The EcoCAR team at the University of Washington is proud to bring together students from across engineering, business, communications, and design as we work towards the goal of advancing sustainable technology for everyone. As a Seattle institution, innovation and sustainability are our city and school’s DNA. One of our team’s greatest resources is our access to the bevy of tech, engineering, and software companies like Amazon and Boeing, as well as competition sponsors such as General Motors. The UW team is striving to customize a 2019 Chevrolet Blazer, into an SAE level 2 autonomous vehicle, by implementing advanced propulsion systems, electrification, and vehicle connectivity. Our goal is to not only fulfill competition requirements but go above and beyond to enhance the riding experience for consumers and discover innovations that will lead to a more sustainable industry. The UW team wants to use the EcoCAR Mobility Challenge as an opportunity to challenge ourselves, our skill sets, and change the world for the better by advancing accessible, sustainable, and consumer-focused technology.
