  • Formula Student Driverless: Successful start in the new class: Formula Student Driverless, successful completion of the autonomously driven track course

Improvements to this yearscar

Formula Student Electric:

  • Own power inverter developed so that we can control the self-developed motor better and drive with higher performance.
  • Power pack adapted to the new power inverter. Redesigned for higher maximum voltage and so adapted to a new active cooling system.

  • Aerodynamics redesigned including the new cooling system for higher performance compared to last year, and first use of a DRS system.
  • Wheel hub transmission redesigned as an adaption for the increased performance.

  • Further weight reduction in the chassis of our single-piece monocoque to remain as one of the lightest electro-vehicles in the Formula Student.

Formula Student Driverless:

  • Redesign the EDGE8 from 2016 as a self-driving vehicle. For this the following systems were installed:
  • Steering actuator with transmission and brake actuator so that the racing car needs no driver.
  • New sensor technology for track detection: Stereo camera, LIDAR…
  • On board computer as the brain of the car.

Technical Highlights:


This is where the norelem products are used:

With the support from norelem, the planned engine test bench became a reality. The aim of the engine test bench is to carry out torque, current, temperature measurements etc. with different test setups while providing sufficient safety during tests. To achieve this a safety concept was developed using aluminium profiles and aluminium cover plates.
