During our trip through the Australian outback, we don't want to leave anything to chance. For that reason, our solar car is equipped with a large number of sensors. We do not only measure things like the vehicle's velocity or the battery voltage, but also less obvious values such as the temperature of our solar cells.   All measurement values are wirelessly sent to one of our escort vehicles using a self-designed telemetry system. The transmitted sensor values are automatically preprocess ...
The special task of designing a chassis for a solar car  When it comes to building a solar car, of course, one important part is the design of the chassis. It does not only establish the contact between the road and the car itself but it is also essential for the efficiency of the whole car. With that in mind, we started our design process from scratch more than a year ago and this is how we came up with our final design.   The very special use-case of a 3.000 km race through the outb ...
