The Vehicle Dynamics department is responsible for assuring that the vehicle being designed behaves within the desired levels of performance. This group sets target parameters and design constraints for all other departments such as the gear ratio, the weight distribution, suspension geometry and aerodynamic coefficient targets. In order to achieve such results, this department relies on vehicle simulation. Besides these issues, this group also addresses the control algorithms to be implemented in the test phase of the project. Such algorithms allow for better overall efficiency and performance.
VD simulation
Chassis Render
The Chassis department is responsible for the design of the chassis, driver interface and integration, steering, safety structures and mechanical integration of all inboard systems. This group of people must gather information from all departments and iterate possible solutions for each interface between systems, i.e. achieve a compromise between packaging, driver ergonomics, size/weight, mechanical loads and manufacturability for each interaction.
Pedal
Suspension Render
The Suspension department is responsible for all of the parts connecting the tire to the vehicle and motors. This group designs the transmission, brake system and all other parts needed to carry loads from the contact patch to the chassis. The attachment method of the electrical motors to the wheels is also included in this department.
Transmission
Aerodynamics Render
This department is responsible for the design, integration and all aerodynamic inputs of the vehicle. Together with the Vehicle Dynamics department, this group of people is in charge of assuring coherence in the design of the prototype relating to the aerodynamic influences on performance.
CFD Simulation
Powertrain Render
The Powertrain department is responsible for making the vehicle run on its own power without overheating. This group designs the whole cooling system and the integration of the high voltage containers in the vehicle. Besides this, the High Voltage harnessing and the Motor + Inverter pack implementation are also part of their tasks. This department is also responsible for designing, manufacturing and testing an e-Motor which is being developed by the team.
Powertrain
Eletronics Render
The Electronics department is responsible for all electronic systems of the vehicle. With exception of the inverter interface which is handled by the powertrain department, this group is in charge of designing or choosing all PCB used in the vehicle. Most of the hardware and software used in the prototype is self developed.
