AUTOMOBILE DEPARTMENT ACTIVITIES
Automobile Department Activities
1) HYBRID VEHICLE
Generally hybrid vehicle means use two or more distinct types of power, such as internal combustion engine plus electric motor. Electric motor is driven by battery and the battery is charged by external power source
In our hybrid vehicle there are two types of power source, SI engine &DC motor.DC motor is driven by battery and the battery is charged automatically by two 48V alternator when the vehicle are moving on the road. The DC motor drive can be used in city drive which can reduce city pollution to a great extent.Now a days air pollution is one of main reason of human concern. In our hybrid vehicle can contribute to minimizing air pollution.
Advantages of our hybrid vehicle
1: there is no external power source use for charging the battery(48V)
2: air pollution is minimum by less emission of harmful gases.
2) ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE:
This vehicle is designed to run both on and off roads. It is completely designed and fabricated by our students. This was initially a three wheeler auto. A wheel hub and wheel is attached to the modified front axle, which makes it a 4 wheeler bike. The steering is controlled by handle bar. A recalculating ball type steering gearbox with steering linkages are connected at front. Wishbone arm type suspensions are attached with front axle, so that it can absorb more shocks when going off roads.
3) SOLAR VEHICLE
Nowadays air pollution is one of the main reasons of human concern. And most of the air pollutions are happening due to the exhaust emissions of automobiles. So we decided to make a car which will not create exhaust emission, it will be driven by a motor. Non-renewable source of energy like petrol, diesels are also getting precious day by day. So we also decided to save these type of energy by avoiding using electricity from conventional source. So we have used Solar Panel to charge the batteries. So our car is powered by nonconventional/alternative power source and will not create any air pollution.
Advantages of our Solar Vehicle
i. It will not create any air pollution.
ii. Use of it will prevent Global Warming because it does not emit CO2.
iii. It does not need any conventional power source as we are using Solar panel.
iv. As no convention power source is required, running cost is almost zero.
Our vehicle is rear wheel driven. We have used a motor to drive the vehicle. The motor gets power from the batteries. And the batteries are charged by the Solar Panels. We have used McPherson Strut type suspension system in front and rear. Our car has a sitting capacity of five people. A controller is used to vary the speed of the vehicle by varying the speed of the motor. We have also attached rack and pinion type Steering linkages and pulley type Brake Linkages.
4) FRIEND OF FARMERS:
This is a four wheeler rear wheel driven vehicle with 4-stroke diesel engine. It is completely designed and fabricated by our students. They have assembled various components to fabricate this vehicle. A bucket is attached at rear portion which can carry loads. The engine is located at front. A belt type clutch is used. Cross section of frame is “l” type. Engine starting system is manually operated. The cost of this vehicle is low and affordable for farmers. The purpose of making this vehicle is to help the farmers to carry loads.
5) STEERING COLUMN DRIVE VEHICLE:
This is a three wheeler vehicle which can be driven by steering column. The total concept is developed by our students. And the vehicle is completely fabricated by them. The vehicle can be steered also even if it is in running condition. There are both forward movement and backward movement is possible. A paddle is attached by pressing which someone can change the direction of motion of the vehicle. This is a concept project and it can be developed further to meet proper running conditions at roads.
