We are developing a single person operated small fuel cell vehicle with a 1kW fuel cell, which we named the micro FCV. A dual drive train system using a small motor and a reduction system has also been designed for the micro FCV. The dual drive train is installed on the left and right sides of the vehicle. By replacing the differential gear, we intend to reduce the overall cost of the mechanism by using a smaller motor. Running experimental results revealed that the micro FCV performed as desired using the dual drive train system. This paper will present the designs of the micro FCV, the motor, the reduction system, the rear drive system, the vehicle state monitoring system, and the experimental results.
