CHENNAI: Priyadharshan Chidhambararaja, an M Tech(ICE-Industry-ARAI) student at Veltech Dr RR & Dr SR Technical University has won the Daimler Student Innovation Competition held at the Euro Brake 2015 Conference at Dresden, Germany.
EuroBrake is the world’s largest conference held annually, catering to the braking industry.
The Daimler Student Innovation Competition inspired students around the world to design a technical poster, representing their vision of what brakes will look like in 2025.
The competition had participants from 16 different countries like the US, Germany, Italy, UK, Singapore and China. Students from some of the top universities participated in the competition. The project work on ‘Using effective disc radius to prevent wheel lock and minimise stopping distance in a two wheeler’ by Priyadharshan was selected as winner among various entries.
With this project, Priyadharshan was able to achieve optimum braking force required to stop a two-wheeler without wheel lock or skidding in any condition. It can help maintain stability of the two wheeler. thereby preventing accidents. His project has gained recognition and appreciation from leading industry experts around the world who have visited the conference.
