Aerodynamics

Mechanical

The more grip a tire has, the faster a racecar can take corners. The Aerodynamics group is responsible for maximizing this grip by pressing the car into the ground using downforce and manipulating airflow through one advanced wing package. The package is designed using iterative 3D modeling in CAD (Computer Aided Design), CFD simulations (Computational Fluid Dynamics), and validation of simulation results. The group also develops fastening mechanisms for the wing package that can withstand the forces from the air. These fasteners are designed using CAD and FEM (Finite Element Method). The wing elements and fasteners are produced using advanced carbon fiber resin casts, and different production methods to create aluminum components. Depending on your position, a year in the Aerodynamics group will give you experience in the use of advanced simulation programs like STAR CCM+ (CFD) and Abaqus (FEM), 3D-modeling programs like Solidworks (CAD) and Fusion 360 (CAM), in addition to different validation and production methods.

Chassis

Mechanical

The chassis group plans, designs, and produces a complete monocoque -the car's self-supporting body- in composite material. As the monocoque is the car's main structure, this group is also responsible for integrating all the other systems inserted into or attached to the monocoque. For this reason, the group must have a good overview of all other systems on the car. Responsibilities in this group include analyzing and testing composite structures, lay-up and sandwich structure in monocoque, local reinforcements (inserts) in the monocoque, car crash structure, and roll hoops. Depending on the position, a year in the Chassis group will give you good knowledge in the use of programs for CAD (Solidworks) and FEA (Abaqus), composite materials, as well as of the car and all the systems it contains. The group also travels down to Kongsberg at the beginning of the spring semester to produce the monocoque in the Kongsberg Group's workshop, providing a unique experience in producing an advanced carbon fiber structure.

Suspension & Powertrain

Mechanical

The suspension & powertrain group is responsible for all parts connecting the racecar to the road. Everything that happens after the electric motors start turning is purely mechanical. A well-tuned suspension system can differentiate between winning a race or spinning out due to losing grip. The system is based around our in-wheel design, where motors are packed in the rim-centre of each wheel, connected to the structural suspension through the upright. The design keeps the chassis above ground and directs driving forces to the in-board suspension, translating heave and roll motion to get the best possible grip on the tarmac. Building the suspension system requires a lot of fine-tuning to obtain optimal traction, stability, and driving dynamics. A year in Suspension & Powertrain will give you lots of experience in understanding how a racecar handles and how to design and build mechanical parts in programs like Solidworks (CAD) and simulations in Abaqus (FEM) to fit our demands. You will also get hands-on experience in the workshop machining parts and communicating with external producers.

Driver Interface

Mechanical

A quick racecar is worth nothing if the driver cannot utilize its full potential. The Driver Interface group is responsible for ensuring the systems the drivers interact with provide the best possible driving experience, as well as helping enable autonomous driving. The essence of the group is mechanical systems and attention to detail that gives a good driving experience. This group encompasses Ergonomics, the Steering System, the Pedalbox, and the Brake system. After one year in the Driver Interface group, you will have good knowledge of Solidworks (CAD), Abaqus (FEM), production methods such as traditional milling and lathe work, and the casting of composite parts.

Autonomous Systems

Software

​​The Autonomous Systems (AS) group ensures the car can drive on its own, without a driver. An intelligent autonomous race car must be able to map and perceive its surroundings to navigate unknown territories using LiDAR, SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping), and path planning. The group develops the logic that works as the car's eyes, ears, and brain, enabling it to understand and act on its environment. In other words, the group converts sensor input to meaningful information about the vehicle and its environment. In addition to this, the group is responsible for the car’s autonomous control system. This is the system that enables the car to act on the sensor input, making it able to drive from A to B.

The group also travels down to Kongsberg at the beginning of the spring semester to produce the monocoque in the Kongsberg Group's workshop, providing a unique experience in producing an advanced carbon fiber structure.

Suspension & Powertrain

The suspension & powertrain group is responsible for all parts connecting the racecar to the road. Everything that happens after the electric motors start turning is purely mechanical. A well-tuned suspension system can differentiate between winning a race or spinning out due to losing grip. The system is based around our in-wheel design, where motors are packed in the rim-centre of each wheel, connected to the structural suspension through the upright. The design keeps the chassis above ground and directs driving forces to the in-board suspension, translating heave and roll motion to get the best possible grip on the tarmac. Building the suspension system requires a lot of fine-tuning to obtain optimal traction, stability, and driving dynamics. A year in Suspension & Powertrain will give you lots of experience in understanding how a racecar handles and how to design and build mechanical parts in programs like Solidworks (CAD) and simulations in Abaqus (FEM) to fit our demands. You will also get hands-on experience in the workshop machining parts and communicating with external producers.

Driver Interface

A quick racecar is worth nothing if the driver cannot utilize its full potential. The Driver Interface group is responsible for ensuring the systems the drivers interact with provide the best possible driving experience, as well as helping enable autonomous driving. The essence of the group is mechanical systems and attention to detail that gives a good driving experience. This group encompasses Ergonomics, the Steering System, the Pedalbox, and the Brake system. After one year in the Driver Interface group, you will have good knowledge of Solidworks (CAD), Abaqus (FEM), production methods such as traditional milling and lathe work, and the casting of composite parts.

Control Systems

The Control Systems group is all about race performance. We use advanced estimation- and control theory to enhance the car's traction, handling, and stability and develop systems to assist the driver. We develop multiple driving modes with very different characteristics to make the car behave optimally, whether in a tight corner or a straight line. The group also does modeling and simulation to aid in determining optimal car setup and tuning before the physical car has finished production.

Focus Areas & Tasks

  • Torque Vectoring algorithm with built-in traction control, launch control, and ABS.
  • Vehicle dynamics modeling and simulation
  • Adaptive damper development

Related Areas

  • Cybernetics, control theory, state estimation, modeling & simulation

Data Engineering

The Data Engineering (Data) group facilitates the exploitation of the data generated by simulations or collected from the hundreds of sensors on the racecar. The group provides a competitive edge through enhanced data analysis and works with self-developed software and advanced cloud computing services such as Azure and AWS. As Data Engineering enables the collection, storage, processing, and analysis of data for all groups in Revolve NTNU, Data members get a unique perspective on the vehicle as a whole rather than its parts and have the opportunity to work with all departments in the organization.

Focus Areas & Tasks

  • Guarantee the accessibility and security of the organization’s data
  • Facilitate its analysis by developing analysis tools
  • Communicate with the rest of the team about their data & data analysis needs

Related Areas

  • Informatics, Data Science, Programming, Cloud Computing

Autonomous Systems

​​The Autonomous Systems (AS) group ensures the car can drive on its own, without a driver. An intelligent autonomous race car must be able to map and perceive its surroundings to navigate unknown territories using LiDAR, SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping), and path planning. The group develops the logic that works as the car's eyes, ears, and brain, enabling it to understand and act on its environment. In other words, the group converts sensor input to meaningful information about the vehicle and its environment. In addition to this, the group is responsible for the car’s autonomous control system. This is the system that enables the car to act on the sensor input, making it able to drive from A to B.

Focus Areas & Tasks

  • Cone detection using LiDAR sensor
  • Optimization of autonomous control systems
  • Sensor fusion
  • State estimation of the car
  • Development of planning algorithms

Related Areas

  • Programming, agile development, cybernetics, sensors, perception, autonomous control
