Transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions are one of the most serious environmental concerns, and they are rising at an alarming pace. As a result, solar energy for transportation might be able to solve this problem. The aim of the proposed work is to contribute a technology that promotes Renewable energy; for example, imagine a situation in which we might use solar energy to charge electric cars that have solar panels-built in. solar powered vehicles that can collect and store solar power during their daily trips in their onboard solar batteries These cars can store some solar energy in the batteries and can run smoothly at night and also in the absence of sunlight. As vehicles return to their base stations, they move their Excess power collection to bigger base station batteries, which can be used later.
