Abstract:
    The Pressure applied by footsteps is converted into electricity and stored into battery then this energy is supplied to street lights that will turn ON only when there is vehicle/pedestrian on road.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    This project provide affordable energy solution for electricity generation as well as energy management can be easily done because of the street light automation. Person having 50 kg weight produces 7 V similarly persons with 60 kg, 70 kg produces 9 V,11 V respectively.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Currently Pakistan is facing many energy crisis and conventional resources are not enough for total demand of electrical energy. Therefore, we need to use non-conventional energy resources for power generation. Our proposed system will benefit whole society and will help to overcome energy crisis.
How will the solution works
    Piezoelectric sensors are connected with each other and placed under a tile. As people walk on it a certain amount of pressure is applied on sensor due to which AC voltage will be generated. AC voltage is converted into DC voltage. This DC voltage is then stored in a rechargeable battery. In case of DC load battery is directly connected to load. In case of AC load the battery is connected to inverter. In automatic street lights PIR sensor is used to detect motion on road.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    In Pakistan this system is not implemented. UK-based Technology Company Pavegen built a sidewalk in London made up of kinetic pavement that turns pedestrians’ footsteps into energy. Our project is different and better because it is cost effective.
