OSU Presents at the 2009 SAE Powertrains, Fuels and Lubes Meeting

Last month, the OSU EcoCAR team attended the 2009 SAE Powertrains, Fuels and Lubes meeting in San Antonio, Texas.

At the event, six EcoCAR students gave a presentation called, “Tomorrow’s Vehicles by Tomorrow’s Engineers: Design, Simulation, and HIL Results from Year 1 of the EcoCAR Challenge.” The students discussed the lessons they learned in Year 1 of the competition, including the rapid development of hybrid architectures and the implementation of hardware-in-the-loop simulation.

Brad Cooley and John Kruckenberg represented Ohio State at the meeting and students from Embry-Riddle, Georgia Tech and the University of Waterloo also participated. 

The OSU team was thrilled to be given the opportunity to attend the meeting and interact with industry experts. For more information about the students’ presentation and the other sessions at the SAE Powertrains, Fuels and Lubes meeting, click here!
