Matter, an electric mobility startup has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with IIT Bombay. This initiative will provide support to IIT Bombay’s racing team in the design and manufacture of an electric Formula-style race car.
This car will be on display at Formula Student UK FS, one of Europe’s most prestigious motorsport competitions. It was designed and built by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
Matter will provide technical support for the development, including its testing facility for components and technologies, such as the 4Q Dyno motor controller testing facility, the testing facility for the BMS testing, powerpack, cell characteristic testing, and the component development facility.
Both sides will look into the possibility of further collaboration in the areas of power electronics safety, chargers, and DCDC converters.
