Abstract:
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) hosts the annual Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC), in which student design teams from universities and colleges around the world design, build, and compete human powered vehicles. A human powered vehicle is just any vehicle whose motive power comes from the exertion of its driver(s). The University of Arizona’s (UA) entry in the 2016 HPVC West, Magnum, succeeds Blue Steel (2013), Le Tigre (2014), and Ferrari (2015). It is the most ambitious project undertaken by the UA human powered vehicle team, featuring a carbon fiber/aluminum hybrid frame and full fairing, and a custom built steering system. An onboard electronics suite includes turn signals, a traffic horn, and a novel Roll Alert System, an Android app developed by the team to alert everyone in the event of a vehicle rollover or crash. Both the mechanical and electronic systems were designed and built from the ground up by this year’s team. Magnum is also the best-performing UA human powered vehicle in recent history, earning Top 10 ranks in the 2016 HPVC West’s Design and Innovation categories, and 13th overall.
