Elithion's presence at this yearly contest of student built HEV race cars

back to top2010

The 2010 event included 3 cars with a Lithiumate:

  • The overall winner, Politecnico di Torino car; Elithion will confer an additional prize of $ 1000 to the team
  • The University of Vermont's AERO car, which scored 10th out of 19 full entrants
  • The Manitoba car, whose BMS (from one of Elithion's competitors) had failed, which we replaced on the spot with Lithiumate components donated by an Elithion client in Boston and a controller loaned by the Aero team

Elithion's Davide was tapped as one of design judges.

After seeing the disparity in understanding of Li-Ion BMS issues among the teams, Davide organized an improptu seminar on Li-Ion cells and BMSs, which was well attended, especially given the short notice and how busy the team members were at that time.
