Wow! 5x Here's what TU/e Student Teams are Working on
The TU/e student teams test, build and develop new technologies that will change the world in the next ten years. Think of a camper van that drives entirely on solar energy or a drone that guides you out of the building in case of fire. Curious about what the future holds? In this list we put five teams in the spotlight. Read all about their plans, upcoming events and exciting vacancies.
The students of Blue Jay are developing an autonomous drone that helps to evacuate people in case of fire. This year they collaborated with the fire department and a nursing home in Oirschot, where the first user test was conducted last month. An important question was: How can the link between the drone and the fire alarm control unit best be structured?
The final event will take place on July 8 and 9 (subject to corona measures). Then the team will present the latest drone and visitors can experience interacting with the drone. Follow the team on Instagram.
At Blue Jay you can work part-time (16 hours) or full-time (40 hours). Join the management team or the hardware team, or check out other positions.
Team CORE is researching how to recycle hard-to-process waste, think batteries and cell phones. Last year, the students unveiled their innovative oven that turns e-waste into, for example, metals for new products. Their other major project focuses on recycling impregnated wood.
Solar Team Eindhoven
Solar Team Eindhoven won the World Solar Challenge with their solar-powered family car four times in a row. However, this year the team from Eindhoven came up with something else: a small house on wheels that is completely self-sufficient. Driving, taking a shower, and making coffee on solar energy.
The unveiling of the new vehicle SHOW (Self-sustaining House On Wheels) is planned for early September. Keep an eye on the website for more info.
A comfortable, affordable and sustainable alternative to social housing, that's what Team CASA is currently building in the Brainport Smart District. The model house consists of sustainable materials such as wood and can be easily disassembled and reassembled. When the house is no longer needed, the parts can be reused elsewhere for new buildings.
In June, Team Casa will unveil their innovative house. One of the team members will move into the house together with his partner and test it in the coming period. Follow the developments on Instagram.
You can apply for positions at CASA throughout the year. At the moment, the following vacancies are open.
This team wants to make the fast charging technology of electric cars as fast as petrol car refuels. To make this challenge exciting for both students and companies and to create extreme testing conditions, the team is building an electric LMP3 race car.
In 2023, InMotion wants to demonstrate their ‘Electric Refueling’ technology during the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Their newest car will be released soon. Keep an eye on the website for more info.
