Humans have an innate thirst for adventure and an instinctive desire to expand their knowledge through firsthand experience. By testing the limits of personal strength and endurance, we obtain a better understanding of ourselves. One aspect of adventure is the art of competition. Team AeroVelo, comprised of professionals and engineering students from the University of Toronto, pursue this quest for adventure by joining others in an attempt to set the world human-powered speed record.
Me-Mover, an entrepreneurial company located in Denmark, needed a compact clutch solution for their revolutionary new step-driven transport device. The Me-Mover vehicle provides users with a fun, active and energizing way to get to their destination. Ideal for use in urban settings, the device can be easily folded and brought on a bus, train or car.
A team of engineering students from the University of Offenburg in Germany needed an overrunning clutch solution for use in their diesel-powered, peri-urban vehicle. The team was one of many from around the world competing in the annual Shell Eco-marathon which challenges students to design, build and test ultra energy-efficient vehicles.
