I am mechanical engineer. I have made prototype of cam follower mechanism for clean energy cheaper than coal. My cam follower prototype is different than todays cam follower system. IN general cam follower cam shaft is rotated and follower move up and down according to cam profile. In my cam follower system,
1. Follower is offset.
2. Force is applied from follower to cam and by using this force cam is rotated.(main difference)
3. Cam is rotated 6 time circumference lenght 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.
