UMSolar: WSC Update 1 - Scrutineering and Cover it Live
The CIL is on this web page:
You may need to scoll down to see the CIL, it's under the map of Australia.
The team successfully completed scrutineering, which is essentially an inspection process. All systems on the car are inspected to ensure they comply with regulations. This includes checking the size of the array, weight of the battery, electrical isolation switches, and other safety items. Overall, the process was very smooth. We are very satisfied to have reached this point, as qualifying is the only remaining milestone until the race!
As an update, the team passed scrutineering very quickly yesterday. A media crew (2 Michigan engineers) arrived in Darwin just a few hours ago. Maggie Hayes (Ed: former team manger, I think) will be driving the support vehicle that they are in.
