Anton Couzens

The purpose of the telemetry system is to transmit the solar car's technical status to a laptop based in the accompanying vehicle through a wireless link, based on a PIC development board connected to an Xbee device. The project includes the design of the communication link as well as the graphical user interface (code written using VB Express).
