UCI Solar Car Project

Goal and Objectives

This year, the team is dedicated towards continuing too manufacture a car that will be powered by battery in order to compete our first vehicle version. Once the car is manufactured and tested, we will be able to enhance certain features which will allow us to compete in American Solar Challenge (ASC), a race in which teams are expected to create a solar-powered car that can travel along predetermined routes such as Route 66 and the cross-country passage from Texas to Canada. Through this process, Solar Car not only strives to produce an efficient machine for a succesful run at the ASC, but also hopes to expand the innovation and utilization of renewable energy sources. 

As the Fall quarter progresses, students have continuously worked in lab to design, test and manufacture mechaniccal and eelectrical components needed for the developmnt of our vehicle!
