The BPPC technology, also known as Burst Prevention and Puncture Curative technology is invented by ‘TycheeJuno’ project. TycheeJuno is an organization working on disruptive and burst through innovation mostly related to automotive unit. The project leader is Sameer Panda, an engineer from Odisha. Mr. Sameer has completed Masters in Business Law from National Law School Bangalore, and is now pursuing PhD from VSS University of Technology in Odisha’s Sambalpur district.
The technology to prevent tyre and tube puncturing got recognition, in the form of award in ‘Create Future Design Contest` -2015organized by NASA Tech Brief in New York. Tech Brief is a contest organized by NASA and Society of Automobile Engineers. The technology is a multi chambered tubeless tire with sealant inside the chamber to deal with the puncture. The technology takes care of major problems like, leakage, rubber hardening, weakening of sealant, problem in wheel balancing etc.
The best thing about ‘Mild Run Flat Tyre’ is to increase the fuel efficiency. The MRF tyre can be manufactured with existing technology, so no cost investment is involved for new technology. According to the facts and figures, if this technology is used in 10 million vehicles, carbon dioxide emission due to tyre replacement can be reduced up to 200,000 tons annually. This will also lead to saving 200 million gallons of gasoline consumption. This is indeed an innovation to reduce the environmental impact and a step to save it.
About the innovation, Sameer Panda says,” It has clocked more than 40,000 hours in last more than a decade in inventing the technology that can be manufactured in existing manufacturing set-up and can also be retrofitted in any tubeless, self-supported or auxiliary supported tire.” The time investment, dedication and determination Mr. Panda and his teammates has shown, certainly proved out to be fruitful.
