Hybrid hydraulic-electric system for light electric vehicles controlled by muscle fatigue sensors

Light electric vehicles such as e-bikes, e-scooters and e-cars have increased in popularity but still they have many problems. Their battery capacity and motor efficiency can strongly limit the riders. The main objective of the project is to design a hybrid electro-hydraulic system for chainless pedaling vehicles. Our idea is a coupled motor generator system with high efficiency and variable pedal torque. To Control the pedal torque we are going to design a skin touch sensor to detect the muscle fatigue. In addition, we will develop a protocol for optimizing the aerodynamic parameters of the vehicle structure. Daanaa Resolution Inc. is an R&D company who works on EV infrastructure and now they want to investigate a new hybrid system which has a higher power and efficiency. This project can help them to build and launch an optimized product with a high-efficiency power generation and transmission system and aerodynamic structure.
