November- The URE15 Unveiled!
The month November was largely devoted to the rollout of the URE15. Finally, we are able to share pictures and videos of our latest racecar. For over a year we have been working furiously to design and produce the URE15, and finally, we are able to show the end result to the world. 
The reveal
On the 23rd of November, promptly at 19.00, the URE15 was finally revealed to the world. This year, it was not done by having a reveal event on the Eindhoven University of Technology campus, but via an online live event. 
After a short recap of how the URE15 year went past, which was quite eventful due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the moment was finally there. With all team members, friends, family, and supporters sitting glued to the screen, the URE15 was shown in its full glory. The entire team, and of course the board which had put in countless hours into the car were all ecstatic. To celebrate this milestone, champaign was popped to enjoy it even more. 

After this moment, all technical advancements of the car were shown in more detail. The URE15 is a convertible car, being able to transform from manual Electric to Driverless mode. It was revealed in Electric mode, however a lot of improvements were also gained in the autonomous systems of the car. Where we had to focus a lot on reliability throughout last year, we can now focus on performance. The team is excited to make this next step and is pushing hard to make the car as fast as possible.

Production & development
With the URE15 revealed, the production and development of the car does not stop here. A part of the aerodynamic package will first still needs to be produced and tested. This is already in full swing.

Furthermore, there will be some major changes made to our final drive. This is done in order to balance the power and speed output of our motors, and make a first step towards a new concept which can also be used during next year's car. In the meantime, the motors will be thoroughly tested on our motor testbench. Here we can make very precise measurements about the performance of our self-developed motors and perfectly tune our motor controllers. The information coming from the tests can then also be used as an input for the new design for the motors of next year.
Looking forward
With the URE15 revealed to the world, the team will not stand still. First of all, the coming months will be in the light of testing, testing and more testing. This way we are able to get all small bugs out of the system and make the car very reliable. This will first of all be done in manual mode. This makes the debugging process of the car easier and faster. In the coming month, we will convert the car to its driverless form. All new systems and algorithms will then be put to the test for the first time on the URE15.
