OxDrive joint venture unveils self-contained e-hub for farm vehicles
OEMs developing small EVs for agricultural applications, including those intended to have autonomous capabilities, want to focus their efforts on the core agricultural functions and the autonomy (writes Peter Donaldson). Typically, however, they are faced with specifying the driveline, sourcing components and integrating them, says Chris Horton of OxDrive, a joint venture between Performance Projects […]
Performance Projects / Dynium electric tractor
Peter Donaldson relates the development of this tractor’s powertrain, which is designed to operate in confined spaces. When Dynium Robot decided to rethink the tractor to work in the confined spaces of orchards and polytunnels, the off-road robotics specialist turned to racecar engineering company Performance Projects to design the vehicle from...
Phi-Power PHI301 axial flux motor
Lawrence Butcher investigates the technology and engineering behind this compact but powerful motor design. Something of the new kid on the block in the world of electric machines is the axial flux motor. It is a topology which in recent years has seen increased adoption in many e-mobility applications, with the arrival of..
