Telemetry

The Telemetry and Data Unit, or TDU, is responsible for connecting the car with both the driver, via a Dashboard, and to the Team via a telemetry system. The information is received through the prototypes CAN Bus and distributed to the several systems via the ESP32 controller.

Input Expander

The input expander is an electronic control unit, responsible for receiving some important extra sensors like thermocouples. The sensors signal passes through filters and is processed in a microcontroller, which is also responsible for sending it to the vehicle's CAN Bus.
