SAE: Micro-Electric Vehicle Competition
Following are the rules of competition for this year’s SAE Detroit Section Micro-Electric
Vehicle Competition. For those not familiar with the event, there are three award
categories in the competition: Design, Performance, and Overall School Final Results.
The Design Competition is based on a written paper and an oral presentation. The
Performance Competition is a multi-heat, double elimination head-to-head race. The
Overall School Final Results Competition is based on accumulated point totals per
school from both the Design and Performance events. Teams must build a vehicle to be
powered by one AA alkaline battery capable of pulling a weighted trailer up a steep
incline faster than the other competitors to advance.
Please pay special attention to some of the sections of the rules because we changed
the way we score the Overall Competition. In past years, there have always been two
different competitions at the event – Performance and Design Competitions. Our
committee had three goals in mind when we started talking about changing the event:
make the event shorter from start to finish, eliminate the need for multiple judging
panels, and find a way to integrate the Design and Performance Competitions into the
Overall School Final Results.
To accomplish these goals, the following changes were made:
• The Design Competition papers must be submitted to the SAE Detroit Section at
least three weeks prior to the competition (Wednesday, April 13, 2016)
• The competition committee will score the papers and invite the top 15 to 20
competitors to give the oral presentation at the event
• Oral presentations will be permitted only by the invited teams; invitations will be
sent at least seven days before the competition
• The top three finishers in the Design Competition will be awarded Design points,
to be added to the Performance Competition in order to obtain final overall
results. For First Place in design, (4) points will be added to the Performance
Competition. For Second Place, (2) points will be awarded and for Third Place,
(1) point will be added
