Suspension electricity

Clean energy source for cars, tanks and trains. It is coming, it is behind the corner. It was interesting to explore this form of energy: an advanced shock absorber uses the bouncing and vibrations of the vehicle to pump a fluid through a hydraulic motor. The motor is coupled to a generator that produces electricity to drive accessories, relieve strain on the alternator, and charge the battery.
