Building Blocks Concepts for Efficient and Safe Multiuse Urban Electrical Vehicles

WIDE-MOB addresses the design and development of EV’s basic building blocks, including:

  • optimised aerodynamic bodies with embedded synthetic micro-jets that radically reduce the drag Lightweight and low cost bodies designed for high safety under both frontal and lateral crash
  • Application of EMC-EMR and low frequency electromagnetic field (EMF) design concepts based on “prudent avoidance practices” for field mitigation on occupants
  • Solar panels distributed on both horizontal and vertical surfaces with adaptive electronic for a higher range of operation and minimal needs of infrastructures.
