Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2017

OnlineWorld-Solar-Challenge-2017-Australia-Punch-Powertrain-Solar-Team- — The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is one of the most popular competitions for solar vehicles in the world.

The spectacular race took place in mid-October and encompassed 3,000 kilometres across Australia. With the help of the Lufft WS504 intelligent weather sensor, the Belgian Punch Powertrain Solar Team finished in the top three.

“The Australian solar race is among the most challenging in the world and we are very pleased to be able to support the Punch Powertrain Solar Team again,” says Tobias Weil, Lufft Marketing Director. “We congratulate the entire team on an amazing third-place finish.“

Knowing how to deal with the given weather conditions is a significant factor in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, which can determine victory or defeat.

By using the compact WS504 all-in-one weather sensor from Lufft, the Punch Powertrain Solar Team had data from a total of six measurement parameters such as temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind direction, wind speed, and radiation available.
