[RULES & REGULATIONS] Inter University Design Contest 2013

Inter University Design Contest

Universal Accessibility in Public Transport


Mission
Bangladeshi Systems Change Advocacy Network (B-SCAN) & Engineering Students Association of Bangladesh (ESAB) [hereinafter we] want to get a design for the public road transportation system (specially based on public bus) where wheelchair depended people can move comfortably by themselves.

Theme and Inspiration


In Bangladesh 15% of total population is differently able and unfortunately still we do not know the exact figure of how many people are depended on wheelchairs. And thus still we do not have such a system where they can have a better everyday life. For making these people able to move around us comfortably just like us and for making aware the other people about this serious issue we are going to arrange a design contest. We hope the engineering students from different disciplines will make this initiative successful. As an engineering student, do you dream for such a Bangladesh where a wheelchair depended person can reach his/her destination by sitting beside you in a public bus? Are you the that person who loves to dream for such a country and if you are then yes we are in search of you. If Engineering means Innovation, Idea and Humanity to you, Then You can design it. We want unique and equal access to transport, we want equality in mobility, your best design can give us solution for better life. Come and join, Design to break the barriers. Get registered today and make you proud to be a part of this nationwide noble contest.

Challenge
This is the high time to design a perfect & easily implementable solution for the wheelchair depended people so that they can move from the footpath to inside of the bus. This is the one & only challenge in this contest. Your solution can come from any perception of engineering like mechanical, civil or architecture. But ideas will have to be implementable from the perspective of the current city transportation (city bus services, especially BRTC Bus services) system of Bangladesh. You will have to design your solution in such a way that make us able to directly implement your solution practically, so even a simple length measurement is an important fact in this contest. Your solution will only be based on a design for the wheelchair depended person and making them able to ride a public bus (BRTC china bus) from the footpath. You will find an innovative solution and you will prove it as practically implementable in our country. In different rounds of this contest you will have to make your idea more mature and feasible and you will have to provide necessary prototypes of your design to prove that practically.

Contest Details
Solution/design concepts can come from any perception like mechanical, mechatronics, civil engg, architectural and so on. Contests details are given below Primary Round

In this round, you will have to just illustrate your solution in written manner. Put some technical details and mention the feasibility. 1. In this round you will have to submit an abstract of your total project plan to complete your registration. 2. Abstract will be no longer than 4 pages. [Use regular fonts, size & line spacing,] 3. You will have to explain your entire concept in this abstract and the technical aspects in brief. 4. You will have to evaluate your concept/project from the perspective of Bangladesh. 5. You can modify an existing system for Bangladesh or you can evaluate a unique system and if you propose for an existing system then you will have to make it efficient. 6. You can use 3D sketch, relevant pictures or any other graphical content related to your plan. But you will have to mention the sources. Selected (number depends on the participation) entries will be qualified for the Group Stage Round. Group Stage Round In this round you will have to give a presentation on the project plan. [Venue will be declared by the contest organizing team]. Your presentation will have to include the followings Brief of your entire project plan. Engineering Details. 3d Simulation/ 3D prototype in any platform (AutoCAD, 3DMax etc) & Circuit simulations (preferably in proteus.) and mechanical simulation. (if necessary) Engineering drawings (if necessary) Other necessary technical stuffs that requires proving your design implementable.

Judgment will be based on Innovation. Feasibility Relevancy of Bangladeshi Road Transport System (Public Bus & Bus Stopage). Cost Efficiency. Engineering Efficiency. Uniqueness of Idea. Implementation easement. Adoptability. Sustainability

Field Trip & Grooming Session Probably you will have to do nothing here but gathering practical information. Attending field trip & grooming session is must for all of the qualifying teams. [Field Trip & Grooming Session will be arranged by Contest organizing team].

Final Round In this round you will have to give a presentation on the project plan and you will also have to showcase the complete prototype/model of your design/concept/project. Assume that in this round you will practically implement your design in a system and based on this assumption develop your prototype/model. Your presentation will have to include the followings Brief of your entire project plan. Engineering Details. 3d Simulation/ 3D prototype in any platform (Autocad, 3DMax etc) & Circuit simulations (preferably in proteus.) and mechanical simulation. Engineering drawings (if necessary) A Complete prototype model

Judgment will be based on Innovation. Model/prototype making Feasibility Relevancy of Bangladeshi Road Transport System (Public Bus & Bus Stoppage). Cost Efficiency. Engineering Efficiency. Uniqueness of Idea. Implementation easement. Adoptability. Sustainability Brief description on How to implement in our country Presentation Skill
