Team Description   The EcoCar team at the University of Washington is proud to bring together students from across engineering, business, communications, and design to work toward a 4 year goal of advancing sustainable technology for everyone.   As a Seattle institution innovation and sustainability are in our city and our school’s DNA. One of our greatest resources as a team is our access to the bevy of tech, engineering, and software companies in our vibrant and rapidly growing city. Our team members have worked for and gone on to work for local companies like Amazon and Boeing as well as for competition sponsors like GM.   The UW team is striving to customize a Chevy Camaro to develop a functioning (semi) autonomous, hybrid electric vehicle that not only fulfills competition requirements but goes above and beyond to enhance the riding experience for consumers. Last year at the end of competition the UW team won First Place in the Siemens PLM Software Excellence Award and we hope to build on that success with the momentum of a brand new competition.   We want to use this as an opportunity to not only challenge ourselves and our skillsets, but also to change the world for the better by advancing accessible, sustainable, and consumer focused technology.     Team Members   Faculty Advisors: Prof. Robert Bruce Darling   Prof. Linda Bushnell   Prof. Brian Fabien   Project Manager: Manny Mercado   Katerina Mikhaylyuta   Engineering Manager: Aman Kalia   Communications Manager: Griffin Barchek     PSI leads: Dylan Day   Livia Anderson   Jake Madian   George Loeppky   CSMS Lead: Thaniel Scrimshire   Carlos Sama   CAVs Lead: Drew Scott   Max Thompson
