A Novel Hybrid Vehicle Architecture: Modeling, Simulation and Experiments

2018

Author(s): Chanumolu R

In the first part of the thesis, the author presented data collected in the city of Bangalore, India from a very commonly seen mode of transportation for hire in India and other emerging economies, namely a three-wheeled vehicle known as the “auto-rickshaw”. From a statistical analysis, it is shown that the typical range is 72.5 km with a mean speed of 12.5 km/h.

In this research, a new Integrated Adaptive Guidance algorithm is developed for a class of Reusable Launch Vehicles (RLVs) that perform suborbital flight. This simple and elegant guidance approach can cater to ascent as well as re-entry phases (from lift off to touch down) of any RLV mission, irrespective of the type of propulsion being employed, rocket or air-breathing.

Suspension design for Uniti, a lightweight urban electric vehicle

2018

Author(s): Daniel A

Uniti aims at providing a smart solution to urban commute, something which is sustainable, fun and in step with the strides made in technology. This involved starting from a clean slate and attacking the very fundamental problem; a two-ton machine meant for carrying four to five people being used by only one person for majority of its lifespan, which makes all the more less sense in an urban environment.

According to recent studies, motor vehicles (excluding motorcycles and other two-wheelers) per 1000 people in India are 167, in China 214 and in Brazil 249. It is being forecasted that by 2050, India and China alone will have 1.1 billion cars and that is more than the number of cars in use in the whole world. In the U.S., the average number of occupants of a single four wheel vehicle is 1.58, which makes it clear that the current vehicle size is highly under utilized.
