Build your own KURT e-vehicle

The City-KURT e-vehicle is based on a lightweight modular and scalable platform. Kickstart your own vehicle by just buying an easy to assemble propulsion platform and design your own “superstructure”. A minimal platform will have 1 main box and 2 suspension boxes with wheels, a larger platform can have up to 16 main boxes. Each main box measures W 200 x L 600 mm. Additional adapter boxes allow to tune the length in units of 100 mm. As the vehicle is controlled by software, many steering options are possible (front or rear-wheels only, skid steering as well as crab-steering). Each pair of wheel is typically coupled in an Ackerman configuration while a torsion bar is used to improve the passive safety.
As each wheel has its own motor, the performance can be tuned by selecting different wheels, motors and batteries. The vehicle controllers can be redundant and using the platform sensors provide for a safe and flexible control. Remote monitoring and control over a smartphone is an option.
Contact us for a suitable configuration that meest your needs. Volume discounts avalaible as well as licensing and franchising options. Become a partner of the KURT family!

KURT brengt elektromobiliteit dichterbij

Een artikel over het KURT concept werd opgenomen in Bits&Chips, nadien overgenomen door Mechatronica&Machinebouw. Voor de Nederlandstalige lezer biedt het een beknopt overzicht van de ontstaansgeschiedenis en het onderliggende modulaire en schaalbare platform. Ondertussen werd dit al uitgewerkt in meerdere versies gaande van een specifiek platform voor gebruik in ziekenhuizen, transport en mobiliteit in de binnenstad en zwaar logistiek transport op luchthavens.

Altreonic’s City-KURT teaming up for “Witte Stad”

Altreonic and the pioneering Luud Schimmelpennink are bridging the gap between the 1970’s when the first shared e-vehicles were introduced in Amsterdam and today when the concept and need is more then ever present allowing sustainable mobility and transport in city centres. The result is a new form of individualised public transport, a hybrid between a vehicle sharing scheme and a public transport system (e.g. like the metro or bus).
