Abstract

Presentation location: Reed Hall of Science Room 214

Our team is designing a system that will be placed on the back of a Basic Utility Vehicle for milk transportation purposes in Rwanda. The system allow for the milk to be cooled in transit to reduce the amount of milk that is spoiled during the transportation process.

**********

A need for a transport system has been identified by top leaders in Rwanda. The focus is on the transport of milk since milk spoilage is a large problem there. This solution is focused on small-holder farmers in rural areas. The Basic Utility Vehicle (BUV) needs to carry 14 stainless steel milk cans (50L size) in the back of the BUV, protected from the sun. The project is to continue the work performed by the 19-20 team. This year’s team should continue to develop and prototype the appropriate cargo bed to carry and insulate the milk cans as well as tools and rescue equipment. The team will design and prototype a cost effective, safe, and durable solution.

Finish the 2020 Milk Transporter project. Deliverables: A painted prototype, testing data, engineering drawings, suggestions of further refinements. We will send the highlights of this project to the Minister of Agriculture or Rwanda.
