UCL HyperMile Competes in Shell Eco-Marathon

31 May 2024

Benefiting from TorqSense transducer devices from Sensor Technology, along with engineering advice supplied by maxon, the University College London (UCL) HyperMile racing team successfully participated in the Shell Eco-Marathon last week.

With internal combustion engine (ICE), hydrogen fuel cell and battery-electric categories, this annual contest sees teams from across Europe design, construct, test and then race energy-efficient vehicles. This year it was held at the Circuit Paul  Armagnac, in Nogaro, France. By using TorqSense rotary torque transducers, the UCL HyperMile team members have been able to develop an advanced powertrain. This delivers augmented operational performance, while making the most of fuel reserves.

"We are thrilled to unveil our latest innovation in collaboration with Sensor Technology," states Bartol Vahcic, Technical Director at UCL HyperMile. "By integrating the TorqSense transducer into testing our powertrain system, we are confident that we can push the boundaries of eco-racing and set new benchmarks for sustainability and performance."
