High performance pedal prix vehicle

The efficiency of human powered vehicles relies on minimal energy and power wastage throughout operation.

The goal of this project is to design and construct a vehicle that has minimal energy wastage. Aerodynamic efficiency is the key focus for reduction in power loss. Computer models have been developed and tested to explore high efficiency shapes. Scale physical model tests used to validate results. A final design able to challenge benchmark designs was produced, with on track testing taking place as a final validation.
