Agilent Equipment Used in Solar Car Design

Agilent is supplying instruments to a team of students at the University of Michigan to help them prepare for the World Solar Challenge, a 3,000-kilometer race among sun-powered vehicles.

The World Solar Challenge—the planet’s biggest competition for solar vehicles—runs Oct. 6-13. Each car must get 100 percent of its energy from the sun or from the kinetic energy of the vehicle.  This year’s race is expected to draw 47 teams from 26 countries.

Agilent is providing the University of Michigan team with a 200-MHz capacitive touch-screen oscilloscope as well as a handheld oscilloscope and a triple-output power supply to support the team’s engineering efforts, from design through competition.
