JOSEPH CUGNOT

Joseph Cugnot, French inventor

Joseph Cugnot was a French military engineer who was born in1725 inVoid-Vacon (it is in the northeast of France) and died in1804 inParis. He studied mostly military inventions.

The invention :

Between 1769 and 1771, Joseph Cugnot invented  the first motor vehicle (the first car). At the beginning, he built it to move heavy artillery. His invention meets many problems (it goes into a wall…) this is why, later he stops working in the military domain and he continues his searches alone till his death. He didn’t get any award for his invention but his work stays in the memory of everybody.

My opinion :

The car evolves from day to day and now it is our main mode of transportation. Without cars, we couldn’t move on long distances. I believe his invention is an enormous progress for the humankind. To finish, I think that his invention changed the world and eased people to move

the first self-propelled vehicle
