Smart bike with ESA technology beats traffic jam
This Dutch B4 e-cruizer electric bike is a stylish and environmental sustainable alternative to a car.
Developed by the ESA Business Incubation Centre-supported start-up company B4-Bikes, the spin-off from an ESA patent on a solar array regulator optimises the use of the 48 volt, 18 amp battery.
The idea behind the e-cruizer has its origin in the daily rush-hour traffic where eight out of ten morning drives to work are short and most with only one person. Using bikes could easily reduce pollution.
