Transmission technology has a long history, dating back to the early 1900s, yet no major innovations have happened in the last 30 years, whether in the automotive, bicycle, industrial, or recreational market segments.
But this is about to change. As the transportation industry continues its migration towards electrification, vendors are increasingly looking at transmissions to balance torque and speed to achieve the best range and battery efficiency. In addition, the more demanding duty cycles of commercial EVs like delivery vans, buses, and trucks, as well as off-road equipment and high-performance passenger EVs are forcing car manufactures to consider development of multi-speed solutions.
MyBike created a robotic gear that is the foundation of InfiniGear™, a universally applicable transmission that can propel EVs, e-bikes, trucks, and buses with smooth, infinite, and immediate shifting. Packaged in a small, light design, this innovative software-defined linear automatic transmission will transform the EV transportation industry as it increases range and saves battery power.
