as a platform for student projects

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 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 "Model C"

Leaving the road - electrically to off-road

With the latest research and teaching platform we want to break new ground. In order to do this on a technological level as well, we are again looking for motivated students who would like to implement the latest approaches in a practical way in their student work within this project. If you are interested, please have a look at the currently advertised projects of the institute, you are also welcome to contact the contact persons.


StudKart "Model B"

The next generation of the StudKart.
A large number of components were developed and processed in-house:

  • Development of a full carbon frame
  • Development of a battery system (LiFeMnPO4 cells and battery management system (BMS))
  • Own power electronics
  • Contactless charging system

StudKart "Model A"

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
