Battery-Electric Route Bus: A Platform for Vehicle Design
This research developed a platform for designing battery-electric vehicle (BEV) route buses within an Australian context. Design-led experiments produced three contributions to BEV route bus knowledge concluding that: Purpose-designed BEV route buses may achieve enhancements in passenger accommodation, vehicle design and operation; Large on-board battery packs significantly influence vehicle design and must be integrated with consideration for passenger accommodation and mass distribution; Operational strategies may mitigate energy storage effects to achieve enhancements in vehicle design and passenger accommodation.
This exhibition comprises the practical component of Ilya Fridman’s PhD research.
Congratulations to PhD Candidate Ilya Fridman on the success of his exhibition Battery-Electric Route Bus: A Platform for Vehicle Design at MADA Gallery.
