Elisava students create the first 100% electric off-road sports rescue motorcycle

Date:


Students from the 4th year of the Degree in Industrial Design Engineering and Degree in Design have designed and manufactured Dayna, the first off-road and 100% electric motorcycle designed to offer a rescue and assistance service in sport events.

The two-wheeled vehicle provides more agile access for rescue and medical teams to the area where the injured person is located in order to be able to treat him/her initially and decide quickly if it is necessary to evacuate him/her using other medical transports. Dayna is medicalized and incorporates the necessary equipment and materials to carry out basic treatment and stabilization of the injured.

Dayna is based on a new smart system with yacht connection, blind spot and proximity sensors, Bluetooth and GPS that would allow to reduce the time of action during the rescue services. If commercially produced, the motorcycle would be able to integrate information from GPS tracking devices and combine it with data from runners' applications to analyze their movement. Dayna would thus be able to deal with accidents or situations in which the rider may need assistance before he even requests it, for example detecting a potentially injured rider stopping too long, among others.

Connectivity between different driving parameters

Dayna connects through the mobile device to increase communication capabilities, with built-in GPS and satellite connectivity. In situations of insufficient coverage by phone or radio, the motorcycle could directly activate the satellite communication, enabling fast communication.

The motorcycle also integrates a screen that allows to adjust the driving parameters, choosing between the different modes depending on the terrain and the remaining battery. Through the screen, the special lights for the intervention service can also be activated to alert people who are in the motorcycle's range of action. Dayna has two removable and interchangeable batteries, emergency lights and a trunk with space to carry the necessary items for rescue.


Dayna's design and manufacturing process

The Elisava Racing Team is formed by 11 students of the School and since October 2019 it has worked on the integral design of the motorcycle. The team, that all work in the middle of the pandemic has developed the whole project, has made a field work with the Medical Emergency Service (SEM), the Rescue and Special Actions Group (GRAE), engineers of Self Protection Plans and world wide known riders.

The students have designed and manufactured the motorcycle from scratch according to several studies developed by the team, focusing on ergonomics, mechanics, electronics and interaction with the environment. Elisava Racing has bet for the innovation with the implementation of leading technologies in the industry as the additive manufacturing to design and manufacture all those non-standard components of the vehicle or the adaptation and optimization of a production chassis of a Gas-Gas enduro motorcycle to an electric power train. The students have used leading digital tools such as analysis, simulation and optimization software to follow a development process very close to that used by the motorcycle industry.

Dayna is the second electric motorcycle developed by Elisava students, and it has been created in the framework of the participation of the Elisava Racing Team in the Barcelona Smart Moto Challenge. This international competition has been postponed due to the pandemic and is expected to be held in the summer of 2021 and challenges universities around the world to manufacture a 100% electric competition motorcycle.

Crowdfunding campaign

The Elisava Racing Team raised 3,600 Euros through a crowdfunding campaign on the Verkami platform to cover the costs of manufacturing the motorcycle. The results of this campaign show the interest that the project generates for its innovation.
