What Year One of EcoCAR 3 is All About

Throughout the four years of the EcoCAR 3 Competition the emphasis will be specifically on design, integration, development and market engagement as the students bring their advanced technology vehicles to fruition. The first year of the competition focuses entirely on design. By using provided software tools, teams will learn how to best model and simulate their ideal vehicle architecture to later integrate into the Chevrolet Camaro. In Year One, teams use the same types of software that is currently utilized in industry, in order to provide them with a truly hands-on learning experience.

By using Software-in-the Loop systems, teams can best simulate and test their designs to help them develop their plan for the next three years of the competition.
