Project Description

Due to rising concerns of the air quality, this project was done to demonstrate that carbon dioxide emissions can be eliminated from 4-wheelers by replacing the combustion motor with an electric motor. The conversion was done using a brushless-DC motor, motor controller, lithium batteries, and an Arduino Mega for instrument control.
