Hi Core77 Community,
My name is Phuoc Nguyen. I am a Mechanical Design Engineering student at Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Vietnam.
I have my first pedal electric cycle (pedelec) concept for over a year and a half, it is called E-Wheel (abbreviation of Integrated Electric Wheel).
Please refer my project portfolio for more information: Free CAD Designs, Files & 3D Models | The GrabCAD Community Library
Come with the new cutting edge of design pedal electric cycle (pedelec) - E-Wheel will give the rider new experiments when they pedal. You can integrate E-Wheel into conventional or folding bicycle; it also has the wireless technology for remote control and battery charge.
E-Wheel are suited for a wide variety of people who are not able or not willing to ride a conventional bicycle or who simply need faster transportation and most efficient means of transport in town.
E-Wheel has won two precious prizes like Autodesk Design Challenge (http://aseanpreneurs.org/autodesk_ap_design/) and international Lexus Design Award 2014 (Lexus / Discover the Global World of Lexus) with the panel display in Milan Design Week 2014. And the E-Wheel received so many praises from all over the world.
I think my design is unique and has lot of outstanding features so I really want to make this prototype and appear in real life. Furthermore, I am also looking for any company to make the commercial of the E-Wheel. But I only have approximate $USD1000 from my saving money and my parents. It is almost impossible to find any sponsors for my project in Vietnam. May be the project must be cancelled.
There will be my special honor if Core77 Community can give me the best ADVICE for my issues.
Thank you so much!
