Title
(EN) LOW PROFILE, SURFACE-MOUNTED POWER GENERATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE PRODUCTION D'ÉNERGIE EXTRA PLAT MONTÉ EN SURFACE
Abstract
(EN)
A low-profile, surface mount vehicle energy harvester including a low-profile, surface mount subunit having an upper surface forming a roadway surface; a vehicle activated treadle on the subunit, the vehicle activated treadle moveable between a first position in which an upper surface of the treadle is at an angle with respect to the upper surface of the roadway surface and a second position in which the upper surface of the treadle is flush with the upper surface of the roadway surface; a generator that generates power in response to movement of the vehicle activated treadle; and an entry ramp at a first end of the harvester roadway surface; and an exit ramp at a second end of the harvester roadway surface.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un capteur d'énergie comprenant: une sous-unité extra plate montée en surface dont la surface supérieure constitue une partie de la chaussée; une pédale activée par le passage des véhicules placée sur la sous-unité et mobile entre une première position où sa surface supérieure fait un angle avec celle de la chaussée et une deuxième position où elle affleure celle de la chaussée; un générateur produisant de l'énergie lorsqu'un véhicule passe sur la pédale; un plan incliné placé à l'entrée du capteur; et un plan incliné placé à la sortie du capteur.
