Control Room


This is the hub of the Veolia World Solar Challenge 2011, a place where you can track your favourite team, see what the rest of the field is up to and track progress as the solar vehicles travel 3021 kilometres from Darwin in the North of Australia, to Adelaide in the South.

The maps show tracker locations as they're reported, which sometimes means that there is a delay between where the tracker last reported a vehicle and where the actual location on the road is. Australia is a huge country and there is limited mobile phone coverage along the route, so our trackers use satellites to communicate back to base. Sometimes a mountain, a tree or a person is in the way and the signal doesn't get through immediately.

For current information, you should keep an eye on the BLOG and Facebook pages which will show updates as they come to hand.
