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.
