Elisava Racing Team’s ‘Onux’ proposes a battery swapping and self-maintenance system for motosharing
The future of urban mobility is already here. The electrification of vehicles, traffic restrictions, the rise of micro-mobility and shared mobility are responsible for the fact that we currently conceive the way we move in a completely different way.
With 2030 as a time horizon, eight students from the Undergraduate Degree in Industrial Design Engineering have developed Onux, a battery swapping system that promotes the self-maintenance of sharing motorcycles.
Onux is the union between the network of users and the management of battery charging, being these responsible for the movement and recharging of each of the vehicles, thus eliminating the impact of the operators who currently perform this task. To this end, a charging station has been designed that works in parallel with a digital system that manages the user network, the swappers.
The charging station consists of two distinct parts, the charging rack and the universal battery:
Onux is a comprehensive project that encompasses market research, business opportunity discovery and development, and the design and implementation of each of the project’s physical and digital components. Onux is the result of the fourth edition of the Elisava Racing Team, which has also created Elisava’s first innovation laboratory for electric mobility (ERT-LIME).
