Personal Mover - Mitra[edit]

Subhav Sinha has developed the Personalised Mover - Mitra. This vehicle is self balanced and has both stand and sit provisions for a single person. Its unique alignment of wheels gives the vehicle additional stability by controlling the position of centre of gravity, and prevents the person from falling while accelerating, braking or during sharp turns. Being battery operated, this vehicle is eco friendly [6][11] as it does not emit any effluents and consumes less energy compared to existing petrol and diesel vehicles. It will greatly help in accumulating carbon credits in future. Mitra, takes in a space of around a person and can be useful in reducing the traffic congestion

The vehicle can be of great use at places like big factories, warehouses, trade fairs, airport, apartments, etc. where excessive walking is required. Besides, with the self-balancing mechanism adding to sitting provision, it can be of great use for elders and handicapped people as well.

The vehicle has been covered by leading daily locals like Hindu,[12] Deccan Chronicle,[13] Hindustan Times, Dainik Bhaskar, etc.
