Abstract
The scale at which greenhouse gases are produced by human activities is a global problem, and as such it is being targeted broadly both by political means as well as technologically. One of the major contributors to the emission of green house gases globally, as well as in Sweden, is the transportation sector. This poses an opportunity for technologies that aim to reduce impact of the transport sector in this aspect. ElOnRoad’s ambition is aligned with this opportunity with their electric road system which could help alleviate some of the ramifications that comes from
the largely fossil fueled vehicles of today.
The specifications were written from a set of requirements provided by the super-visor at ElOnRoad. These specifications and... (More)
The scale at which greenhouse gases are produced by human activities is a global problem, and as such it is being targeted broadly both by political means as well as technologically. One of the major contributors to the emission of green house gases globally, as well as in Sweden, is the transportation sector. This poses an opportunity for technologies that aim to reduce impact of the transport sector in this aspect. ElOnRoad’s ambition is aligned with this opportunity with their electric road system which could help alleviate some of the ramifications that comes from
the largely fossil fueled vehicles of today.
The specifications were written from a set of requirements provided by the super-visor at ElOnRoad. These specifications and case studies of other similar solutions were the basis for the concept generation. One concept was selected to be built and tested in a lab environment. Since it is a multifaceted system the mentioned process was done for each subsystem, and for each, numerous concepts were generated. The final concept was a combination of each of the selected subsystem concepts. To a large extent the final design have been built by the authors to reduce costs.
The results were satisfying even though all of the specifications were not met. Bythe use of multiple sensors and actuators the device is able to perform its tasks fully automated. The next step for the system would be to build a full scale prototype and make it work as intended underneath a vehicle. Another possibility is for either single or more subsystems that the device consists of can be implemented in other similar designs. (Less)
