Power Walker believes there is a great potential in harvesting green energy for personal use. The company's goal is to harvest reusable energy from an average person's everyday errands. Our products SolexPRO E and SolexPRO F aim to harvest energy from simple walking motion. These two products convert mechanical energy from the motion of the feet to electrical energy which is stored as electrical potential in batteries. SolexPRO E will be designed based upon an electrical system while SolexPRO F will be designed based upon a fluid system. Our objective is to choose the product with the most durability, efficiency, safety, and user satisfaction.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
