The work was based from previous analytical results that aims to facilitate rotations. It aims to initially use an elliptical track. However, from previous experimental

observations, it was noted that addition of another pendulum, at an angle, instead of introducing a circular track, seemed more effective in inducing rotations.

The idea of inducing rotations with a higher range of frequency is intriguing, with rotations being one of the centerpiece of energy generations or mechanical motion.

Rotations are used because there is a continuous translational energy as compared to oscillations where it loses energy on it’s peak. If the experiment can induce rotations with impacts present and is still capable of rotating to generate electricity, it could lead to many

more possibilities.

Renewable energy using vibration is the main approach of this work, and investigating ways to achieve such energy with rotations using electromechanical device is one of the initial conditions that have been chosen to act as a motivation.
