Tricycle powered by pedals and electricity

Tricycle powered by pedals and electricity
An electric tricycle is a bicycle having three wheels with an electric motor used to power the vehicle. The tricycle which is powered by electricity would be very helpful for people who use cycles in there daily life. It would not only increase the speed of the cycle but also helps them in paddling.

Concept :

The concept of this project is the same as many electric vehicles we discussed before in Automobile Projects such as Solar Powered Cycle. It is powered by a motor which is connected with a battery that is charged with regular electricity available at home.
If you want, you can use some solar plates in the vehicle itself to charge its batteries.

Components needed for this project are similar to those which we used in a solar bicycle project and they are:

  • Lithium-ion battery 
  • DC-DC boost converter 
  • Solar panel Motor and 
  • Motor controller

Why Tricycles?
There are many advantages to use tricycle :
  • It is lighter than any vehicle around
  • It can be used to carry more than one person
  • There are pedals so dependence on electricity is not as much as a motorbike.
  • Enough space to place a large battery.
