Abstract: Vehicular air drag production is a neglected source of wind energy. One major factor that make this wind harvesting difficult is determining the proper location and time that would provide the greatest wind velocity for use in micro-wind technology harvesting. In this study, the road geometry, time of the day and the type of vehicles were considered in the vehicular air drag production and were analyzed using MATLAB Statistical tools. Results showed that these factors significantly affect the production of vehicular air drag.

Keywords: vehicular air drag, wind speed, road geometry, wind energy harvesting
