About 13 people die every hour due to automobile accidents in India.
About 36% of these accidents are due to negligence in lifting the side stands.
we have developed a mechanical arrangement which will cause the side stand to retrieve automatically as the vehicle starts to move.
ECU (Electronic Control unit)
A small flat rod is attached and pivoted between the gear actuator lever and the side stand of the bike. When the gear is actuated the side stand gets lifted.
Small stepper motor is connected between the side stand and the engine, when the engine is started the stepper motor runs and retrieves the sides stand automatically.
DRAWBACKS OF EXISTING METHODS
ECU methods are not implemented in all two wheelers due to their high cost.
As far as the mechanical projects are considered they suffer from a major drawback that they cannot be implemented in all types of two wheelers.
Sprocket side stand retrieving system retrieves the side stand automatically when the vehicle starts to move.
The components involved are
The working can be explained under two conditions i)Resting and ii)Riding
INCITER AND RETRIEVER ASSEMBLY
Inciter assembly consists of axle, sprocket and lifting lever.
The Sprocket is mounted on the centre of the axle and the lifting lever is welded at the front side of axle
Retriever assembly consists of pushing lever and side stand.
The pushing lever is centrally pivoted to the side stand
When two-wheeler is in resting condition, When rider actuates the side stand of the vehicle to ground.
The pushing lever that is pivoted at the center of the side stand gets engaged with the lifting lever.
During this condition the inciter assembly is at rest.
The side stand retrieval system using a free wheel is an efficient and cost effective method.
This method can be implemented in all kinds of two wheelers irrespective of whether the vehicle is geared or not.
The cost of implementing the automatic side stand retrieval system is very low when compared to other methods available in market.
Thus the project is designed in an efficient and cost effective way and we hope that the side stand retrieval system will be implemented in two wheelers and reduce the accidents caused due to side stands.
