• Successful Test Run-Through

    On Friday July 8th, HSR Enhanced had the chance for a run-through on the ETH obstacles. It was a great opportunity to test our wheelchair in another surrounding and in the presence of other teams, for example Scewo from ETH Zurich. Thanks to the enthusiasm and courage of our pilot Florian and the solid technique of the functional model, we could overcome almost all obstacles. Florian managed to overcome the tilted path, the ramp and door, the slalom and the cobblestones. We didn't try the stairs as the module is not ready yet. In this external testing, we also identified room for improvement: The steering mechanism and the door closing module need a fine-tuning.

    hmf Formenbau apprentice fabricates chassis

    HSR Enhanced and the company hmf Formenbau cooperate: Manuel Bieri, apprentice in the 4th year at hmf Formenbau, fabricates the central structural element as chassis of our race chair. This task will be the final thesis of Manuel’s apprenticeship as a Formenbauer EFZ. Manuel is supported by Sandro, our Bachelor’s student responsible for chassis development. With this cooperation, hmf Formenbau becomes a Silver Sponsor of HSR Enhanced. Thank you, and we are looking forward to the result!
