There are many types of bicycle in the world such as normal bicycle that people need to paddle for it to move, motorized bicycle that uses fuel as its prime power and electric bicycle that can only be sufficient for an hour. Because of some weaknesses in the existence system, the idea of a solar bicycle came in mind. The idea is to make the bicycle last longer and can be automatically recharge when the bicycle is not in use by the renewable solar energy. The concept of the solar energy is that a high torque motor will be put on the bicycle which will be generated by the solar energy. The solar energy will be absorbed by the portable solar panel to generate the power. The power that had been absorbed by the panel can be used directly by the motor if the power matches the power requirement. If not, the motor will use the power from a battery. The process of planning, designing, and testing a Hybrid Electric Bicycle it provides a lot of detail into the challenges of modifying an existing mechanical system to one that is based on both human propulsion as well as a set of electromechanical interfaces that provide assists. Through designing an electro-mechanical system, with various non-human inputs and feedback channels, a major challenge was centralizing the control of the system. After establishing criteria for speed, control, efficiency, and weight, we began a process of selecting parts and developing models for how the overall system including the rider could be integrated in a way that is both safe, and easy to use. When the bicycle was not in use during the day, the solar panel will charge the battery. The system will make bicycle operate more efficiently.
