With the aim of developing together with students an electric vehicle in which the latest technological developments are integrated, a fascinating student project was created at the IEW:
the electronic go-kart project called StudKart.
Students from four different disciplines contribute their knowledge to the further development of this vehicle and deepen it in their studies/bachelor or master/diploma theses.
StudKart "Version 1"
In the first version of the StudKart, a conventional go-kart was converted to an electric kart. The following components were replaced or added:
- Two brushless DC motors replace the old combustion engine
- power electronics
- security surveillance
- 8 Li batteries from Stihl power tools serve as energy storage devices
