As a high-level international racing team, Tongji Dian Racing Team independently designs and manufactures an electric formula car each year, and achieves impressive results in all major electric Formula Student events around the world.

This season’s new car – DRe17 – has undergone a significant change in technology and appearance, including: the use of four electric motors, a third spring, a self-built BMS, and other technologies to bring new ideas into the domestic electric car design. The resulting dynamic performance proved the superiority of the program.

The stable performance of the racing team is based on countless test runs and precise requirements on the different specifications and values, such as including data capture quickly and easily for analysis using the Kvaser Memorator Pro 2xHS v2 interface and data logger.

Weiqi Sun, from Tongji DIAN Racing says:

“We use the Kvaser data logger for each test to record and analyze the data and also for the competition. The Kvaser Memorator interface and data logger is very easy to use, data recording is accurate. The master computer can get the time of power on, and it provides a variety of output data file types for us to choose from; often we can even directly analyze the test data in the field.”

Kvaser data loggers are the first choice of CAN bus interface for the world’s Formula Racing teams based on their ability to efficiently gather parameters such as battery usage, cooling pack temperature, lean angles, suspension data, wheel speed, torque, acceleration and braking.
