The motor usually drives up to 120V. We'll be driving it at ~60V because we can. Also, because it takes a lot of battery space (volume) to get that high of a voltage (DC) without a nice, big boost converter. Which we do not have.
As for braking, we have a small friction brake. This is similar to the friction drives. But less able to make the acceleration of the vehicle change.
As for lighting, we will be using EL wire around the frame. Brake lights and a headlight should be installed later on.
