Team Description


The Georgia Tech EcoCAR Mobility Challenge Team is made up of nearly 40 engineers, ranging from Marketing/Supply Chain to Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Our engineers, along with three specializing 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 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 as we grow our own understand and work to interact with the youth around us. 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.
