deploys the following 3 key proprietary technologies:
Climate Control Seats (CCS)
The Running Chassis
This consists of a very strong, self supporting, light weight space
frame and includes the motor, integrated power system, drive-train,
steering, suspension, brakes, wheels, tyres and high voltage systems.
ABS body panels are directly attached to the space frame of the
Energy Management System (EMS)
EMS is a a computer based system that optimises charging and energy
output of batteries to maximise
operating range and improve performance. The system also predicts
available range for a given state of battery charge and is a standard
feature on the Reva. The EMS also maintains an electronic log of
the vehicle performance, enables service personnel to run diagnostic
checks on the car to give service information about the car.
The EMS performs
five key functions that collectively improve performance and reduce
(SOC) Estimation, Vehicle
Warranty Verification, Vehicle
Data Acquisition (DAQ).
The EMS also
controls the outputs on the REVA instrument panel, such as the SOC
meter, an efficiency gauge and the diagnostic indicators. The EMS
communicates with a handheld diagnostic unit for data acquisition
and service diagnostics.
Control seats (CCS)
- Coming soon!
Climate controlled seats is another unique system to be introduced
shortly in REVA. The CCS system cools / heats / ventilates
the seat to increase occupant comfort in different weather conditions.
CCS has a solid state heat pump and is extremely efficient;
typically energy consumption is less than 10% of that of conventional
automobile air-conditioners. As a result, driving is more comfortable
and the range is not compromised under very hot or cold conditions.
