Abstract

The popularity of electric bicycles is on the rise. These bikes are equipped with electrical components that allow them to safely navigate streets with other vehicles, by matching traffic speed. Currently, most electric bicycles use hub motors, but these can be expensive due to the complex gear systems that increase torque. Our solution is an electric bike with a non-hub BLDC motor that uses a pinion-pulley system for the motor-wheel connection. This system offers flexible gear ratios by adjusting the number of teeth in the pinion and pulley, is more cost-effective than hub motors, and generates a high torque of 70 NM.
