Here we propose the design and fabrication of a footstep power generator system. Apart from solar and wind energy systems which rely on external factors like rain and sun, footstep power generator does not rely on any such factors and is a source of renewable energy free of cost and generated through human motion. This system can prove very effective in crowded public places like railway stations as a source to generate renewable power free of cost. Multiple footstep power generators at such places can be used to increase the yield of power generated. Our proposed system uses rack and pinion arrangement along with gears and spring based arrangement to generate power from footsteps. The system allows for an efficient power generator medium. We use a rack to transfer power from human footsteps to a gear attached to a shaft, the power is then transferred to another gear through a gear based arrangement. Now we attach a generator motor/dynamo to another gear in order to run the dynamo and generate electricity. We now use a multimeter to measure the voltage generated.
