Qoros and Mazak Join the Adventure

With plans for a new vehicle to compete at the top end of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2017 well under way, we are incredibly pleased to announce our latest two high-level sponsors: Qoros and Yamazaki Mazak. 

Cantab Capital Partners #SponsorMonday

This week, we are very pleased to announce our latest sponsor to claim their space on the 2017 race vehicle and show their support of our team: Cantab Capital Partners. 

The Cambridge Circuit Company #SponsorMonday

The Electronics Hardware is one of the key elements of the solar car design concept which spans from driver controls (in figuring out the most relevant data to convey to the driver), to the electric drivetrain needed to propel the car from the north to the south coast of Australia, a distance of about 3000km.
 

Summer Design Team Conclusion

It has been 10 weeks of intense work and a steep learning curve for many of the students, but the 2016 Summer Design Team has been an undeniable success. Thank you to all the students for all their hard work and to our sponsors, supporters and alumni for their involvement so far in making our 2017 racing vehicle the best we have ever produced. 

Rockfort Engineering #SponsorMonday

Systems Integration: One of the things I love about the CUER cars is that they bring a lot of engineering disciplines together: mechanical, electrical, structural, aeronautical. And with so many people working on designing their own part of the car in the Summer Design Team, it’s important to make sure that the final pieces of each project fit together. It’s no good having a brilliant aerodynamic shape if it turns out it’s too narrow for the wheels to turn, or for us to build the chassis only to realise the battery pack doesn’t fit. 

European Solar Challenge

It is with great delight that we are announcing our participation in the upcoming European Solar Challenge in September. The event will be a 24 hour track race at the Zolder Circuit in Belgium. 

Wheels with Dassault Systèmes #SponsorMonday

The wheel design project for the Summer Design Team 2016 is looking at producing more lightweight and aerodynamically efficient wheels for our next generation vehicle. Having used the same wheels for the previous two World Solar Challenges, it's time for an upgrade! 

Redbourn Group #SponsorMonday

The array design project is all about responding to one of the key changes in the regulations of the World Solar Challenge. In 2017, only the exiting driver will be allowed to touch the car to set it up for control stops, and only the incoming driver will be able to set it up for driving again. 

Dassault Systèmes #SponsorMonday

In the Summer Design Team, David is leading the chassis design using software tools from Dassault Systèmes. Dassault Systèmes support our team with software packages Solidworks, Catia and Abaqus. These packages are invaluable to the team for design, analysis and manufacture. 

Airgain #SponsorMonday

This summer, as part of the Summer Design Team, Aleksandr Bogomil, will be undertaking a project on our Telemetry and Strategy systems thanks to the support of Airgain. A leading provider of high-performance embedded antenna technology, integration support, and test services for the wireless communications market, Airgain brings over 10 years of experience in performance optimisation of wireless systems to the project. 

Signing Off: A Year At The Helm

If there is one thing I can say for certain about this year, it’s that there has not been a single dull moment in the 12 months I have been Programme Director of CUER. 

BWSC 2017: The Switch-up

One week on from regulations and CUER is in full flow, excited by the new possibilities for BWSC 2017. As ever, new regulations have brought on new challenges but the enthusiasm, as we approach our 10 week design phase, massively outweighs any trepidation of problems yet to be overcome. 

WSC 2017 Anticipation

Eight months has flown by since Evolution broke the Cambridge record in crossing the Australian Outback, and now it’s time to find out what the next World Solar Challenge will have in store! 

The Next Generation

As the academic year draws to a close, we look ahead to the next generation who will take up the challenge of designing and building a solar powered car to cross the Australian Outback. We have seen some very promising students join the team this year, from first year undergraduates all the way through to PhD candidates, which is very exciting for the future of CUER.
