Battery Testing

Jeff Rogers and I have spent the past two days at BluWāv Systems conducting final tests with Continuum's battery pack. We were able to successfully characterize the entire battery pack and calibrate some of Continuum's electrical sensors using BluWāv's equipment. We also had the chance to tour their facility. Below are two pictures from the trip:

Jeff and I sitting in BluWāv's Smart Roadster. The vehicle features in-wheel electric motors designed and built by BluWāv. If only it had solar cells...

Alex,

If future solar cars are going to look like the Blu-Wav car in your photo, sign me up! It looks like a car, rather than an experiment. The solar car project sure has come a long way, and from the looks of that photo, the future looks very promising!
