Dream for every engineer
Dream for every engineer is to create something of his own. Team Enigma the collegiate automotive club of PESIT South Campus, engineering college at Electronic City, built three cars this year. One was an ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle), Hybrid car (runs on electricity and fuel) and a GO KART to represent PESIT-BSC at various National events.
The BAJA division of Team Enigma, built an ATV which represented the college at the SAEINDIA BAJA 2018 event at Pithampur. BAJA is an internationally recognized event. The event is evaluated rigorously by eminent industrialists and experts from SAE on team engineering, design, marketing and management abilities. The Team qualified within the 100 teams out of 400 teams competing for the final endurance race. The final endurance race tests is all about the track event where the vehicles are tested to extreme limits on a challenging terrain. The Team managed to last for entire 4 hours of the endurance race, making it among the few to achieve this feat. Finally, team finished 2nd in the city and 57 place over all.
The hybrid vehicle runs on both a 300 cc IC engine and a 2kW motor. As the world is moving towards hybrid technologies, these college students are making a mark in that direction. The hybrid vehicle is able to achieve speeds of up to 65kmph and boosts of various electronic innovative features. The Team also took their car to ISIE Hybrid Vehicle Challenge, held at the Buddh International Circuit, Noida, where they stood 12th overall on a national level.
The Team Enigma was sponsored by PESIT Management and also our partners from industry include Tata Motors, Bosch, Brady Co others.
The team also participated at International Series of Karting held at Vizag. It was an event where the team was supposed to design and build the GO-Kart. The team participating for the first time won best driver award where our driver Raghavendra Basmi demonstrated extreme caliper and also the team won star of the event award.
The events were held in the second and third week of January. The Team had worked on the projects for almost a year. Himanshu Kumar and Anirudh Kashi were the captains for Baja and HVC respectively. The team was guided by faculty advisors; Dr. S V Satish and Mr. Varun Manujunath. The team mentor Dr. S. V. Satish said, “I am delighted by the Team’s performance this year. The team managed to handle the tough tasks of finding sponsors and developing the technical skills required.” Dr. J Surya Prasad , Principal and Director quoted clubs like Enigma encourages interdisciplinary concepts amongst the students and prepare them for real world problems when they enter modern industries.
The team said “‘Never give up’ was the main motive of our team. Despite many hurdles we worked hard and it was not just about the event, it was the journey. The biggest achievement of the Team was completing the endurance.”
The Team is looking forward for an even greater standing in future events, and shows no signs of losing momentum.
