Team Dhanush of MNIT Jaipur in SAE Efficycle-2014 09/10/2014 To 12/10/2014

Objective of SAE Efficycle event was designing and fabrication of a hybrid (human + electric) tadpole trike for achieving optimum performance in terms of eco friendliness, safety, stability, durability, maneuverability, ergonomics and aesthetics as per the design brief of the competition. A variety of topologies and seating positions were studied and analyzed and based on various factors such as configuration with under-seat steering abiding Ackermann criterion and double wishbone front suspensions had been adopted with ample importance to safety, ergonomics, aesthetics and eco-friendliness and due considerations of the vehicle constraints as per rules of the competition. A thorough market analysis was done to make sure; we get all the components with ease during vehicle fabrication.
Having decided the vehicle configuration and the projected technical specifications, a compact, light-weight and robust design was made and presented in the virtual round of the event. Upon acceptance of design, the next daunting task was to put all our manufacturing skills together and come up with a vehicle that is close to the proposed design in terms of performance and durability. The first step towards this second phase was to procure all the basic components and material for roll-cage and wheel assembly and to alongside start preparation of a budget to get the project funded by the Institute. The team was financially supported from TEQIP Phase-II project. With the able guidance of Dr. Harlal Singh Mali (Faculty Coordinator) and our seniors, this step could be completed with ease. Team Dhanush of B Tech (Mechanical Engineering) 2nd Year students acknowledges the help and support provided by one and all from the Institute and over and above the inspiration of Director Prof. IK Bhat.
