From 19 to 22 November, an event called ‘Make the Future Live India’ will be organized at STCB. Students from two Delhi colleges will be taking part in the event in an attempt to design less polluting, energy-efficient, and futuristic vehicles.
The Delhi Technical University is sending a team called DTU E-Supermileage with 10 members to this event. This team has invented a special electric vehicle prototype powered by a hub motor with a carbon fiber monocoque design. The design allows the vehicle to have better safety as well as a better physique. 200Km/kWh is the expected mileage of this vehicle.
One more engineering team is also joining ‘Make Future Live India’ is Aethon. From the Indira Gandhi-Delhi Technical University for Women, the all-women student team will bring a low-carbon, energy-efficient electric prototype car. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, it has detachable steering as well as the best aerodynamic shape, which helps to limit air resistance, resulting in better mileage.
The prototype car of Aethon will be represented in the event’s marathon part named Shell Eco.
According to the Team Manager of the all-women engineering team called Jhanvi Puri, as climate change is getting more and more complicated, we should all be concerned about it, from nations, governments to corporates, activists, and citizens. People are putting effort into dealing with global issues related to climate change. The team is showing its efforts by developing mobility solutions in order to cut down carbon emission as well as helping to tackle climate change.
39 teams in India are ready to compete with their self-designed vehicles in the first phase of this engineering event. The host of this event will be Shell India. The event is where students, academics, businesses, and governments discover and acknowledge the future of mobility and energy. After 30 years, MTFL has attracted several students from universities and high schools globally to demonstrate their creativity in designing futuristic energy-efficient vehicles.
