What is BAJA ÉTS
BajaETS is a student team from École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) in Montreal, Canada that competes in the Baja SAE competition. The team is comprised of students from various engineering disciplines who come together to design, build, and race an off-road vehicle against other universities from around the world. BajaETS has been participating in the competition since 1989 and has consistently placed well, including several top 10 finishes. The team prides itself on its innovative designs, strong teamwork, and dedication to pushing the limits of off-road racing technology.
Research and Innovation
At BajaETS, integrating technology into our design is a top priority, and we're proud of our innovative approach to off-road vehicle design. In the 2017 season, we achieved another first in Baja SAE competition history: we were the first team to compete and win using an electronically actuated continuously variable transmission (EVT), which we developed in-house. This technology was a game-changer for our team, and we're thrilled to have been recognized for our hard work and dedication. To protect our innovation, the EVT technology is now patented to B-Cinq Technologies, a company funded by BajaETS alumni. We're excited to see where this technology will go in the future, and we're proud to be a part of its development.
