Madanapalle: Students of final year mechanical engineering K Sreepathi Naidu, K Raja Reddy, P Pavani and T Nagarajuna of Madanapalle Institute of Technology and Science (MITS) have taken up a pioneering project work under the guidance of Assistasnt Professor M Subba Rao on ‘Design and fabrication of tricycle that works on kinetic energy recovery system’.

It bagged the first prize in the Foundation for Advancement of Education and Research (FAER) annual presentation sponsored by the Motorola Solutions Foundation, USA, in Bengaluru on Friday. Engineering students from across the country participated.

Of the 31 papers, MITS students were selected for the first prize. They secured a scholarship of Rs.75,000. Principal Dr C Yuvaraj, head, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Dr G Harinath Goud, Dean RRC Dr M Kumaraswamy and the teaching staff congratulated the students.

The tricycle enables physically-challenged persons to ride easily on uneven ground, including steep down and steep up areas.
They need not put in hard efforts, thanks to a spring in the device which stores kinetic energy that enables the vehicle to climb easily. A switch enables the rider to use the stored energy to climb and to control the speed.
