UNC Charlotte Baja SAE allows mechanical engineering students to gain real world experience through a controlled design competition utilizing theory learned in the classroom. Each year, the team builds a car within given technical specifications by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
Our team is also working on improving the suspension system for the current car. We are implementing a data acquisition system to read and record values from shock pressure sensors, accelerometers, and GPS loggers. The driver will also be able to adjust the shock pressures through a controlled air system. With this project, coupled with building a new car, the team is busy and ready to do UNC Charlotte proud!
This year’s team is anchored by two senior design groups. Senior Design 2 (May graduates) is led by Caleb Allen and includes Cameron Baker, Josh Bussiere, Jerry Dsouza, Roberto Garcia, Dan Garver, CJ Hall, and Aedan McHugh. Senior Design 1 (December graduates) is led by Dustin Dunn and includes Joshua Baptist, Terrell Britton, and Kenneth Hitt.
