Systems Engineering is of major importance for Solar Team Twente

Solar Team Twente is currently taking part in the World Solar Challenge in Darwin, Australia. This biannual race follows the Stuart Highway, a 3,000 kilometre road from Darwin in the north to Adelaide in the south. 42 teams from 24 countries are taking part in the race, in three different classes. Solar Team Twente is competing in the Challenger Class, the Formula 1 class for solar cars. The aim is to build a solar car that can complete the 3,000 kilometres as fast as possible.

Relatics is partner of Solar Team Twente

Relatics is a partner of Solar Team Twente. Together with Relatics, a number of information issues have been solved, with the support for the work in accordance with Systems Engineering being of the most value. During the design, all requirements for the solar car were recorded in Relatics, after which Relatics was used in the production phase to verify these requirements. The great advantage was that all data could be connected, so that retrieval and changes became very simple, without worries about version management.


RED Engine complies with stringent requirements

‘Thanks to Relatics, The RED Engine went into the scrutiny full of confidence and made a start full of confidence on 6 October. During the inspection, we were sure that the car complied with our stringent requirements, which a winning car has to meet!’
