EDGE8

A revised aero package and brand new wheel hub motors!

We have been competing with a new vehicle every year since 2008, which we are constantly improving and developing. What started with just a handful of students at the beginning is now a team made up of more than 40 active members and many alumni. Our home is the Vienna University of Technology, which not only provides us with a workshop to work with, but also where most of our members study. The majority from the fields of mechanical engineering, electronics, industrial engineering and computer science. But we are also pleased that we were able to win over students from the University of Vienna and the University of Economics and Business.
