Human Powered Vehicle
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is holding their annual Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) Challenge this spring. The challenge requires that each team build a safe, functioning HPV that will optimally perform while abiding by the rules and regulations set forth in the competition handbook. In preparing for the competition, the Boise State University HPV team will strive for optimal performance through teamwork and communication. The team will be modifying the existing vehicle in accordance with the outlined design requirements from the ASME handbook. The team will be responsible for designing the drivetrain, making a roll cage for the frame, braking systems, a new steering system, and aerodynamic fairing to fit around the body of the vehicle.
