Oxis Energy Ltd of Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK has joined forces with Induct of France to spearhead the latest technology in electric vehicles.
Cybergo is a robotic electric vehicle specially designed for transporting people in cities. It can be accessed by a touch of a button on your mobile phone. It is equipped with sensors including laser range finders and cameras. Its reaction time is about 10 times faster than a human being and it uses its lasers to see and anticipate cars, pedestrians or any kind of obstacles that could get in the way. Using the cameras, Cybergo can read the road signs such as stops, lines on the ground, traffic lights, etc.
Its rechargeable Lithium - polymer battery is capable of storing large electrical charge in a cheap and safe way and is one of those significant inventions that will change the environment and the way in which we live.
The real breakthrough with Oxis technology is that its rechargeable batteries can provide the specific energy required to replace the internal combustion engine. By definition, the Company is making a contribution to emerging economies by providing a method to significantly reduce the carbon footprint emitted by motor vehicles.
The vehicle will be used in city centres, hospitals, university campuses and sporting venues but as many shuttles as is necessary can be injected into the traffic flow based on projected demand from statistical analysis and sensors at regular stops.
For more attend Electric Vehicles Land Sea Air USA 2012 ,where uniquely we reflect the new realities that there are now six key enabling technologies and they are competing in all forms of EV, hybrid, pure electric and land, water and airborne, manned and unmanned. Speakers from ten countries detail the situation in their parts of the world including SYNPER 3 from Singapore, first to fly an electric helicopter recently, showing how up to 35% of helicopter crashes could be avoided with hybrid electric technology. Sun Yat-Sen University China and Germany Trade & Invest detail their national situations. Next generation batteries are covered by Robert Bosch (Bosch Group) of Germany, Oxis Energy UK, IBM USA and others. OLEV Technologies will show how to continuously pick up power, Schneider Electric of France how modern charging infrastructure is a system not boxes. There will be two presentations on supercapacitor breakthroughs - here is the future. See the full picture, with best-in-class speakers from across the whole world - Slovenia to Gibraltar, China to Canada, each carefully chosen by IDTechEx because of their leadership. There are two presentations on agricultural EVs and five on electric aircraft including Boeing and Airbus involvement. Other presenters include BMW (cars etc), Mitsubishi Motors (small commercial vehicles and cars), Daimler AG (commercial and military vehicles and cars) and Toyota (leader in electric forklifts, electric cars and buses but also presenting on its fuel cell vehicle program.) Uniquely, a large number of electric vehicle manufacturers not seen in conventional EV events will present including iRobot Corporation Autonomous Underwater Vehicles AUVs (better known for EVs as robot vacuum cleaners). Mission Motors and two others focus on electric motor cycles. Many manufacturers of industrial, commercial, military, cars and other EVs will be there. Come to this event where you avoid the usual speakers with nothing new to say and meet people new and useful to you without doing a lot of travelling to find them. Apply for an award.
