Connectivity is everything

Networking that is advancing at breathtaking speed is revolutionising all areas of our lives. This is especially the case for transport. Experts expect that even in the near future 80% fewer cars will be congesting the roads in our towns because more and more people are switching from their own vehicles to sharing models. And these are based on intelligent connectivity solutions.

Keep rolling, rolling, rolling

Success is only achieved nowadays, if maximum performance is achieved, in fact nonstop. This is particularly true in the world of sharing providers and delivery services. If the pizza gets to its destination faster due to better performance, everyone is happy: the customer as well as the restaurateur.

COOLTRA EXCITED SPAIN

Bright sunshine, white sandy beaches and palm-edged serpentines really make a wonderful scenery. But rattling engines and ill-smelling exhaust fumes do not fit into this idyll – and are even strictly forbidden in some places.   This is what Timo Bütefisch thought. The founder and CEO of Cooltra, Spain’s largest scooter renting agency, decided to integrate electric scooters in his vehicle fleet in 2012. The vehicles of most various manufacturers were tested, but GOVECS made it. 500 of the 3,000 scooters provided by Cooltra originate from GOVECS – with upward tendency. The reliability and sophisticated technology are still convincing to Bütefisch – and are inspiring for his customers.

Drivetrain – the technology Story

The characteristic centrepiece of a GOVECS scooter is the belt drive. We have based the entire drive system on it from the very beginning and spent tremendous amounts of time and testing for it. Now that we drove more than a million of test kilometres we are proud of this all-encompassing drive system, which makes a highly efficient energy utilization and an optimal interaction of the components possible and at the same time ensures unique driving experience. One of the crucial characteristics for accuracy, efficiency and time control of the drivetrain is the special angle of the magnetic Encoder-IC and a switch that is directly integrated in the die-cast motor housing. With that the torque is improved and the measurements can be carried out with a relative accuracy of +/- 1 LSB. This ensures a smooth control of the drive system during acceleration. When the driver actuates the throttle, this produces a flat power curve that is much more comfortable than the binary jerky movement of our competitors.
