Titled ‘Designing a lap simulator for the Shell Eco-marathon’, this project focussed on building software that could simulate the performance of UCL Racing’s Shell Eco-Marathon prototype vehicle. Built in MATLAB and Simulink, some aims of the project included: modelling straight line and cornering performance, building a strong tyre model and flexibility in test environments (i.e. model performance at different tracks).

Design Challenge 2021 has tasked first- and second- year university student teams with designing and building a repeatable vehicle which represents the first stages of a robotic vehicle that could be used for materials handling purposes.

Split into four related projects over the course of two terms, Year 2 Scenarios challenged us in groups to think and solve problems as engineers. Taking real world problems and tackling them in a week threw us into the deep end and gave me insight into how engineering problems are approached in real life.
