|Project Summary||Project Information|
The RIT Formula SAE Team annually competes in North America with two custom race cars. To ensure success at these competitions, the team frequently tests the vehicles during the spring semester in the G & H parking lots. To support the racecars both during testing and at competitions, the team uses a portable workstation with supplies and equipment to perform basic vehicle repairs and adjust vehicle parameters. Currently, the workstation is difficult to transport to the testing area and maneuver at competitions because of its size and weight. It also consumes a large amount of space in the team build area that is needed to assemble the vehicles. A new workstation is proposed that will have a smaller footprint, an organized set of equipment to minimize time lost due to repairs and is easily transported to the parking lots and around competitions.
The goals of this project are to fulfill the requirements generally outlined above in a manageable and durable form. A fully functional prototype that is ready for use by the RIT Formula SAE Team will be delivered to coincide with their upcoming testing and competition season. The delivered prototype will optimize for a manageable footprint, turning radius, and overall weight. It will also have sufficient capability to support the vehicles during testing and at competition, as defined by the Vehicle Dynamics group of the RIT Formula SAE Team.
