HEIG-VD Communication division
A team of media engineering and management students from the HEIG-VD. It is in charge of managing Swiss Solar Boat’s external communication. Digital strategy, content production for social networks, goodies and website creation are a sample of the work carried out by this team.
Their role is to give visibility and make the project known to the outside world.
Pole formed by students who manage power electronics, including the design of batteries, their characterization, the development of solar panels, but also the design and dimensioning of the propulsion chain. This pole is also in charge of low-power electronics and embedded systems.
Their role is to optimise the energy supply and the implementation of all components to get the best performance from the boat in all weather conditions.
Pole made up of students working mainly on the designs of the different parts of the boat such as hulls, foils or propulsion.
Their role is to study the hydrodynamics of the boat and the flows in order to optimize the navigation of the boat in any situation.
Pole grouping together students who carry out structural studies of the boat as well as the follow-up of its production.
Their role is to ensure the integrity of the structure by studying each case that the boat could be confronted with and also to ensure the safety of the pilot in the event of a problem during navigation.
