Formula Student Germany - A benchmark for Team Ojas ...

Tuesday, July 28th, 9pm

Hockenheimring ,Germany

Overall the event was a great learning experience as world class teams came from different corners of the globe to display their engineering and project management skills. We were quite overwhelmed with the level of engineering that was displayed at the event.

Electrically, the judges praised us for the level of complexity we displayed in our systems as students, but at the same time, asking us to concentrate on the wiring and routing of the car. Our LiPo cells were criticized, following which we are in talks with several cell manufacturers from South-East Asia. Mechanically, we were asked to optimize the vehicle dynamics systems and improve the bodywork of the car.

We have come back with a lot of ideas which will help us refine our car for the upcoming season, the design for which has already started. Having your support by our side would certainly be an added advantage for setting a benchmark for the 2016 event and it will be critical in ensuring that we are at par with the level of competition next year.
