Design Presentation NovaBike 10
Nova Electric Racing Team 10 presented its design for the racing season of 2019 last Thursday at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, which saw a large turnout of motorcycle fanatics from in and around Delft. The event focussed on the changes that this team will bring in to make a faster, more powerful and more reliable electric racing motorcycle. This year, they will be competing at the Open Electric Superbike Competition, which will take place during the Gamma Racing Days. The 2017 European Champions of the MotoE Competition are confident to achieve a top podium spot this season with their new design.
Students Delft University of Technology and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam present design of aerodynamic recumbent bicycle that must break the world record
The Human Power Team, a student project from the Delft University of Technology and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, has today presented their new design of their newest aerodynamic recumbent bicycle: the VeloX 9. With this bicycle they will attack the world speed record of 121.8 km/h this September in Nevada.
The TU Delft Solar Boat Team presents the design of the first Dutch solar boat for the open sea
For the first time in Dutch history, the TU Delft Solar Boat Team is taking the step to develop a solar boat for the sea. It will be a trimaran, a boat with three hulls, which will completely control the ocean on solar energy. On Tuesday evening, January 15, the team presented the new design of the boat. With this boat, they plan to win the world championship for solar boats in Monaco this summer and to break a world record by crossing The Channel as the fastest solar boat in the world.
TU Delft students present design, a transformation of inefficient offices into apartments that produce more energy than they use
The MOR (Modular Office Renovation) team of the TU Delft, which consists of 54 students, is working on a design to renovate (a part of) an inefficient office into an apartment that produces more energy than it uses. On the 15th of January 2019, the team revealed the definitive design of this prototype. With the prototype, the team will travel to Hungary in July 2019 to participate in an international student competition for energy-efficient residences.
Delft student team develops gene doping detection method and wins prizes in worldwide Synthetic Biology competition
TU Delft students have devised and developed a method for detecting gene doping. This method, called ADOPE (Advanced Detection of Performance Enhancement) has the potential to combat the abuse of gene therapy in sport. Through this project, the students in the iGEM team aim to highlight how important it is that synthetic biology is used safely. They presented their idea at last week’s International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition in Boston, winning prizes for their new application and product design.
