InMotion racecar in action

Next weekend is the weekend that racing fans are looking forward to. The InMotion racecar is ready to break the electric lap record at Circuit Zandvoort. They will take the ultimate test on the 3rd and 4th of June. Last weekend was the final rehearsal. InMotion joined the most popular motorsports event in the Netherlands: The Jumbo Race Days. Over 100.000 visitors visited the stand of the racecar and watched the demo on the track. This demo both served the purpose to gain even more public awareness, as well as gathering valuable test and track data for the record-attempt next weekend during the pinksterraces. Want to see the car in action? Join the team in Zandvoort on June 3rd of 4th.

Jumbo Race Days
Due to the perfect location of the InMotion stand, that was positioned across the entrance tunnel of the paddock, over 100.000 visitors walked right into the racecar. After giving out posters, telling the story and showing the car, the InMotion team gathered a crowd as soon as they started to prepare for the track. Both days they gave a demonstration on the track. People were surprised by the silence overtaking other cars on the track. They didn’t even hear it roar down the long straight over the Finish line. That’s what the InMotion team motivates to continue: “Building an electric race car that is as attractive as other racecars, get rid of the dull image of electric vehicles and bring innovation into motorsports by using the latest technology to shake up the established order.”

Record attempt at Circuit Zandvoort
Can’t wait for the record? In the upcoming weeks InMotion will let you experience the final steps via social media, newsletters and press releases. You will get the opportunity to join them backstage in the pitbox or get a meet and greet with the engineers, managers and racing drivers. Follow them closely via #roadtozandvoort

Partnership ICT and InMotion
InMotion is an automotive race team that consists of students of Eindhoven University of Technology and Fontys University of Applied Sciences. InMotion aims to participate in the 24h race of Le Mans in 2020 with their IM01 race car. Together ICT and InMotion developed the Electronic Control Units (ECU’s) for the complete IM/e race car. ICT provides its Model based development Production Platform: Motar, consisting of the ECU’s hardware and platform software, while InMotion develops the control algorithms (application software) for these ECU’s.

InMotion record attempt at Circuit Zandvoort

After 2 years of building, 4 months of intensive testing, ups-and-downs, failures, and successes InMotion is ready to break the electric lap record at Circuit Zandvoort. They will take the ultimate test on the 3rd and 4th of June. The attempt will occur during the break, as there are various racing competitions to enjoy during the rest of the day. Everybody is welcome to come by and witness this event first hand during the Pinksterraces at Circuit Zandvoort.

InMotion at Jumbo Family Racingdays
Next to the record attempt, InMotion will drive at the Jumbo Family Racingdays, on 20th-21st of May. With over 100.000 visitors, this is the biggest motorsport event in the Netherlands. You can visit the InMotion stand at the Paddock 2, reachable with the Jumbo-tickets, and catch up with all the adventures they experienced in the last few months.

Press Release: First electric car unveiled

Already in March we announced the partnership between ICT and InMotion about the development of the Electronic Control Units (ECU’s) for the complete IM/e race car. ICT provides its Motar platform consisting of the ECU’s hardware and platform software, while InMotion develops the control algorithms (application software) for these ECU’s. Last Saturday, InMotion revealed its first electric racing car: the KP&T IM/e during the opening of the Dutch Design Week (DDW) in Eindhoven. ICT was present and pleased to see the branded fastest electrical formula racer. With a top speed of 285 km/h the KP&T IM/e belongs to the absolute world top. During the remainder of the DDW the racing car is to admire in the so-called Klokgebouw at Strijp-S in Eindhoven. http://nos.nl/artikel/2063905-studenten-bouwen-snelste-elektrische-raceauto.html Press release from InMotion More information can be found at http://inmotion.tue.nl and at https://ict.eu/markets/automotive-mobility/motar/.

PRESS RELEASE: ICT joins MathWorks Connections Program

Technology Solutions & Services Provider ICT (ICT Netherlands) is pleased to announce that it has become a member of the MathWorks Connection Program as a product partner with their product, Motar. MathWorks is the world’s leading developer of technical computing software for engineers, scientists and analysts. mathworks partnerThe MathWorks Connections Program is available to third-party organizations that develop and distribute complementary, commercially available products, training, and consulting based on MATLAB and Simulink. These partner offerings address technical needs across a wide range of applications and industries worldwide with software and hardware products that extend the usage of MATLAB and Simulink. These solutions seamlessly integrate with MathWorks products and ensure ongoing compatibility in conjunction with new MathWorks releases. With the ICT Motar-platform control engineers can have their product ready as soon as the functional model is finished. Once the Simulink model is ready, code can be generated, built and flashed on a HW target from within Simulink with the click of a button. Motar bridges the gap from model to target and leverages the MathWorks Embedded Coder. “Being a member of the MathWorks Connections Program perfectly fits in our strategy and reinforces ICT’s position as a leading system integrator in the field. Model-based development is expected to grow while evolving towards fully autonomous mobility, driving and safety, and the demand for shorter development cycles is expected to increase, which in turn will accelerate the need to bridge gaps from Model to Target.” says Eeuwke Wielinga, Business Unit Manager of ICT Automotive & Mobility. “We welcome ICT as a product and integration partner of MathWorks, we strongly believe that our mutual customers will benefit through the combined offerings from ICT and MathWorks”, says Stephan van Beek, Technical Manager, MathWorks.
