EEE Poster - Propulsion of solar-powered cars

Desciption
We have used advanced magnetic materials to research a lightweight motor which sits inside the front wheels of solar-powered vehicles. The motor, produced in collaboration with CSIRO, Australia, acheives 98.5% efficiency - the best solar car racing. It has been sold to competitors from seven different nations and is shown here in the Aurora car, which won the Darwin to Adelaide World Solar Challenge.
