Revolve NTNU Team Interview

Introduce your team briefly
Revolve NTNU was founded in 2010 and was the first Norwegian Formula Student Team. We developed two combustion cars, before switching to electric in 2014 and had our first 4WD electric car in 2016. Since 2017, we have been developing both an autonomous and an electric race car each year. This year, we are producing our 10th car, which will drive both manually and autonomously.
Tell us about your team’s history with Formula Student
We attended our first competition at Formula Student UK in 2012, where we won Newcomer Of The Year and got 17th place overall. Since then, we have been on 19 podiums across the various disciplines and have been ranked in the World’s top 10 teams six times.
What does joining Formula Student Netherlands mean to you?
Joining FSN is a brilliant opportunity to test the car at an early stage in the summer. This way, we get to really see what needs to be improved on before other competitions.
What are your main goals for this year?
Our main goal is to have a good overall result in FSG, and to do that, we are focusing on reliability. We hope to reach this goal by sustaining theoretical knowledge, aiming to be on the podium for Engineering Design and be in the top 5 in all dynamic events at all competitions.
What made you think of/choose FSN?
This will be the first time we compete so early in the summer, as well as the first time we compete in FSN. FSN is known to be a really good competition and we are really looking forward to take part in it.
 
What makes you different from the other teams?
We are proud of being a diverse team with members from various of University majors and nationalities. The knowledge and skills within our team, as well as with a strong alumni culture, help us reach our goals year after year. We are truly accelerating our member’s future careers.
What is your most significant achievement in Formula Student so far?
Competition-wise, we had our best year so far in 2018. That year, we got 2nd place overall at FSG and FS Austria.
Do you think there are any positive outcomes for the competition from the current situation?
The COVID-19 situation has challenged everyone to think of innovative ways of getting jobs done, as well as finding new ways to communicate effectively with each other. We believe the situation has shed light on areas we otherwise wouldn’t have noticed needed improvement.
Describe your car in three words
Excellence, precision and innovative.
