University of Victoria Wins the 1st Place MathWorks Modeling Award

Lauren Tabolinksy, Student Competition Program Specialist at MathWorks, shares her thoughts and congratulations with the winners of the Year Two MathWorks Modeling Award:

This year, MathWorks sponsored a Modeling Award for the Year Two Competition. EcoCAR 2 teams were assessed on how well they applied Model-Based Design concepts using MathWorks tools, including the key areas of plant modeling, control design and tuning, data analysis, industrial grade model-based design development process elements and lessons learned.

Eleven EcoCAR 2 teams participated in the MathWorks Modeling Award this year, and in the end, the University of Victoria took home the top prize. They used online and offline parallel optimization of fuel economy at the vehicle level and MathWorks was very impressed with the enthusiasm and professionalism of the student presenters.

MathWorks would also like to congratulate Mississippi State University and Ohio State University, who won 3rd and 2nd place respectively.

On behalf of MathWorks, congratulations to all of the teams who participated in the Modeling Award this year. We were very impressed with the quality of the presentations!
