Abstract

This paper focus on designing of Electric Tonga gives emphasis on two domains namely electrical and mechanical. It scrutinizes all available technologies to find solutions to all issues to above mentioned domains. The major focus was to recreate the conventional Tonga by replacing the animal mode of transportation to electro-mechanical mode of transportation which can be run using Renewable energy. This recreated Tonga is eco-friendly, less cost, and creates less pollution. The three major components are a rechargeable battery, motor and wheels. Battery supplies electrical power to the motors which converts this electrical power into mechanical power and gives them to the wheels via a shaft. The Tonga could carry two to three passengers at a time from one point to the other. It is possible to incorporate a solar panel which can provide a secondary source of energy input other than battery, as well as an Arduino with line follower to control the Tonga. The paper aims to promote tourism and to use Tonga available without torturing animals.
