AGM routeMASTER and Green MotorSport ride European WAVE

AGM routeMASTER and Green MotorSport ride European WAVE
Green MotorSport, the electric vehicle technology innovator, is preparing for its annual drive across the heart of Europe powered by solar energy, in the World Advanced Vehicle Expedition (WAVE) and will be monitored all the way in real-time by AGM’s routeMASTER vehicle tracking system.

Two, solar powered electric cars, designed and built by Green MotorSport, will set off on June 13th from Plauen near Berlin and join the WAVE as it travels on its fifth annual tour through twenty or so towns and cities across four countries, in difficult off-road terrain to finish in the high Alps on June 21st.

Along the way, the expedition will pause to give demonstrations for schools, local businesses, government offices and communities regarding the merits of sustainable energy and the part which solar-powered eco-friendly vehicles can play in the global drive to conserve energy and protect the environment.

“The purpose of WAVE is to evaluate the latest advances with battery electric vehicles powered by renewable energy and to give awards in several categories.” Says Green MotorSport MD and founder Gordon Foat. “We have participated every year and I’m pleased to say that AGM have been with us, providing essential vehicle monitoring and tracking for the last three”

Green MotorSport (GMS) was founded by Gordon Foat in 2001 and is the first company specifically set up to research “Green motor sport”. Gordon and his team have won a number of prestigious awards during the WAVE tours including the People and Environment Achievement award, 2012 for sustainable sport. In 2014 the WAVE was accepted by the Guinness Book of World Records as the event with the largest number of electric vehicles.

AGM Telematics, based in Corby, has worked closely with GMS to provide an effective method of monitoring the electric car’s speed and location so that progress can be accurately charted by everyone who follows the WAVE expedition.

“The Green MotorSport philosophy – to provide sustainable alternatives to conventional and less environmentally friendly vehicles - fits well with our own” comments AGM Director George Weston. “Our routeMASTER telematics system is a cloud-based modular tool set which comprises three core modules – planning, dispatch and tracking - all of which are designed to improve vehicle efficiency and in turn help to reduce energy consumption. The real-time tracking module which is being used by GMS and many commercial vehicle fleets throughout the UK, has the ability to provide automatic updates regarding speed, location, acceleration, braking and even hard cornering. For GMS, the live monitoring is important in order that key vehicle data can be instantly reported and also used for later performance analysis.”

Experts and enthusiasts alike will be able to monitor the progress of GMS throughout the tour by visiting AGM’s website www.route-master.com.

GMS has spent over 10 years designing, developing and refining electric motors for the light vehicle market that are efficient, powerful and cost-effective.

The company now manufactures and sells its own in-house designed liquid cooled electric motor, together with all other components required for an electric drive train solution.
