TECHICISE

Q. What have we made?

We have made TECHICISE; a perfect blend of technology and exercise to benefit mankind.

Q. Why have we made this?

The main aim for making this is to encourage people exercise which will result in their good health and also electricity.

Q. For whom have we made this?

This is to make exercising all the more fun and beneficial for those who don’t like doing it. They will play oblivious to the fact that they are actually exercising.

Material required :

Piezo plates

Plywood

Glue gun

Spray colours

Wires

Rechargeable battery

Cycle

Motors

LCD

Iron stand for cycle

Arduino (We have used UNO)

Breadboard

Diode

Relay

DMM (Digital Multi-Meter)

12 volt white stripped LED

Step 1: How to Make the DYNAMO?

Procedure:

  1. Using a center stand make the bicycle stable and attach the motor to it. Which is also called a DYNAMO.
  2. After making the dynamo connect it to the arduino. Also attach the LCD to the arduino and upload the code.This code will show the amount of voltage generated by the motor when the tyre of the bicycle spins the motor. Ensure the voltage generated by the motor is not more than 7-9 volts else it will result in damage to the arduino.
  3. CODE

LiquidCrystal Library - THANKS FOR POWER

  1. Demonstrates the use a 16x2 LCD display. The LiquidCrystal library works with all LCD displays that are compatible with the Hitachi HD44780 driver. There are many of them out there, and you can usually tell them by the 16-pin interface.

    This sketch prints "THANKS FOR POWER" to the LCD and shows the time.

    The circuit: * LCD RS pin to digital pin 12 * LCD Enable pin to digital pin 11 * LCD D4 pin to digital pin 5 * LCD D5 pin to digital pin 4 * LCD D6 pin to digital pin 3 * LCD D7 pin to digital pin 2 * LCD R/W pin to ground * LCD VSS pin to ground * LCD VCC pin to 5V * 10K resistor: * ends to +5V and ground * wiper to LCD VO pin (pin 3)

    /*

    // include the library code: #include

    // initialize the library by associating any needed LCD interface pin // with the arduino pin number it is connected to const int rs = 12, en = 11, d4 = 5, d5 = 4, d6 = 3, d7 = 2; LiquidCrystal lcd(rs, en, d4, d5, d6, d7);

    void setup() { // initialize serial communication at 9600 bps: Serial.begin(9600); // set up the LCD's number of columns and rows: lcd.begin(16, 2); // Print a message to the LCD. lcd.print("THANKS FOR POWER"); }

    void loop() { // read the input on analog pin=0: int sensorValue=analogRead(A0); // convert the analog reading from 0 to 1023 to voltage 0 to 5v: float voltage = sensorValue * (15.0/1023.0); // print out the value you read: Serial.print("voltage = "); Serial.println(voltage); delay(500); // set the cursor to column 0, line 1 // (note: line 1 is the second row, since counting begins with 0): lcd.setCursor(0, 1); // print the number of seconds since reset: lcd.print("Voltage ="); lcd.print(voltage); }

Step 2: Make the STEPPER NoW!!

1. For making the stepper , solder the piezo plate in a parallel connection as many plates as possible.

2. Place them on the plywood. Cover it Paint it. Note : Do not cover it with a substance that would absorb the force.

3.Now you can connect the DMM and check the electricity generated by jumping on it.

4.Pull out the wires from the stepper and the bicycle motor and connect them to a 12 Volt Re-Chargeable Battery.

5. Also connect LED's as a proof to show the generation of the electricity.

6.You can also add a switch to switch on and off the LED and use the stored power when required.

So, Instead of Jumping on the ground jump on the stepper. Advantages are two You get electricity and also you are fit and healthy.

You can further improve it by using bigger batteries and tougher material and generate large amount of electricity.
