Students Make Their Move For Eco-Friendly Transportation
Better alternative transportation technologies. This would be the goal of student engineering teams who would be hailing from more than thirty of the elite universities in the whole country. These teams would be using SolidWorks software to get to such a goal. This event would be taking places this summer.
SolidWorks is a registered trademark of SolidWorks Corporation. The corporation is actually a company that is holds goals like developing and marketing new software that could be used to design, analyze, and manage product data. In fact, this company is well known as the leading supplier of 3D CAD technology as well as other types of software that has been very helpful to teams set out on designing great products.
The event would be known as the Vehicle Design Summit and this is the very first of its kind. It has already started last 13th of this month and it would be ending on the 13th of August this year. The teams of engineering students would be thinking up of new ways to operate a fleet of innovative vehicles which would be using non-carbon hybrid technologies. In fact, as part of their production, they would also have to design such an operation as well as implement their creations. Their fleet of vehicles would be using human power, biofuels, fuel cells and solar power among many others.
Anna Jaffe is sophomore in one of the elite universities and she also is one of the organizers for this event. She states, “This project is a reaction to the fact that over two decades, entrants in the World Solar Challenge have by default converged on a single winning design, the execution of which determines the winner. The idea behind the Vehicle Design Summit is to channel energies in a direction that might directly benefit the world more than pure racing does. Our designs will reflect practical concerns like driving unsupported on real roads at viable speeds in countries with limited financial resources. We want to design better products that are drivable, parkable, economical, and sustainable.”
