Today's society is pursuing a "greener" way of living. This project uses this idea to electricity from one's everyday use of a car. The purpose of this project is to convert the mechanical energy from the rotor in the wheels to electrical energy. A vehicle is always consuming energy in its many moving parts, with so many moving we can make use one of them to convert the mechanical energy into electrical energy. The wheels of the car are moving most the time the car is on so the rotor on the wheels will be an ideal place to capture the mechanical energy. The converting energy will allow for a person to drive car while also reusing the electrical energy to charge a battery. By reusing and recycling this energy, this project will provide a "greener" way of traveling by car.
