In today's technologically developed world, power efficiency is considered as one among the most important parameters. World's automotive market is increasing in a exponential rate with induction of new and better technology. This project focuses on the energy that is being lost while braking in conventional system. Although there have been many efforts towards regenerative braking system but the cost involved is very high and also the system is limited to hybrid electric vehicles. This project uses a much simpler system using dynamo's which can be used in any conventional vehicle irrespective of its size. Here in this system part of brake is applied due to contact made by dynamo wheels and the vehicle is brought to a complete stop by use of regular friction brakes. This helps in generating power lost due to friction and also protects the brakes. This simple braking system is comparatively more cost effective and flexible to almost all kind of vehicle with slight modification.
