To date, many types of electric vehicles have been made into projects by students of engineering colleges. But this time a team of students has developed an electric bike prototype that can be charged with wireless technology. The prototype of this electric bike was presented by a team of 3rd and 4th year students in the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of KL College of Engineering.
This team of students from KL Deemed University has developed this prototype using the same laboratories and testing facilities of the college with the advice of experts and senior education experts. Students have been given a grant of Rs 1.4 lakh for developing the idea of this project as a start-up.
What does this electric bike look like:
According to media reports, the bike has a range of 85 to 100 kilometers on a single charge. It only takes 5 hours for this bike to be fully charged. This bike is also good in terms of speed, this bike can move at speeds of up to 55 kilometers per hour. The charging technology on this bike is integrated with the programmable cell balancing feature which helps to charge the battery for a long time.

Let us tell you that this team has modified the existing bike and prepared it as a prototype of an electric bike with wireless charging. For this prototype, many changes have been made to the design of the bike. In this case, the BLDC motor (brushless DC electric motor) is connected to the gear module through the controller.
In the last few years, the demand for electric two wheelers has increased in the Indian market. At the same time, the government is making continuous efforts in this direction so that the use of electric vehicles can be promoted among the people. Recently, the Department of Heavy Industries (DHI) has made some major amendments to the Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Production (FAM II) project. Under this, the subsidy for electric two-wheelers will be Rs 15,000 per kilowatt.
