Byron M. Young, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and colleagues have developed a new way to design a vehicle that uses electrical power to drive a wheel.
The work, published in the journal Nature Communications, demonstrates the feasibility of an electric vehicle that can be driven at low speeds, like a bicycle, or high speeds, such as an airplane.
The team’s system, called “Electric Wheel” for short, uses a system of sensors to detect when a vehicle is about to overtake a moving obstacle.
A wheel can then steer itself into the way it is approaching, with the motor driving the wheels through a set of gears that are controlled by the sensors.
“Our system is a first-of-its-kind design that is very scalable and scalable,” said Young.
This is the first time a single-module electric vehicle system has been successfully tested and shown to drive at high speeds.
There are a lot of challenges that need to be addressed before an electric drive can be scaled up to commercial scale, such being able to drive on highways, and managing high speeds in a large number of vehicles.
For a vehicle to be able to be safely and efficiently used in a car, the vehicle must be able, on its own, to get from point A to point B. According to Young, the team developed a design that uses multiple sensors to collect data on the direction of travel.
Using these sensors, the electric wheel is designed to be very low speed and very low power.
They have also designed an electric system that is able to maintain high speed and low power for a long time.
At the same time, the design also uses sensors that can detect when the vehicle is approaching an obstacle, which could help to reduce the time that a vehicle spends in a straight line.
Young’s team used a combination of sensors and computer algorithms to build the prototype, which has been tested on a range of vehicles and was capable of moving at up to 150 miles per hour.
It has been designed to work in tandem with an existing battery system, and is also being used in other projects around the world.
An electric vehicle can be very challenging to build, said Young, who is also a research associate at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the UW-Madison.
His team is currently working on a second prototype that is designed specifically for commercial applications.
What’s more, this is a novel approach to building an electric driving system, he said.
Its design uses both sensors and actuators, which are two different types of devices.
If they work well, they can be used to design complex systems that are able to operate at very high speeds without any external support, such that a driverless car would be able operate at a low speed without a human in the vehicle.
To further understand how they work, the researchers developed a computer algorithm that could simulate the way the vehicle drives on roads.
These simulation results showed that the simulation worked well enough to show that it could drive at speeds that are similar to a bicycle.
Byron M Young, an assistant professor of electrical engineering at UW-Milwaukee, and his colleagues have demonstrated a new system that uses an electro-hydraulic actuator to move a motor at low speed.
