Arm Mke1xf Mcu Replatform, Nathan Hong, Derek Lung, Japsimran Singh, Bevin Tang

Computer Engineering

After Cal Poly Racing’s electrical team began to hit the technical limits of the ADC and other I/O features of the current 8-bit Atmel AT90 microcontroller unit, it became clear that an upgrade was due. This replatforming project takes the functionalities of the old, 8-bit architecture, and aims to provide a 32-bit version using the ARM MKE1xF MCU. With the idea of having a working PCB as a stretch goal, the scope of the library development was limited to enable base functionality. Thus, the only libraries developed were for the Timer, ADC, SPI, UART, and CAN. Additionally, this ...


2016 Fsae Electric Vehicle Pedal Assembly Design, Evan Beery Jan 2016

2016 Fsae Electric Vehicle Pedal Assembly Design, Evan Beery

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

The purpose of this project was to design and produce the pedal box assembly for the electric formula SAE racecar team’s 2016 racecar. To complete this project, a working 3D model and corresponding blueprints were created. Materials were selected, machined, and assembled. FEA software was used to verify the design. The final step was manufacturing and assembling all the components together and placing them in the racecar. The precision machining was completed on campus at the University of Akron, and was considered a vital measurable of the project.

This assembly allows for the actuation of two aluminum pedals. One ...

Dynamic Simulation And Analysis Of Fsae Racer For Development Of Stability Control System, Stone D. Williford Jan 2016

Dynamic Simulation And Analysis Of Fsae Racer For Development Of Stability Control System, Stone D. Williford

University Honors Program Theses

Using Adams/Car software, a computer model of Georgia Southern University’s 2016 Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (FSAE) racecar was developed with the purpose of researching vehicle stability under dynamic conditions. Previous research in this field of study has been conducted to verify that Adams/Car simulations provide accurate results using data acquisition systems, so the major work for the current research has been to create an updated version of the vehicle designed and fabricated by Eagle Motor Sports. With this new model, vehicle roll, and pitch data as well as vehicle traction were collected during dynamic simulations. The ...


Competition Vehicle Based Intake Manifold Design, Joshua N. Matiash Jan 2016

Competition Vehicle Based Intake Manifold Design, Joshua N. Matiash

Dissertations, Master's Theses and Master's Reports

A competitive vehicle in Formula SAE needs to be easy for unskilled drivers to extract the maximum performance from. This requires a predictable and manageable torque curve. This report details the development of an intake manifold for a Formula SAE car from a vehicle-based approach to produce this manageable and predictable torque. The current vehicle was instrumented and driven on a representative track to determine the usage of available torque. Based on these findings an ideal torque curve was chosen that favored increased torque at upper engine speed ranges and decreased torque at lower engine speed ranges. A 1-D engine ...
