A Feasibility Study on Body-Worn Inertial Energy Harvesting during Walking and Running.
At Energy Harvesting 2011, United Kingdom.
The ability to self-power electronic devices from the movement of the human body has application in a number of fields, including defence, sport and healthcare. To realise this vision, sufficient movement has to be experienced by such an energy harvester. In this poster, we present the results of a study that collected acceleration data from 10 people walking and running on a treadmill for 30 seconds each. Each participant was instrumented with six wireless tri-axial accelerometers at key locations around the body. This dataset was used to analyse the magnitude and frequency distribution of accelerations present on the human body, and subsequently estimate the theoretical maximum output power that can be obtained using an energy harvester.
