Forze is a group of around 70 students at the Delft University of Technology. The team focuses on the development and promotion of new sustainable technology and since 2008, the team has built six hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. The entire project is carried by team members who work voluntarily. Earlier this year, their latest car Forze VI broke the lap record for fuel cell vehicles on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring in Germany. Never before has a racing car with a hydrogen fuel cell completed the track so fast.

“Thanks to our sponsors, we are able to let the world know about the great potential of this hydrogen technology and make a clear statement about its place in the automotive industry”, says Mart van Rijsingen, Chief Electronics and Bodywork, Forze Team, Delft University of Technology. “IAR Embedded Workbench has an intuitive and very user-friendly IDE and it has helped us a lot in structuring our software and filtering errors out. The included debugger performs code checks in a very powerful way to make sure the code is doing what we expect it to do.”
