Title: ENERGY GENERATION DEVICE USING MOTION ENERGY CAPABLE OF BEING INCORPORATED INTO A SIDEWALK OR A ROAD FOR LOCAL USE
Abstract:
The energy production device comprises means of recovering a part of the impact energy generated by the pressure of a heavy moving body in motion on a surface. The means of recovering a part of the impact energy comprise electro-active tiles (10) including a lower part (12) embedded in the pavement and an upper part (13), movable with respect to the lower part along a predetermined axis, wherein the upper (13) and lower (12) parts in particular are connected by a magnetized bar (17) suitable for sliding within an induction coil (18) when the upper part (13) moves relative to the lower part (12). The use of the energy produced should be considered for local application connected with an identified human need such as public lighting.
