Human Powered Vehicle Competition
Dr. Steve Tennyson
Every year the American Society of Mechanical Engineers hosts a Human Powered Vehicle competition. A Human Powered Vehicle is a highly engineered and aerodynamic vehicle that can be used for racing or everyday travel using no outside power source. The team of students from Boise State University are responsible for vehicle design, build, testing, and competing. The competition has strict safety rules that must be followed and consists of sprint and endurance events. Submissions are scored on design, ingenuity, and race results.
