Team Dirt Marshall of UPES,
Dehradun comprising of 25 mechanical and automotive design engineering students
showcased an innovative all-terrain vehicle, all conceptualised, designed,
developed and manufactured by them, at the on-going Auto Expo 2018.
The all-terrain vehicle
earlier emerged as the winner in the ‘Sledge Pull’ competition at BAJA SAE
India in 2017, where it managed to grab eyeballs nationally. It secured 1st
Rank and cash prize of Rs 1,00,000.
The UPES stall where the
all-terrain vehicle has been displayed was inaugurated by Dr. Abhay Firodia,
Chairman, Force Motors Ltd. & President, SIAM.
The machine is a race off-road
vehicle that can withstand the harshest elements of rough terrain. It is similar
in appearance to dune buggies. The 4-wheel drive machine gives a high torque
and better traction. It is also compact with only 50" wheelbase and has
cutting brakes applied on rear wheels. It also has a whole chassis made of 4130
chromoly steel, aluminium wishbones and titanium steering rack.
It also has a hanging hammock
seat that would reduce mounting weights. This vehicle would cost approximately
Rs 4-4.lakh during the mass production and can be a saviour for people living
in difficult terrains.
Currently, it is a concept
vehicle that is in its elementary phase of functioning. If brought into
commercial production, it would bring in radical change in the lives of those
living in the harsh terrains of the country.
