Front view of Beta design - low carbon vehicle. One piece moulded body and chassis using a specific moulding technique.
|Rear view of Beta design - low carbon vehicle. One piece moulded design of thermo-form carbon fibre reinforced plastic (PEEK) for vehicle platform body and chassis.|
This is a concept design of a two-seat low carbon vehicle.
|The passenger is seated behind the driver. Alternatively , this vehicle platform may be specified with a single driver's seat , therefore providing the option of increased packaging space for energy storage ,and/or hybrid systems.|
|A four- seat vehicle, and a six -seat family vehicle/people carrier. Chassis and BIW panels are composite fibre reinforced polymers (e.g. natural polymers and fibres which mitigate the consequential environmental impact).|
Single seat vehicle platform, designed for either urban, or off-road (ATV) applications.
A concept variation of the urban / off-road vehicle platform.
A strong focus is placed on comfort specifications within these vehicles, which feature high-backed, arm-chair seats for the occupants.
Easy access is carefully considered within the proposed specifications, which feature flat-deck cabins and large wide-opening doors.
Smooth , curved shapes are a key design feature of the vehicle BIW , and window panels.
Previous projects include the design and outsourced manufacture to customer specifications ,of bespoke linkage pins with unique integral fasteners that are built into the pin shaft.
|Concept symmetrical tractor platform design that comprises of identical front and rear axle /hydraulic sub-assemblies in order to simplify the manufacturing process and reduce cost of build and replacement components, by duplication.|
|The power source is central to the platform, with a sliding operators cab above, designed for front /rear location, or any position in between to suit individual applications and tasks.|
The tractor cab can be moved on locating rails to a rear position on the platform.
Front view of the tractor platform.
Aerial plan view of the tractor, with the cab positioned in a central location.
Tractor chassis platform, which is symmetrical with identical hydraulic link arms for both front and rear operations.
Exploded view of the various sub- assemblies, with the power plant located in a central position.
Mechanically charged metal air-battery cell, for low carbon vehicle platforms. The waste metal oxide fuel, is removed and recycled .
|Hydrogen fuel cell , designed for a low carbon vehicle platform. The hydrogen may be stored within ammonia borane as a solid (e.g. pellet form) or as a slurry.Dehydrogenated borane is removed for rehydrogenation, as part of the fuel cycle process.|
