Driverless Integration

Main Task

Building a Formula Student car that is able to drive by itself requires additions in the form of extra safety systems, such as an emergency brake system that has lots of requirements placed on it. Your tasks will consist of the electrical design required to make this brake system work as well as designing the hardware required to monitor its performance for safety. You will also work closely with the brakes team to make sure the mechanical part of the system works. You’ll collaborate a lot with the other members in the low voltage and driverless subteams so good communication is vital for succeeding in this role.

Your Profile

You should feel comfortable in communicating with other members in the team and it’s also a plus if you have previous experience of working with electrical components and designing circuits in other projects. Some experience with mechanical design and CAD is also very good to have.
