In the summer of 2015, the Power Electronics Machines and Control Research Group (PEMC) together with the Faculty of Engineering developed an electric superbike from the ground up, including full custom design of frame, electrical system, batteries etc.
The bike saw its first miles at the Isle of Man TT Zero, finishing sixth overall and first for a University, setting a good start for the summer season. With Daley Mathison on board, the team was delighted to achieve pole positions, fastest lap times and, at the end of the summer, they became MotoE Champions 2015! The team’s experience has set new standards for electrical racing machines, and they are already looking forward to the 2016 season.
In this inaugural UoN Technical Seminar, the eBike team will talk about how the bike has developed, its design and details, the successes they’ve had and what they’re looking to do in the future. Find out more about the e-racing team on the PEMC website.
Open to University of Nottingham staff only.
The UoN Technical Focus Group look forward to seeing you there! Future seminars in the Technical Seminar Series will be announced shortly and will take place on a variety of different days and times in order to allow attendance for as many as possible.
