Abstract: This project is to design and develop a prototype for a power generating speed bump that will collect power when driven over in either direction. This improves upon the current power generating speed bumps, as they only collect power when driven over in one direction. Once developed our design will help to convert currently unused energy into clean power for many possible applications – it could be used in shopping centre parking lots, in residential neighborhoods or drive through food chains to power the over night lights, traffic lights, etc. The City of Toronto has a vested interest in this project as with an ever growing population the city will require new and innovative methods of power generation as well as need to control speeding through residential communities.
