With multi layer system of artificial muscle & electric wire at wheel makes it possible to "harvest" energy while driving. Artificial muscle which is contained at this bike can harvest(obtain) energy by 50% of efficiency through vibration at driving. And it's amount of energy generation is calculated to "15.7W/h", Almost 39% of motorized driving of e-bike [40W/h]. Notonly the aspect of energy, butalso environmental effects too. With 500people using Energy Harvesting e-Bike 1 hour/day, it is possible to reduce 15 tons of CO2 which is from generating electricity
