These Floor Tiles Turn Your Footsteps Into Electricity To Power Smart Cities

These smart tiles by Pavegen convert your footsteps into electricity.

As pedestrians walk across the floor tiles, the weight from their footsteps compresses the electromagnetic generators placed under the floor system.



This turns the kinetic energy from every footstep into 2 to 4 joules of off-grid electricity. One footstep can produce up to 20 seconds of power for an LED light.

Pavegen is ideal for cities and businesses and has already been installed in public streets, train stations, malls, universities, events, and airports.

They have data transmitters that monitor the footfall. This collected data can identify peak hours and prime locations with easy access through a smartphone.

The smart tiles can be fitted with an LED matrix for illumination and come in many styles for indoors and outdoors to create smart cities that work for people.
