Formula Student Team at Esslingen University Get Electrics Right

Last year I was approached by a guy from Esslingen University, who’d heard about us by word of mouth from a colleague who’d done an internship at Gigatronic. They had a team of student engineers working on a project to design a racecar that could compete globally, with other Universities and Colleagues in the Formula Student Program. They wanted to use our electrical design software for all the wire harness and electrical connectivity in the car and they wanted it for free. Well we couldn’t refuse. We could have, but we are not like that. These are the engineers of tomorrow after all.
