This team is working to create a flow harnessing device that will convert kinetic energy into electricity in order to recharge the battery of an electric vehicle in an effort to support the automotive industry’s drive to attract a broader range of customers into the electric vehicle market. The project is based on the concept of harnessing external flow energy to increase the range of an electric or hybrid vehicle. By creating this device, the team hopes to improve the overall performance of electrical or hybrid vehicles so that consumers are motivated to opt into this mode of transportation, rather than using fossil fuel-dependent vehicles, aiming to create a more environmentally and economically sustainable future.
