Design of Cluster Bike - A 5 Person Peddling Social Bike
Keywords:Cluster bike, Power transmission
Consumption of energy and resource conservation are the major concerns in today’s world. There is also a greater emphasize for the usage of renewable energy sources. In this context, this work provides a way of a travelling group of people in a single-vehicle which is a peddle operated. In a Cluster Bike, 5 persons will be seated in a circular manner and all will simultaneously pedal to propel the bike forward. Steering is provided to one person who is in-facing with the vehicle movement direction. The braking control will be given to the same person who will be steering the bike. The mechanism for power transmission is a bevel gear system. A flexible drive system is included in the transmission to transfer power from five different shafts to a single shaft which is in turn linked to the rear wheels. The main intention of this project is to bring in people to interact with others while traveling. A cluster bike will be a good alternative for people who travel in groups and they just do not have use any other source of energy to do so. Thus this bike can be the best choice in an in-campus traveling where students in the universities or employees in the company can move around the campus in groups. A ride in a cluster bike is not only joyful but it is also a test of coordination between the riders. The vehicle is designed to provide an environmentally friendly bike and to make people associate with others in a free while even in a busy routine.
