CHASSIS AND ERGONOMICS ENGINEER
A. ERGONOMICS RIG
A successfully functioning vehicle cannot happen without planning and testing. As a part of the ergonomics team, I helped build this adjustable structure out of wooden planks and 80/20 in order to find constraints for the rest of the team.
B. STEERING WHEEL
The steering wheel is the most important part of the car for the driver and needs careful consideration on its material and controls to allow for the best possible driver performance during the race. Read my design doc
C. ACCUMULATOR COOLING SYSTEM
As the accumulator carries the batteries that power the entire vehicle, cooling becomes essential in preventing system failure. Through thermal analyze and mass flow rate calculations, I am coming up with the most space efficient and cost effective solution for accumulator cooling.
Work in progress… Follow my design process!
