Motordisc is a twofold Project:

1.A project of electric hybridization of vehicles with traditional explosion engine based on a KIT that includes "flat" type electric motors placed on the brake calipers that allows (i) the electric traction of the vehicle and (ii) the use of braking for the generation of electricity (due to the utilization of inverter type electric motors).

2.A new urban car-sharing concept with vehicles of small size and weight, as an alternative to current car sharing and moto sharing companies.

The electric traction/regenerative braking system provides a clearly innovative component that consists of placing said electric motors in the brake calipers of each wheel. Thanks to this innovation, this system is much less complex from the technical and installation point of view, than other similar projects that are being carried out.

It has been granted the Spanish patent ES2597203; it is also in an advanced phase of approval for the Europe, United States and China patents (reference international patent WO 2017/009512 A1).

JUSTO DE RUFINO Thank you for sharing this concept! I am a Michigan Central Station Challenge facilitator. Can you tell me a little bit more about what you plan to do in the pilot phase of the project (starting in January 2020)? Would you be focusing on developing the technology? Would you also be focusing on the car-sharing service during this time? Thank you!
