Doraemon’s props come true, solar car can travel 1051 kilometers in 12 hours

Whether it was before or now, all kinds of novelty props are one of the reasons why countless people are attracted to Doraemon, and they always hold the fantasy that these props can come true. The random door or the time machine may not be able to do it now, but this prop has really appeared in real life.

In the series of animations adapted from the comic "Doraemon", the movie "Doraemon: Nobita and the Kingdom of the Cloud" must be impressed by many people, who can build their own kingdom on the cloud, who doesn't want this !

In the movie, when Nobita and Shizuka went to visit the built kingdom, each of them drove a solar car that Doraemon took out.

It is also mentioned in the Doraemon movie that solar cars do not require fuel, pollute the air, and have no noise. Not only animations, but also for people who need to vigorously develop clean energy in the real world today.

In fact, many solar cars have appeared today. Not only that, the solar racing car built by the Belgian Agora solar team also broke the world record, driving the BluePoint Atlas to drive 1051 kilometers in 12 hours.

The car, which surpassed the 924km record held by the Dutch solar team since 2020, is the ninth solar car built by the Belgian Agora solar team.

This team of Belgian engineering students, with the most innovative and efficient solar cars, has made the team the current European and World Champions after winning races in Chile, Australia and Belgium.

At 7:31am, the Agora Solar team, with the BluePoint Atlas, embarked on a record-setting attempt on the closed test track at the Ford Lommel automotive proving ground in Belgium.

After 305 kilometers, there was a situation that could disrupt the schedule, and the clouds that started to build up could have an impact on the BluePoint Atlas, which is powered directly by the sun. After 5 hours and 45 minutes of driving, the solar car has covered 549 kilometers.

After driving 700 kilometers on the BluePoint Atlas, the car suddenly had a flat tire. So the team decided to accelerate to 95 kilometers per hour to make up for the lost time. With an hour and a half left, the team broke through the 924-kilometer mark and finally beat the previous record with 1,051 kilometers.

Aside from a flat tire, the solar car had no other major problems, which speaks to its reliability. To this end, the team also stated that they are fully prepared for the Sasol Solar Challenge, which will be held in South Africa from September 9th to 16th.

Not only the Belgian team taking part in this unique challenge for the first time, but also student teams from all over the world will be challenged there, with different solar cars driving as much solar power as possible over 8 days. It was by far the longest race the Belgian team has participated in, and both the reliability of the car and the strategy of the team are important.

Although there is still some distance from a solar car that can travel without fuel and charging, such as the Aptera solar car that Aptera Motors plans to put into production this year is actually a hybrid car, which can travel 1000 miles (about 1609 kilometers) on a single charge, but solar energy The panels can also provide about an additional 40 miles of driving per day at 700 watts of continuous charging power.

However, these solar vehicles, including BluePoint Atlas, also use their achievements to show that this idea is feasible. If the current technical difficulties can be overcome, maybe people in the future can also drive like Doraemon. Hanging out in a solar powered car.
