For the last five years, starting 2014, Auto Tech Review has been conducting a competition among engineering students in the country as part of its annual awards programme – the Indian Automotive Technology and Innovation Awards (IATIA). The Student Innovator of the Year (SIoY) contest has attracted participation from students across the country representing premiere institutions, including IITs and NITs.
This year, Auto Tech Review has expanded the scope of its student-related initiatives and will set-up and manage an exclusive “Student Pavilion” at the upcoming NuGen Mobility Summit 2019 organised by the International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT) on November 27-29, 2019.
The key features of the Student Pavilion include the following:
The Student Innovator of the Year (SIoY) was conceived as one of the categories in the Indian Automotive technology and Innovation Awards (IATIA), the annual awards instituted by Auto Tech Review in 2014 to recognise and honour excellence in automotive engineering, technology and innovation.
The SIoY was instituted as a platform for the industry and academia to come together, interact and benefit mutually. The aim of the initiative was to encourage young engineering student to bring fresh new thoughts to the automotive industry through innovative products, processes or systems that the industry could make use of. The SIoY aims not just to encourage young minds, but also to find and offer solutions to the industry. The objective is to assist the industry find and build a talent pool of innovators.
In the past few years, IATIA developed this category into an innovation challenge among engineering students. Undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate engineering students were invited to find innovative solutions in the areas of vehicle light weighting; electric & hydraulicbrid propulsion systems; infotainment systems, HMI & connectivity and future mobility and transportation.
The SIoY would become a standalone competition for engineering and design students on automotive engineering, technology development and innovation showcase across products, processes or systems.

Recognition & Awards
BITS PILANI KK BIRLA GOA CAMPUS
Design optimization of automobile crash box
SCMS SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
Variable Intensity Brake Lighting
SRM University, Chennai (Nishta Sen, Chakshu Ishan Kaplas, Nishant Saha) – Web Mining and Artificial Intelligence-based Infotainment
The purpose of this technology is to enable the use of a mobile application as an interface for human-vehicle communication, for increasing safety and allowing the vehicle to customise infotainment options based on the user’s personal preferences, which remain stored on the Web.
Manav Rachna International University, Faridabad (Chirag Malhotra, Rais Raja, Garvit Dudeja) – Technologies for Safer, More Efficient Electric Vehicles
The team from MRIU has designed a host of safety technologies for electric cars and have tried to make EVs more efficient via solar charging of the batteries. They have also designed a smart controller for the battery pack, which extracts the least possible power, depending on load.
NSS College of Engineering, Palakkad (Suryan Kumar, Arjun Ramesh, Ananthan) – Turbo Lag Removal and Turbocharging of Single Cylinder Engines
To deal with increasingly stringent emissions norms, Suryan, Arjun and Ananthan, from the NSS College of Engineering, have designed an experimental turbocharger system for single-cylinder engines. This system is expected to help reduce emissions, boost performance and increase mileage, without compromising on power delivery and performance.
Auto Tech Review is India’s first & only automotive magazine with a core focus on technology. The magazine takes a 360-degree approach to automotive journalism, and disseminates knowledge and information on the sector through its initiatives in print, online, digital and events.
Reflecting our intent is our tagline - The Language of Technology, which is an essential reading tool for people across functions such as R&D, marketing and senior management. The magazine is also well-circulated among the academia, in line with our aim of bridging the gaps between them and the automotive industry. Be it passenger cars, commercial vehicles, two-wheelers, three-wheelers or suppliers – Auto Tech Review brings to the industry unmatched quality of technology knowledge on anything automotive.
Launched in January 2012, Auto Tech Review has fast become an essential source of information for readers not just in India, but across many countries in the world, delivered monthly.
Auto Tech Review is published by Springer Nature, one of the world’s largest academic book publisher, publisher of the world’s most influential journals and a pioneer in the field of open research.
Springer Nature has a workforce of more than 13,000 highly qualified and committed professionals, working in more than 50 countries.
Springer Nature was formed in 2015 through the merger of Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan, Macmillan Education and Springer Science+Business Media
