Cuddalore student have invented a solar-powered vehicle for physically challenged people

            Five final-year engineering students of Periyar Maniammai University at Thanjavur have invented an eco-challenger (a solar-powered vehicle for physically challenged people), a product development aimed at improving the life of persons with disabilities. The five students - Ramaseshan (team leader from Trichy) R M Hariraam (Coimbatore), D Vasanth (Chennai), M Muthuraman (Cuddalore) and M Vivek (Trichy) jointly designed this vehicle at a cost of Rs 32,000 earmarked by the university in order to encourage their innovative spirit outside their curriculum but as part of their project work.

             Talking about the invention which is yet to be patented, the students said the 'eco-friendly vehicle' particularly meant for differently-abled people, was designed to overcome the effects of global warming and had the potential to substantially reduce air pollution. 

The battery can be recharged in two ways: 

using photo voltaic panel and external electric supply.


             The students first participated in the Velammal Silver Jubilee Science Utsav-2010, and the real recognition came to them when the eco-challenger was the only project for the handicapped out of a total of 25 projects selected for the final presentation at Asia's largest tech fest held at IIT, Bombay. The prototype was also showcased at Mechaica Fair of the IITM, Chennai, and it was one of the nine projects selected, but the only working prototype made for physically challenged people.
