Hope everyone has had a good syllabus week so far! For EVT things have been ramping up over the weekend and first two days of class. We have given several prospective members shop tours already with some already beginning their first projects! We are prepping our budget proposal for the Polytechnic Foundation for funding this week and prepping for our events that are coming up on campus that you may catch us attending detailed below.
Hello, my name is Matthew Davenport and I am the newly elected president of the Kennesaw State Electric Vehicle Team (KSU EVT). This season we hope to achieve something that will impact the future of electric cars. Before I get into what is planned for this season, I would like to recap this past season. This past season we designed and built a prototype electric autonomous go-kart and took part in building an electric formula SAE racecar. At our competition, Electric Vehicle Grand Prix in Indianapolis, Indiana, we placed 1st overall, 1st in design, and 1st in energy efficiency for our driven electric go-kart, and 3rd in the race for the autonomous go-kart.
