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.
