Students of the Ecole Normale Supérieure and Polytechnique de Maroua (ENSP) in the Far North region of Cameroon manufactured an environmental ecological vehicle. Anti-polluting and without bodywork, the vehicle was presented to the Minister of Youth and Civic Education (MINJEC), Mounouna Foutsou on the occasion of the International Youth Day that was celebrated on 12th of August 2017 in Yaoundé.
For students of mechanical engineering, ” the level of environmental pollution on the planet is worrying today. Faced with this very worrying problem, it is wise to do a few things to limit the damage “.
The vehicle in question was designed with a comfortable 5-seat. It meets all standards in terms of respect for the environment. It supports a load of 25 kilograms. The vehicle was made from recovered waste materials and an imported engine. It is powered by four 24A batteries, for a range of 90km.
The vehicle runs at an average speed of 80km / h, has state-of-the-art electronic equipment and can be accessed on all tracks (bitumen or not). One of the inventors, Michel Angel Ivan Takodjou Nguemto reported that the design of their craft took 5 years and manufacture about 5 months.
This invention was achieved through modest contributions from designers (students) and support from parents.
” We are willing to demonstrate all that we have gained as knowledge. Fighting pollution is our battleground. But in view of the lack of financial resources we have, in order to multiply these vehicles which can reduce the use of fuel-fueled vehicles, we hope that the public authorities will come to our aid in order to put an end to this disaster which is tending to destroy The planet, “said the creative geniuses.
