Fourth Semester Project


In this joint project of the institutes ACS, IEM, IFHT and ISEA, students from the 4th semester build an electric car which autonomously follows a given course. Through this project, students learn to deal with electrical machines, power electronics, sensor systems and control techniques with a microprocessor. The basic knowledge of batteries, DC motors, boost and buck converters, servo drives and measurement is conveyed in preparatory lectures. The control design, design of circuit boards and programming is arranged independently by the student groups, under supervision of research assistants from the institutes above. The project is concluded with a race between all groups participating.
