The Georgia Tech EcoCAR Mobility Challenge Team is made up of nearly 40 engineers, primarily from mechanical, electrical, and computer science backgrounds. These engineers, along with three specializing faculty advisors, have begun an 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 Level 2 Partial Automated Driving.
Implementation and development of these technologies are targeted with the primary goals of improving fuel economy, reducing emissions, increasing safety, and enhancing the overall experience of mobility.
The Georgia Teach team is primarily student-led, and we plan to contribute heavily to the next generation of automotive engineers. 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.
