Formula-Hybrid@SJSU is a multi-disciplinary engineering project aimed at building an electric-gas formula-style vehicle.? Based on a strict rulebook, the team designed, analyzed, fabricated, tested, and finally competed their car at the annual Formula-Hybrid competition in early May.? “Athena”, the name of the 572 pound electrically-powered race car, took 2nd in her category and 12th place overall.? The project, doubling as a senior design capstone for both mechanical and electrical engineers, was funded by sponsorships and donations from various local companies including the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section.
The team plans to raise the bar in 2011, building a full parallel hybrid with integrated data management systems.
