Abstract
This paper provides an in-detail description of the design considerations, static & dynamic analysis and mathematical data involved in the design of an ELECTRIC MOTOR POWERED ALL TERRAIN VEHICLES (ATV). The main objective of this paper is to reduce the weight of the electric powered vehicles and to design a vehicle which works efficiently in the emerging electric vehicle sector. In order to maintain the speed levels of the vehicle, seamless decision were made in motor selection. The main focus had been laid on the simplicity of the design, high performance, easy maintenance and safety at a very affordable price. The design and development comprise of material selection, chassis and frame design, cross section determination, determining strength requirements of roll cage, stress analysis and simulations to test the ATV against failure [1]. During the entire design process, consumer interest through innovative, inexpensive, and effective methods was always the priority. Most of the components have been chosen based on their easy availability and reliability. According to recognition of customer’s need the vehicle is designed to be ergonomic, aerodynamic, highly engineered and easily manufactured. Hence, it makes the vehicle more efficient. This vehicle can navigate through almost all terrains, which ultimately is the main purpose behind the making of any all-terrain vehicle [5]. This report tries to summarize the steps taken in finalizing the design and analysis of the all-terrain vehicle (ATV) in a nutshell.
