Through the SAE MobilityForward Challenge universities will think critically about emerging technology issues relevant to the micromobility industry. Teams of university students will design an electric, personally owned micromobility vehicle solution for practical everyday use. It will accommodate up to two riders and have enough space for cargo option – essentially an electric micromobility vehicle that two people can take for an errand run. Immersed in SAE International’s WCX™ SAE WORLD CONGRESS EXPERIENCE conference, universities will present their solution in various ways including a technical design presentation and a showcase booth on SAE International’s WCX SAE WORLD CONGRESS EXPERIENCE show floor.
The SAE MobilityForward Challenge is a student engineering design competition in the SAE Emerging Technology Series, which provides an opportunity for students to think critically about current and future emerging technologies in the mobility engineering industry. Each program within the SAE Emerging Technology Series challenges universities to create a team of multi-disciplinary engineers to collaborate, design, present, and defend conceptual designs to industry professionals.
Additional information can be found in the 2021 SAE MobilityForward Challenge™ ruleset.
