BRUIN RACING BAJA
What is Bruin Racing Baja?
Bruin Racing Baja competes in the Baja SAE competition, hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Every year, student engineers design and build an offroad vehicle to compete in harsh environments ranging from desert to swamp. Their car emphasizes reliability, featuring a custom electromechanically-actuated continuously variable transmission (ECVT) system and four-wheel drive.

The Suspension subteam engineers the car's interaction with the road, optimizing our suspension geometry through the lens of vehicle dynamics.
Electronic's purpose is to design and implement sensors and other electronics both on and off the Baja car for the purpose of collecting data to be used in designing future cars, as well as tuning the current car.
The ECVT team is developing a custom actuated CVT dictated by a controls scheme to autonomously shift and change its gear ratio in order to maintain our engine at its optimal, highest power-output speed.
The business leads are in charge of budgeting, corporate partnerships and acquiring sponsorships, applying for funding.
The Driver Interface subteam connects the driver to the car, through steering, braking, and ergonomic design.
