Abstract Energy harvesting is one the major issue. As every particle in the world vibrate so they possess vibrational energy. This paper deal with conversion of vibrational energy which generate in car tires into the power which would be enough to charge car battery or even can run the car. This can be done by using Nano fibers of piezoelectric materials pzt 5a or pvdf in car tires. By fixing them across sidewall and tread walls. This would also help in absorbing the vibration produced in cars and will minimizes the use of damper and shock. And also by converting thermal energy generated in car tires into pyro electricity with the help of pyro electric material. Piezoelectric material uses a mechanism to convert mechanical energy usually vibrational energy and thermal energy into the electrical energy. As due to the load of car sidewall and tread wall undergoes deformation. This deformation occur at regular interval of time and is totally dependent on the rotation of tires. We can also use a specific pyro electric material which would help to convert the thermal energy generated in tires due to the friction from air inside the tire tube and due to road surface into pyroelectrcity.
