Product Span of BTW Project

The BTW is an invention that has ramifications over a wide range of small, low speed, rough terrain wheeled vehicles. Among other applications, it provides a low cost solution to the “last mile” problem. As well as civilian applications, it has military and planetary exploration application.

All models below are electrically powered. 

Examples of applications where the BTW will improve performance include:-

1 Wheeled - Wheelbarrow

2 Wheeled – Hand Cart, Goods Trolley

3 or 4 Wheeled -

  • Civilian – Rough Terrain Wheelchair, Rough Terrain Remote Controlled or Autonomous Trolley, Autonomous Last Mile Delivery for Post, Parcels, Meals, Shopping etc., Disaster search and recovery.
