A team of researchers from the Department of Geographical Engineering, Geophysics and Energy (DEGGE) and the Dom Luiz Institute (IDL), is recruiting volunteers for a citizen science campaign with the aim of estimating the potential of solar mobility, using the vehicles themselves.

The campaign takes place within the scope of the "Solar Cars" project, which consists of collecting georeferenced data of solar radiation, placing on the roof of a vehicle a sensor capable of making this type of measurements.

The integration of solar panels in electric vehicles increases the range of vehicles, which charge during the day, reducing costs, CO2 emissions and charging frequency.

The "Solar Cars" project team consists of Miguel Centeno Brito and Ivo Costa, DEGGE professors and IDL researchers, and Leonardo Ferreira, a master's student in Energy and Environmental Engineering.
