Harrison Bennett Joseph Thekkekkara Joshua LazaroJordan BoyleCreative Journey: Windshield Wiper System

1

Introduction

EVX's ultimate vision is to make self powering cars the future of transportation.Windscreen Wiper System has not yet been created that is aerodynamic enough to contribute to an overall coefficient of drag < 0.21.

2

Explain what coefficient of drag is and its importance to a solar vehicle.Drag coefficient is RESISTANCE of an object in fluidic environment.2

Project Overview and ObjectivesCreate a windshield wiper system:Mounted onto the EVX Immortus vehicle and ready for use.Meets Australian Design RequirementsAerodynamically efficient (contribute to a cd < 0.21)Taking into consideration the actuator (weight, complexity, power consumption)

Approach

Research:

The history of the windscreen wiper. Why is a windscreen wiper needed?. Aerodynamics basics.Different kinds of Windscreen wiper, how people have approached clearing a windscreen.

4

Approach: Provide a brief description of the approach in your project, including necessary details on the relevant methods, theory, experimental processes and setups, and/or validation techniques.4

Why are Windscreen Wipers Needed?
