Fall 2015

Activities in Fall 2015 are focused on the design development phase of the competition.

Project GOTChA chart

This quad chart gives a snapshot of the planned activities for the term, at a high level. This information is presented here in the form of a GOTChA chart.

Goals

  • Build a highly effective team with the skills and insights required to build an electric vehicle from scratch
  • Complete a design that is compliant with the rules and will win the Formula SAE Electric competition

Technical Challenges

  • Very short timeline to produce working design, with minimal FSAE experience
  • Lack of expertise in assembling and welding frame (design bottleneck)
  • Meeting technical inspection requirements (competition bottleneck)
  • Lack of expertise in high voltage electronics (design bottleneck, safety issue)

Objectives

  • Monitor system-level requirements and budget allocations for weight and cost of components as design is evolving
  • Create compliant designs for all components and review design choices by the end of the term
    • Midterms: clearly defined requirements for each component (performance, cost, weight)
    • Finals: compliant design, with evidence of viability (prototype, vendor quote, etc)
  • Train all CS/EE/ME 75 students in safety procedures and create protocols required for safe testing, operations
  • Make enough progress in first term to build complete vehicle by end of second term
    • Finalize and build plan for the vehicle frame and begin construction (mechanical)
    • Complete a validated energetics design that will pass technical inspection (energetics)
    • Create infrastructure required for divisions to optimize their designs with testing and simulation (operations)

Approach

  • Have working core equipment (eg, motors, battery pack) working to allow testing as soon as the students are ready
  • Create simulation and testing environments that will allow design space exploration of mechanical and energetic systems
  • Know the Formula SAE Electric rules by heart
