About the Practice
Problem Statement:

New innovation in mobility


The chassis is made of commercially available polished nickel pipes. Wheels are taken from a scooter while engine is of a moped. The steering gear is made with simple mechanical linkages and mechanical brakes with accelerator, similar to jeeps and other vehicles, have also been provided. The innovativeness lies in the fact that the frontand rear wheels are free wheels, while the rear central wheel (the fifth wheel) is the only driven wheel. Power from engine is transmitted directly to the fifth wheel. This technique eliminates the differential on driving axle and also reduces power losses. Current model of the car does not have gears. Positions of wheels and driving mechanism is different from a five-wheeled toy car1 , the only example found during prior art search for any such car in market or patent database. The prototype has been tested and driven in the village with four passengers riding on it. The innovators plan to use a more powerful engine (100 or 150 cc bike engine) and also to incorporate a gearbox in it. They plan to provide a jack system with spring at center to be able to lift the rear portion of the car.Due to its low component count and innovativeness, projected cost for final car with all features should be within Rs 55,000-60,000.
