This year, the Union College Human Powered Vehicle team designed and built a new vehicle from the ground up. From designing a vehicle given a set of specifications and constraints to having the design fabricated and to constructing the final vehicle, student team members were given chances to be involved in every step of the engineering process. Our primary objective was to create a high-performance vehicle that would compete well, but also that would be simple enough to construct and maintain. A tadpole trike with two front wheels and one back allowing for better handling and has more stability than a bicycle and is less likely to roll when turning compared to a delta trike. The vehicle was simplified from previous teams by removal of the fairing, front shifting mechanism, and other heavy components not directly related to the functionality of the vehicle.
