P15221: Baja SAE DAQ


Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

Currently the RIT BAJA SAE team has a data acquisition system that collects various vehicle parameters, however it has multiple drawbacks. The system has failed to last the duration of an endurance race, which can last up to 4.5 hours, nor has it been able to gather all data accurately and consistently.

The goal of this project is to provide the customer with a fully functional data acquisition system that will capture, store, and retrieve BAJA performance and reliability parameters while being easily integrated into the chassis. The expected end state of this project is to provide the RIT BAJA team a packaged system that can survive the long endurance races as well as being a solid base that can be build upon in years to come. The system must reliably report speed data to the driver while periodically transmitting data to the engineers for real-time diagnostics.
