This project deals with piezoelectric material properties and using it as an energy harvesting source. Placing small piezoelectric elements as sensors on the sole and heel parts of a shoe-insole, can provide a voltage signal from the force distribution on the sole and the heel during the movement of a person. The piezoelectric devices will be connected in series and the voltage that produced will feed the electric circuit and charge up the super capacitor after the rectification process.
To develop a prototype that could reliably harvest Energy.
