Young Innovators are appreciated for their smart idea
Two undergraduates from city have come up with an innovative idea that has the potential to change the work efficiency of Municipal Administration if adopted. They have designed a multi-functional smart and versatile vehicle integrating three different but important functions into it.
Who are they?
M Charan Lal and U Anil Kumar are the creators of this machine which can be used for Grass Cutting, Mopping and Sweeping. In this way this single vehicle can perform three different functions in addition to few more features. It can be added with other tools like surveillance camera based on the requirement.
More interestingly, this vehicle designed by Charan and Anil, does not use any fuel but is attached to a Solar Panel and uses solar power to function. Interestingly, the vehicle can be detached and assembled as per the requirement.
Both the youngsters are students of Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Engineering and Technology in Gandipet. They are pursuing Mechatronics and designed this vehicle as part of their final year project work assignment.
What is it all about?
Both are appreciated for their innovative idea from cross sections of the society. Explaining about the vehicle, Charan Lal said that it was not only a multi-functional but also a multi dimensional vehicle.
He said, “It runs with solar power as well as electrically as per the need. Moreover, it can be controlled by a sensor remote. It would be very much useful for performing basic functions in municipal bodies.”
- It performs Sweeping, Mopping and Grass Cutting.
- It sweeps and collects dust, waste.
- It can cut grass, collects the grass. Besides this, it softens the rough tips of grass.
- Runs on Solar Power and also on electricity.
- Visualization is installed in the vehicle to observe the operations.
- Moppers and Sweeping tools are detachable.
- Best suited for Gated Communities, Club Houses, Indoor and Out Door Stadiums.
- Customization can be done as per the requirement.
“We are improvising this machine and seek to contact municipal authorities to show them demonstration of functions”, said Charan Lal.
The vehicle is the combination of electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering. The two youngsters claim that their vehicle is first of its kind in the world.
How He got this idea?
Charan Lal said that he got this idea when he was participating in a three months Swachh Bharat Internship some time ago. He then started to contribute to the story of Swachh Bharat and ideated this vehicle and designed this innovation.
“I wanted to come up with a smart solution for different tasks involving cleaning the roads, work spaces and other places with minimal use of power less man power”, Charan said. The vehicle designed by us is smart, versatile and easy to transport, he added.
