A shock absorber that harnesses energy from small bumps in the road
The shock absorber is generating electricity while it smoothes the ride more effectively than conventional shocks.
Known drawbacks of design:
Status of realization:
Region of use:
The form is fitting the transportation industry!
An alternative energy source previously untapped by vehicles: the suspension system. The energy of a vehicle traversing varying roads and terrain is significant dissipated as heat through conventional shock absorbers. GenShock, recovers this energy for fuel economy gains, providing additional onboard electricity. GenShock improves ride quality via an adaptable, variable-damping suspension. GenShock is a turnkey replacement for standard shock absorbers and little to no maintenance.
The design fits the context of the transportation industry.
