Formula Bharat

An Indian Formula Student competition

Academy Online 2022 – “All About Software”

Software in the mobility industry has grown in leaps and bounds to support all kinds of development. From design to computational fluid dynamics to calibration to virtual vehicle testing, software has been one of the key reasons for the acceleration of the industry into the realm of autonomous vehicles.

In this edition of the Formula Bharat Academy, we have engaged with industry partners and with those in academia to present on topics relevant to software in mobility. The purpose of this online event that spans over three Saturdays in August 2022, is to provide those who have their basics covered, to explore further and increase their scope of knowledge in the software domain.

Note: The level of topic presentations are intermediate. Participants are required to have basic understanding of manufacturing, vehicle dynamics and some knowledge of FEA and CFD, in order to gain the full potential of the topics being presented. Please keep this in mind while registering for the event.
