Hello World from Electric Powered Vehicles

May 19, 2012

This is my attempt to define some of the engineering decisions needed to create our new world powered by electric transportation. I will begin with a discussion of bicycles/tricycles and some decisions and their criteria. Our kinder gentler world is long overdue. We absolutely have to make significant progress before fuel hits double digits per gallon even if we temporarily ignore the problems of pollution and sustainability. To further this end I have purchased a trike that I am converting to electric operation. My basic premise is there is a need for basic transportation with a 20 mile range to perform simple tasks such as going to school or fetching some groceries. Discussion will later be expanded to include electric powered automobiles and light trucks. Further expansion will include electric water transportation and finally air. Ladies and gentlemen, charge your batteries!
