The managers are responsible for the operational parts of the organisation. The make sure that the workload is divided and that their teams meet the deadlines. They are also members of the board.
The Monocoque team design the carbon fiber reinforced polymer monocoque. This functions as the chassis on which the car is based, as opposed to a steel space frame. This team needs to pay special attention to how each subsystem is integrated in the chassis to make the most effective car possible.
The Chassis Dynamics team can most easily be described as designing all the moving parts of the car. More specifically, this team consists of suspension, drivetrain, steering, brakes and pedals, hubs & uprights along with Vehicle Dynamics. This gives the team many different areas to design, but with the common goal of reaching optimal racing characteristics of our car. This team is therefore crucial for achieving a dynamically well-performing race car.
The Low Voltage team is responsible for sensors, control and logging, safety systems, power supply, wiring, control unit hardware and software, among other things. These systems are what tie together the driver (human or computer) and the high voltage system, as well as the rest of the car.
The Powertrain team is responsible for the batteries, motor control, all high voltage electronics and the low voltage electronics directly controlling these as well as the containers housing them all. Our core goals are to make the drivetrain as light and powerful as possible all the while keeping safety in mind. To put it short, the design decisions made here will determine if the team is building a Fiat or Ferrari.
