About the subteam

The electrical subteam is responsible for power delivery, data acquisition and vehicle control.

We use Altium Designer (maybe throw an @ in here for the licenses) to develop in-house PCBs used for DRS/shifting control, power distribution, datalogging, and more. We integrate all of our systems and sensors using race-industry standard wiring harness manufacturing practices. By nature we work with every other subteam and are heavily focused on system integration. 

What you will gain
  • Experience with Altium, LTspice, Rapid Harness, firmware development IDEs

  • Opportunity to design, prototype, manufacture, and validate an electrical project

  • Chance to work on a multi-disciplinary team with many other passionate engineering students

  • Insight and the ability to work on PCB and wiring harness manufacturing
