Evolution and Design of the 2003 Cornell University Engine Control Module for an FSAE Racecar 2004-01-0425
The Formula SAE (FSAE) racing event is an annual collegiate competition in which student-designed and built, open-cockpit racecars are examined and evaluated via a variety of static and dynamic events. Cornell University has been involved in the competition since 1987, and was the first team to run its own custom-built engine control module (ECM) in 1993. This paper presents the evolution of the Cornell ECM and offers a systems-level overview of the design of the third-generation Cornell ECM 2003 (ECM03) system. The ECM03 was used in the 2003 Cornell FSAE racecar, the ARG03.
