From October 11-15, EcoCAR teams traveled in 2 separate waves to the General Motors Milford Proving Ground to participate in Vehicle Technical Inspections (VTI) for the Workshop and Vehicle Event (WAVE). Each team’s 2019 Chevrolet Blazer had the opportunity to be inspected by a robust group of competition inspectors. The teams have now returned to their respective universities and are on track to be able to self-certify for on-road testing.
Each team also had the opportunity to participate in Connected and Automated Vehicle Connectivity training. This brought together all EcoCAR teams for hands-on training on Cohda MK5 radios. The students learned methods for simulating and on-road testing of various V2X connectivity systems. Teams will now be able to test V2X systems on their vehicle by simulating connected signalized intersections at their local test facilities.
