Major changes are happening in the automotive industry. Some of these are autonomous driving, shared vehicles, connected vehicles (Iot) and the shift to renewable fuels. Two of these fuels are hydrogen and electricity. With both of these fuels an electric motor is used to drive the vehicle.
Despite these fuels being renewable, it doesn’t mean they are free nor are they available everywhere at any given time. They are so called ‘scarce’ goods, windmills and solar panels aren’t free either.
Therefore it is of great importance to use the energy in the most economical way possible. A large part of the energy consumption of a car lies in the consumption of the electric motor.
By adding one or more gears, SmeshGear allows the electric motor to operate in an efficient area for a greater amount of time. This reduces the energy consumption of a vehicle.
