Motordisc

A NEW LIFE FOR TRADITIONAL CARS

Motordisc is an R&D&I project of electric hybridization

of vehicles with traditional explosion engine based on “flat” type electric motors placed on the brake calipers that allows (i) the electric traction of the vehicle and (ii) the use of braking for the generation of electricity (due to the utilization of inverter type electric motors).
This system, together with the current charging technologies, will allow traditional internal combustion vehicles to circulate in large cities.

Motordisc is compatible with current electricity generation systems such as plug-in charge, alternator charging system and new technologies such as interchangeable batteries (due to its smaller size) or induction charging.

2 ALTERNATIVES:

ECO Environmental Label. Less complex and affordable system while avoiding large cities access restrictions.

0 Environmental Label. Plug-in Electric Hybrid Vehicle with more than 50 kms autonomy.

Motordisc will allow the RECYCLING of millions of vehicles with traditional explosion engines, avoiding an enormous waste management and offering a new life cycle to these vehicles. In this way, an overproduction of new cars is avoided, with the impact in environmental sustainability parameters such as the emission of CO2.

THE URBAN VEHICLE OF THE FUTURE

A new Car-Sharing concept

  • New concept of car sharing with vehicles of small size and weight, as an alternative to current car sharing and bike sharing companies.
  • Advantages vs car-sharing:
    • Operator: vehicle with lower purchase and maintenance costs (batteries are replaced on site, avoiding the move of vehicles to charging centers).
    • User: greater ease of parking in high density areas (perpendicular parking) and a lower usage cost (thanks to lower acquisition and maintenance costs).
  • Advantages vs moto sharing: Greater passive and low grip conditions safety.

MAIN FEATURES:

KIT MOTORDISC

Clearly innovative component

The electric traction/regenerative braking system provides a clearly innovative component that consists of placing said electric motors in the brake calipers of each wheel.

The system is called Motordisc Electric Transmission and has been granted the Spanish patent ES2597203 and is in the final phase of approval of the patent for Europe, United States and China (international patent reference WO 2017/009512 A1).

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

The main strategy is based on the development of a kit with the following components:

BRAKE DISCS
Standard measurements and anchors, and with a toothed perimeter.

SET OF ELECTRIC MOTORS
Integrated in the brake calipers, which act directly on the disc or on an intermediate gear, coexisting with the hydraulic braking system.

GEAR OR INTERMEDIATE GEARS
Integrated in the brake calipers, which transmit the movement of the electric motors to the disc if required.

BATTERY
Supplies the necessary energy to the electric motors, and also accumulates the generated electricity.

ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNIT
Acts on acceleration and deceleration.
