Electric three-wheelers design for handicapped persons
Electric autos or electric autos three-wheelers are gaining momentum all over India. Here in this article, we will be discussing all-electric three-wheelers (autos) designs especially for handicapped people which means it can also be run by a handicapped person or handicapped user-friendly vehicle.
Electric autos are zero-emission and quieter vehicles than conventional IC engines. Electric autos can be propelled by one or more electric motors, using electrical energy stored in rechargeable efficient Lithium-ion batteries. The motor gives immediately torque that helps the electric vehicles to create strong and smooth acceleration.
Electric three-wheelers for handicapped
There are many handicapped persons who desire or they have extreme needs to run their families for them these vehicles (smart electric three-wheelers) have been designed. For handicapped people, there is a portable handicap driving tool for only automatic transmission vehicles that helps the person, if he is not able to use their legs for controlling the brake pedal and gas pedal.
Driving tool kit
A portable handicap driving tool kit is equipped which consists of a Spinner knob, Throttle leg assembly, Brake leg assembly, Control handles assembly.
Mechanism of a driving tool
First the brake leg assembly to the brake by tightening the knob and then throttle leg assembly which is a fixed horizontal lever. A strap can also be used for support purposes. The assemblies can be controlled by a lever. There are three positions right end, left end and normal position. If we press the lever to the left side
the brake is applied and if we press the lever right side the gas pedal is pressed and the vehicle moves forward. A spinner knob is attached to the steering wheel so that the driver can easily control the vehicle. Hand Control Modifiers that moves the accelerator and brake pedals to intuitive hand control. Pull for gas and push to brake.
The handlebar is replaced by a steering wheel in three-wheelers for the comfort of the drivers. It will also reduce muscular stress.
In order to have safe driving, there is also a special alcohol detector, sensors that detect the breath of the consumer and then analyze the amount of alcohol that presents in that. If the alcohol level is more than the permissible level and if he cannot continue the driving safely then the sensors send the warning signal to the main system and if the driver still continues to drive then it activates the automatic braking system and locks the wheels which help to avoid any accidents.
The alcoholic detector and the automatic braking system that locks the wheels when the driver is drunk and it should be mandatory to equip all the vehicle segments not only in electric three-wheelers. This is something that should be taken care of to have safe driving and save millions of lives.
