Industrialized modern world consumes vast amount of energy mostly in the form of electrical energy. From recent statistics on global warming, fuel shortage, pollution, problems with nuclear power and deregulation of electrical energy indicates that failure of investigating new energy sources to generate electricity can cause a huge power crisis in the near future, especially for people of developing countries like Bangladesh. Therefore, to meet future energy demand, it is must to implement some

This research shows a way to utilize the energy in the form of jerking pressure which is wasted during the vehicles passes over a speed breaker. Normally, a lot of energy is produced due to jerking which can be tapped and converted to electricity by using a simple mechanism called roller mechanism very easily and efficiently. The amount of generated electricity depends on the number of vehicle and weight of the vehicle passing over the speed breaker. Due to the high increasing rate of vehicle number day by day, this system can fulfill the demand of electricity of a small area, very effectively and can be treated as a mini power plant for an individual area.
