'NoVelo' Human Powered Vehicle

NoVelo Human Powered Vehicle

NoVelo Human Powered Vehicle
Gear  |  Design
Tim Turrini-Rochford, a student from the University of South Australia, who has designed a human powered vehicle, called the NoVelo.  It is a hybrid vehicle powered by human movement and electric power. the vehicle is based on the body of a velomobile but features additional electric motors for high speed commutes. The vehicle uses parallelogram linkage that allows it to tilt through corners. The fairing combination of a horizontal and vertical airfoil to better aerodynamics and allow the NoVelo to hit a top speed of 50kph using the built-in 300W hub motor.
"'Novelo' uses a parallelogram linkage that allows the vehicle to tilt through corners. A small movement of the steering handles turns the front wheels that in turn changes the weight distribution and cases the vehicle to tilt. When the steering is centred the vehicle returns upright. This results in Novelo being able to corner faster and with more stability than current velomobiles, as well as having a much smaller turning circle. The tilting mechanism allows the centre of gravity to be higher, resulting in a vehicle which is more visible to other road users and hence safer.
The fairing uses a combination of a horizontal and vertical aerofoil to provide both outstanding aerodynamics and stability in windy conditions. The estimated Cda (measure of aerodynamic performance) would result in a speed of 50 kmph from just 250 watts of power, less than two light bulbs. This energy can easily be provided by the user or through an in built 300-watt hub motor or both.
The fairing is manufactured from a sandwich of Kevlar, flax fibre and foam honeycomb. Kevlar is used for its impact absorbing characteristics and flax as a renewable alternative to carbon fibre. Both materials are easily moulded into complex shapes and allow the internal frame to be moulded into the fairing in a monocoque process removing the need for an internal space frame and reduces manufacturing time and assembly steps.

Silveira Customs comes up with high performance personal watercraft, dubbed the Samba XRS. The body made from the carbon fiber, powered by a four stroke 110hp turbo engine, weighs in 341lbs. Sleek design, they designed to "feel more like an extension of your body", beauty one!
"The ergonomics evolved this way, based on simple physics involved. Physics dictated the advantages of reducing watercraft weight and positioning the handlebars as the center of gravity, so you can exert extreme body English. You can go from big high speed drifts , to cutting very tightly, all with just a small change in attitude of the craft, yet it’s all distinctive."
