A global analysis of solar car performance
Do you want to test your team's newly built solar car against other cars globally? Do you want access to an abundance of raw solar car data to analyse, compare and interpret?
The 2021 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge Telemetry Challenge has been designed to allow for driving, testing and comparison of solar cars in the absence of a physical Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.
The telemetry challenge will also allow teams and the wider community to engage with submitted solar car data, practicing and experimenting with analysis methods and presentation. This challenge provides a rare opportunity for solar car enthusiasts to receive access to exclusive solar car data.
The success of the Telemetry Challenge and its method for data collection will be considered for potential future Bridgestone World Solar Challenge applications.
Registered teams are invited to submit data collected via the driving of their solar cars within specific sessions, which will be viewed and accessed by registered Analysts. Analysts will be invited to assess, display, and comment on the data and its subsets for the sake of global knowledge sharing and scientific investigation.
The data submission period will be open for two months, and practice analysis will take place over a period of one month ahead of a live simultaneous playback of all submitted data for comparison and concurrent analysis over a period of two days.
