TASK
$21.00
 Completed

We need preliminary circuit design done

The Collaborizm Team loves the mission and vision behind this Project. We’d like to sponsor 20 dollars in work to get an initial circuit designed. Please discuss with Narendran Ashok the exact details of this task, and what is fair for the 20 dollars reward.

Hi Narendran Ashok
While looking for good quality, don’t forget that piezo needs impact forces to deform, i.e., the charge generated is proportional to force applied. Even if you have diamond-like quality, unless you provide a good amount of force, it’s useless. So design something that will multiply forces, like a spring assisted striker.

Piezo is extensively used in tank and artillery ammunition. It won’t explode if you hit it with a hammer. It’ll need magnitude a thousand times as much as that.

Is’nt the force generated by our foot be enough for a battery??

That is distributed load, i.e., force/(surface area). This per unit force might be too small. Theoretically yes it should work. It is equal to (body weight carried per leg)/(surface area of a foot). But you never know unless measured.
