Pavegen is a breakthrough smart city technology that creates high engagement with citizens by converting their footsteps into energy, data and rewards.
Pavegen is the global leader in converting footfall into off-grid power and data. We supply both permanent installations and experiential activations and can power off-grid applications such as lighting, data capture and transmission, and environmental monitoring. Each footstep on a Pavegen walkway generates 2 to 4 joules of off-grid electrical energy or around 5 watts of power for the duration of a footstep. Bluetooth beacons in the system connect to smartphones, rewarding users for their steps and generating permission-based analytics. The tech can operate as a standalone or be embedded simply into existing web platforms.
Pavegen is the global leader in harvesting energy and data from footfall. Our mission is to make our technology available to all communities, empowering people for a better world. Our patented technology connects people to sustainability and smart cities, creating powerful experiences which convert footsteps into off-grid energy, rich data and rewards. We call this the internet of beings, making cities smarter with every step.
Pavegen supplies both permanent installations and experiential activations and we power off-grid applications such as games, lighting, and environmental monitoring. With embedded Low-Power Bluetooth connectivity, we can register the footsteps of individuals via our apps. When we combine this real-time footfall data with analytics, we create powerful insights into the behaviours of people interacting with our systems.
