Britain's Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) is a team developing a solar-powered car to compete in the prestigious World Solar Challenge 2011. Founded in 2007, CUER is developing cutting-edge, energy-efficient, and race-winning vehicles to prove the viability of sustainable energy. The cars are powered only by the sun. To speed up the design process, ensure optimal performance, and gather data for future design refinements, CUER collaborated with Intel and made extensive use of Intel® X25-M SATA Solid-State Drives (Intel® X25-M SSDs).
“On average, we gained an overall 10 times performance increase in terms of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis thanks to the Intel contribution, including the Intel® Solid-State Drives,” said Oliver Smith, HPC and IT manager for CUER.
