The team of 48 members were recruited after a brief test and interview process conducted by 12 core members of the team. 12 core members divided into 3 subsystem having 4 members in each- Steering and Suspension, chassis and Drive train and brakes sub system were divided and 48 members were split respectively.

The teams started with design and analysis, starting from prototyping by a PVC pipe model, from the 3d cad design done in CATIA V5 and Solidworks. The design was optimized and modified to improve performance and later analyzed using ANSYS and LOTUS Shark.

The fabrication phase started from the month of May 2018 and vehicle was tested for its ability. AISI 4130 was used for chassis, Aluminum for Wheel assembly, and gearbox. Custom wheel assembly, gearbox, chassis, pedal column, steering column was designed and fabricated in house in the workshop.

“WANDERER” the 2019 vehicle was launched on 1ST February 2019, boasting an overall weight of 150Kgs with 2.3 meter turning radius. An overall weight of 100kgs was reduced from the 2016 vehicle PHEONIX.
