Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra shared a video of an e-rickshaw driver who modified his vehicle so that passengers don’t come in physical contact with each other. “We need to get him as an advisor to our R&D and product development teams!” Mahindra tweeted, tagging a company executive. In the video, a man is heard calling the design “corona innovation”.
The capabilities of our people to rapidly innovate & adapt to new circumstances never ceases to amaze me. @rajesh664 we need to get him as an advisor to our R&D & product development teams! pic.twitter.com/ssFZUyvMr9

As can be seen in the video, which seems to be of an electric-rickshaw, the operator of the vehicle sits alone. It is behind him where the entire vehicle has been segregated into small cabins removing the possibility of people coming in physical contact with those who are seated beside them, or even around them for that matter.
