Formula Student China (FSC) was held in Zhuhai, China in November 2019 with about 2,000 students attending, supported by hundreds of volunteer judges, inspectors and other helpers from industry. Sixty Formula Electric teams and twenty Formula Autonomous teams competed for the best design judging scores as well as on-track performance. Siemens Digital Industries Software again had a booth plus many workshops on technical topics ranging from autonomous driving simulator best practices to wiring harness design, 3D CAD, embedded software, and printed circuit board design.
Siemens is pleased to support Liaoning University of Technology’s excellent team that fielded two cars in Electric and Autonomous classes, with software grants and support. LUT earned an impressive first place overall win in the most challenging of all Formula Student disciplines – Formula Autonomous.
Siemens actively supports FSC teams with software grants and training
Siemens workshops included best practices for printed circuit board design (PADS Professional), Autonomous driving simulation (PreScan), embedded software and in-vehicle networking (Volcano), 3D CAD and Simulation (NX, STAR-CCM+), and electrical-system/wire-harness design (VeSys/Capital) software.
Automotive Industry Presence
The automotive industry supports FSC and the students by providing many judges and volunteers, plus they have booths to recruit these high-initiative students who become more valuable employess than their peers – because they gain real-world hands-on engineering experience in their FSC project.
