NID Students Win Laurels for Best SUT Design

Students of National Institute of Design (NID) have bagged first prize for best industrial design of a Sustainable Urban Transport (SUT) solution for a specific urban area (city) for the year 2030. They have also won the best collaboration award for designing and engineering the best SUT at the PACE Global Annual Forum that recently concluded in Vancouver, Canada. The competition was held from July 27 to July 30.

NID Students Win Laurels for Best SUT Design

Gaurang Nagre, Malav Sanghvi of NID guided by their faculty Vipul Vinduza were part of Team-3 which led the Industrial design activities while collaborating with four other engineering colleges.
While NID students were in-charge of the actual design for the SUT which includes exterior body and the interior features, Bangalore-based PES Institute of Technology chose to design the cars propulsion, energy and steering systems. Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE), Mysore was in charge of the network integration and the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Universidad Ibero Americana, Mexico was given charge of the suspension and braking systems. Michigan Technological University, USA handled the electronics and the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) of the car.

We are thrilled and excited to have won five awards. It’s an awesome feeling to win in front of such a great jury and audience. We enjoyed the success of team spirit. We got to meet designers from General Motors, marketing and production engineering experts along with many eminent academicians from various universities from across globe at the event, said an elated Nagre. The collaboration of different teams during the design and engineering period entitled them to win the Overall Collaboration Award for their concept vehicle PEEL. The vehicle was designed by Gaurang Nagre and modelled by Malav Sanghvi, both final-year Product Design students. Team-3 was one of the seven global teams from 30 universities at the competition.

The main highlight of PEEL is the concept of autonomous driving. The two-seater car, inspired from an orange, can maneuver itself on Indian roads, giving the user complete freedom from driving. Various features like in place turning, drive by wire steer by wire, interactive GPS frontal display etc are unique features of the car. It is an honour for NID that our students have won on an international forum. Our project was appreciated for system-level design thinking and design process. The team work and collaborating with engineering college students have provided newer means to learning and developing professional attitude during their studies, said Project guide Vipul Vinzuda, coordinator of Transportation and Automobile Design at NID.
