The Mission

Your team will explore driving strategies with a remote-controlled electric model car (scale 1:10) which has a limited battery – meaning that the amount of charge is finite. It will be your task to intuitively find a driving strategy to cover the longest distance on a test track.
You will be able to record technical data – based on the results you must optimize the electric powertrain by either modifying the vehicle controller or exchanging components. Finally, the optimized car will be put to the test by measuring the range improvement. Your innovative e-mobility solutions can be wild or mild – as long as they enable you to drive your car as far as possible!

The Makers and the Making

This challenge is just the thing for people from the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, mechatronics, physics or the like with an enthusiasm for electromobility. Before the real mission starts, you and your team will take over the roles of electric powertrain components – e.g. of an electric motor, a battery manager or a vehicle- / bus controller and find out which messages and functions must be developed to make you work together as one electric powertrain. Equipped with this knowledge, you will be ready for take-off and a really tangible task!
