The TU Dresden’s racing team Elbflorace has spent the last 1.5 years developing this season’s racing car “HerminE”. Compared to the predecessor model, the 2022 model is even lighter thanks to smaller wheel units, and a hydraulic emergency brake system, and features an upgraded chassis. The Blickfeld Cube 1s are part of the car’s sensor suite to detect the route for the driverless parkour. The team’s electric autonomous vehicle will be competing in both the electric and driverless discipline at the 2022 Formula student.
