These days as a result of increasing population we are facing many issues of electricity. As we create renewable energy from non-renewable energy, like from solar energy and wind energy. Solar energy comes with a condition, like it creates energy only in the presence of sun rays, it requires heat to generate kinetic energy and same with wind energy it requires wind to be blown all the time to generate kinetic energy. This energy can be used in particular places only. Kinetic energy is the energy of motion and can therefore be found in every object that moves. So, in this power generating tiles project we are making use of tiles to generate electricity. Generating off-grid electricity just by walking around or powering streetlights with your footsteps. It consists of spring, gears, two rack and pinion and three generators. The system makes use of rack and pinion arrangement coupled with efficient gearing mechanism to drive mini generators that produce energy when pressed. We make use of harvested kinetic energy generated through vertical press foot movement. These tiles are designed to slightly displace vertically when someone walks on them. This vertical movement results in a rotatory motion that generates electrical energy.
