The Jugad System was part of my thesis project for my CCS MFA program. Duration was from 2010-2011. I did primary discovery research in Maharashtra, India in Dec 2010 and Jan 2011. I finished the seen concept in May 2011. I went back to India in 2015 to do validation research and co-design work on the concept.
The vehicle system is designed to aid the underprivileged farmers in India out of their current economic state. It can be self constructed, allowing the farmer to add parts on the Jugad Vehicle System at their pace, helping the farmer gain more income from it utilitarian use.
