Software

Revolve Analyze is our in-house developed software used to analyze data acquired from the car’s sensors. It receives real time telemetry data during test drives as well as racing, and is essential for continuously improving the car and drivers throughout the season.

Power Systems

The Power Systems group is responsible for providing reliable high voltage and current from our in-house designed battery pack to the motors in the most efficient way possible. Employing safe monitoring tools and ensuring that any failure in the electrical system will not harm the driver or the crew is essential challenges. The group will also work to reduce the effect of EMI on the car’s systems.

Embedded Electronics

This group is responsible for all low voltage systems on the car, including the battery management system, dashboard, inverter & motor controller, safety systems, sensors and vehicle control unit. This includes PCB design and software development. The Embedded Electronics group also makes sure that data from the car gets transferred wirelessly.

Aerodynamics

The aerodynamics group is responsible for external and internal flow of the car. Through CFD analysis, they are developing an effective and lightweight aerodynamic package, using high-lift wings, the underbody, as well as the car itself, to create downforce. They also develop a water based cooling system for the electric motor and inverter, and an air based cooling system for the accumulator, designed to allow all the components to run at optimal temperatures.

Suspension & Drivetrain

The Suspension group is responsible for the dynamics of the car, and the mechanical aspect of the tractive system. These systems include the wheel assembly, steering system and brakes, and an in-house developed planetary gearbox, The main objective of the suspension is to make the tires maintain grip during all driving situations, and provide efficient power output from the motors. Our focus is to make a car with good handling characteristics and consistent feedback to the driver.

DRIVERLESS VEHICLE

Perception & Navigation

An intelligent autonomous race car must be able to map and perceive it’s surroundings in order to navigate unknown territories at higher speeds. Perception & Navigation combines live sensor input from lidar detection, camera imaging and State Estimation to solve the driving problem using algorithms such as SLAM, Neural Net Inference, Visual Odometry and Dynamic Track Finding.

The algorithms are extensive, and we are responsible for developing the logic that sees and interprets the world around the vehicle. In simple terms, we are the eyes, ears and brain of the car, facilitating its driverless operation.

Mechatronics

The Mechatronics group is responsible for the actual physical car. Maintenance of the existing electrical and mechanical systems on the car is carried out by this group. They also make the physical changes that are required for the car to function as a self-driving autonomous vehicle. Their tasks involve, but are not limited to: Designing and manufacturing the necessary actuators for control and braking, designing brackets and mounting the required sensors, as well as designing and making circuit boards that run the autonomous system.
