Smart-shoes self powered by walking

Smart shoesInside view on the shoe

Within the framework of the AWE project, Microsys has developed a shoe able to harvest energy from walking in order to power a microsystem. The harvesting system, based on Microsys EP11186268 patent, produces enough energy to measure 1-axis acceleration at 30 Hz and to send the data wirelessly to a remote data concentrator station. Both the energy harvesting system and the microsystem have been integrated in the shoe’s sole. Potential applications are sport performance analysis, gait analysis, activity monitoring etc.
