A diy solar-thermal-powered car in sunny La Paz
Alexander Carl is a Canadian engineer designing and building one of the world’s first diy solar thermal powered car in sunny La Paz in Mexico. He contacted us through Arduino Facebook page to show us his project developed using Arduino Mega to sun track the 24 x 6 foot curved mirror, to sense the temperature and pump hot oil and many other things. You can find a lot of pictures on the project page on Facebook.
He’s got over 30 videos on Youtube, documenting the work in progress of this project. Here’s the video of the test model:
