We have an important announcement concerning teams who participate at FS East with a driverless vehicle:
we’re going to use the same configuration of Remote Emergency Switch at FS East as Formula Student Germany, which has an increased, 88 mW radiation power. According to the Hungarian law using these kind of devices must be registered in advance at the National Media and Infocommunications Authority. The event organisers are going to take care of the registration, therefore no further action is required from the teams’ side.
The document upload section of the 2018 season is now available for all starter list and confirmed waiting list teams. You are able to to log in with the username and password associated with your team’s account.
There’s also been a minor update in the Documentation Rules regarding the ETC System Description document, which applies for all CV and CV DV teams:
Gergely Lágler our technical manager has written an article about the development process in the FS East history, explained what was the driving force to the success and shared some interesting personal thoughts about the current registration period as well. He is one of the key figures in the organisational team and he talks about such things like:
- The process how the starter list is already filled up
- How we started this whole thing in 2016
- The acknowledgement of FS East within the European movement
- He introduces the biggest supporters of FS East
- How we are going to deal with the expectations towards us
- The new (and final?) location of FS East
- And last but not least why this is going to be our biggest event
The whole article is available on our Press page in the Personal Notes from the Organisers section in English and Hungarian as well.
General Rules, Documentation Rules and Technical Inspection Rules are now available on our Rules & Important Documents page as the final additions of FS East 2018 Rules.
