Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) is the second oldest race event in the USA and is widely regarded as one of the ultimate tests of vehicle engineering prowess and driver ability. With 2016 marking PPIHC’s 100th anniversary, only 100 entries have been selected to compete in this event. One of the entries is The [...]
There’s nothing like hands-on experience, and getting your hands dirty once in a while. The Formula Student Competition is about just that – giving students a chance to test their theoretical knowledge, alongside practical skills such as project management and team working. And perhaps never before in the history of Formula Student has there been [...]
The Chinook ETS scientific club's purpose is to design a wind propelled vehicle with the ability to drive into a headwind. Based at École de technologie supérieure University, in Montreal, Canada, the Chinook team competes each year at the international event Racing Aeolus in Holland. Teams from all over the world meet at Racing Aeolus to match designs for wind turbine [...]
Active safety systems, also referred to as ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), for both commercial vehicles and passenger cars are designed to monitor and understand the state of the vehicle in order to prevent and minimize the effects of a collision.
Data on how the most important components of this electric bike are performing is crucial. For this, Kvaser donated a Kvaser Eagle to be used in combination with the team’s existing Kvaser Memorator Professional datalogger and TKE’s CANtrace software, which decodes the CAN signals in real-time.
Electric RaceAbout (ERA), an engineering project run by Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with the prestigious Institute of Design, Lahti Polytechnic, is using Kvaser’s Eagle CAN interface and datalogger in the Battery Management System of its Electric sports car.
A Swedish indoor go-kart racetrack has converted all its petrol driven engines to electric. A CAN-based monitoring system has been developed to assess battery duration and monitor performance, using Kvaser’s Memorator Pro to record the data.
Beijing Institute of Technology makes use of Kvaser CAN interfaces for production testing of its environmentally-friendly EV bus designs …
