We’re back from the wind tunnel! We headed up to Michigan over spring break to test the vehicle at the Ford Driveability Test Facility. During the tests, we validated all our CFD results, made small modifications and adjustments, and finally characterized the vehicle in a variety of situations. Here are a couple teasers of the vehicle; you’ll have to wait until the unveiling on April 12 for the full view.
In addition to testing the body, we are continuing development of the electrical system. In the next couple of weeks, we will wire the full array and get the basic system up and running before the unveiling.
The vehicle unveiling will occur April 12th from 4-6pm in Lobby 13 on campus! Check our blog for more details as we get closer to that date. The unveiling will feature a formal presentation from the team as well, and is open to the general public.
