Abstract

Nowadays personal and efficient modes of transportation used in India include bicycles, mopeds, and motorcycles. These mopeds and motorcycles tend to be more costly in terms of initial buying cost, ever-rising prices of fuels required for driving these vehicles & high maintenance costs. Also, the fossil fuel deposits are getting depleted day by day and it’s hard to find the new ones to replace them. Moreover, pollution due to these fuels is jeopardizing the environment continuously. On the other hand, the low buying cost and zero running cost of traditional bicycle sometimes tend to be inconceivable as lots of muscle power is wasted by rider propelling the pedals to rotate the driving rear wheel. Keeping all this in mind, we proposed a new way to cater to people as well as to provide a solution for environmental pollution. Thus Solar Energy is one of the freely available energy sources in nature which could be harnessed easily and converted to electrical energy using a low-cost mechanism such as solar panel and used for the purpose of instilling mobility. Hence, a Solar Powered Electric Bicycle is proposed over here. Our solar powered electric bicycle developed is driven by Brush-less DC motor. The solar panels mounted, on the bicycle, which will charge the battery, which in turn drive the motor.
