[Video] All About Motors: The Power & Motion Delivery System for Automotive Applications
In this video blog series on Electric Motors, we kick-start the journey with introduction of the different kinds of Electric Motors.
This video, as the name suggests, is all about Motors deployed in automobiles. We have also traced the evolution of Electric Motor, since their inception in the Automotive Industry.
Ever since, the first electric motor was invented by Michael Faraday in 1821, it has found several applications in various Industries.
Electric Motors also have been an integral part of Automobiles. It may be surprising for many, but the fact is that in 1832, the world has witnessed its first electric car on the road. It also marks the first use of electric motor in automobiles.
Over the period of more than 150 years, motors have evolved to be more robust, smarter and efficient. Their deployment in automobiles has also transcended from simple windshield wipers to more complex systems like ABS and Power Steering.
Key Learning from the video:
- What is an Electric Motor?
- Different types of Electric Motors used in automotive industry?
- Evolution of Electric Motors in automotive industry
- Automotive Use Cases of Electric Motors
Which Target Audience Does this Video Cater to?
The video explains the fundamentals of Electric Motors and is also a prelude to our next video that talks about Motor Control Systems. In that regard, it caters to multiple audiences.
Let’s have a look at the few audience group the video can be a great value-add.
