As motorsport enthusiasts we are all about the true driving experience, but when it comes to our car, a simulator is just as fun! The goal of this project was to provide an interactive experience in events, as it is a great way to bond with an interested audience. Who doesn’t want to hop in and drive a formula car?
Since we communicate with the car via CAN, we have easy access to the steering wheel and pedals position. Then it’s only a matter of having the proper controller plugged into the computer where the game is being played.
We do it for fun but with Assetto Corsa we can even race in the Formula Student tracks and import our own car! For sure our drivers will have a blast when the driving practices for the 2021 season start.
