Logo CANtouch Schein

The young engi­neers of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Delft want to bring a new world cham­pi­on title to Hol­land with their new solar racer NunaX. They have alre­a­dy suc­cee­ded seven times. The race will take place from 13 to 20 Octo­ber 2019 in Aus­tra­lia. 47 uni­ver­si­ties from all over the world com­pe­te against each other. The race track leads over 3000 km from Dar­win in the north to Ade­lai­de in the south of Down Under.

This year the team will be sup­port­ed by the use of a CAN­touch. Pie­ter Tols­ma, one of the deve­lo­p­ment engi­neers, uses the device to mini­mi­ze the pro­blems the teams had with the CAN in the past. During the race, he has the mea­su­ring device with him to be able to react quick­ly to any dif­fi­cul­ties that may ari­se. The pic­tures show him taking mea­su­re­ments on a test track in Aus­tra­lia, whe­re the indi­vi­du­al parts are assem­bled and the dri­vers can practice.

The GEMAC wis­hes the team good luck and a new world cham­pi­on title with NunaX!
