Title (EN) FLOORING SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF MAKING AND USING SAME
(FR) SYSTÈMES DE PLANCHÉIAGE ET LEURS PROCÉDÉS DE FABRICATION ET D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) The various embodiments of the present invention are directed to floating floor systems and to methods of making and using the floor systems. The floating floor systems generally include a floating flooring unit (704) and a mechanical - energy-harvesting device (710). The mechanical- energy-harvesting device can be incorporated into the flooring unit component at a variety of locations. The floor systems can further include an energy storage device (712) and/or an electronic component that will be actuated or driven by the electricity generated.
(FR) Les divers modes de réalisation de la présente invention portent sur des systèmes de plancher flottant et sur des procédés de fabrication et d'utilisation des systèmes de plancher. Les systèmes de plancher flottant comprennent de façon générale une unité de planchéiage flottant et un dispositif de captage d'énergie mécanique. Le dispositif de captage d'énergie mécanique peut être incorporé dans le composant d'unité de planchéiage à divers emplacements. Les systèmes de plancher peuvent en outre comprendre un dispositif de stockage d'énergie et/ou un composant électronique qui seront actionnés ou entraînés par l'électricité générée.
