Abstract: A new self-powered cost-effective solution for wearable sensors with wireless connectivity is presented. A demonstrator system is integrated in a sole of a shoe and powered by energy harvesting from walking. Force sensors measure the impact force at different positions of the sole. The collected data is processed and transmitted to a smartphone using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). On the smartphone, the data is analyzed and visualized. In a prototypical implementation, the complete system was built into the sole of a shoe. Initial tests showed that the harvested energy is sufficient for a stable operation of the embedded system.
