HIT’s research equipment also includes a fleet of Clean Vehicles that are used to research the impacts from the introduction of Clean Vehicles in urban traffic. These vehicles include:
- 2 Electrical Assisted Bicycles that are used to assist the rider in propulsion. Each bicycle weights approximately 38 kg and can carry double its weight, up to 80 kg. The maximum speed for these bicycles is 20 km/h and the maximum electrically driven range is 35-50 km.
- Hybrid Vehicle Toyota Prius that is being used in research projects, surveying the technologies of clean vehicles. A special recording device has been installed on the vehicle, which stores data regarding fuel consumption and driving behavior. This data can be sent via GPS to a data center for monitoring and consulting purposes.
- Electrical Moped (EVT 4000), which is a test vehicle with low noise level and no emissions. It is easy to use and has two different modes of operation (economy and power). It can be easily charged with a portable charger.
- Piaggio MP3 Hybrid, that is the first hybrid scooter ever produced. This vehicle is used in the development of new ARAS and OBIS systems and in naturalistic studies that investigate rider's behavior. The scooter is a three wheel vehicle with improved traction thanks to the two front wheels.
