Abstract
VEHICLES ARE INEFFICIENT AT LOW SPEEDS AND DISPORPORTIONATELY HEAVY. UNIQUE HAS AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT FOR A PERMANENT MAGNET HOLLOW CYLINDER ELECTROMAGNETIC TRANSDUCER THAT CAN FUNCTION AS A COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT AND EFFEICIENT DIRECT DRIVE WHEEL MOUNTED TRACTION MOTOR AT LESS THAN ONE HALF THE SIZE AND WEIGHT OF CONVENTIONAL EV TRACTION MOTORS. THIS MOTOR COMBINED WITH A REVOLUTIONARY NEW COMPUTER CONTROLLED VERTICAL STRUT SUSPENSION HAS THE CAPABILITY TO PROPEL A TACTICAL ROBOTIC VEHICLE OVER BATTLEFIELD AMBIENT TERRAIN OUICKLY, GUIETLY AND SMOOTHLY THE RESEARCH WILL DETERMINE OPTIMUM DESIGN PARAMETERS,POTENTIAL THE RESEARCH WILL DETERMINE OPTIMUM DESIGN PARAMETERS, POTENTIAL VEHICLE APPLICATIONS AND COST EFFECTIVENESS OF THE SYSTEM. THE WORK PLAN ENTAILS THE EVALUATION OF A WORKING MODEL AND CONCLUDES WITH A COMPUTER ANALYSIS OF PERFORMANCE DATA. THE EVALUATION WILL REFERENCE 3 COMPILED ON UNIQUE'S CONVENTIONALLY POWERED ELECTREK EV.
