The Electrical subteam is responsible for both cars' power distribution systems, aerodynamic control, sensors, datalogging, telemetry, and web/application development. On the IC we are additionally in charge of engine management and transmission control, and all high voltage electronics on the EV. With such wide-ranging projects, the electrical Electrical subteam is necessarily multi-disciplinary in nature and finds itself working with all other subteams to ensure that their specific sensing and control requirements are met.
On Electrical, you might find yourself designing and assembling custom PCBs, writing embedded software to implement performance-critical control systems, assembling a custom mil-spec wiring harness, developing applications, or managing custom cloud infrastrucutre. Though many of our members are EE, CE, or CS majors, anyone who is interested in what we do is more than welcome to join.
