Abstract

The Waseda Advanced Electric Micro Bus (WEB) has been developed and tested for convenient regional public transportation as a part of the "Advanced Electric Micro Bus Transportation System Project" supported by NEDO. The bus system is characterized by the significantly reduced amount of batteries for lightweight. The batteries are occasionally recharged by a non-contact inductive rapidcharging system (Inductive Power Supply System: IPS System) at the terminal station. By adopting an advanced hybrid electric power supply system (ZEBRA battery/ Super capacitor) and related key components, significant improvements in energy consumption and CO2 emission have been achieved, compared to an equivalent diesel micro bus.
