Solar Car Racing Game
A solar car is a vehicle which is fueled by the sun's energy. Photovoltaic cells in solar panels on the surface of the car convert the sun's energy into electricity. This electricity is then used to run the battery that powers the car's motor or to power the motor directly. Most solar cars are developed for the purposes of racing, due to the present challenges and limitations of using solar energy as a reliable source of vehicular power.
In this challenge you will virtually design and race a solar car.
- Select components of your solar car such as the body, battery and tires to optimize performance.
