About the RIT HPV Team 2011 Team Roster

Each year, for nearly a decade, RIT has sponsored a student-driven club that competes in a national competition related to human powered land vehicles. In the past, the HPV team has competed in the NASA Great Moonbuggy Race and has twice taken first place in the college division.

Creating a brand new vehicle each year allows students to generate creative designs and implement their passion for engineering in a venue specific to their interest. Computer Aided Design (CAD) software is used extensively to visualize our ideas before physical prototypes and finals products are made.

Due to the past successes at the NASA competition, the 2009-10 HPV team has decided to pursue a different competition. The ASME Human Powered Vehicle Challenge is a paved-ground land competition in which speed, endurance and/or utility capabilities are measured. As always, design is another factor that encourages schools not only to create time-tested vehicles but also those with innovative design concepts.
