Held May 18-23, 2012, EcoCAR 2 teams, sponsors, and organizers will head to sunny Los Angeles, California for the finale of Year One of the competition series. Over the six day competition, teams will participate in and present more than a dozen static events for $100,000 in cash prizes!
Year One of the competition series has emphasized the engineering and design of the teams’ vehicles, including selecting and modifying their designed vehicle architecture as well as control strategy development through the use of controller hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tools. Teams have also designed major subsystems, including hybrid powertrain, energy storage, thermal management and high power electrical systems.
Throughout the six day competition, EcoCAR 2 teams will put their design to the test, giving presentations to industry and government professionals based on their mechanical, electrical, control, and HIL strategies, project initiation approval, outreach and business plans and trade show display.
Over the next few days, EcoCAR 2 will announce the special venue locations for several competition events, including Welcome Night, the Outreach Luncheon, and the Awards Ceremony. So check back on the Green Garage Blog for daily updates on the competition!
