The ‘Smart Cart’ is a fully functional solar cart that can generate electricity. The company will continue donating Smart Cart to the budding local vendors.”

The ATUM Smart Cart is not for commercialisation but is designed only for charity purpose. A regular cart fitted with ATUM generates 1 to 1.5 units a day and can power a light bulb, a fan and a mobile phone. It is weather resistant, eco-friendly and sustainable while providing a resting space for the vendor.
