PULSE running in the 2013 Emerald Coast Electrathon

Teardrop Shape: PULSE was orignially planned to be in the shape of a teardrop. This shape was chosen because of its ability to be very aerodynamic. Time ran short though and the body was never finished.

Telemetry: The vehicle is planned to have telemetry so that information can be transmitted between the driver and the people in the dugout without having to divert the driver's attention away from her own safety.

36 Volt System: The students wanted to be able to get the maximum amount of volts out of their batteries while staying under the maximum weight limit for the batteries.

PULSE has since been retired due to the multiple flaws it had.
