‘Good Vibrations’, a team of Pembroke entrepreneurs have won a global engineering challenge with their device to guage vehicle loads for safe disaster relief. The Institute of Engineering and Technology Global Challenge encourages young engineers to develop solutions for real-world challenges. This year the challenge was to develop an on-board device to enable drivers to visually identify whether their vehicle is safely loaded. NGOs and disaster relief organisations often work off-road, and there can be serious consequences from overloaded vehicles. The winning entry is named ‘Weigh2Go’ and analyses the vibrational response of the car to a known input force.
