How many times has your team participated in the event?
The BWSC 2017 is the first ever solar car event Neul-Hae-Rang participate in. Since it is the first participation, there are some technical and operational deficiencies, and there is a considerable burden. However, we will do our best to fill these deficiencies, so that we can achieve our own goals.
What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?
‘Woong-bi’ has a uniform line and balance of upper and lower body, natural and free design. Also, as our team started with the hopes and challenges of young people, we believe that we can show not only the engineer's skills but also the design philosophy that has enthusiasm and hope for our future, at the BWSC, where people from all over the world gather.
What is unique about your solar car?
Through practical and concise design, Neul-Hae-Rang has demonstrated technical lighter weight. And By using dynamic and fluid flow, the driving performance of the car is improved. By getting a concept for luxurious ride and smooth ride, it became fashionable in harmony with design. To pay attention to the smallest part, we also handled cell cutting, tabbing, and laminating. By doing so, we were able to achieve the best efficiency close to the model we envisioned.
Why does your team value participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge?
This university is the only transportation specialization university in Korea and possesses the capacity to promote this project. As the school slogan "Connect the World," it will be a good experience to build confidence and global mindset for young people as they gain experience in this event. In addition, I believe that the students will be able to pioneer the way of employment and start-up, which is a social issue in Korea, by participating directly in the production of solar cars.
What is the one thing your team is looking forward to when you visit Australia?
The word 'first' always brings into a flutter. The majority of the team members are the first to experience from their Australian visit to their desert experience. It is anticipated that even if we imagine the solar car 'Woong-bi', a piece of work of us, that travel the dry desert.
