Project Summary:

Because of the large demand of improved fuel economy in all vehicles on the road and better emissions standard, there has been an increased interest in hybrid vehicle research. One of the options for hybrid vehicles is using hydraulic assist systems. The main goal for this project is to create a hydraulic launch assist system to place onto large refuse vehicles that both improves their fuel economy while being a feasible and affordable design.

This website provides documentation and pictures of the engineering process that our team took as we went from learning about Hydraulics to testing a designed and functional hydraulic vehicle.

At the completion of this project, we have included a page to reflect on what we have learned in this process.
