JVCKENWOOD Provides Radio Systems to Team Sonnenwagen Aachen of RWTH Aachen University, Germany, Competing in Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2023.
JVCKENWOOD Deutschland GmbH (JKDE), a German sales company of the JVCKENWOOD Group, announces that it has provided radio and other equipment to Team Sonnenwagen Aachen of RWTH Aachen University, Germany. The team competed in the Challenger Class of Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2023, the world’s premier solar car race, which took place from October 22 to 29, traversing approximately 3,000 km across the Australian continent over nearly five days.
JKDE began providing radio and video equipment in 2019 upon a support request from Team Sonnenwagen Aachen when it was competing for the second time at the time. In the latest third challenge, the NX-1000 Series radios and 4K video cameras were provided. In advance of the competition, JKDE offered equipment from the test run stage conducted in Germany and also provided support for setting up and operating radio equipment in Australia, where the race is held, in cooperation with JVCKENWOOD Australia Pty, Ltd., the JVCKENWOOD Group’s Australian sales company.
In the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, a variety of solar cars, which are developed by young engineers from around the world, compete with each other. Since the development of solar cars requires knowledge in various fields of science, such as aerodynamics, electrical engineering, and electronic engineering, it has been attracting worldwide attention as an opportunity to train engineers across boundaries. The JVCKENWOOD Group agrees with the aim of developing young engineers who will create the future, and supports the EV race honoring the sustainable nature of solar cars.
