Hello, my name is Mathijs Bekkering. I started my first year at Formula Student Team Delft as the Chief Electronics, a full time function that organises the electronics engineers who design the control systems of the car. It was very important for me to get to know the cars built in previous years in a rapid tempo. Very quickly I realised just how many individual parts are necessary to build a fully electric car - surprising isn’t it?
With 7 engineers in the electronics department we are going to design all the controls, sensors and other devices that get the car to perform to its limits. The year just started but the learning process is already extremely rapid. It has to be, because we only have one year to take our shot at building the fastest electric racing car of the competition. It's an extremely challenging and gruelling task, but the process of doing it will be more than worth it.
