The electrical team is divided into three sub-teams dealing with unique aspects of the car. Software handle all human-machine interfacing as well as telemetry and inter-vehicle communication. Power Systems handle the design and execution of the battery management system, pre-charge unit, and energy distribution. Hardware deals with the assembly of the solar array as well as design of the Maximum Power Point Tracker and all other hardware in the car. Many members are a part of multiple sub-teams spanning both the electrical and mechanical teams.
