The energy harvesting development was to monitor, control and optimize the output power from the gym equipment. The designed utilized Arduino and LabVIEW based Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) that incorporated switchover capability according to the load power. The manual gears-shifting mechanism was improved with the aid of a DC geared motor and L298N controller to be automatically controlled by the user’s input via a keypad.
