Updating Your Remote Emergency System (RES) Device

Category: Competition, 2022

As stated in the rule DE 7.4.2 of the Competition Handbook, all RES must be of the latest 2022 hardware revision (with e-key). Older models must be sent in to Gross-Funk in order to be upgraded.

This mainly includes a way to ensure exclusive race frequencies (e-key) and a lower risk of interference due to the increased amount of autonomous vehicles. The sales price of new RES devices will not be increased.

The upgrade is done by Groß-Funk at cost price: 350 EUR excl VAT. FSG subsidises this amount with 200 EUR per device per team to all DV teams participating in Hockenheim. Groß-Funk invoices us directly.

To let the rework run smooth, we will contact the participating teams with autonomous vehicles and assign one slots of 2 weeks each, when to send in your RES to Gross-Funk. That should run the update until end of March with the lowest downtime possible for everyone.
