Planning & Execution

Project SummaryThe goal of this project will be to design a powertrain for the RIT Electric Vehicle Team's motorcycle to compete in the TTXGP. This powertrain will consist of the motor, controller, and transmission. The traction control system will ensure that the power is effectively transferred to the track. This is accomplished through the control of power to keep the front wheel on the ground and the rear wheel from spinning. The transmission will keep the motor in the appropriate range for maximum power and efficiency. This will reduce the power requirements and thus the weight of the battery pack.
The primary purpose of this senior design project is to increase the performance of the Electric Vehicle Team's motorcycle.

Team Norms & ValuesThe following are the expected Norms for the EV Powertrain Team:
1.) Attendance to all team meetings, though encouraged,
is not necessary as long as assigned work is
- A team member should be notified if you plan on missing a meeting.
2.) The team will meet at least once a week to discuss status as well as define new objectives.
3.) Communication is VERY important!
- Problems from an EE standpoint effect ME design and vice versa. Ideas need to constantly be shared.
4.) When making team decision, the ideas should be discussed by the team, and a 4/5 agreement ratio should be achieved before the idea is accepted.
The following are the Values of the EV Powertrain Team:
1.) The EV Powertrain team performs at a high level and expects quality work.
2.) Commitment to the team and the project.
- We will see this project through to the end.
3.) New ideas/opinions are always welcome and should be encouraged and discussed.
