Electric Vehicle Design Project

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:

Motors

Drivetrain

Variable frequency drive/ Inverter

Controller

Algorithms

Power/ Battery technology

Regeneration

Electric power Steering

Electronic gearing
