The increasing demand for electricity and limited supply off uel calls for the need of alternative sources of energy. Through this project, we display a method to light up the street lights and suburbs close to high ways by extracting t he i m p u l s e e n e r gy on the speed bumps by the auto mobiles .
This project harvest energy from speed breaker.When vehicles are in motion they produce many forms of energy like kinetic energy due to its motion, heat energy due to friction and potential energy.This energy is simply wasted. With this project we use this wasted energy and produce electric energy. So be ready and get started with the project.
Electricity is generated by replacing the traditional speed breakers with some simple mechanism. As vehicles pass over the speed breakers,they spin the rollers which are connected to a generator which in turn generate electricity. This method is an effective way to produce electricity as the numbers of vehicles on the road are ever increasing. Also the cost of fabrication of the model is low. It can be effectively placed near traffic lights, at the entrance of parking lots and any other place where the traffic density is high. Rollersare fixed on a wooden ramp on which vehicle passes.As vehicle passes over it,it starts moving.
