SSUET students develop modern speedbreaker

Karachi—The students of Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET) have developed a modern speed breaker which has the capacity to generate its own electric power. It is considered as one of the ramp designs generating its own power, an official of SSUET said here on Tuesday.
The project was accomplished by a group students led by Tehsin Ilahi and includes Arsalan Zafar, Murtaza Mohyuddin, Asif Nawaz, Shoaib Altaf and Khusro Bakht. The generator installed in the ramp automatically switches on when a vehicle passes on it and with just one push of the vehicle it generates 240 watts of energy which is then stored in a battery.
The power generation system could be monitored through a control system which can be easily installed. The speed breaker has been developed with the concept to check wrong direction traffic movement and thus help reduce the traffic accidents.
According to the group members the energy produced from the speed breaker can also be used for traffic and street lights.—APP
