TFP supporting CUER in solar powered vehicle development
As part of the latter initiative we have been working with the team at Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) to support their development of a solar powered vehicle for this year's World Solar Challenge (WSC). This is the world's foremost solar endurance event and will be held in Australia on 6 October 2013.
CUER is a 60 strong student organisation and the UK's number one for solar vehicle development. They design, build and race solar powered vehicles and are the UK's only entry for WSC with a world leading 'Resolution' solar car design which stands a good chance of success at this year's event thanks to it's pioneering new sun-tracking design.
TFP have been working with the team during the latter stages of this project to help provide a solution to eliminate internal electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems. Our range of metal coated veils and mats provide effective EMI shielding as well as electrical conductivity at very light weights, and our technology team have been working with engineers at CUER to evaluate these materials and identify the most effective solution for their vehicle.
