I am looking for a way to get rid of battery for a small AVR board mounted inside of a hubcap or aluminium alloy inside of rotating car wheel.
I am not able to mount anything on the fixed side of the car, only inside of rotating wheel. Also, it would be ideal if it could mechanically fit into hubcap center since it would eliminate balancing problems on high speeds. I need to power AVR only when wheel is rotating.
I have seen some hand lamps that work for a while after you shake them well. Could some variant of this be applied? I was googling around but I guess I was not using good keywords. Are you aware of some helpfull links that you could share?
I have big doubts that this goal can be achieved by the hobbist, but again, if hope didn't exist you wouldn't be reading this.
All ideas are welcome! :lol: :roll: :lol:
