Starting from Saturday (28/4), the Sleipner team has been working on putting together parts from the different group in order to have drivable vehicle for the purpose of conducting a test drive. After some late hours spent in the workshop, we finally managed to make everything work and did some tours on the campus in the very middle of the night.
This morning (Sunday, 29/4), some of the Sleipner students gathered on a test driving track at Scania, Södertälje, in order to subject our vehicle to some more thorough testing. Even though there initially were some problems with the electronics, we managed to make some test drives and we now know that all systems work together. However, the maximum speed of Sleipner turned out to be a little lower than expected, and the following week will therefore first and foremost be spent on making the required adjustments to increase the potential highest speed of the vehicle.
Two weeks remain to the competition in Rotterdam. We will do our outmost to be ready on time!
