The project of the recuperated energy used by means of transport.

There's no free lunch with energy--the energy captured has to come from somewhere, and that somewhere is by "taxing" or stealing tiny little pulses of kinetic energy from each of the thousands of cars driving by. Even if you placed the device on a downward slope, you are still extracting energy from the vehicles that they would have otherwise had. The only advantage would be to place a device like this one or more car lengths behind a stop sign because capturing energy from a stopping vehicle is actually helping them stop. If a car was forced to stop before reaching the device due to a long line of cars, then it would be robbing small bits of energy from cars trying to accelerate to the stop sign rather than decelerating.

Production of Energy

Supposing that water does not flow and air does not

move, would it be possible that they produce

electrical energy?!!!

Obviously, the answer is no, because they are

devoid of mechanical energy.

Most of the time, the production of electrical energy

is only a transformation from a particular form into

another, e.g. from mechanical energy into electrical


As a matter of fact, Man does not exploit all the mechanical energy of water and air but transform a small portion of it into electrical

energy. This portion is related to used systems of

transforming energy (Characteristics and number…).

Consumption of Energy

Man uses energy for different purposes

such as transportation, industry etc ….What we are interested in is

the energy used for transportation objectives

especially Road transportation which uses either electrical or chemical energy and transforms it into mechanical energy.

Thus, a decisive question should be raised:

Can we transform the mechanical energy of road

Transportation (vehicles) into electrical energy, knowing that we

succeed in transforming the mechanical energy of water

and air into electrical energy?


Any system that we will suggest to transform

Mechanical energy of “road transportation?? into

electrical energy must include the following .


- It must not hinder the traffic. That is to say,

vehicles do not need to speed down

while approaching the system.

- Must not deteriorate the sight of the road.

- vehicles must not change their trajectories, neither upwards nor downwards.

Road Dams


Imagine that your car passes on a spongy pillow

thrown in the middle of a road, what would happen?

Obviously, that pillow will be distorted: its upper

surface will be brought down.

However, your car will keep its trajectory without

descending or ascending.

Over all, our ultimate aim is to invent a system that

is similar to a spongy pillow, a system that bears distortion in the sense that when the

vehicle passes over, the system goes down so that the vehicle does not have to change its trajectory.


All information about the road dams that we are going to

give are a patented invention.

The structure of road dams

The figure which we rely on is very simple. So, for

more details visit our website:

-A:The salient part: The part that is seen by the

driver. It is a part whose form is a curve that

extends to the width of the road and that does not

exceed few centimetres of height.

-B:The underground part: The part that is not seen by

the driver and is connected to the salient part. It

is composed of:

1- A mechanism that transforms vertical, movement to rotational movement.

2- A mechanism that resists distortion.

3- A mechanism that accelerates the movement.

4- A mechanism that resists movement stagnation.

5- A generator.

How does this system work?

When the car passes the salient part of road dam, the

salient part goes down a short

distance. In mechanism -1-, this movement is transformed

into rotational movement. At the same time, the spring

in mechanism -2- is contracted. Concerning mechanism -3-,

it has the role of multiplying the speed of rotation. As

soon as, the vehicle passes the road dam,

the spring expands. Hence, the spring causes a

movement towards the top.

This movement is transformed into a rotational movement

while the salient part returns to its first position.

Mechanism -4- between -3- and -5-, when the salient part

stops, mechanism -4- makes the generator in a state of

rotation for a long time. As a result, the generator

transforms this mechanical energy into electricity.


Most of the mechanisms which we depend on in the road

dams are explained fully in our website:

- All these mechanism that constitute the road dam

are experimented in scientific institutions.

Advantages of road dams:

- It allows us to retrieve a part of the energy taht is

used by vehicles.

- It produces energy near places of consumption of energy–cities- .


The positioning of road dams in the road requires the

expertise of a civil engineers and building enterprises.

Road dams and transportation

We think that road dams will provide adequate

energy for charging electrical vehicles.
