Page 3 AME409 Y. Jin Develop a preliminary design for a vehicle suitable for Los Angeles commuters that meets the following specifications: – Maximum speed – 100 mph, – Acceleration – 0-60 mph in 8 seconds – Freeway cruise speed – 60mph – Zero emission range – 60 miles at 60 mph – Total range – 400 miles at 60 mph – Minimum smog emissions – Minimum energy consumption – Utilizes currently available technology – Attractive and marketable compared with current vehicles A transportation study (2000) for the Los Angeles basin gives the following commuter profile: – 70% single occupant, 15% car pooled, 6.6% public transportation – 35% less than 20 miles round trip commute – 35% less than 40 miles round trip commute – 30% more than 40 miles round trip commute Page 4 AME409 Y. Jin • As individual – 3-view drawing of your car – Energy system functional structure – Power required curve – Power available curve – Energy schematic – Performance & Energy Study Report • As a team – Project plan – Suspension schematic – Steering schematic – Ergonomics schematic – Final Preliminary Design Report
