Running in the 2013 Emerald Coast Electron, Pulse used a 36 volt system. The team designing Pulse did not complete the construction of the vehicle in time, leading to multiple flaws. Due to defects in the design they managed to complete instead of the original plan, Pulse retired.
The vehicle was 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. 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, ending with a 36 volt system.
