Team Ambush is a group of students striving to bring change in the agriculture domain. We are the group of undergraduate students from diverse streams studying at Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering, Pune with an aim to design, conceptualize, fabricate, test a Self-propelled Onion Harvester. We are team with an ideology and goal to “Innovate, Design & Bring Mechanization in the field of Agriculture in India”.

After the design and manufacturing process, we participate in National level competition SAE TIFAN (Technology Innovation forum for Agricultural Nurturing) organized by SAE INDIA with other college teams from around the India. We also exhibit the prototype at exhibitions with the aim of interacting with the farmers, to make a survey of the challenges faced by the farming community and to develop industrial contacts.

The team was founded in 2017 and has made 3 Self-propelled Onion harvesting prototypes. Putting our theoretical knowledge into test practically to achieve Breakthrough Innovations and learning from past performances and besting ourselves is what keeps us motivated to perform better in the future.
