ETSEIB Motorsport

Who are we?

ETSEIB Motorsport is a team formed by undergraduate engineers, out of different disciplines, from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC Barcelona). ETSEIB Motorsport has the aim to design, build and test two different cars to compete in two categories of Formula Student:

  • Electric category
  • Driverless category


Who are we?

Driverless UPC is a division of ETSEIB Motorsport in charge of the designing, manufacturing and testing the fully autonomous car that will participate in the Driverless category. The project is a synergy of the ETSEIB and ETSETB schools.



Our long term goal is to become the best driverless Formula Student car.


The main mission of the team is to build an autonomous racing car. For that, the 27 students of Bachelor and Master Degrees in Industrial, Telecommunications, IT and Mathematical Engineering will first have to:

- Shape a well-prepared and hard-working team.
- Develop technical, team work and soft skills.
- Prepare future engineers for the upcoming challenges.

Formula Student

Formula student is a worldwide engineering competition based on designing and manufacturing a single-seater race car. It is divided in three categories: Combustion, Electric and Driverless. Moreover, all categories have two types of events: Static and Dynamic.

Static Events:

  • Business Plan Presentation
  • Cost
  • Manufacturing Event
  • Design Event

Dynamic Events:

  • Acceleration
  • Skidpad
  • Autocross
  • Endurance (CV and EV)
  • Trackdrive (DV)
  • Efficiency


In one year, the Driverless Team have competed in 3 competitions of Formula Student: FSG (Germany), FSC (Czech Republic) and FSS (Spain).
