Developing Indigenous EV Training Workbenches by Tadpole Projects with DIYguru

In a groundbreaking initiative, DIYguru and Tadpole Projects, incubated at IIT Delhi, developed three innovative training workbenches: the EV DriveTrain Experimental Setup & Motor Testing Workbench, the EV Electrical Circuit Training Workbench, and the Battery, BMS with CAN Protocols Training Workbench. Under the guidance of Dr. B.K. Panigrahi, these workbenches aim to enhance practical learning in EV technology for engineering and ITI/Diploma students across India, supported by AICTE and L&T Edutech. This collaboration bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills, preparing students for the evolving EV industry.



In a collaborative effort, DIYguru and Tadpole Projects, incubated at IIT Delhi, embarked on an ambitious project to develop three key training workbenches. This initiative was guided by Dr. B.K. Panigrahi, Professor and Founder Head of the Centre for Automotive Research and Tribology (CART) at IIT Delhi. The workbenches aimed to provide comprehensive training and hands-on experience in electric vehicle (EV) technology for students in engineering and ITI/Diploma colleges across India. This project is supported by NEAT AICTE and L&T Edutech, focusing on bridging the skills gap in the EV sector.


The primary objectives of this project is to:

  • Develop indigenous, cost-effective training workbenches for educational institutions.
  • Enhance practical learning and skill development in EV technology.
  • Foster innovation and readiness for the evolving EV industry among students.
