The cheapest and new source of energy is obtained by the conversion of one form of energy into other. The renewable sources of energy become more popular because of nonpolluting and easily available from the nature. One such energy is explained in this paper. The number of vehicles passing over the speed breaker on the road is increasing day by day. Such speed breakers are designed for heavy vehicles, thus increasing input torque and ultimately increasing the power as output. There are many suitable and compact mechanisms to enhance efficiency. The generated power can be used for the lamps near the speed breakers and this will be a great boon for the rural villages too. In this paper it is mainly focused on the working of the newly developed rack and ratchet (pinion) mechanism which is used to develop the power from speed breakers, its practical implementation.

Key Words: Speed breaker, renewable energy, electrical power, rack and ratchet mechanism
