Some impacts due to climate change such as greenhouse effect which is as a result of large amount of carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere and the destruction of the Ozone layer are deemed very detrimental to the survival of the human kind in the near future.Bachelet, Neilson, Lenihan & Drapek (2001).
This drastic issue of climate change among other factors has led to endeavors by various authorities to promote or fund development of machines in all aspects of energy consumption that are environmental friendly. These authorities like governments or large organizations have developed a keen interest to promote these developments. These are for example the development of Sinclair C5 by Sir Clive Sinclair in the United Kingdom on January 10th 1985. The design was ideal for its intended purpose but the product development of this design did not last for long, Dale & Rodney (1985).
This study seeks to evaluate the development of Sinclair C5 wheel powered scooter, analyse the challenges that it faced hence try to come up with model that is more efficient so as to last in production stage of its development and outline the design preferred.
The invention of Sinclair C5 was done by Sir Clive Sinclair o ...Show more
