MAHINDRA AND MAHINDRA LTD.
Universities from around India come to participate in this competition. The challenge for the engineering students is to design and fabricate an SAE Baja Buggy. Safety features on the car must be followed as set by the SAE competition. Teams are then scored based on the vehicle’s performance in dynamic events (acceleration, a pulling event, maneuverability, rock crawl, and endurance) and static events (design report, cost report, and presentation). The team GCOEA designed ATV (All-terrain vehicle) which successfully passed all quality and design checks and completed all laps of the race. In addition to holding up to the harsh off-road terrain, the car has to be designed to be lightweight and inexpensive. The car is not only judged on the performance or completion of the race but there is a cost report as well as an engineering design report. The car has to conform to all of the rules stated in
the SAE‟s rulebook.
