Nowadays, the human need for electrical energy is getting higher. Due to the declining supply fuel, many efforts have been studied to find renewable energy. One of the studies is building a power generator system that comes from daily human activities. This paper proposes a human footstep power generator using ultrasonic sensor HC-SR04. Only by doing a simply walking on the ground floor, electrical energy can trigger. An HC-SR04 sensor measuring the spring distances from the footstep and activates the motor drive relay and generator that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy and stored in a battery. The test results state that the deeper of a footing step on the floor surface, the greater distance produced and the higher voltage can be generated. The footstep can trigger 7.5 V-8.8 V. Full battery condition can be used to turn on two pieces of 2-watt LED lamps for approximately 5 hours.
