Formula SAE Timing & Scoring uses passive RFID tags to all cars competing in competitions hosted by SAE International in addition to the required MYLAPS transponder for Endurance outlined in the Formula SAE rules. All teams are required to have an RFID tag mounted on their vehicle for competition in 2021.
If your team previously competed in 2019 or prior, any RFID tag your team would have been given by SAE staff at student registration will work and should be used again. Check your previously built vehicles and make sure to grab that RFID tag before heading to competition!
Tags will be functionally checked and linked to your car number at Brake Check. If you are a new team this year, SAE staff will be able to provide you with a RFID tag to keep and reuse for future years. We will have limited supply onsite so if you are a team who has misplaced your tag please try to find it.
Information on why we use RFID tags and how to ensure to mount them properly to your vehicle can be found online by referencing the technical bulletin on “How To: Mount RFID tags” under Series Resources – Tech Insp References.
