Earlier this month, the Rose-Hulman EcoCAR team participated in an Advanced Transportation Systems (ATS) open house on campus that featured the school’s automotive and aeronautical competition teams.
At the ATS event, it was announced that the Rose-Hulman engineering departments have been awarded donations from several EcoCAR sponsors including: General Motors Company, The MathWorks, Freescale Semiconductor, Siemens, National Instruments, Snap On Tools, Vector CANtech and Woodward MotoTron Control Solutions.
The school’s EcoCAR team was also excited to learn that EnerDel Inc., an advanced lithium-ion battery maker, is donating an innovative, high-performance battery system for the team’s hybrid vehicle. And the love doesn’t stop there! The Duke Energy Foundation, ON Semiconductor, Delphi, the Alcoa Foundation and ArcelorMittal are showing their love for the program by making financial donations to help with project development costs.
The event generated significant exposure for Rose-Hulman’s ATS programs and as a result, coverage was secured in the following local outlets: WIBC-Indianapolis, Inside Indiana Business, Terre Haute Tribune-Star and WTHI-TV!
