Abstract: The bi-annual World Solar Challenge held in Australia serves as an international platform for universities and companies around the world to foray into developing a sustainable solar car. The solar car has to travel across the Australian continent of 3000 kilometres in the shortest time possible. Thus, a telemetry system has to be commissioned to monitor the performance of the solar car. Important information such as battery voltage, currents, temperatures and speed has to be measured real-time for the team to develop a suitable race strategy. The data obtained will be transmitted wirelessly via a receiver to a computer in a chase vehicle following the solar car. The information obtained can then be logged into the computer and future references can then be made.
