Ip and the 4L,Trophy

On Thursday 16 February 2017, two students from Polytech Clermont-Ferrand, Arnaud VOYER and Etienne LALLEMAND, left for the 20th edition of the 4L Trophy. In collaboration with the Institut Pascal (team System of Chemical Sensors, PHOTON department) and the OPGC, sensors to measure the quality of the air during their journey were loaded into their vehicle. For researchers, the aim is to test their sensors in real or extreme conditions (heat, dust, vibration).
