Awesome post Rehaan, the pics and the descriptions were very informative.

Its good to see the interest and enthusiasm of colleges and students growing every year. Also I think Auto Expo is the most suited platform for showcasing the talent.

Saw this today, in fact just now.
Have to go through the thread slowly, later.

This is possibly, (to me) the most important thread of the Auto Show 2010.
It represents and showcases some of our bright young minds and their ideas.
Reinforces my opinion that the automobile industry is evolving very fast in India and is a good career option for many talented designers and engineers.

Further reinforces my opinion that we as a nation are well on way to a better future, both in terms of new ideas in technology, and in their implementation.

Very solid post-thank you Rehaan.

Please ask the youngsters to keep on updating these posts as they refine and upgrade their models.

Default Limitations to student projects in India

Agree with you Ajay.

Every one who is into such projects in this country will strongly agree with me here.

Indian corporates need to get more involved in such things. Because we are their future, nurturing us at this stage would help them and the automotive world in general in the future.

They need to learn from their international counterparts.

Citing a German example (without taking names):
  • Teams and companies are in actual collaborations
  • I know of a tyre manufacturer working with a team, they actually develop compunds and constructions from the data collected from team's test sessions
  • There is a lot of transfer of know-how

This is just one example, this goes on for everything, from chassis to ECU.

The international universities also have a lot of high-class infrastructure in house, because they work on a research model.

While we here have a affiliated college model, with only the very basic facilities available to us.

The corporates have these facilities, but they do not want to anyone except themselves to have access to them.
(I am talking about simple stuff, dynamometers, test track, CMM machine, etc)

If, that is not possible, atleast provide us with monetory help, so that we can access these things commercially.

Talking specifically about my team,
2010 will be our fourth year, and 5th car.

Initially, we were limited by our knowledge and experience, we were just getting our basics right.

Now, (especially this year), we are very highly limited by the infrastructure, we have learnt enough and also have experience to make a world beating vehicle, but without the right infrastructure and industry help, we cannot achieve what we dream and even what we can.

Now, government policies (or lack of policies when it comes to such things) kill the small budget we have.
A lot of parts are just not available in india, eg. Engines and its spares, safety equipment, the required differentials, dampers, ECU, tires, etc. etc.
This list goes on.

When we import such stuff, we pay through our noses towards the custom duties.

So, here we go, i might sound frustrated, but, I am, we all are, and we cant do anything about it.

We as a team have almost lost hope on the corporate world and have started looking at other non-corporate sources for our funds.

Not all is bad, i take this opportunity to thank CII, ACMA, SIAM for providing us with this wonderful opportunity to showcase our talent at the AutoExpo, and TeamBHP for covering us, and for all other indirect help that it provides, viz. KnowHow, insider buzz, etc., etc.

Hi Rehaan

Very good thread....

So many innovative products and designs...
No wonder, Mr. Tata was interested too.

I forget the name of the college involved in this project. There's a sticker on the vehicle and i hope someone has information on this vehicle.

That is NSIT's solar car.

It was built an year after DCE's solar car. Both technological catastrophes (I might be wrong about the NSIT one though).

Default Coupling a CVT with a Honda CBR


I'm looking to build a race car for a college competition. I want to use a Honda CBR 600 F4 engine with a CVT (made by some Chinese mfg). The power limitations of the transmission seem fine(upto 60kW). Wanted to know if its a good idea. And if yes, how would I go about doing it.
