Abstract: In today’s generation many technological developments have been taking place for tracing the amount of energy generated from the surroundings. The energy production occurs through various ways (via thermal methods, mechanical vibrations and many more). These energies produced can be helpful in various ways (such as charging devices, electronic gadgets). In addition to this, features such as measurement of distance covered and the calories burnt based on the energy generated can be implemented. Hence people would have a generalized idea of their fitness levels. The main aim of the proposed prototype in this paper is to produce energy and at the same time give some additional information of the user’s fitness through a mobile application. The energy harvesting is being done using piezoelectric sensors along with an IoT based pedometer app which will take the step counts in cloud as input and will display distance covered and calories burnt. The product developed is cost efficient and has widespread real time applications.
