Abstract This research focuses on boosting the power generated by traditional wind turbines to transition its implementation in urban regions. The aerodynamic properties of falling helicopter seeds were analyzed through computational method. This was further developed into an innovative, small-scale, and eco-friendly application that is driven by the momentum of vehicles in the street.
