Innovative Projects

Go-Kart

ARYAN RACING 2016-2017

Coordinators:Prof.Santhosh B Deveerappa and Prof.Varadaraj K R

ARYAN RACING TEAM is an official racing team of REVA University. The team consists of 20 members, students from School of Mechanical Engineering studying in various semesters. The team is guided by two faculty members of the school, Mr. Varadaraj K R and Mr. Santhosh B Deveerappa.

The team has participated in Elite Racing 2017 (EK 15), Elite Racing is a subsidiary of the Elite Techno Groups which hosts racing events in different categories such as Go-Kart racing, All Terrain Vehicle races and Formula one prototype races. The event provide a platform for participants with different qualifications such as undergraduates and graduates to learn with us how to make racing machines, build it and then race against each other.

EK 15 a racing extravaganza where undergraduate participants learned the basics of designing a go-kart, design a virtual prototype of their racing kart, build and optimize it and then finally race it on the racing track. Racing was held on the RPM racing track at Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh from 13th February to 21stFebruary, 2017. The event gained mass popularity with 168 teams participating from 16 different states of the country.

Unmanned Sea Tanker

Coordinators:Prof.C D Hampali

A tanker is a large type of armored fighting vehicle with tracks, designed for frontline combat. In the conventional tankers, the turret part will have limited angular motion about the vertical axis of the tanker and there is no movement about its transverse axis. In the present work an attempt has been done to design and develop a “Unmanned naval defense tanker” in which the target can be aimed in all the directions and to meet the aerodynamic features to reduce the wind pressure efficiently and effectively.
