Comments Off on Researchers develop energy-generating car tires

Scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have developed an innovative car tire that harvests energy from friction. The tire is embedded with a new nanogenerator and electrodes, and when it rubs against the road it produces a small electric current. This occurrence is known as the triboelectric effect, and it reclaims energy that is otherwise lost during transit. The development has obvious applications for electric cars, and it could also improve the fuel efficiency of petrol-sucking vehicles.
