The season with our cars «mythen» and «pilatus driverless» was an unforgettable experience, in which we could overcome setbacks but also celebrated successful times. The electric team participated in four Formula Student events and could realize many improvements over the summer. The work of the driverless team was rewarded with two overall wins in Germany and Hungary. Yet, there is never time for complacency. To stay successful, the new driverless members will invest every second to, once more, drive «pilatus» to its limits.
The new driverless team
We proudly announce that sixteen new students have joined AMZ to form the core of our new driverless team 2020. The AMZ driverless team has a history of being diverse and this season is no difference. The members come from more than ten different nations and have their background in electrical, mechanical and robotic engineering fields. A good mix of competences to build a self driving race car! Together with the experienced, 26 ambitious minds are all set and ready to develop the best autonomous system that AMZ has seen so far.
Pilatus will be our car to use for the up coming 2020 season. Since this is the same car that was used in the 2019 season, we will be able to focus on developing more sophisticated software, while making the hardware platform more reliable than ever. This, combined with additional time for testing in simulation and on the track, should ensure a strong season for the AMZ driverless team.
