Electrical Firmware Team

The Electrical Firmware Team is responsible for all software on the car. They create and manage software for micro-controllers on the car for controls, safety, and communication between both low voltage and high voltage components on the car.

Team Members: Dominic Bourget, Alex Vesel, Dayton Lindsay, Gabe Gozum, Mostafa Wail Hassan

  Vito Immordino | Accumulator Lead

Vito Immordino | Accumulator Lead

Accumulator Team

The accumulator team is responsible for designing and building the high voltage battery which will power the electric car. This battery is made up from many small cells which must be packaged into a form which minimizes weight, maximizes total capacity, and has great ease of maintenance.

Team Members: Brandon Sielski, Gunnar Schmitz, Kyle Anderson, Shuai Yuan

 

  Cory Karnick | Controls Lead

Cory Karnick | Controls Lead

Controls TEAM

The controls team is responsible for creating and implementing algorithms which make use of data provided by sensors to make the car run faster and more efficiently.

Team Members: Gabriel Gozum, Kelvin Zheyu He

Aerodynamics TEAM

The aerodynamics team for the electric car collaborates closely with their combustion equivalents. They are responsible for manufacturing any parts of the car that are made of carbon fiber, namely the monocoque, bodywork, and the wings.

Team Members: Damask Grinnell, Dylan Zinkgraf, Elliot Kimmel, Jon Lund, Junjie Shen, Louis Rigo, Max Behrens, Ted Burns, Walker Silha

 

 

Chassis Team

The chassis team works to take advantage to the good work done by the other sub-teams and turn it into lap times. They are responsible for the hybrid monocoque frame, steering, suspension, Brakes and vehicle dynamics to make Wisconsin Racing vehicles some of the best handling in the world.

Team Members: Kissak Saraijan, Louis Rigo

EleCTRICAL HardWARE Team

The Electrical Systems Team is responsible for all low voltage components on the car. Connected by a wiring harness, they are the ECU, Steering Wheel, Data Logger, Sensors, Low Voltage Battery and distribution, and Wireless Modem. We design custom PCBs using Altium, our custom circuits include a power distribution panel, resistive sensors, and embedded electronics in the steering wheel.

Team Members: Marisa Tisler, Evan Hakamaki, Justin Pierro, Anders Bandt, Kai Linsenmeyer, Hunter Alexander, Jacob Hoeg, Patrick Higgins

 

DriveTRAIN TEAM

The Drivetrain Team is responsible for taking all of the energy of the accumulator in the form of AC current from the inverters and convert it into torque at each one of the tires. Designing custom planetary gear boxes, electric motors, and working in collaboration with the chassis team on housing everything including the upright inside of each tire. Our team is also responsible for cooling design of the vehicle, keeping the motors and inverters working at optimal states.

 

Team Members: Max Liben, Nick Zoellick, Tyler Hanzlik

 

Structures TEAM

The structures team handles the main chassis of the car. Working on the design, analysis, and manufacturing of our monocoque and rear space frame. The structures team, chassis team, and aerodynamics team work heavily in unison to ensure the cars main envelope is rules compliant and will keep our driver safe.
