Driving into the future

Aa the automotive induatry rebounds
from the receaaion and responda to
demanda for more fuel-efficient vehi-
cles, University students and fatuity
are helping to create an environmen-
tally friendly car of the future.
Formed to participate in the EcoCar
2 Collegiate Advanced Vehicle Tech-
nology Competition, members of the
University's EcoCar Team are work-
ing to design and build s car that mini-
mizes gas emissions while maintaining
performance and utility, according to
Heath Hofmann, an associate professor
of electrical engineering and computer
science and the team's co-adviser.
Sponsored by the US. Department
of Energy and General Motors, the
three-year competition features 16 cho-
sen teams from various universities in
North America.

According to Hoffman, the first
year of the competition is devoted to
the design, modeling and simulation of
the vehicle. The team will then receive
a stock vehicle and spend. the next
two years bringing its design to life by
utilizing components and hardware
either donated by the competition's
other aponsora, such as A123 Systems
and dSPACE, or obtained by the team
through fundraising.
Ultimately, the EcoCar team will
bring its finished product to the Gener-
al Motors proving grounds to compete
against universities in various tests
including miles per gallon, consumer
acceptability and acceleration.
According to Hoffman, the Ecu-
Car team provides opportunities for
students from all backgrounds to get
involved, especially those interested in

marketing and public outreach.
"A lot of the competition of course
focuses around engineering, but there's
also a sort of abusiness aspect to it and
also an outreach aspect to it," Hoff-
man said. "We're not only interested in
recruiting engineers to the team, we're
also interested in business majors and
communications majors."
Rackham student Michael Woon,
the team's student leader, said General
Motors has often hired students who
participated in the competition.
"To get hired might be the initial
incentive, but the reason you would
want to stay in it is because you love
what you're doing, the work is exciting,
the people that you're with is a good
group and you want to succeed," Woon
said.
