INTRODUCTION
• Generating Dance Floor converts the movement of
the dancing crowd into
electricity and uses this
power to change the appearance of the floor’s
surface. The dance floor can also give feedback to
other systems that use electricity, such as the sound
system, motivating the DJ to outperform his/herself
by responding to the energy generated by the crowd.
The floor can have different platforms, providing
unique visual experiences on every energy level,
from loading and average, to the maximum level of
the evening, ultimate high! All visuals are a
continuous
real-time
interaction
between
the
clubbers on the floor made visible, allowing every
individual’s actions to contribute to the collective
experience.
• Making the clubbers and DJ aware of their own
energy, their interaction and their impact on the
‘environment’, is all part of the Sustainable Clubbing
Experience.
Development and technique
• The dance floor is a fusion of electronics, embedded
software and smart durable materials. This is by
researching the ways to generate electricity through
minimal amounts of movement. The actual technology
is further processed by R&D for sustainable energy
solutions.
• At present the demo version of this is to be
implemented by using simple technique with pressure
sensors at floor with spring arrangements.
OVERVIEW
OFTHE
THE ACTUAL
PROJECT
OVERVIEW
OF
ACTUAL
PROJECT
The modified way to make dance floor contains
a rack and pinion assembly connected with
spring mechanism to uplift the stage always.
Whenever the person jumps on stage, the rack
moves to downward direction. Its pinion is
connected to an alternator to generate
electrical energy.
Stepper motors are
connected to this pinion assembly to generate
more power as it consist of four coils in one.
One can charge the battery.

RACK & PINION
• A rack and pinion is a pair of gears which convert rotational
motion into linear motion. The circular pinion engages teeth
on a flat bar - the rack. Rotational motion applied to the
pinion will cause the rack to move to the side, up to the limit
of its travel. For example, in a rack railway, the rotation of a
pinion mounted on a locomotive or a railcar engages a rack
between the rails and pulls a train along a steep slope.
RACK & PINION
• The rack and pinion arrangement is commonly found in the steering
mechanism of cars or other wheeled, steered vehicles. This arrangement
provides a lesser mechanical advantage than other mechanisms such as
recirculating ball, but much less backlash and greater feedback, or
steering "feel". The use of a variable rack was invented by Arthur E
Bishop,[1] so as to improve vehicle response and steering "feel" on-centre,
and that has been fitted to many new vehicles, after he created a hot
forging process to manufacture the racks, thus eliminating any
subsequent need to machine the form of the gear teeth.

STEPPER MOTOR
• A stepper motor, also called stepping motor,
pulse motor or digital motor, is an
electromechanical device which rotates a
discrete step angle when energized
electrically. Stepper motors are synchronous
motors in which rotor’s positions depend
directly on driving signal. Rotary moment is
defined by magnetic energy and is
proportional to the tooth number of the rotor.
Stepper motor
• The main difference between the
stepping motor and a general motor
is that the stepping motor only
powered by a fixed driving voltage
does not rotate.
Types
• There are three basic stepper motor
types. They are :
• Variable-reluctance
• Permanent-magnet
• Hybrid
Springs
• Four springs attached to a wall and a mass. In a
situation like this, the two springs can be
replaced by one with a spring constant of
keq=k1+k2+k3+k4
• F = - Kx
• Where
• x is the displacement vector - the distance and
direction in which the spring is deformed
Springs
• F is the resulting force vector - the magnitude
and direction of the restoring force the spring
exerts
•
• k is the spring constant or force constant of
the spring
SCOPE
• In the future, the technology could be
used for surfaces where there is a high
volume of foot traffic, such as shopping
centers, train stations or airports.
Beginning next year the
"sustainable floor" will be on sale -- for
about 4,000 dollars per square meter.
