The Green Vehicles Developed by Student of School of Engineering Tel-U
BANDUNG, TEL-U – Environmental problems resulting technology has become world’s discourse. The world population has begun to experience a variety of environmental problems. The longer the condition even worse. Thus, the world needs alternative solutions to reduce the negative impact of the use of technology on the environment.
Green Technology is a vehicle-based Wireless and microcontroller. The vehicle that was made by students of D3 Telecommunication Engineering University Telkom, Lilis Setiono was a wireless-based environmentally friendly vehicles.
“I am making this car as the final project. The manufacturing process takes as long as five months, from January to May, “said Tio, greeting familiar Lilian Setiyono.
This car uses battery power which is controlled by a remote. This vehicles using battery power so it can be easily controlled using the remote control. The system utilizes the engine as a tool motion. As for the transmission system using a remote control with a distance of 1 kilometer achieve wireless control. Vehicles equipped with some supporting components such as solar cell, infra red car rearview camera and TV.
This environment-friendly vehicles has a specification maximum speed of 20 kilometers per hour. 4,5-6V receiver with power supply (LM 7805), the power supply relay 7V-9V (LM 7808), and the power supply of 20V-22V DC motor (Accumulator). Vehicle that weighs 100 kilograms also has a frequency of 2.4 GHz (Turnigy 9x). The car is equipped with solar power as a backup energy. This mini car somewhat unique. With a size of 120 cm wide, 170 cm long and 140 cm high.
“The shape of casing and the interior of my car is designed by me. I made the casing from fiber,” said Tio.
During the manufacturing process the mini car is not always smooth. Tio should fail and unyielding to fix it repeatedly. He was willing to drain pockets of up to 15 million rupiah to make this car.
“The figure includes charges for the unsuccessful test. As for the cost of production of mini cars themselves may be below 15 million, “said Tio. However, Tio aspire that his car can be mass produced as a friendly vehicle solutions. (purel/risca)
