Chalmers Solar Team
Sponsor Wenell visited and sat in this fantastic car on May 28 at Chalmers, Gothenburg.
“After a year of hard work was it finally time for the reveal event. This was the first time we displayed the solar car to the public eye.
To bring focus to the different parts of the car and the working process, we chose to have the car disassembled on the event. This was mainly to let the sponsors and visitors be able to choose freely what they wanted to see, hear and learn more about.
The body of the car, made of carbon fiber, stood in the middle of the room. Outdoors visitors could see the chassis, where anyone who wanted could sit in the driver’s seat and get a feel for the solar car. Anyone could also see the battery and its layout, some tests of solar panels connected to a multimeter, the logistics plan, control system, and our telemetry solution.
We’ve just passed a huge milestone, but we are not done yet. We need to install our brake system and gas pedal, install all the solar panels, paint the car and of course put everything together. Flight tickets are to be booked next week, all of us are really excited and looking forward going to Australia and participate in The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge this fall! ”
