Objetivo:
Analisar modelos do mercado e estud-los nos seguintes aspectos:
a) Conceito base e arquitectura tcnica
b) Sistema eltrico e de propulso
c) Sistema de inclinao/alterao de geometria (se aplicvel), materiais e estrutura do veculo.

NOTA:
Qual a razo do crescimento exponencial da oferta do mercado a nvel de veculos eltricos?
Os veculos, inicialmente, eram movidos a vapor, a eletricidade ou a gasolina. Em virtude do
desenvolvimento da indstria do petrleo, os veculos movidos a gasolina dominaram o
mercado.
Atualmente, em virtude da conscincia ambiental sobre os malefcios causados ao meio
ambiente, em consequncia da queima do petrleo pelos veculos com motores de
combusto interna, vem aumentando a cada dia a quantidade veculos eltricos em
circulao.
A energia eltrica pode ser obtida sem prejudicar o meio ambiente. Energia hidreltrica,
energia solar e energia elica so exemplos de obteno de energia a baixo custo. A energia
elica e energia solar podem ser obtidas pelo prprio usurio do veculo eltrico em sua
prpria residncia.
Portanto, podemos afirmar que o verdadeiro veculoflex o eltrico, pois, a sua fonte de
energia, a eletricidade, pode ser obtida de diversas fontes. A expectativa de que as novas
formas de obteno de energia eltrica aumentem nos prximos anos. Os
veculoseltricosso verdadeiramente independentes quando se fala de energia para
alimentar o seu motor.

1. URB-e

Existente em 2 verses: a GP e a Commuter. O


princpio base exatamente o mesmo, apenas se distingue a primeira da segunda pelo fato de
esta possuir uma nica roda traseira, enquanto que a verso Commuter possui duas.

a) Conceito base e arquitectura tcnica

We started a company in March 2011 called ideapiphany. The goal of this


company was to design and develop products for growing consumer market needs.
One of the areas we were interested in was the growing trend for urban commuters
to utilize alternative forms of clean energy transportation to commute.
The Last Mile Problem
Because of increased congestion within most cities worldwide and todays high cost
of vehicle ownership, more and more commuters are utilizing public transportation
to commute. This is not only a more convenient and cost-effective way to travel,
but it is also a much greener approach to commuting.
The one problem associated with using public transportation, however, is how does
one get to their final destination after getting off the train or bus? This scenario is
what is often referred to as the last mile. We decided this was an important
enough problem to solve, so we launched a company called EgoLogical Mobility
Solutions and began to develop our first product, URB-E.
The Smartest, Sleekest Solution
Although many commuters are utilizing bikes to address this need, it is not always
easy or convenient to take a bicycle onto a packed train or bus during rush hour.
The other problem with bicycles is, in most cases, commuters leave their bikes
locked on the street and risk vandalism and theft. URB-E solves this problem by
being able to always stay with you.
There are other e-vehicles currently on the market that are trying to address the
last mile scenario, but none of them compare to URB-E with price, ease of use, and
compact portability.

We were also able to partner with former lead engineer at Porsche, Sven
Etzelsberger, to help us with the final engineering specs, so we like to say it has the
same engineering DNA as Porsche! In sum, we feel our latest version URB-E is the
ultimate personal mobility device.
URB-Ease and Efficiency
URB-E is made from recyclable aircraft grade aluminum that has been machined to
reduce all but the essential material for maximum weight reduction and reveal the
iconic hole pattern, similar to how race cars and aircraft are built.
URB-E has many beneficial features such as an integrated luggage rack, a patented
folding mechanism and shock absorbing seat for an extremely comfortable ride, led
lighting, and replaceable color sleeve inserts for creating a personalized look. It
also has an option to be a three-wheel trike version for more stability in slower
moving pedestrian traffic, or a more aggressive two wheel GP edition for a little
more freedom and excitement. There is also an integrated universal smartphone
mount with a custom app being developed to monitor URB-Es speed, battery,
range, and navigation, as well as being able to charge your phone and other
devices with the integrated USB port.

b) Sistema eltrico e de propulso


O URB-e alimentado por uma bateria de Ltio com 36V, 10.5 A/he que debita cerca de 250W
de potncia. O veculo atinge uma velocidade mxima de 24 km/h. recarregado em cerca de
3h ligando-o a qualquer tomada de 110-220V. Possui uma autonomia de cerca de 30km.

c)

Sistema de inclinao/alterao de geometria, materiais e estrutura do veculo

O URB-e possui um sistema de inclinao/alterao de geometria que foi concebido para


reduzir o seu volume e o tornar mais fcil de transportar. O quadro possui uma estrutura
retangular e fabricado em alumnio.

2. Hyundai E4U

Hyundai has been showcasing dozens of new cars at the 2013 Seoul Motor Show for the past
week, but the one new concept vehicle thats turned many heads is the companys yellow,
quirky, all-electric E4U one-seater, which looks like a Segway mated with a giant egg.
In fact, the E in the Hyundai E4U, according to Tech-On, represents egg, evolution, and
ecology.
A product of Hyundais Advanced Design Department, the Hyundai E4U is a 24-volt electric
vehicle that can move in any direction, with its maximum speed topping out around 18 miles
per hour. The E4Us propulsion is controlled by foot pedals, which causes the E4Us front to tilt
and move forward thanks to its rotating front sphere and two training wheels on the back.
Turning the vehicle is caused by pushing on the pedal closest to the direction you want to turn.

As if this vehicle didnt stand out enough, the roof of the Hyundai E4U actually doubles as a
helmet for the single passenger, which also comes with a chinstrap.
