Here we propose an enhanced footstep power generator system that uses peizo sensors to generate power from human footsteps.
The machine permits a platform for placing footsteps. The peizo sensors are mounted below the platform to generate voltage from footsteps.
The sensors are positioned in this arrangement so as to generate maximum output voltage. That is then provided to the monitoring circuitry.
The circuit is just a microcontroller based monitoring circuit which allows user to monitor the voltage and charges a linked battery by it.
In addition, it displays the charge generated and displays on an LCD display. Also it consists of a USB cell phone charging point where user may connect cables to charge cell phone from the battery charge.
Thus we charge a battery using power from user footsteps, display it on lcd using microcontroller circuit and allow for mobile charging through the setup.
