The Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IITD) today announced the results of ASME HPVC (Human Powered Vehicle Challenge) Contest. Under the aegis of ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), this contest was held in India for the first time.Delhi Technological University (DTU) partnered with IIT Delhi in organizing this event.
Team Wheelism from ISM Dhanbad won this year’s championship. Winners in individual categories are as follows:
· Design Event won by Chandigarh Group of Colleges
· Endurance Race won by Rajarambapu Institute of Technology
· Drag Race won by Jamia Milia Islamia
This year’s design event was sponsored by Dassault Systems, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company.
Over the years, ASME HPVC event has attracted large number of college students from various parts of the world. This year’s event acted as a platform for students from various parts of India to showcase their technological and engineering prowess by engineering and realising a human powered vehicle as per the given requirements. The event is also a medium to promote environmental sustainability by designing viable modes of transportation for future needs.
HPVC is an inter college design, fabrication and racing competition for students where teams have to conceptualise, design and fabricate a human powered vehicle to participate in a three day event comprising of design competition, endurance race and a drag race. The objective of the races is to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate the speed and reliability of their vehicles.

ASME HPVC chief Dr. Michael Moorhead said, “We are very excited to see India's inaugural ASME Human Powered Vehicle Challengehosted at IIT-Delhi with Delhi Technological University as synergetic partner. Co-curricular competition project opportunities, like HPVC,motivate engineering students to develop important skills not commonly taught in theclassroom. In addition to the application of sound engineering principles, studentsmust adhere to firm deadlines, financial constraints, and reconcile open-endedproblem statements - skills which are highly valued by today's employers.  We hopethat this event is able to establish a lasting and meaningful presence, openingdoors that were not previously open to aspiring Indian engineers.”

Commenting on the awards announcement and Dassault Systemes association with it, Dr. Chandan Chowdhury, Managing Director-India Dassault Systèmes said, “Growth of sustainable worlds is the core of the work we do at Dassault Systemes and I am extremely proud to be associated with a contest which recognises innovative work in this area. I am also delighted to see the level of creative solutions which young engineers from across the country have come up with and I congratulate everyone including the winners on this stupendous work, they make me very optimistic about the future of 3D Design in India”
The event witnessed participation of 36 teams from across the country which included IITs NITs, BITS Pilani, ISMDhanbad.
