An incredible limitless professional knowledge – developed within years of planning, research, commitment and boldness – that IK4-TEKNIKER’s experts brought with them since when they first approached the WEEVIL Project, together with their ability of dealing with multi-discipline projects, integral solutions to specific problems developing new components optimizing performances, reducing operations and maintaining costs.
This innovative company gives its unique contribution to the creation of this new generation of electric vehicles by conceiving and designing not only the electronic actuators – that are literally the engine of the project –but also through a synergistic interaction among various engineering disciplines ( from mechanics, up to control, micro-electronics, computing e much more…) that can be summed up with one little word: mechatronics.
Last but not least, the IK4-TEKNIKER’s approach to regulation and control of systems is a fundamental element capable to give WEEVIL its extraordinary car-like driving feeling controlling and reducing at the same time noise and vibration so that the driver can fully enjoy this new, sustainable way of travelling.
