Students from various faculties at international universities are passionately involved in the Formula Student racing team. Since 2009 Vector has been supporting this practical project consisting of several teams through hardware and software, embedded operating systems, and above all expertise. Vector's commitment here improves the practical education of students in this worldwide racing series.
Vector supports the following teams at the moment:
Technical colleges and universities need discounted software and hardware as well as free equipment leases to provide a modern education. The focus of Vector's support is on colleges located near Vector business sites that offer educational programs in technological areas relevant to Vector. Vectorians share their special know-how in computer science and electrical engineering with colleges in the context of teaching projects and guest speaker events. On trips to various Vector sites student groups can experience development at Vector first hand.
The Department of energy of the United States and General Motors have started this project together with other partners to help students building a vehicle optimized on minimal energy consumption. Vector supports the project with CANoe and CANape software.
