In recent years, more and more Formula Student events have adapted to host a driverless competition along the traditional combustion and electric cars, in which students are challenged to build a fully autonomous racing vehicle. To take on this new challenge we have assembled a brand new Driverless team in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, all in order to refit one of our previous cars and make it autonomous. The Driverless challenge entails design in flourishing areas of engineering including:
Vehicle Modelling & Control
We could still use some extra hands - are you up to the challenge?
As this is still a fairly new division within the team we are looking for motivated and responsible students that are willing to form the core of the team. Many aspects of the driverless challenge need to be decided from scratch. As coreteam member you bear responsibility for a part of the car. This can be a technical department or a management aspect. You are involved in making decisions on the top level design.
As an engineer you have the unique challenge to (co)design and build a part of the first driverless vehicle in the history of our team. You are charged with the design, production of a part of the car, giving you the oppertunity to grow as an engineer. We are looking for both full-time (40+ hours/week) and part-time (15+ hours/week) engineering applicants.
There are also operations and logistics positions available within the team, which deal less with the design and construction of the car, and more with the behind-the-scenes part of the project. Building two cars is on itself a complex project. For the new team we are looking for people interested in the logistics and acquisition side of the team as well as the PR activities.
As with our electric team, the driverless team also offers 3rd-year bachelor students of the TU Delft the opportunity to do their minor while working on building a racing car in their first semester. Due to this being a young team, we can not yet provide a comprehensive list of possible minor projects, but if this sounds like an interesting pursuit to you, do not hesitate to contact us!
