In fact, I imagined that the "on-demand" could be simply using the brakes: engage the pump only when braking thus assisting braking. In any case, I'm afraid what you're proposing is extremely inefficient. I suspect there are available solutions to a simpler wheel-driven compressor-pump, and I'm interested to know what these solutions are.
thank you man, someone gets it if you find anything that can help us out email me
