‘Srishti 2012,’ is a platform for innovation. It gives an opening for conceptualisation, thought process, development and invention, said Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda after inaugurating the State-level project exhibition and competition organised by Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishat at Sahyadri College of Engineering in Mangalore on Saturday.
One could see racing cars, flying helicopters, electricity generating machines, and other eye-catchy innovations at the venue.
Students of Basaweshwara Engineering college from Bagalkot had put up a display of different cars designed by them.
Speaking to Deccan Herald, College Student Suresh Kadly explained that the team has created ‘F3800’ racer, an 800cc, 15 HP racing car. The car runs on a petrol engine and has been used by the college in inter-university racing competitions.
The college team has also designed a dirt racing car which can easily be driven in deserts, trenches, grasslands.
“We have designed a quad-bike which can climb a hill of 35 degree inclination. This bike is given four wheels for stability and has independent suspension in front and mono-suspension in the back,” says BEC college student Venugopal.
