The aim of the project was to develop a prototype for a lightweight solar-powered vehicle, which will allow for 100% carbon emission free travelling. The product is based on a three-wheel recumbent bicycle frame (so technically a trike), which allows for pedalling as an additional form of power.
The aim was to produce a product that was as low-impact as possible, and that made use of as much recycled, reused, and environmentally-friendly materials as possible.
The project won the National Science and Engineering Competition, and Shawn Brown now holds the title of 'UK Young Engineer of the Year 2010'!
