The team also forms an essential part of the team’s internal communication and also helps to ensure team integration, both between sub-teams and between team members. The team is split into several smaller teams and positions which work together closely to ensure the smooth running of the project.

The Australian National University’s Sol Invictus team will compete for the first time in 2017, and we are keen to set up a team that will push the boundaries of what is possible.

The Technical Team is directly responsible for the design, construction and testing of the solar powered electric vehicle (EV). This includes in-house design as well as collaborating with industry partners to gain professional insight and advice for the EV. The Technical Team is divided into five sub-teams; chassis, drive, power, control, aerodynamics and systems.
