Project Summary Project Information

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

Hot Wheelz requires a customizable test bench to validate and collect data from their powertrain system.

The Hot Wheelz Team is in need of an electrical test-bench to verify all electrical and hybrid systems of the car while the mechanical manufacturing is taking place. The cart will be adjustable and portable enough to be useful and save time for future designs. It will have permanent safety systems that are static designs from year to year. It will include data collection and circuit completion indicators that will be transmitted wirelessly to a user-friendly GUI. The test-bench may include motor loading or dynomometer adaption capabilities to more fully verify the powertrain system.

Importance summary: Allow Hot Wheelz team to make use of valuable testing time to make sure system functions properly
