The electric and driverless BeElectric-01 car designed by the students of Istanbul Technical University Racing Club 24 will compete at Formula Student in Italy in July.
BeElectric-01, an electric and autonomous driverless vehicle, prepares to compete in Formula Student Italy. Design began in the Formula Student vehicle beelectric 2017-01, 24 will be held in Parma, Italy in July, he will represent Turkey at Istanbul Technical University and Italian Formula Student race.
Turkey's first Formula Student Electric Tool
BeElectric-01 Project Leader Ömer Demirci stated that ITU Racing Club was founded in 2007 in ITU Faculty of Mechanical Engineering to participate in Formula Student, one of the most important student competitions in the world.
ITU Racing reported that a total of 50 students from different disciplines such as machinery, electronic communications, electrical and industrial engineering were employed. Demirci continued his words as follows: TÜ ITU residents, thanks to the projects produced under the roof of our club; taking responsibility, teamwork, working with time pressure. ”
Formula Student's 14 held in different countries around the world and 100'un stating that an organization attended by the university Demirci, teams in this competition designed and produced Formula racing cars, he said. The vehicles; design, technical supervision, dynamic stages, including the 3 race in different categories participated in the races and said they were ranked according to the points they collect from all stages.
ITU Racing's first year as Turkey's first Formula Student 2010 tool held in the US state of Michigan, producing F-beexnumx Formula SAE, gave the information to the xnumx't they begin to participate in the competition in Italy.
Demirci gave the following information about the equipment and working principle of the vehicle: algılama Environmental detection is provided by lidar and camera sensors. Thanks to the Lidar sensor, the vehicle detects the obstacles around it and maps them and continues on its way without hitting them. The stereo camera system detects two different colored cones on the right and left sides of the car and sets a course. ”
The data from the detection systems are analyzed on the Nvidia Px2 supercomputer, which runs artificial intelligence algorithms specially designed for autonomous vehicles. After the main codes and algorithms are calculated on this computer, they are transmitted as signals to the drivetrain. The vehicle drives a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor. ”
The nominal power of the engine is 80kW and the calculation computer to take action according to the commands that inform Demirci, 180 mileage speed of the vehicle uses a position-controlled engine for steering movements, said he has a pneumatic system for braking.
