Choose the stage of Innovation you’ve submitted::

Choose the stage of Innovation you’ve submitted: Idea: Even if the planet doubled the amount of solar and wind power available tomorrow, there would still be a shortage of clean electricity. We need to grab energy from wherever we can find it, which is why piezoelectricity. The charge that gathers in solid materials like crystal and ceramic in response to strain. Idea Prototype Established Scaling

The Basic Idea::

The Basic Idea:

PowerPoint Presentation:

The  pyroelectric effect by which a material generates an electric potential in response to a temperature change. T he linear electromechanical interaction between the mechanical and the electrical state in crystalline materials Piezoelectricity is found in useful applications such as the production and detection of sound, generation of high voltages, electronic frequency generation

Prototype : piezoelectric road could generate power by simply sitting there

PowerPoint Presentation:

Generating power from roads is apparently the new millennium's version of the search for the foun HereWe want to make electricity using a three-layered solar panel instead of asphalt, by collecting the vibration of bridges or other parts of the roadways and harvesting the wind energy of passing carstain of youth A new type of road that generates electricity as traffic drives over it could mean British motorists will one day become a source of cheap power, according to green breakdown provider, the Environmental Transport Association (ETA ). An Energy Harvesting Floor :

PowerPoint Presentation:

Established : It Need To be Developed In India as: Day by day Increasing Traffic Leads to Congestion and Traffic Hazards Problems. So, installing strips of asphalt embedded with piezoelectric materials . enerators could produce 1 MWh of electricity from a four lane highway, or enough to power 2,500 homes .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Princeton University researchers combined silicone and nanoribbons of lead zirconate titanate to create PZT, an ultra-efficient piezoelectric material that can convert up to 80 percent of mechanical energy into electricity. PZT is 100 times more efficient than quartz. It's so efficient, in fact, that the material could be used to harness energy from the minute vibrations found in items like shoes and clothing. That means a piezoelectric-equipped shirt could potentially charge up your cell phone after a day of  activity . Piezoelectric sidewalks, roads, and clothing items haven't taken off in a big way quite yet, but they probably will soon. As we become more reliant on having fully-charged gadgets with us at all times, a shirt or pair of shoes that can prevent a device from dying will be incredibly valuable.

Scaling : “ It has A large Scale of acceptability in metros and On highways ” If the system was installed on every stretch of District Highways it would generate enough energy to run 34,500 small cars . these electric roads can be put in place without harm to the environment they would be a silver lining to the problem of heavy traffic .“ The new 'electric road' will be tested next month when engineers in Israel drive over a road embedded with tiny crystals that produce energy when 'squeezed' by passing vehicles .

PowerPoint Presentation:

A 1km stretch of the power-generating asphalt will generate 400 kilowatts - enough power to run 8 small cars .

The Innovation:

The Innovation Summary of the innovation needs to cover the following titles: Chosen industry: Public Services Chosen technologies: Mobility, Since we can Produce/Store the Electricity for Various day to day need for Ex: Mobile Phones Charging. Etc. Objective: A shortage of clean electricity. We need to grab energy from wherever we can find it , R eplacing all concrete paving slabs with a low-carbon alternative that could power the lights in a building.   Maximum Points: 10

PowerPoint Presentation:

Approach: Every time someone walks over a Electric Road or path t, renewable energy is harvested from the footstep. The technology converts the kinetic energy to electricity which can be stored and used for a variety of applications. - Describe the innovation developed The energy harvested by the Road can immediately power off-grid applications such as pedestrian lighting, way-finding solutions and advertising signage or be stored in a battery. The Electric Road can have the ability to send wireless data using the energy from footsteps and can be integrated with an API as a key technology for smart cities.

Working ::

Working : The Electric Road technology offers the first tangible way for people to engage with renewable energy generation G rowing need to minimise the carbon footprint, Electric Roads offers a way to engage with sustainability . The principle works in a motion such as walking. A single footstep causes pressure when the foot hits the floor. When the flooring is engineered with piezoelectric technology, the electrical charge produced by that pressure is captured by floor sensors, converted to an electrical charge by piezo materials (usually in the form of crystals or ceramics), then stored and used as a power source.

PowerPoint Presentation:

When pressure is applied to an object, a negative charge is produced on the expanded side and a positive charge on the compressed side. Once the pressure is relieved, electrical current flows across the material.


Implementation The top surface of the flooring unit can be made from 100% recycled rubber and the base of the slab is constructed from over 80% recycled materials. The system can be simply retrofitted in place of existing flooring systems as well as specified for new developments . It need to be designed to withstand harsh outdoor locations with high footfall. The slabs are waterproof to allow them to operate efficiently in both internal and external environments Maximum Points: 50

The Working::

The Working: Placing piezoelectric sensor   underneath a road, the vibrations produced by vehicles would be converted into electricity, powering simple systems such as signs and lights “A major source of renewable energy is right beneath our feet — or, more accurately, our tires can produce as much as 44 megawatts of electricity per year from one single-lane, one-kilometer stretch of roadway — enough to power 30,800 homes for a year. The science works as follows: When a car or truck passes over pavement, the pavement vibrates ever so slightly. (You can feel these vibrations if you have ever stood on a road as a truck speeds by)

PowerPoint Presentation:

By placing relatively inexpensive piezoelectric sensors underneath a road, the vibrations produced by vehicles can be converted into electricity, which can be used to power roadside lights, call boxes, and neighboring communities and Italy has The technology can be placed under asphalt during regularly scheduled repaving, and does not affect the vehicles traveling on the road, in terms of “road feel”, fuel efficiency, or emissions.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The First Layer is built with fine grains and sand contents. The a thin layer of asphalt is laid. Piezoelectric generators are layed in quick drying concrete(case for major roads) as per design. Then wired to collective output A bitumen sheet is used to cover all generators to provide better adhesion. Finally a thick layer of asphalt is layed that finishes construction.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The generators harvest the mechanical energy of moving vehicle to electrical energy Then Charged to battery to be distributed. For one km of electric road we can generate 44000 KW-h/ yr 1 generator = 1 sq ft 1 generator =1000-1200/- Approx. May be reduced to 800/- if use an wooden panel for front covering
