Sagar Group’s Sagar Institute of Science and Technology (SISTec) Gandhi Nagar Mechanical Engineering Department has successfully created a Solar Powered Go-Cart Vehicle under its research project sponsored by the National Project Implementation Unit (NPIU) under Collaborative Research Scheme.
The department was accorded a grant under TEQIP-III by Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki University with a time limit of one year to complete the project. Dr. Rashmi Dwivedi with her commitment and dedication in the pandemic made it all to create the machine under the expert guidance of Dr. Sanjay Chhalotre Associate Professor, SISTec. The machine has inputs from Prof Ashish Labade, Asst Professor Computer Science Department at SISTec on IoT (Internet of Things) applications in using the non-conventional source of energy.
