THE DIGITAL GAZETTE- 3RD EDITION

Hello, all our wonderful readers. RVSCT is back this month with the third edition of our DIGITAL GAZETTE. Hope you guys have a jolly read.

This month fueled a lot of paper work, purchase orders, permissions and so many complex terminologies, my head goes bizarre thinking about. The Finance and Logistics Team have been sweating their heads of so that we get the materials and equipment without any delay. This month has been very busy for our Mechanical and Electronics subsystems, as well.

The Mechanical Team have successfully completed the test car’s chassis. The month began with finalizing the right place to get our chassis made without compromising quality in any form. The other mechanical components were finalized and purchase orders were being raised. The various components have been clarified in terms of the price, the quality and the quantity. The formal quotations were discussed with our project guides and taken forward. The design team are ardently working on top shell analysis, and the suspensions team had to redesign some of the components for laser cutting. Some of the components are getting customized by CNC Machining.

The Body Fabrication Team successfully finished the canopy pattern and gave it a paint coating. The artistic realms of the creative minds were getting fulfilled while finishing the canopy. Sanding the excess material off the apparent surface and applying wall putty and making bondo were some of the micro details of the canopy finishing. A leader in carbon fiber has successfully collaborated with us. They would also visit our workshop by this year end giving us our Christmas Present.

The Electronics Team have renamed themselves as “THE E TEAM”, have shown remarkable scaled up work. The battery cells were being finalized for which we had a good chunk of companies ready to support us. The best quality cells from all over the world will reach us in no time. The Telemetry division was jotting down every point to deliver in their mails to the companies they had met at BIEC, explain this. BIEC-India’s first “LEED – Certified” Green Exhibition & Conference Facility. It is a congregation where exhibition and conference facilities are at par with the international standards.There were also successful rounds of motor testing performed.

The Sponsorship Team were joyous when Wipro agreed to support this vision of ours, yet again. This really boosted the spirit of the whole team to just not give up. As every ‘impossible’ simply means ‘I AM POSSIBLE’ and we harmoniously say ‘We will make the impossible.’ The Non- Technical subsystems have also picked up and are doing their best to make this sail smooth. Our Logistics Team have coordinated in sync and we will soon be receiving high efficiency Solar cells from SUNPOWER.

Our new team members- Our Beloved Juniors have been having meetings and interactive sessions with our electronics wing. They are being mentored by our very Electronics Lead to instill the spark in this project. They have been given assignments. Very recently after a debated discussion we have planned to assign them projects to work on in small groups to build their foundations of the basics and nurture the future of the team after we graduate with utmost passion and perseverance.

This month has seen a lot of peaks and valleys. What each one of us have imbibed is the fact that no matter what the team is the only thing that can make or break the day. The members of are dependent to function harmoniously in the right way. There have been days we just break down, we get perplexed, we wonder what tomorrow might give us. At that instant, a little change in attitude saves the soul a sleepless night. Our Payment Gateway will soon be online on our website.

ALL OF YOU OUT THERE, YOUR CONTRIBUTION MATTERS !

YOUR SUPPORT WILL TAKE US A STEP CLOSER TO OUR DREAM

AND

WILL TAKE YOU A STEP FORWARD IN “FIGHTING THE GLOBAL ENERGY CRISIS.”
