Abstract

This paper presents an activity concerning a theoretical/experimental analysis of a new measurement system of the chain strength functional for the control of the electrically assisted bicycles. Such systems are characterized by a driving torque due to the contribution of an electric motor and of the rider. The electrical assistance is commonly regulated taking into account informations such as chain ring rotation, bicycle speed and/or the torque given by the rider. As a consequence, suitable measurements have to be made on board in order to handle the assistance performances and to improve drivability.
