The Mechanical Team is responsible for the physical design and contstruction of the structural parts of the car. Mechanical members use 3D computer modeling tools to help design components and analyze the forces on each part. We take safety very seriously. The end result is a lightweight car which is structurally sound and capable of withstanding whatever the road throws at us.
The chassis team designs and welds the metal frame which provides the main structural skeleton of the car. This team ensures the driver is safe under any collision.
The shell team designs the outer aerodynamic carapace made out of composite materials. The team improves the efficiency of the solar vehcle by minimizing energy loss due to drag forces.
The controls team designs the driver interface for the car, including elements such as the dashboard and brakes. This team ensures that the car is easy and intuitive to drive.
The suspension team is responsible for the wheels, steering and suspension. The car must give a smooth and efficient ride.
