The product has been developed by three students from the University's Faculty of Architecture-Huma Pervez, Faiza Jamal and Faraz Khan. The university is now planning to test the cart in its premises and then work on its commercial viability.

For now, the cart will be used by our canteen people for selling food in streets inside the university campus.We will then see if there are any flaws that need to me removed and further work on its commercial viability, Thomas said.
