This is a Boeing funded undergraduate research and design project that commenced in the 2015-2016 academic year. The aim of this project is to design an efficient and reliable solar powered vehicle capable of competing in international competitions. This is a state of the art challenge involving a multidisciplinary team of electrical, mechanical, software and industrial engineering students. Currently in its third year the project continues to develop the skills of the students in research, simulation, experimental design and prototyping, teamwork, and logistics amongst other HQP skills, and it helps them improve their understanding and grades in their courses. The team also aims to participate in the Formula Sun Grand Prix 2018 competition in the USA.
