Racing cars with mbed


William Jessup Salisbury from Tufts Hybrid Racing Team has written a blog about using mbed NXP LPC1768 Microcontroller as a critical part of the management system of their hybrid racecar - THR12.

The team are taking part in the Formula Hybrid International Challenge where college and university students to design, build, and compete high-performance hybrid and electric vehicles. He writes about how the THR12 features four independent mbeds: a Control Node, a Human-Computer Interaction Node and two Sensor Nodes all communicating over a CAN Bus.

Great to see mbed being used for such a crucial part of their racecar. We wish them the very best for the race!
