Chatting with Automotive Engineering

Chat Room in Teams

Questions about this program? We’re ready for you in Teams on Sunday 10 May!

Look at it like an online drop-in room: between 10am and 3pm (GMT+1) you’re free to ‘walk’ in and out of Teams whenever you want. You don’t have to sign up first. You can ask questions in the chat, so your microphone and camera stay turned off. Handy: you’ll also see other people’s questions and answers!

Who uses the least energy?

Ecomarathon: build your own vehicle

In the HAN Ecomarathon project, student teams build their own vehicles in the first academic year to drive as economically as possible. An average speed of at least 15 km/h must be achieved. That is quite difficult!

Student Richenel Cornelissen can discuss this. "At the Ecomarathon, the team that uses the least energy is the winner. That means low rolling resistance, air resistance, economical engine, light weight, etc."

But yes, the construction of a vehicle today in the corona crisis is not an issue and the rally on the Lelystad circuit at the end of the period has also been canceled. Richenel: "For many students, that was the most fun part of it all. We all broke down and our project became a mess. We just couldn't work together remotely."

Yet it was precisely because of this, they found the strength to continue. In consultation with HAN-teacher and supervisor Wijnand Zwart, it was decided that each team member will be individually assessed on their share in the project. That gave the inspiration allmost to everyone to make something of it. The students started working on it as a team. And now? Miraculously it is going very well again! The design of the vehicle of Richenel's team has been positively reviewed, even if it is not built.

The order has been completed with the design of an alternative to the Stint, a brand name for an electric powered vehicle from the company Stint Urban Mobility designed for the transport of children. The students come up with a business case around it. In this way, both the technicians and the business management students of Automotive can get back to work. After all, a good design is only good if it is legally permitted and economically feasible!
