Hybrid Electric Vehicle Training at Northwestern Michigan College
Thursday, January 12, 2012
We are in the process of installing all of the bits and pieces needed to make the Hybrid Trainer Vehicle legal for use on the street. After studying the Michigan Vehicle Code, I found that we would need mirrors, lights, a windshield and a few other items to make it come together. The mirrors are installed, as are the headlights, taillights, brake lights and turn signals. The taillights, brake lights and turn signals are high efficiency LED units. The cool thing about that is they appear to be clear, but light up red or amber when energized. Actually, the lights are merely mounted. Our next class starts next week, and they will design and implement the lighting controls and wiring to get everything on line and working. I can't wait to get them started!
The turn signals are below the headlights, to the outside.
