I’d like to design an Electric Vehicle for a fun learning challenge.
I’ve been working with quite a few AGV OEMs recently, and along with my passion for electric vehicles, I’ve really gotten interested in learning more about the design of electric vehicles.
The goal is to design and maybe build the optimal Electric Production Vehicle.
I figure the project will progress something like this:
Phase 1: Outline various EV architectures
Phase 2: Aggregate and Evaluate current technology
Phase 3: Model EV system architectures and evaluate pros and cons
Phase 4: Identify optimal EV architecture and refine
Phase 5: Systems design
Phase 6: Spec component technology
Phase 7: Draft component integration prints
Phase 8: Compile BOM
Phase 9: GoFundMe proposal to raise funds to build a prototype
Phase 10: Build prototype
Areas of interest:
Variable frequency drive/ Inverter
Power/ Battery technology
Electric power Steering
