Triboelectric Nanogenerator is a newly invented energy harvesting technology which converts external mechanical energy into electricity based on universally accepted triboelectric principle. In this research paper we have developed an easy way to produce Triboelectric Nanogenerator by using easily available material such as Kapton, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET Plastic Sheet) and Aluminium Foil unlike more complex material such as Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) used by the core researchers. We have also designed and developed a sheet of Triboelectric Nanogenerator and implemented it on electric vehicle and observed the scavenging of friction energy from rolling tyres and also calculated that how much energy Triboelectric Nanogenerator can produce. This successful demonstration of Triboelectric Nanogenerator on wheel and its theoretical calculations provides a promising solution to scavenging the wasted energy of the vehicle and use this wasted energy to increase the battery capacity and range of electric vehicle.
