Electric Car Concept

Project Lead & Design Engineer

The Deltafish is an experimental prototype electric vehicle I helped designed and built as a senior project to investigate the feasibility of wheel hub motors driven by independent controllers. ​​​​​​​At Deltafish’s inception, no manufacturers had demonstrated wheel hub motors in a four wheel vehicle. Over the course of a year, I designed and tested the chassis and drive system, while leading a team of machinists that helped build it. The system achieved over 2g's of acceleration on its way to a top speed of 35mph.
