The University of Toronto’s Blue Sky Solar Racing team chose the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform to design and build its seventh-generation solar vehicle in just two years.

The Challenge

The University of Toronto’s Blue Sky Solar Racing team needed to design and build its seventh-generation solar vehicle in just two years to compete in the World Solar Challenge’s 2013 race across the Australian continent.

Dassault Systèmes Response

The student-led team chose Dassault Systèmes’ the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform for Academia, using CATIA for virtual product design, DELMIA for digital manufacturing and SIMULIA for realistic simulation, to develop and manufacture their state-of-the-art, solar-electric vehicle.

Benefits

The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform helped the team improve work flow, significantly reducing development and production time into a tight thirteen-month cycle. The suite of server-based tools improved collaboration, integration of major car systems, and visualization and virtual testing of design concepts.
