    We’re excited to announce that the HPVC events will now be taking place at ASME’s global E-Fests (Engineering Festivals). E-Fests are three-day, two-night regional events built around design, advanced manufacturing and robotics technologies. They enable engineering students to expand their knowledge, test and showcase new skills and inspire innovation.

    You must register online for HPVC through the regional E-Fest website. E-Fests will be taking place in the following locations in 2017:

    E-Fest Asia Pacific
    March 3-5, 2017
    Hosted by LNM Institute of Information Technology
    Jaipur, India

    E-Fest North America West
    March 2017

    E-Fest North America East
    April 21-23, 2017
    Hosted by Tennessee Tech University
    Cookeville, Tennessee

    E-Fest Latin America

    E-Fest North Africa

    OVERVIEW

    Human-powered transport is often the only type available in underdeveloped or inaccessible parts of the world, and if well designed, can be an increasingly viable form of sustainable transportation.

    ASME’s international Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate the application of sound engineering design principles in the development of sustainable and practical transportation alternatives.In the HPVC, students work in teams to design and build efficient, highly engineered vehicles for everyday use—from commuting to work, to carrying goods to market.

     

    ELIGIBILITY & REQUIREMENTS

    All participants must be current student members of ASME and enrolled as full-time students in an engineering program of study. Any student who was enrolled in an engineering program during the previous semester or quarter, but graduated no earlier than six months prior to the competition date, is eligible to participate. Participation in all HPVC events is not restricted to political boundaries and are open to eligible students globally.

    The first stage of the competition involves the preparation of a comprehensive design report. The second part includes a demonstration of a technical innovation included in the design, a speed event (either 100 meter flying start time trial or head-to-head drag race) and a 2.5 hour endurance race held over the course of a weekend. Guidelines and more detailed requirements (including safety measures and tests) can be found in the full competition rules.

    AWARDS & PRIZES

    The following list reflects the minimum prize increments for winners of the Human Powered Vehicle Challenge. Additional prizes and/or special award categories may apply, as determined by the ASME HPVC Committee and host institution.

    Prizes listed below represent total amounts conferred to winning teams, not to individual team members. Each winning Team Leader will be responsible for claiming his/her team prize following the competition, and is thereby responsible for the distribution of award monies to his/her teammates. Team Contact/Leader will contact ASME staff via e-mail to facilitate the payment process following the HPVC events.

    Vellore Institute of Technology
    March 17-19, 2016

    VIT University, formerly called Vellore Engineering College, is an Indian institute of higher education and a premier private institution located in Tamil Nadu, India. Founded in 1984, as Vellore Engineering College, byDr. G. Viswanathan, the institution offers 20 undergraduate, 34 postgraduate, 4 integrated and 4 research programs. The university draws students from 50 countries as well as from every state in India. It has campuses both at Vellore and Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. VIT University has consistently been ranked among the top ten engineering institutions in India by India Today and ranked first in Careers 360 (Magazine) Top Private Universities in India 2015.
    VIT Vellore has a lush green campus which spreads about 350 acres. It is divided in two by the Chennai–Bangalore railway line. The academic portion of the campus and the women’s hostels are to the south of the railway tracks while the northern portion houses the men’s hostels and the outdoor stadium. The campus resembles a city, with lake, gardens, lawns, residential complexes, food courts, hair salons and wide roads. The campus has its own water supply and backup electricity supply along with shopping complexes to cater to the needs of residents.
