Design, test, and build a formula style race car to compete in 1 of 7 annual FSAE competitions. Vehicle must compete in autocross, endurance, skidpad, acceleration, design, and cost and perform well in all events to win.
NI cRIO, NI PCI Express Multifunction DAQ, NI Bus-Powered 400 kS/s BIO DAQ
We must design, build, and test a formula style race car to compete in the FSAE competition. In addition to arriving at designing the vehice, students are responsible for funding the entire project by raising financial and resource support from sponsors.
Students conceptualize, design, build, and test engineering solutions to real world problems under the template of a race car project. In order for the project to be successful there is a heavy emphasis on systems integration and design validation to ensure that the vehicle potential performance is maximized.
Use of labview and NI hardware greatly expedites the testing process. With NI hardware and software we are able to streamline the process used to draw meaningful conclusions from test data. The end result is more competitive and more reliable race car.
