Keynote: How to Halve the Energy Consumption of EVs
Arjo van der Ham, Lightyear
The three main concerns for buying EVs are range, cost, and charging. Energy consumption is the key driver for all three, and therefore is the main focus of Lightyear’s mission to deliver clean mobility for everyone.
To achieve roughly half of the energy consumption of current EVs, Lightyear has developed the Lightyear 0 solar car from the ground up, including 4 motors directly in the wheels and 5 square meters of solar panels. Besides an overview of where the company stands today, how they got there, and a peek into where they're going, Lightyear’s CTO dives into the Model-Based Design process that enabled this radical reduction in energy consumption, the technology that resulted from it, and how MATLAB® and Simulink® are used along the way.
