Project supervisor: Dr. K.L. Or (Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering)

Project information

Project descriptions

Harvesting mechanical energy from human motion in day to day life is a very attractive way of creating sustainable electric energy and a piezoelectric shoe exactly does that. Since it is a wearable energy harvester, it is very convenient to use it and has many advantages which will be discussed further. It generates electricity through piezoelectric effect in the shoe and stores it in a battery which can further be used to charge your phone. When a person walks electrical energy is produced and that energy is stored in the battery.
