Hybrid2 Bikes to Power City Buses

hybrid2-bikeThe Hybrid2 bike’s aim is to store electricity that can be put back into the grid to power electric powered buses.

Electricity is generated each time the bike brakes through a regenerative braking system. Unlike other hybrid concept that then use this generated electricity to give themselves a boost, the Hybrid2 stores the generated power in an ultracapacitor.

When the bike is then taken back to the stand the ultracapacitor feeds the energy back into the grid which is then used to charge electric powered buses. An RFID card is also used that allows the rider to unlock the bike, and also it stores information giving the rider free time on the bus in thanks for helping them out.
