Westerlo Mechanical Systems
My name is Kobe Vandeven (21 years old). I’m in my master of electromechanics at the University of Leuven. Together with Adrian and Martijn, I will be designing the mechanical components for the 7th Belgian solar car. In this team we get the chance to have a taste of the business-life. We collaborate with companies who share their expertise. Hereby, we can use the latest technologies to build the fastest solar car. Because we are all students, the craziest ideas come forwards. It is our job to investigate these ideas and if they are possible, we execute them. The most motivating part of this project in my opinion is that we are going to actually manufacture the solar car.
