‘Solar Rickshaw’ is one of the many endeavors to create an eco-friendly ambience around KIIT University’s 17 campuses spread over 25 sq. km area. The project is a technology-business initiative to be implemented across the campus network to enable mobility, while keeping costs and carbons low. Drawing power from the sun, the batteries charge themselves while waiting for students or visitors to take a ride. The in-wheel motor can pull a payload of 250 kilograms on average slope for considerable distances. With nine months of plentiful sunshine supply and ample demand for cheap intra-campus transport, this project from SIFE KISS-KIIT is a viable alternative to eco-choking petroleum-based transport modes.transport modes.
