Western Sydney Solar Team is a multidisciplinary student led venture that designs, builds, and races solar powered vehicles in events around the globe.
Operating for over 10 years with four cars to date, success in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge and first place in the American Solar Challenge, the team has an ever-growing scope and wealth of knowledge.
The solar car team aims to stimulate conversation around sustainable solutions of the future and inspire the next generation of thinkers, with their solar powered vehicles as the main talking piece.
The alliance between ARDC allows the solar car team to test their vehicles and perform shakedowns in a controlled environment before taking to the public roads. Connecting with the AMIP would be the perfect extension of this relationship as it would further enhance the team’s capacity to network and innovate with like minded partners.
Transport technology is heading down a sustainable path and there is a critical need for development within Australia. The Western Sydney region stands at the forefront of advanced manufacturing and precision engineering, and the team truly believes the AMIP is essential.
Western Sydney Solar Team believes the AMIP will play and essential part in developing transport of the future. It will give Australia the chance it needs to
keep up with the rest of the world respective to innovations developed, jobs for our communities and critical education opportunities.
