World Finals of Chem-E-Car

Posted:14 October 2019

Congratulations to Sarvesh Tusnial from MAE for winning 3rd place at the world finals of Chem-e-car competition.

The competition is held in Sydney, Australia from 28th September – 2nd October 2019. The team had to design a car powered and controlled by chemical reactions, capable of travel up to 50 meters. They were the only Singapore team competiting with teams from other countries like India, Indonesia, UK and Australia.

Being the only member from MAE, Tusnial took charge of the design of the car. He used a temperature difference mechanism coupled with Peltier circuits to convert thermal energy to electrical energy which in turn was used to power the motors that drove the wheels, pushing the car forward. The team initially wanted to use micro-controllers like Arduino to control the speed and power of the car, but since it went against competition rules, they used an innovative braking mechanism – vitamin C reaction with water, connected to an electrical brush that completed the circuit. Once the reaction reached a certain point, the circuit broke off and the car stopped.

Singapore-India Hackathon 2019

Posted: 5 November 2019

Over the weekend of 29th-30th September, 120 students from India and Singapore participated in the Singapore-India Hackathon 2019 held in IIT Madras in Chennai, India. There were 20 teams, each team consisting of 3 Indian students and 3 Singaporean students. This year the Hackathon focused on 3 themes - Good health and well-being, Quality education, and Affordable and clean energy. The winning team managed to design a smart pot with apertures to purify the air.

Congratulation to our student Tan Ming Kai Mitchell

and his teammates for winning the top place in the Singapore-India Hackathon and receiving a prize of SGD 10,000!


PSA Box Challenge 2019

Posted:29 Octobe​r 2019

Congratulations to our students Yeoh Yu Xuan, Wilson Lee, Yeoh Keong Cheng and Lim Yi Qing for winning 1st RUNNER UP for PSA Box Challenge! They managed to provide the best solution and stand out among the other teams from other universities.

The objective of the PSA Box Challenge was to design and build a delivery vehicle to transport and stack miniature 300-gram containers around a model yard. In the final phase, they competed with the other teams to load the containers from their yard area to the vessel as fast and accurately as possible. Teams were judged based on the points scored during the competition, innovation and creativity of design, build quality of machine and user interface.

The MAE team decided to build a quadcopter instead of a ground robot because it will be able to get from the yard area to the vessel more quickly. they had to make sure that the downwash generated by the drone does not blow containers away. To do so, they kept their drone relatively light at around 1.3 kg. The team also had to improve upon their earlier design by extending the motor arms to place the 4 motors further apart to spread the downwash out over a larger area, effectively reducing the downwash experienced by the container below the drone. Most of the main frame is 3D printed, while the motor arms are made from carbon fiber rods to ensure stiffness.

SMRT-NTU Innovation Challenge
