Energy is one of the basic quantitative properties describing a physical system or object`s state. Energy can be transformed among a number of forms that may each manifest and be measurable in differing ways. The total energy of a system can be calculated by simple addition when it is composed of multiple non-interacting parts or has multiple distinct forms of energy. Common energy forms include the kinetic energy of a moving object. In the earlier attempt we required suspension system for links getting back to the original position here the other joint does the return stroke steadily thus overcoming the limitations of the suspension effect . In this present paper an attempt has been made to tap the energy and generate the power by the road power generating system. This is done by introducing the powered bearing which rotates the shaft in one direction and moves freely over rollers in other direction. The return stroke is operated by the other joint, where as earlier the same return stroke was operated by the suspension system. The powered bearing is similar to the small toothed wheel in the rear tires of the normal bicycles. When the vehicle wheel passes over the third joint the first joint returns to the original position. Similarly when a vehicle passes over the first joint, the third join returns to the original position. By introducing this mechanism, we could operate 12 volts DC Motor at 30 RPM generating 70 watts electric power.
