Another update on the hybrid race car

Posted on Friday, May 11th, 2012 in Bus Pirate, contest by DP

The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute hybrid race car made it into competition, check out some videos of the car running below.

All last week was the competition. This is the first year RPI made it through all of the inspections and was able to compete. Next year is going to be even greater!

Overall it consisted of little sleep and a lot of wiring. The CAN nodes that I developed (and Seeed fabbed for me) worked well. Our team walked away with plenty of design feedback and we are excited to compete next year in all of the events.
