Footstep Power Generation is a new technology which is used people foot steps to generate electricity for other electricity usage. There is many principle through which this technology can be made. Some of these working principle are pizzo-electricity, electromagnetic induction, thermal electricity etc. while walking in road or through steers, people loses some of their energy. This lost energy can be used to generate electricity for other usage like lightening, mobile charging or some low power electronics devices like sensors.

Mechanical frame : Mechanical frame is designed to concentrated energy that is generated by peoples footsteps. This mechanical frame is depends on the principle by which electricity is generating.
Electricit y generating module : Electricity generating module may be thermo-couple, pizzo-electric module, electromagnetic generator or thermal electricity generator. These generators converts different for of energy into electric energy.
Battery storage : Power that is generated from footsteps are generating in real time and this power is no eventual in magnitude. Therefore it is necessary to store power generation for future usage. For this purpose, we used battery back-up system.
Control circuits : Electronic control circuit is used to controlling and regulating power generation and backup it to battery. Some indicator are display for the status of working system.

Low cost of installation
No extra space is required
High scope in power generation in future
Battery is used to store power for future usage
In future, we can improve power output by arranging more different electricity generating technology. Improvement in structural frame will also increase output power. By using automation, we may improve its efficiency.
