Shoe Power Generator using Piezoelectricity

As the power requirements for microelectronics continue decreasing, environmental energy sources can begin to replace batteries in certain wearable subsystems. We aim to make a shoe power generator based on a micro structured piezoelectric polymer transducer. The properties of the transducer match regular shoe filling and it is designed to harness energy from human walk without affecting the user’s gait. The electronics are completely powered by the harvested energy from walking or running. The method of generating electrical voltage for charging an electronic gadget from the piezoelectric sensor that is fixed to the sole of the footwear is illustrated in this paper.
