Millennium Fellowship Project: Footstep Power Generation
Power Generation Using Footsteps is a collaborative project that aims at tapping the potential of human walking steps. The inspiration to work on this project was fueled by the high costs of fuel and the need for a cheaper and more reliable source of power in our slum dwelling areas and densely populated rural areas. In this century, power is very much of a need and this project addresses the demand for it in a more sustainable manner. It only requires the use of piezoelectric sensors installed at strategic places where there is human traffic and the stepping force is translated to electrical power and stored in batteries. Applications include powering street lights and home-based low-power appliances such as phones, torches, etc. The project will involve online discussions and coming up with a prototype that is in line with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals of providing Clean, Cheap, and Affordable Energy.
