Introduction year 2016-2017

My name is Sieger Falkena and I am this year’s chief electronics at Forze. This means that I am responsible for all the electronics and software within the car. Last year I joined the team in the electronics department. I designed and build the complete driver interface including the steeringwheel, dashboard, accumulator level led board and the dashboardnode. I liked it that much, that I decided to join the team for a fulltime year.

So, the new board has been made. The whole board consists of fulltime students working in different departments as described under the photo. So, the year has been started and in the month of September all the new parttime students have been recruited. (Electronics can still use more people, so feel free to contact us for joining the team).

In the meantime, a lot of work has been done. A lot of parts have been produced for the car and a lot of testing has resulted in an almost working car. In the next couple of blogs, some important parts of the car will be highlighted, starting in the next post with my own project reflecting what I’ve done and build last year.
