Partners 2019

The partners that help us create our dream

Platinum

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)

The TU/e, leading in sustainable development, educates science students to become engineers able to link technological innovation to societal needs. In 2012, Solar Team Eindhoven emerged from this vision. Since then, the TU/e has supported the development of the Stella Family and encourages the construction of a fourth solar car through knowledge, facilities, and collaboration. Solar Team Eindhoven's solar-powered family cars embody the TU/e's goal to bridge the gap between technological developments and their implementation in daily life.

Prodrive Technologies

Cleantron

Cleantron supports our team as the main partner in the field of engineering support and production of the battery pack. Just like with a standard electric car, the battery of our solar car is the part that provides everything with energy. Cleantron has many years of experience in making custom battery packs and the standardization of production processes. Thereby ensuring that the battery will be reliable, safe while delivering high-performance.

Gold

Neways Electronics

Like any modern family car, the new solar car is equipped with intelligent systems. The foundation for the optimal functioning of these systems are the printed circuit boards (PCB's), which are supplied by Neways Electronics. This way we guarantee that the car performs as it should in every situation.

Boerboom Hout

For each team, Boerboom Hout supplies the wooden molds that are required to realize the new design. Boerboom supports the team with specialist knowledge and flexibility. In addition, Boerboom works with our designers on concepts for a sustainable interior and a natural feeling in the car.

NXP

From the very start of Solar Team Eindhoven, NXP has been a household name. This year NXP again supports our team with state-of-the-art hardware and engineering support for our embedded systems and telematics. We are also working with NXP on our newest innovation to get the maximum out of solar energy!

Axians

For the third edition in a row, Axians is actively involved in Solar Team Eindhoven. Axians supports the team with the development of a data platform for data processing, analysis, and visualization of information about the new solar car. Together we build on the Solar Navigator and Solar Parking apps from the previous Stella’s with a cool feature that’s soon to be revealed!

AIIM

AI In Motion is a spin-off of the Eindhoven University of Technology. AIIM rethinks and redesigns possibilities by adding intelligence onto perception and localization to support autonomous vehicles and robots within challenging environments. Together with AIIM, we will be taking our first autonomous steps in the coming years towards optimizing the use of renewable energy in mobility.

Silver

Verum Software Tools

Cards PLM Solutions

Within the team of engineers that develops a specific component or system, they together work on an online 3D model. Siemens enables you to work on a model simultaneously while preserving individual modifications.

Bronze

ReQtest

In a large project like building a solar car, it is challenging to keep track of all the requirements that the different systems have to meet. Our team uses ReQtest software to keep overview. This way, the engineers always up-to-date and aware of the requirements and the relationships between them.

SNEP

In collaboration with SNEP we ensure that the story of Solar Team Eindhoven is widely spread. From photo books with memories of the previous Stella's to notable invitations for the presentation of the new car: SNEP thinks along and delivers high-quality print.

Versplaza Weijts fruit

We are dependent on sponsors not only for every component of the car, but also for the condition and performance of the team. Every monday morning, Versplaza Weijts brings a fair amount of fresh fruit by the office for the daily dose of vitamins and energy.

Delta Elektronika

University Racing Eindhoven

Just like us, our fellow students from University Racing Eindhoven put their knowledge into practice by joining a studentteam. The collaboration between the teams brings both of the projects to a higher level.

Nordcloud (Amazon Web Services)

Amazon Web Services, with support from Nordcloud, has made the process of simulating the aerodynamic properties of our design faster, easier and more reliable.
