My name is Sri Harsha. I am in Silicon Valley but I am originally from Hyderbad. I recently came across one of my friends Idea of Electric Vehicles. He already manages a company in India. We are trying to launch an Electric Bike which is not only just electric but also an Electric Generator.
This is a hybrid bike which means it will generate electricity to charge a battery and there by charging any of your equipment like a laptop, mobile phone or a small device. In a country like India we use our motorcycles for most of the commute. Imagine if we can introduce a vehicle which is lighter, half as costly as a motor cycle and also costs less to charge the battery (as it already have a generator) and also can be used as an exercise machine when not using. This is the idea. Now myself, I am giving him the support as a Research Engineer to do the simulations, experimental work related to the motors and controllers part. He is in-charge of the manufacturing. We already started the design work few days ago. Officially we do not have any design or presentation yet on the paper and it might take another couple of weeks from now. I am wondering if anyone are interested in Clean Energy Transportation Ideas or any of the E-mobility opportunities. I do have few contacts here in the valley and in India who can form a really good team as part of India and USA venture.
If anyone are interested in the idea or have any questions feel free to reach me here.
