you subject it to mechanical stress (by squeezing it). For more detail visit Robomart (https://www.robomart.com/buy-pir-motion-detection-sensor-arduino-raspberry-pi)
