Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Auto-rickshaw is a popular mean of transport in India and many other countries. Nowadays,most of them are based in design of the Piaggio Ape C from 1956. They are antiquated, unsafe and highly pollution, so there is substantial room for improvement in these huge market. A new auto-rickshaw is designed, safer, more modern and environmentally friendly.This project is focused in improving the initial designs for production. Starting from a new exterior design, all the structural components will be developed in order to get a platform feasible to be manufactured by Gestamp. This company has provided information to perform the parts to adapt them to the manufacturing requirements. This thesis starts making first basic decisions related with the vehicle structure and materials. The project continues with CAD designs of the parts. It carries on with analysis of the manufacturability and concludes with all the components ready for production. The three main aims designing he parts are safety, low weight and economy.
