Apply for Team 8
Apply for the Human Power Team
Do you want to shift the boundaries of humanity, take your studies into a cozy interdisciplinary team and take a great challenge? Apply now for the Human Power Team!
In September 2018, the Human Power Team 8 will try to recapture the world-speed record cycling (144km /hr!) in a self-designed and self-built recumbent bike and you can be part of it! The Human Power Team is still looking for two enthusiastic full time members to complete the team: a structural engineer and an electrical engineer.
- Structural Engineer -
As a structural engineer you have affinity with mechanics. You will be able to deepen your theoretical knowledge after which you can apply it in the production process. You will be responsible for the design where you need to fit a cyclist and drive line into a small space, while optimizing weight and stiffness and ensuring that the VeloX is safe; even at a 100 km / h crash. Next, you will actually get started with the latest carbon processing techniques, using your own design. Do you make the right technical considerations and become the new king of the laminating room?
As an Electrical Engineer, you are responsible for implementing a Live Feedback system that measures parameters from man and machine, and to use it in a model to determine what the ideal performance will be. Then, visualize when our top athlete can start his sprint, a crucial point in the success of the record attempt. Are you ready to apply your theoretical knowledge to one of the most complex systems, human beings?
