Rinstrum Goes Green on Wheels
Release date: 06 Sep 13
Our global MD, Darren Pearson (with some assistance from our R&D team) has been working nights on a project that doesn't weigh anything. Well actually it weighs around 200kg. Rinstrum is a foundation member of Team Arrow, a solar car racing team that will be competing in the Challenger Class in the World Solar Challenge in October that will race from Darwin to Adelaide, on solar power only. Rinstrum is working with Tritium, a specialised designer and supplier of powertrain systems for electric vehicles, to build the car's electrical system and the continuous communications to the chase car. The electrical system is built using our new LUA technology and CAN bus for communication within the car. We need to liaise between the battery monitoring system, solar array, indicators, brake lights and much more – and with LUA we have been able to do it all.
Keep an eye out for Team Arrow as it races down the centre in October. Also keep an eye out for our new LUA programmable indicator.
