Eray is an offload electric motorcycle created from scratch by 12 Industrial Engineering and Design students from Elisava University, with the aim of racing in the Barcelona Smart Moto Challenge 2019.
The project will consist of developing the technical and functional design of a completely new electric motorcycle, fulfilling the requirements defined by the Barcelona Smart Moto Challenge, with the mission of creating a motorcycle suitable for commercialization.
ERT TEAM: “This motorcycle has been designed to take the concept of customization to the limit, using 3D printing. An example of this can be the covers and the seat. An extensive study dedicated to ergonomics has been carried out in order to achieve a 100% competitive motorcycle. And also, we would like to highlight the SMART section of the motorcycle, which can be turned on by an app, send messages from your Smartphone to Eray’s 7″ screen, among others…”
For the development of this project, we will follow the design and engineering process described by Elisava, which consists of dividing the process into four fundamental parts: inspiration, ideation, implementation and communication.
Each of them fulfills the essential function of turning ideas into functional solutions. This project will focus on the first two phases of the design process defined by Elisava, and then, for the first time in our studies career, we will enter the implementation phase to physically compete in the BSMC career. That means having more technical and professional aspects.
Barcelona Smart Moto Challenge 2019
The BSMC is an international competition that has been held annually in Catalonia since 2013 with the aim of familiarising universities and technical schools with sustainable mobility from the point of view of engineering and design. This year, the objective will be to present an electric motorcycle, off-road, ready to compete.
“We have 4 events that are gathered under the name of South European Young Engineering Days that we hope, given their multidisciplinary nature, also act as promoters of technological careers in young people who must decide their future, which will also be ours,” says Dr. Emilio Hernández, Smart Moto Association Challenge Chairman.
