The Formula Student Team Delft racecar contains a lot of electronics. Of course, there are the motors, but don’t forget the battery packs, the dashboard, the brake light and all kinds of sensors that gather information about the car and its environment. All electronics should be controlled by something, some kind of ‘central computer’. In the DUT electric car, this is the ECU, the electronic control unit. You can learn more about the ECU hardware by watching lectures offered in the course System Validation.
