Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge: Final Competition Moves to Iowa

Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge

The NFPA Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge is a workforce development program designed to support teams of undergraduate students (through a senior capstone design project or extracurricularly) as they develop a fluid powered vehicle without the use of chains or belts.

Nine teams are participating in the program — they join us from California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo, Cleveland State University, Illinois Institute of Technology, Murray State University, Purdue University, University of Akron, University of Cincinnati, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Western Michigan University.

All teams will converge in Ames, Iowa, April 20 – 21, 2017, for the final head-to-head competition.  The event will be hosted by Danfoss, a gold-level donor in the NFPA Foundation’s Pascal Society.  Danfoss is located at 2800 East 13th Street in Ames, Iowa.

The NFPA Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge is made possible through the generous support of our program sponsors, and through the Silver and Gold-level donors in the Pascal Society of the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation.
