Flir thermal imaging camera employed by students in solar car development

A group of 16 students from two universities planned to apply the techniques of thermal imaging in the development of a solar car for participating in the World Solar Challenge in Australia. This test was intended to confirm that specifications set in the regulations have been met.

The brake of the solar car was tested by using a thermal imaging camera to measure the increasing heat of the brake discs at different speeds. An inspection was also carried out on the engine of the solar car using the same camera. With the help of the camera, they tested the electronics of the car to identify parts that consumed more power and to assess whether they could be replaced or modified.
