WSC: Cruiser status at Daly Waters

The chart below (click to zoom) shows the current state of play for the WSC Cruiser class as at Daly Waters, using data from the official website – although it seems to me that there are some roundoff errors in those numbers. The chart has been updated to include Minnesota (accidentally left out of the official stats). Everybody recharged their batteries overnight.

Each team has three coloured bars: first the number of person-kilometres (black icons show occupied seats and white icons empty seats), then the energy usage (number of charges, which is 2, times battery capacity), and finally the overall score (which is the ratio of those two numbers). The black number in the final bar shows the ranking. All bars are scaled to a percentage of the maximum, because the exact numbers do not matter – only the relative relationships. The rule for the score bar is: first bar divided by second bar, then scale so that the largest is 100%.

It can be seen that Eindhoven has a solid lead (and they will display their own performance in detail here), but there is a battle for second place. Lodz explain their problems (in Polish video) here. Bochum explain theirs (in German text) here.

  3. I am really surprised by the huge lead Eindhoven has over the competitors. Efficiency score 80 versus 19 for number 2, Bochum after day 3! Is their car (and strategy) so much better then all others?

    • It’s a combination of efficient car, small battery, and lots of passengers. Whereas Bochum had serious technical problems which led to them not taking passengers.
