Human-powered transport is often the only type available in underdeveloped or inaccessible parts of the world, and if well designed, can be an increasingly viable form of sustainable transportation.

ASME's international Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate the application of sound engineering design principles in the development of sustainable and practical transportation alternatives.In the HPVC, students work in teams to design and build efficient, highly engineered vehicles for everyday use—from commuting to work, to carrying goods to market.

ASME's Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) is an engineering design and innovation competition that gives students the opportunity to network and apply engineering principles through the design, fabrication, and racing of human powered vehicles.

The first HPVC competition was in 1983 at the University of California, Davis and was won by California State University, Chico.

ASME and the ASME HPVC Committee will host an independent worldwide competition in 2022: Critical Design Review competition (online/digital) comprising a combined Design and Innovation event. Students are encouraged to participate in both design and innovation, and scores from both these events will be combined to determine the overall winners of the CDR competition. There will also be an award for best innovation.

Designs are evaluated based on their submitted report and the performance of the technical innovation.
This competition has not yet listed it's awards.
