Low Carbon Footprint Electric Lawn Mower

Welcome to the Low Carbon Footprint Electric Lawn Mower Senior Project.  As the name says, this is a project with a goal of creating an electric lawn mower that has a very small carbon footprint.  We plan to accomplish this goal by replacing the gas engine on a lawn mower with a battery-powered electric motor.  In addition to this, we plan to use solar energy to recharge the battery.

Our team is comprised of three senior electrical engineering students at Bradley University in Peoria, IL.

This site is our online journal of the design and implementation of the lawn mower.  We will update it as progress is made, so check back often.
