I have made cam follower mechanism for clean energy cheaper than coal. Cam and follower is generally used to open and close valve of internal combustion engine. In general cam follower mechanism, cam shaft is rotated and follower move up and down according to cam profile. My cam follower system is different. In my cam follower system,
1. Follower is offset. Follower is not inline with the cam center.
2. Force is applied from follower to cam and by using this force cam is rotated.
3. Follower come down little bit and rotate cam 6 times circumference length of follower displacement at 70% force.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
