Specifically, it explores the electrical systems involved in the solar car design, including both high voltage (HV) systems like the Solar Array, Battery, and Motor, and low voltage systems such as the horn, display, driver interface systems, and the Controller Area Network (CAN bus). The study aims to develop a comprehensive understanding of the electrical architecture of solar cars, encompassing integration and communication between various components through the CAN bus. By examining the design, integration, and performance of these systems, this paper contributes to the advancement of eco-friendly transportation solutions and highlights the potential for renewable energy sources in the automotive industry. The project is undertaken by the Virginia Tech Solar Car team, as part of their participation in the solar car competition, demonstrating their expertise in sustainable vehicle design and innovation. In addition, the subsequent paper in this series (Part IV) will address the testing and validation phase of the solar car project. This paper will provide valuable insights into the practical verification of the solar car, detailing the implementation of the corresponding validation plan. By conducting rigorous testing and evaluation on physical prototypes, the performance and functionality of the solar car will be thoroughly assessed, ensuring its reliability and adherence to design specifications.</p> Behzad Hamedi, Jack Michaud, Anthony Etzler, Danny Stover , Kyle Shah, Joey Dias , Adeel Aziz, Saied Taheri Copyright (c) 2023 Thu, 07 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 ECO-FRIENDLY TRANSPORTATION: SOLAR CAR DESIGN FOR COMPETITION- PART I, STRUCTURAL CHASSIS <p>The design and analysis of the structural chassis for a solar-powered car are crucial aspects of ensuring driver safety and supporting the vehicle's mechanical and electrical systems. This paper is the first part of a four-part series that covers the design and development of an eco-friendly solar car for competition. The project is divided into multiple parts to provide further details of each aspect. Part I focuses on the design and analysis of the chassis, with an emphasis on achieving driver safety and a lightweight architecture. In this paper, we present the design methodology employed by the Virginia Tech Solar Car Project team during the 2022-2023 timeframe. The design process involves conducting multiple static and dynamic clearance analyses to ensure sufficient space among the chassis and other dynamic systems while maintaining optimal driver positioning. Additionally, impact and stress analyses are performed to assess the chassis' strength and identify areas for structural enhancements.The results of the analysis demonstrate that the designed chassis meets the required safety standards as well as performance criteria. The design approach prioritizes lightweight construction without compromising the&nbsp; structural integrity of the chassis. Throughout the design process, various challenges are encountered, which will be discussed in detail to provide holistic insights and lessons learned.</p> Behzad Hamedi, Kiran Marques, Ryan Vargo, Hanshin Lee, Kurt Peng , Eashan Gupta, Saied Taheri Copyright (c) 2023 Thu, 07 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 ECO-FRIENDLY TRANSPORTATION: SOLAR CAR DESIGN FOR COMPETITION- PART II, SUSPENSION, STEERING, AND TRACTION SYSTEMS <p>This paper presents the design and analysis of the Suspension, Steering, and Traction Systems for a solar-powered car, as part of a larger eco-friendly transportation project. The aim of this study is to present a comprehensive overview of the mechanical subsystems, highlighting the design process and addressing the challenges encountered in achieving a balanced performance.<br>The design approach for the Suspension, Steering, and Traction Systems involved careful consideration of various restrictions and parameters to ensure efficiency and effectiveness. Adhering to industry standards, regulations, and best practices, the methodology employed a rigorous design approach to meet the project requirements. Throughout the design process, factors such as weight, stability, and maneuverability are considered to optimize the overall performance of the solar car. The design team has already focused on balancing these factors to enhance the vehicle's handling, stability, and energy efficiency. By implementing an innovative design process and leveraging state-of-the-art technology, the final product demonstrates good design integrity and is ready for comprehensive performance evaluation. The findings and insights gained from this study contribute to the ongoing development and advancement of solar-powered vehicles, specifically in the areas of Suspension, Steering, and Traction Systems.</p> Behzad Hamedi, Gunnar Copeland, Xiujie Harry Rui, Kurt Peng, Alex Strizenec, Jianyu Hua, Saied Taheri Copyright (c) 2023 Thu, 07 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 ORCHID PESTS AND THEIR PESTS METHODS OF FIGHTING <p>In this article, aphids causing damage in intensive orchards, absorbent such as shackles, spiders, shields, shackles, against sucking pests by studying pest bioecology information about the fight is provided.</p> Khurramova Munira Ahmad kizi Copyright (c) 2023 Sat, 23 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 NOVEL DEVICE TO DETECT FOOD CALORIES USING MACHINE LEARNING <p>In an era where dietary choices significantly impact health and wellness, the accurate assessment of calorie intake is of paramount importance.
