We are a community of engineering students and professionals who are passionate about motorsports and pushing the boundaries of automotive technology. As part of our commitment to safety and fair competition, we rely on a team of dedicated scrutineers to ensure that each vehicle competing in our event meets our high standards.
Who is scrutineer?
As a scrutineer, you will be responsible for inspecting the technical aspects of each vehicle, including its design, construction, and safety features. This is a critical role in the competition, as the safety of the drivers and spectators depends on the scrutineers’ ability to identify potential hazards and ensure that each vehicle is compliant with the rules and regulations of the competition.
In addition to ensuring safety, scrutineers play an important role in promoting innovation and engineering excellence. By providing feedback and guidance to the teams, scrutineers help foster a culture of continuous improvement and help push the boundaries of automotive technology.
The electric scrutineer plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and compliance of electric vehicles competing in the Formula Student competition. Their primary responsibility is to inspect the electrical systems of the vehicle and ensure that they comply with the competition’s rules and regulations.
During the inspection process, the electric scrutineer will check various components of the vehicle’s electrical system, such as the battery, motor, controller, and wiring. They will verify that the system is designed and constructed in a safe and reliable manner and that it complies with the competition’s technical regulations.
The electric scrutineer may also conduct various tests on the vehicle’s electrical system, such as a high-voltage insulation test, to ensure that the system is electrically safe and that there is no risk of electrical shock or other hazards.
Once the inspection is complete, the electric scrutineer will provide the team with a report detailing any issues or non-compliances identified during the inspection. The team must then rectify these issues before the vehicle can be approved for competition.
Overall, the electric scrutineer’s role is critical to ensuring the safety and compliance of electric vehicles in the Formula Student competition, and their expertise and attention to detail are essential to the success of the event.
The mechanical scrutineer is tasked with checking and ensuring the safety and compliance of the mechanical components of the Formula Student competition vehicle. Their responsibilities include inspecting the suspension, steering, brakes, chassis, and bodywork, to ensure that they comply with the technical regulations and are safe to operate.
The scrutineer may conduct tests on the vehicle to verify that it meets the required safety standards. For example, they may perform a roll hoop test to check its structural integrity.
After completing the inspection, the mechanical scrutineer will provide a detailed report of any issues or non-compliances found during the inspection. The team must address these concerns before the vehicle is allowed to compete.
The mechanical scrutineer’s expertise and attention to detail are critical to ensuring that the mechanical components of the Formula Student competition vehicle are safe and compliant with the rules and regulations.
