Hero ION Hydrogen Fuel Cell Concept Bike

Hero MotoCorp could fly somewhat beneath the radar of the majority of American bike enthusiasts, however, the Indian maker has emerged as a pioneer in alternative fuel technology for off-road car or truck. First came the Hero Leap hybrid (that’s now prepared to enter serial production), then came the RNT 150 diesel hybrid theory shown last week.

Now, Hero showed another new idea this one an electrical bike using a hydrogen fuel cell extender in the 2014 India Auto Expo. Dubbed the Hero iON (strangely announced”ee-on” rather than”eye-on” as you would expect), the futuristic-looking theory employs a lithium-air battery together with a hydrogen fuel cell.

An energy density is offered by the lithium-air a tech times greater than that of traditional batteries. The battery that is Li-air utilizes oxygen in the environment rather than having an oxidizer, as the cathode oxidant. The energy believed to be equal to that of gas, although the technology is still growing. The doctrine is highlighted by the design of the Ion together with the pit between the framework and the gas cell in addition to the wheels.

The wheels are mounted using electrical motors with zero-friction magnetic levitation (believe high-speed monorails) to drive the bike and act as a brake. On the grips, activates control the controller Rather than a twist controller.

Another invention is Hero’s M-link suspension that utilizes magnetorheological damping to suit different riding conditions. Rather than springs, the dampers are full of a fluid that affects its viscosity dependent on a magnetic field’s strength. Detectors change the strength of the electrical field of this M-link .

While gyroscopes and accelerometers preserve equilibrium the rear and front wheel pivot to steer the bike.

Other characteristics include an automobile situational awareness method to track surrounding visitors, and heads-up that are in-helmet exhibit.

Hero revealed that simplicity was known as by a lightweight lithium-ion bicycle concept, but in contrast to the other jobs, it seems mundane.
