Electronic gadgets nowadays have become an essential part of daily human life. Electronic gadgets are increasing in popularity because of the convenience to use, it can provide many kinds of information with a single touch from the web. However, it needs electrical energy source operation. With the increasing demand for electrical power, all countries are facing some technical issues with the consistency of current power sources and they also tend to fail from time to time. To address these problems, several alternative power systems are proposed; among these the piezoelectric power system proves to be the best choice, since this system is a low cost and one-time investment. This paper explores how to create an electrical source by using a piezoelectric transducer. Piezoelectric transducers (PZT) are special types of materials that can convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. For this particular, this project has proposed the concept of piezoelectric power generation to use shoe pressure. Whenever someone walks by wearing this specialized shoe, pressure is exerted on the shoe sole due to weight and muscular tension. The piezoelectric generator embedded into the sole of the shoe converted the mechanical energy into electrical energy and a rechargeable battery stored management system will store the energy as electrical energy for further uses. The proposed system has been designed and implemented the shoe sole, the result shows good compliance with theory and design. These results will help the other researchers who are working in this field.
