Automotive Club RUN TO YOU

November 2012 – February 2015

Project Leader

Summary

Being able to experience the various parts of the automobile development process and the comprehensive operation of an organization, my time at the Automotive club – RUN TO YOU – had some of the most exciting experiences of my undergraduate years. It was the turning point in my life in which I obtained a solid vision of innovating in the transportation industry as an entrepreneur. This vision led me to the current path of investigating robot autonomy and autonomous vehicles.

A summary of my work at RUN TO YOU are listed below:

  • Comprehensive project management of the ‘Behemoth’ project from its initiation to its completion. Managed recruiting, plans, budgets, outsourcing, promotion, and exhibition.
  • Managed the Frame team, responsible for designing and fabricating the frame body of Behemoth via cutting and welding.
  • Renovated Sonador, the off-road vehicle for Baja racing.
  • Participated in the Design team as a member, and assisted the team in designing Behemoth, as well as establishing the brand identity of RUN TO YOU.
  • Managed and motivated team members to pursue entrepreneurship in the automotive industry.

 

You can find a more detailed explanation of my works on project Behemoth at its specific portfolio page. Below, I attached a video of a drive on Sonador after its renovation. It was the first time I had ever driven a car (before obtaining my driver’s license), on a vehicle made with my own hands!

Our club and Behemoth were introduced in SNU Press (in Korean). In the interview, I talked about a vision of making a personal mobility vehicle portable enough to ride and carry around in daily life. After the interview, I kept proposing and testing my ideas on personal mobility in other projects (BMW Presentation, Optimal Balancing Control). I wish to continue my passion for studying and making feasible materialization of the future personal mobility.
