Gadget For Punctured Vehicle

Project Abstract / Summary : In day to day life use of scooters in urban and rural areas are widely increasing because of its various advantages. But major problem occurs when it get punctured while riding then rider has to drag that punctured vehicle to the nearby repair shop (garage). If the scooter is drag it can completely damage the tire and which will often requires the replacement of the tire earlier than its normal expiry date, and with the punctured tire rider has to take lots of efforts to drag the vehicle. Also he has to face the problems like back pain, brings anxiety, will disturb his mind and also wastage of time and money.
According to the problems some solution has to be find out and hence the solution consist of the invention of gadget which should be easily installable, compact and cost effective.
Gadget includes C-shaped plate with two sided flaps for support the punctured tire, with a firm locking system such as a stud passing through the rim slots as well as the gadget slot for fixity. for easy riding four rollers are installed under the plate for maintaining the height difference between the ground and punctured tire so center of gravity of vehicle will maintained.

Why did you choose to work on this project topic : According to the statistical analysis, approximately out of hundred ten scooters get punctured per day that means this is a day to life problem faced by people since there is no facility of stepany or spare wheel provided. For dragging to nearby repair shop which is generally 1/2 to 1 km in urban areas and 3 to 4km in rural areas of India. So this is very difficult for the old people and women to drag the punctured scooter at midnight in midway of the road. Hence the project objective is that to reduce the efforts up to 50 to 60% while dragging which can save time and money.

Project Highlights : This project represents a simple solution for ordinary people since gadget is simple in design as it is not consist of difficult mechanism for installation also it is easily stored in under seat carrying capacity of scooter and cost effective so can be affordable to common people.And this is a new invention as this type of gadget is not available in the market.
