Shanker Ganesh Krishnamoorthy, a PhD student at Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), with his team is developing a shock absorber that can damp vibration and harvest energy from damping, Startup Lithuania informs.

Shanker pitching his idea for the audience of Kaunas Hacker Games

The KTU’s international student pitched his project at the Hacker Games hackathon in March, which took place at KTU Santaka Valley.

The shock absorber conceived by Shanker and his team could be used in areas where traditional hydraulic and pneumatic damping is not possible due to extreme temperature and pressure conditions. It could provide motion harvested energy, capable of powering sensors and even backing up battery.

“We started at Kaunas Hacker Games and from there, we went to the second phase by scientifically studying the project’s limitations. It resulted in a scientific article, which we presented in a PhD students’ conference at KTU. Then we improved the design and presented it at KTU’s Technorama science fair. There we got some contacts that could help us to develop the project further”, says KTU student.

The student says that although currently his main responsibilities, such as studies and study projects are overtaking the development of the innovations, he will definitely come back to the idea started at Kaunas Hacker Games.
