Foot-Step Generator

Project Overview

This project about designing and building footstep power generator system using piezo sensors to generate power from human footsteps. The system allows for a platform for placing footsteps. The piezo sensors are mounted below the platform to generate voltage from footsteps. The sensors are placed in such an arrangement so as to generate maximum output voltage which to be sent to monitoring circuitry. The circuit is a microcontroller based monitoring circuit that counts the number of steps applied on the weighting plate and the voltage across the capacitor in the rectifier circuit then it displays all this information on an LCD screen.

Project Objectives

  • Generating power out of free energy.
  • To spend less money on power generating.
  • To encourage people to use different economical ways of generating power.
