Technology

 

BrumbeeTM is the first in-wheel electric vehicle technology to stabilise differences in driving force and slip when wheels simultaneously encounter different types of surfaces.

Using advanced embedded microcontroller technology and patented algorithms, each wheel makes its own decisions about speed and driving force.

 

  • Electric in-wheel motors
  • Direct drive – high torque
  • No gears, transmission or diff
  • All wheel drive
  • Excellent roadholding and handling
  • Lithium batteries
  • Patented electronic controls
  • No gears to reduce efficiency
  • All wheel drive
  • Suits any small vehicke
  • Charge from:
    • Standard power outlet
    • Roof-mounted solar cells
    • Induction loop

Principles of Operation

The Brumbee technology permits each wheel to operate autonomously in order to handle different slip conditions as the vehicle traverses different pavement types and different amounts of bounce.

Prototype

The working prototype is based on an E-Z-GO RXV 2-seat golf buggy.
