Development of an electric vehicle as an indoor means of transport
2000 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

In this Master Thesis an exhaustive development of the conceptual, mechanical and electrical aspects of an electric vehicle used by disabled people as an indoor means of transportation is carried out. The approach proposed is to divide the project into three stages. The first part consists of determining, analysing and assessing in a clear way the needs of the product, through tests and investigations. In the second stage the most convenient shape of the vehicle is figured out and determined, choosing suitable mechanical elements: and placing them into the vehicle. The third part of the project consists of creating a virtual solid 3D computer model of the vehicle with the obtained design and simulating its behaviour and the strength of the critical parts. It is explained and discussed how powerful CAD/CAM/CAE software is used to model the product and to do a finite element analysis (FEA) of the products, saving time and money in the lead-time. The objective of the present project is to develop a motorised electric vehicle that allows the group of the people who experience slight tares in mobility, move themselves in a fast and comfortable way inside buildings, industrial plants and other installations. For all this, a light motorised uni-personal vehicle (V.L.M.U.), exhibiting the following characteristics, must be developed: Once the present project is completed, the designed and developed vehicle will pass to the next stage of the development process. This means studying the possibility of being patented, manufactured and commercialised in Sweden. It will be used as a means of indoor transportation for the group of people that have slight tares of mobility, for which this product has been developed. Besides this group, the VLMU can also be used in other activities in which it is useful due to its special characteristics or by modifying these characteristics.
