Team DescriptionThe Georgia Tech EcoCAR Mobility Challenge Team is comprised of 40 engineers, ranging from Marketing/Supply Chain to Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Our engineers, along with 3specializing faculty advisors, are continuing with this ambitious mission to transform a 2019 Chevrolet Blazer into a next-generation, environmentally friendly, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) vehicle. This process will involve adaptations of some of the automotive industry’s current areas of innovation: hybridization, electrification, Vehicle-to-X Communication, and SAE level 2 automation. The implementation and development of these technologies aim to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions, increase safety, and enhance the overall mobility experience. The Georgia Teach team is primarily student-led. We plan to contribute heavily to the next generation of automotive engineers as we grow our understanding and interact with youth. With a wealth of knowledge from our advisors, supporters, and experience from the previous EcoCAR 3 competition, our team aims to develop a strong culture of efficiency and competency in developing our students and our team’s automotive technologies.
