What I think that is, is that ASME has competitions, where teams at different colleges will build HPV's and compete with them. Be aware that it is likely to be set up specifically for that event, and not for any other purpose. So if the competition is on flat land, it won't have gearing for hills. It likely isn't set up at all for rain, either. On the Battle Mountain HPV's, I think they have a very large turning radius, sort of like a rail dragster, intended for steering on a straight road, not for going around corners. And of course, no cargo room. May be built for one size rider. Rear visibility may be zero.
