Wrapping It Up

The Electric Motorcycle team has made great progress over the past week. With almost all the required components acquired the bike is ready to be assembled. Team member Xiong is busy wiring and bench testing the control unit for the bike. Shown below is Xiong with Bob Martin, from Windsor’s Starter Powerhouse, who is giving advice on the wiring of batteries, motor and control unit. The final drive shaft and pulley are currently being machined by green corridor partner Advantage Engineering. This shaft and pulleys will be assembled with motor, two pillow block bearings and the motor into a steel plate to form the drive system for the bike. With time running out on the semester the team is working hard to make the bike as complete as possible to hand over to a future team.

Putting It Together

The E-Motorcycle team enjoyed a successful week. The team received the electric motor, control unit and 3 batteries at a special price from Green Corridor partner, Windsor Starter’s Powerhouse. Also, donated to the team from Scoot-A-Long, was an electric throttle and brake switch. The team was busy on Thursday planning out the precise placement of all the components in the bare motorcycle frame which was completely stripped of all the existing wiring and non essential components. After the final placement of the components is finished, the required wiring to complete the circuit can be acquired. A pillow bearing, belt and pulleys are still required to transfer power from the electric motor to the driveshaft. The team is excited to spend the last weeks of the semester assembling and fabricating the electric motorcycle.

On Track

We, the E-Motorcycle team, are taking the next steps required to have an operating machine by the end of the semester. We are currently heavily involved in the procurement phase. We have been in contact with Windsor Starter’s Powerhouse in regards to possible solutions to get electric power to the ground. We visited the location on Thursday and received valuable information about all the electrical components of the system. Currently, team member Albion, shown below, is creating the Catia drawing of the motorcycle. This model will be a useful tool to virtually position the batteries and electric motor and other components inside the chassis. This will also help to design for an even weight distribution for the bike. The rest of the team is costing out required parts for all possible solutions. We are definitely on track for success.
