The “Yes You Can” team of 22 students of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Daffodil International University innovated the ‘Solar Car’. The young and talented students (‘Yes You Can’ Team) came up with an exceptional and outstanding project concept called "Solar Car" (7' long X 4' wide) for this green technology time of the earth. This is a complete and actual sized two seated solar car powered by the green technologies.
This Car weight is 150 KG that could carry two-three person’s weight. It has 5 Solar panels with each 12 Volts in total 48 Volts with (50Watt x 4) + 80Watt = 280 Watt (in total); 4 pieces 12Watt Batteries in total 48Volts; one Solar Charge Controller; one high capacity Motor which 500rpm, 500Watt, 48Volts; one Motor Controller; along with associated parts and materials. In full charge state, this car is capable to run with two persons for 6 (six) hours at a time. The speed level of this car is 45km/hour. This car is fully solar car, charged from solar panel and need not any other supporting fuels. The future of this solar car is very prospective; it could reduce electricity consumptions where in most of districts in Bangladesh, lots of electricity motor vehicles are running on roads that used to charges from direct electricity connections. It also reduces the pressure of fuels and Gas used by different vehicles e.g. Oil, Mobil, Octane, Diesel, Petrol.
DIU Solar Car had received “Future Award” in the Asia's largest Solar technology event: ESVC - Electric Solar Vehicle Championship 2014-2015, organized by Imperial Society of Innovative Engineers (ISIE) which had been held at Maharishi Markandeshwar University ( MMU) Haryana, India; in 2015. This project was jointly sponsored and funded by ICT Division, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh and Daffodil International University.
