Eco Motion Team by ESSTIN

10 septembre 2013

From self-propelling to eco-mobility

It’s our concept !

  • Who are we and what do we do?

We are a team of 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th year students from the french engineering school ESSTIN, supervised by a team of teachers. The team works out how to build vehicle which will run 10 laps (10,1 miles) in a given time consuming less energy as possible.

We have taken part in the Shell Eco Marathon challenge for about 15 years now !

  • Our vehicle

For the 3rd year we develop Vir’Volt, the prototype designed by the team in 2010-2011. It’s a vehicule which runs by lithium polymer electric battery. This year we add solar panels too because we run in « Electric and solar prototype » category. The team is also working to design a fuel cell which will entirely produced in ESSTIN.Tests

  • The 2013/2014th team

This year, the team is formed by 27 students supervised by 9 teachers. The team is devided in 4 parts : mechanic, electronic/informatic, energy/strategy and communication.
Our experience and our previous performances push us to aim to validate a new performance this year with our prototype and to increase the visibility of our researches.Equipe_2013-2014
