The use of transportation residual energy can represent an alternative energy source to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. In specific economic environments, in which the road conditions are not good, the vibration of the vehicles’ masses, represent a potential enormous source for such alternative energy source. In this paper, the conceptual design of an energy-harvesting accessory to be installed in existing suspensions of vehicles, is presented. The principles of operation include an electromagnetic generator, a rectifier and a battery. Validation of the proposed accessory is made through simulation that indicates the feasibility of this device.
