Electromagnetic Energy Harvesting Device

An energy harvester and displacement transfer system that converts mechanical energy from vehicles passing over system to electrical energy, using a rack-and-pinion mechanism and displacement plate. The system harnesses energy at highway speeds. The size of the system is relatively small to ensure its embedment within 4 inches (two asphalt lifts). Hence, it can be integrated in a pavement with minimal modifications.


  • Allows energy harvesting from high-speed driving

  • Minimizes the necessary construction and modification to the existing pavement

Market Application

  • Energy production to power roadside infrastructure

  • Highway/road construction
