A unique electric bike has been created by the students of KL Deemed University, Hyderabad. It has a feature of wireless charging technology.
This electric bike has made by a team of six students from 3rd and 4th year students from the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of KL College of Engineering along with a few university alumni members.
This bike will allow you to to travel at a maximum speed of 55 kmph with a charging capacity that can cover between 85 and 100 km in standard conditions in a single recharge that takes five hours.
The charging technology is coupled with the programmable cell balancing feature that releases maximum battery potential for a long-lasting charge.
The e-bike has futuristic features, including cell balancing and wireless charging, which are only available in a few places around the world.
The team developed the initial concept and prototype utilising their free access to the labs and testing facilities provided by the university, which also has campuses in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
The team retrofitted an existing bike and modified it into a prototype for e-bikes with wireless charging. The team carried out several variations in the design of the bike which include incorporating the BLDC motor (Brushless DC electric motor) to gear modules through the controller.
Other team members who were part of the project were Charan Sai Tiruvuri, Sandeep, Kireeti Polasi, S. Lokesh Babu, V. Sai Praveen, all students from the B. Tech EEE 2017 batch, and K. Yashwanth Sai, who is an alumni of the EEE department.
