Students will embark on a 3,000-kilometer road trip in “Solar House Vehicles.”

The TU Eindhoven Solar Team has built a number of highly efficient, solar-powered vehicles over the years to compete in the global solar challenges, and has now lifted the ceiling on the final design. The Stella Vita Camp is set to hit the 3,000-mile[3,000 km]route through Europe later this month.

Developed by a group of 22 strong students, the winding concept has been described as a kind of solar house on vehicles with 8 and 8.8 meters.2 (94 feet)2) For 60 kW. Solar arrays rotate up to 120 km / h (74.5 miles) on the roof of the Lion Battery Bank, but sliding panels can be removed for a total of 17.5 canoes. D2 (188 feet)2) When standing in a camp.

Thanks to additional folding panels, the solar array in the camp can be doubled

Not only that, the vehicle has a pop-up roof so the driver and passenger can sit comfortably in, cook or bathe in the kitchen – all of Stella Vita’s energy needs, including the electric drive system, are expected to be met only by the solar system, so on the go There is no need to rely on infrastructure.

In the house, the driver can monitor power statistics via a central display, and there is a portable Bluetooth speaker in the central console. In addition to the driver and passenger doors, the vehicle has two large opposite doors in the back of the house, which open the inside for light and air, and those folded panels can provide a little shade when sitting outside the camp.

It also has a compact kitchen block, Stella Vita interior integrated storage, small dining table, shelf and cabinet and L-shaped bench with sleeping area. There is also a mention of television and coffee making facilities, but nothing about the built-in toilet.

In bright sunlight, the solar group Eindhoven says the vehicle can travel up to 730 km (453.6 miles) per day, and the full-battery battery range can be seen up to 600 km (372.8 miles) at night.

To confirm the conceptual capabilities, team members are to begin a solar tour of Europe. Departing from Eindhoven in the Netherlands on September 19, the adventure will take you to Brussels via Zolder, where you will stay. Additional stops at the Park, Le Mans, dele de Ré, Bordeaux, Bearitz, Zaragoza, Madrid, Toledo and Córdoba are planned for a 3,000-kilometer (1,864 mile) journey in the southern city of Spain. , Tariff, October 15.
