Submitted by alvin on Thu, 2016-05-26 15:52 Vadodara: Four engineering students ofVadodara's Navrachana Universityhave designed a vehicle to help specially-abled people commute with ease. The students and professor of the varsity came up with the idea while working on a project to develop the car as part of their final semester course. Harshil Shah, one of the students, admitted that there were some limitations in the vehicle and they were working for improvement. "There are limitations for handicapped persons. A person with an amputated leg or hand can operate this vehicle. We can develop other mechanism to cover all the conditions. The car has been built with certain limitations. We have attached clutch, break and accelerator with a single lever," said Shah. Professor Amrish Burgujar said they will file for patent of the vehicle. "All the four students have been working with me for the last one year. They have perfectly done the work assigned to them. We have planned to develop something for the physically disabled persons to resolve their transportation problem. Our future plan is to patent it," Burgujar added. The team is in talks with some of the leading companies to develop the vehicle on commercial basis. (ANI)
