In this paper, we monitored the electromagnetic waves generated by human activity. We investigated a monitoring system that used the bioelectric potential of a plant. Four subjects walked on the spot at a distance of 60 cm from a rubber tree and we measured the variation in the bioelectric potential of the tree produced by the stepping motion. The results confirmed that the electromagnetic waves generated by a person walking on the spot produced a measurable response in the bioelectric potential of a plant. It was also found that this variation in the bioelectric potential varied in synchrony with the subject's walking pace.
