PIZOELECTRIC SIDEWALK AND ROADS
Sep 1, 2007

I don´t know if somebody had this idea , is very simple way to generate energy, adding a special pizoelectric plate/material in the movemented sidewalks and roads and the people and cars moving on top of it will generate power, how much energy can generate a 20 ton truck that is moving in it, or a car , or person , or even dog LOL ? I dont know if there are a efficient enough pizoelectric material to this purpose (I read about some stuff about sea pizoelectric powergenerator) , if someone know about this stuff you have the chance to discuss this here smile.
The logic is if we have movement of some way we can generate power, like winds, sea waves ... ! and in this case the fossil fuel that we spent in our cars will be converted in electric energy that permit us to use more electric cars and the electric cars will generate power again and we will maximize the exploitation of the resources, very ideologic , but can this works realy ?

(note. some microfones are pizoelectric and generates a little voltage drop when sound hit the micro.), if sound can move the device and generate a voltage drop, now imagine that a big pizoelectric road can do if the surface is moved 1mm or less downside

Hmm...the piezoelectric wave-harvesters sound the most practical. The idea of putting them in shoes or walkways has been around for a while and has failed to take off due to issues with comfortability and cost. Roadways might actually work too, at least enough to power some streetlights. Piezoelectric generators work best with sudden impacts, so if you put one right after a speed bump you might be able to get a fair amount of power. Just layering an ordinary road with them might not work because they need to be compressed to work, and ordinary roadways just don't change shape much in response to traffic.

I found a road ramp generator in this website :http://cocolico.info/design/road-ramp-generator-better-than-windmill-turbines

Low pollution, high mileage, money saver vehicle are always hot cake demand in public. Electric car is one of them. Current generation prefer electric cars because it is low cost, fuel saver and eco friendly green cars with affordable price and also they can enjoy luxurious ride in it. Electric cars are plug-in battery powered vehicle which is easy to use and there is no need to worry about fuel. Electric vehicles reduce pollution and save ozone layer, which is the big headache for current environment situation. smile
