Performance Evaluation of Leaning Reverse Trike




Three Wheeled vehicle, Leaning Reverse Trike, Tadpole Design, Delta Design


This paper presents a unique experiment based on a very small and emerging sector of automotive industry, i.e. reverse Trikes or three wheeled vehicles. A REVERSE TRIKE is a vehicle which has two wheels up front and one in the back. A reverse trike is basically a vehicle having two wheels in the front and one on rear side. Most cars have the engine driving the rear wheel and leave steering to the front ones. Some are eco-friendly human powered vehicle with a compounded electric drive system and some are powered by I.C. Engines. The incidence of accidental deaths has shown an increasing trend during the period 2003-2012 with an increase of 51.8% in the year 2012 as compared to 2002; Because of the fact that that these vehicles are very safe to drive and will be very less to become accident prone these three wheelers could be the future of the automotive sector, In the early 20th century three-wheelers gained in popularity as low-cost, lightweight vehicle that is, until about the late 1920s, when cars generally started going more along the four-wheel track. The main aim of this research paper is to evaluate the performance of a three wheeled vehicle based on leaning mechanism and to develop a transition mechanism namely tilt lock system which can transform the leaning vehicle into non- leaning and vice versa according to the requirement. The conceptual design of the project model is based on the study of several literatures related to reverse trike. The mechanisms used for available reverse trikes are very costly and electronics based. So we want to design the mechanism which can overcome the drawbacks of the existing design of a conventional vehicle and also it should take benefit of the three-wheeled transportation and it should also contain the features of an electric vehicle because it is environment friendly. Now for making the system cost effective we have incorporated mechanical leaning system in our design so as eliminate the costly electronic components. The main advantage of this mechanism is that it makes the vehicle more stable during high speed turns so that even a reverse trike can take a turn like a sports bike by leaning to its side. The results of experimental testing are presented to illustrate the real balancing performance of the combined steering and tilting approach used for the Leaning reverse trike that is very economical and fairly simple to drive. In this research it is found that the performance, handling and safety of the Leaning Reverse Trike are much better than any other commercially available three wheelers. The actual fabricated prototype is named as “KLISI”
