Electrical / Data Acquisition
Formula UBC is a student organisation involved in designing, building and racing a Formula style race car each year.
Through passion and commitment, students collaborate as a team to design and build a formula style open-wheeled race car that competes in the annual Formula SAE competition. Each member contributes his or her skills in a specialized area of interest such as powertrain, chassis, suspension, electronics, controls or aerodynamics. The completed car is taken to Lincoln, Nebraska, where it competes against 79 other universities and colleges from around the world.
As a member of the Electrical/Data Acquisition Team, I help build the car from the inside out, working with various electrical and software subsystems ranging from engine wiring harnesses to semi-automatic pneumatically-actuated transmissions. Through my work with the team, I've gained a wealth of practical experience in debugging embedded systems, networking protocols, as well as team problem-solving skills.
