Eld, a Norwegian race car

“Eld” is the race car from Revolve 2017. With 139 hp, it accelerates to 100 km/h in just 2.2 seconds.

This fall, a team of dedicated students at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway, sets out to construct a driverless electric car. It is the eighth iteration of the school’s Revolve project and the first one that Percepio sponsors.

“At Percepio, we believe students are the future and have supplied the ambitious people at Revolve with a Tracealyzer license for their entire embedded group,” says Mike Skrtic, Marketing Manager at Percepio.

The Revolve cars participate in Formula Student, a global competition where student teams compete with their cars in a series of races. Their embedded group has promised us an interview later on, when they have running code to test and debug, and next summer we will know where they finished. Until then, know that if you are studying or teaching embedded systems you too may apply for a free Tracealyzer license. See the Percepio Licensing page for details and how to apply.

By the way, Percepio also sponsors Running Snail, a German student race car team that we wrote about last year. So we may see Formula Student 2019 pitch Tracealyzer against Tracealyzer!
