The engineer coordinates the project "Zero-emission Cargo Bike for Smart Cities", which has now produced a first prototype. The newly developed fully electric cargo wheel is three meters long and 170 kilograms. The vehicle can also reach a speed of up to 45 kilometers per hour and carry up to 100 kilograms of load.
Bike is said to be designed quickly
is the wheel in the long-tail format, so that the load is not transported in front of the driver as with a classic cargo bike, but behind it. The electric compartment scooter, which is not referred to as a bicycle due to the lack of pedals, makes a specially developed quick charging system including recuperation -capable battery. “A high-quality battery system with an active heating and cooling system makes it possible to charge the battery on a conventional public AC charging station to up to 80 percent within 30 minutes. That saves a lot of time, ”says Bastian Mayer, project manager for ZEC-Bike from the DLR-FK, in an report from the University of Ulm. The all-wheel drive used also contributes to a higher energy efficiency of the electric bike.
