Pavement Electromagnetic Energy Harvesting System from Highway-Speed Vehicles

Energy harvesting technologies from pavements generate carbon-neutral power to help meet the transportation sector’s electricity demands. Researchers will explore energy harvesting technologies in pavements as well as assess potential uses for the harvested energy. They will examine potential challenges in implementing this technology and determine if implementation is feasible.Harvesting energy from moving traffic could provide energy to various items within the transportation network in remote areas that do not have readily available access to the power grid.
