Densitron Supports Stanford University at the 10th World Solar Challenge in Australia
The World Solar Challenge (www.wsc.org.au) is an annual pre-eminent solar car event held in Australia with the aim of supporting global research works towards a sustainable vehicle future. It is one of the world’s largest solar car races and starts in Darwin in the north of Australia and concludes 3012 kilometres later in Adelaide.
Densitron is pleased to have supported the Stanford University Team at the event. “The Stanford Solar Car is an exciting project and we are delighted to be of help to the team,” says Densitron’s Technical Director Elijah Ebo.

The team successfully integrated the 2.8” Active Matrix OLED (AMOLED) displays from Densitron into the design of their solar car, Apogee, with assistance from the company’s technical support engineers. The modules were used for the driver interface both in the build process for diagnostics and during the race.

One of the roles of the screens was to act as a rear view display to make the car more aerodynamic by not mounting a mirror.

“Thanks again for Densitron’s support. It was common agreement that the OLED screen was one of the best innovations in the car,” says Ben Stabler, Standford Solarcar.
