SAE Formula Car Data Acquisition System
Pamela Durgan and Michael Lepley
Advisors: Dr. Martin Morris and Dr. Donald Schertz
Co-advisors: Dr. Winfred Anakwa and Dr. Kiyohisa Okamura

Commercial suppliers of data acquisition systems provide products used to improve the design and performance of competition cars. The Mechanical Engineering Department requested the design of a data acquisition system that could aid in static and dynamic testing and record events significant to a driver's performance. The system includes sensors, signal processing circuitry, microcontroller, controlling and user interfacing software, and retrievable data storage devices that can place data in a downloadable format to MATLAB. This presentation provides for review of the design's description, justification, and recommendations for future development.
