A very unique stall can be seen this year at Auto Expo where there is no glittering glamour but definitely one can see towering passion. It is not any R&D department or an Auto giant but the students of Lovely professional University (LPU) who are showcasing their talent on such a huge platform as Auto Expo. The students of LPU have showcased their 15 vehicles which have been conceptualized, designed, developed and manufactured by themselves, at the Delhi Auto Expo-2014.
A part of the attractive line up of vehicles displayed at the expo were an array of new offerings - world’s first family solar car, world’s smallest car, mobile operated driverless Car, multi-‘ energy ‘Smart Hybrid Car’, Unique bikes, Hybrid Cryogen Engine, Hexa Copter, All Terrain Vehicles amongst others. Developed as a part of the world- class application based curriculum at LPU, each project highlights the talent and the thrust given to creativity at the university.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Ashok Mittal, Chancellor, Lovely Professional University said, “It’s a privilege to be a part of Delhi Auto Expo showcasing our University’s talent. We aim to be a truly global university where innovation, technological advancement and R&D are core to every initiative we undertake. This project is a sneak peek into the talent and innovation at LPU. Conceptualized on both inventive and practical factors, these vehicles would be commercialized later. All the vehicles have freshness in their design as these students’ creativity was not limited by the industry expectation. Students’ creativity was propelled by a huge passion and dedication to provide practical solutions. I am overwhelmed with the originality and creativity displayed by the students, and wish them all the best in their future endeavours”. Mr Mittal also disclosed that the University is in serious discussion with one of the global fortune top 50 companies for design collaboration for these as well as future projects of the university. He added that the details of the collaboration would be shared very soon.
