Abstract or Summary
  • In an effort to fill an existing need two small electric service vehicles were designed, constructed, and tested. The first acted as a feasibility study and the second as a design prototype. The vehicles had low cost and the capability of being fabricated by their users as two main design goals. The prototype design vehicle is three wheeled; utilizing a unique asymmetrical design to arrange a full length load box along one side. Motive power is provided by four automotive batteries running an electric motor. Power transmission is by a quiet gear belt drive to one rear wheel. A five solenoid switching system allows for two speeds, forward and reverse, of 5 and 10 mph. The vehicle uses motorcycle wheels and a motorcycle front fork assembly. Brakes are provided in the rear wheels. A full lighting system, consisting of headlight, tail lights, brake lights, and turn signals, is provided. Useful endurance between charges is about five hours at 10 mph. The vehicle is simple to operate and fully capable of negotiating any terrain found on the Oregon State campus.
