Solar energy is the energy produced from the sun. Solar panel also known as photovoltaic cell, are used to convert solar energy from the sun into electricity. This project is about making of a solar powered vehicle which can be driven by suns energy. I also experimented some key factors which would help make an efficient solar panel car. I analyzed different angles at which solar panel work efficiently throughout the day and also the voltage changes of solar panel throughout the day. I concluded that the solar panel works most productively at 40-60 degrees angle. I measured the distance the vehicle traveled by being charged for different number of hours. I noticed that the car traveled for 12 ft in 3minutes and 5 seconds, after being charged for 2 hours and the car travelled at about 23 (ft.) in 7 minute. The car traveled at 54 (ft) in 9 minutes. Finally the vehicle was able to move at a distance of 86 feet in 12 minutes. I conclude that my first hypothesis was right, the second and last were proved false. A vehicle can efficiently work on solar energy and solar panels should be used in the world.
