Autonomous and AWD - KaRaT builds race car of tomorrow
Soon market ready
Degree of Documentation
The Kaiserslautern Racing Team, KaRaT, is formed by students of the Technical University and the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern. Since 2008 it attends competitions of the Formula Student (FSAE). They can be described as international events that put the interdisciplinary teamwork to test. Students from different specializations design, manufacture and assemble a formula style racing car and compete with university teams from all around the world. There are many different disciplines demanding a wide range of knowledge.
Within the project there are currently around 50 active team members that deal with latest challenges of the automotive industry by designing a highly complex vehicle.
The racing car called “Electronyte e21” is not just the only electrically powered of its kind in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, it is also the first car in the history of KaRaT to realize an all-wheel-drive concept and implement components for autonomous driving.
The project is made possible by the support of the universities, but also by numerous sponsors and partners from industry. Both regional and supraregional partners form a strong network that enables knowledge transfer in addition to financial resources.
Within this project students are enabled to advance their personal and professional development. Therefore, they are prepared for upcoming tasks of the professional world and future E-Mobility as best as possible.
