Solar car racing

Tritium has been working with solar car racing technology for more than a decade and many of our customers over that time have built very competitive vehicles that have done well in solar car races all around the world.
Perhaps one of the most enduring solar car teams in Australia has been the Aurora Solar Car team which has competed in every World Solar Challenge and consistently places well in the competitive field. The team have also been a leader over the years in the evolution of solar car designs and performance improvements, and their latest vehicle looks to challenge the accepted definition of a solar car once again.

The components used by different teams in their cars can vary widely, however the CSIRO/Marand wheel motor has been around for more than a decade and seems to be a consistent choice for the drivetrain. Many teams using the WaveSculptor22 have paired it with this motor with good results.

Based on our experience with solar cars, Tritium has a number of solar car solutions for both the drivetrain as well as the user interface and control of the vehicle.
