KL Deemed To Be University Students Develop E-Bike With Wireless Charging
Wireless charging technology for e-bikes is currently available in only a few places in the world, students from KL Deemed-to-be University develop first-of-its-kind e-bike with wireless charging.
Students from KL Deemed to be University, one of the leading universities in the country for graduation and higher education, have developed a unique e-Bike (electric bike) with Wireless Charging technology. The innovative prototype was developed by a team of 6 like-minded 3rdand 4thyear students from the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of KL College of Engineering along with a few university alumni members. 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 utilizing their free access to state-of-the-art labs and testing facilities provided by the KL Deemed University. The team received mentorship and constant feedback from experts and senior academicians of the university. The university has also offered a grant of Rs 1.4 lakh to the team to incubate this project idea as a start-up.
The e-bike developed by the team at KLU allows people to travel at a maximum speed of 55 Kmph with a charging capacity that can cover between 85 to 100 km in standard conditions in a single recharge that takes 5hours. The charging technology is coupled with the programmable cell balancing feature that releases maximum battery potential for a long-lasting charge. The team has 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.
