EcoCAR 2 Teams Integrate Freescale Technology into their Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles

The Mississippi State University EcoCAR 2 team proudly displayed their 2013 Chevrolet Malibu at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) in Dallas, Texas earlier this week. The team was invited to display their fully-integrated center stack design that features Freescale hardware and technology and the president and CEO of Freescale, Gregg Lowe, held a live stream introduction of the vehicle to all FTF attendees.

Mississippi State University is actually one of several teams using Freescale software and hardware to develop their center stack. Most EcoCAR 2 teams use this technology to design a user interface for the vehicle’s touch screen. This screen will allow the driver to control the radio, adjust climate control, see the vehicle’s status through the touch screen implementation, and more.
