Connected and Automated Vehicle

We give the car a brain of its own. Our focus is on software development for autonomous driving systems and vehicle communication.


Our team is composed of Computer Science majors as well as Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering students.

The PCM team develops algorithms that optimize the performance of our hybrid electric vehicle, as well as create mathematical models of vehicle subsystems.


Our team is composed of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Industrial Systems, and Applied Math majors.

Propulsion Controls & Modeling

Propulsion Systems Integration 

The PSI team gets the most hands-on with the car out of all of the EcoCAR teams. We assemble and integrate components into the car, as well as help our controls team calibrate the vehicle.


Our members come from in the Mechanical, Electrical, Industrial, Civil, and Aerospace Engineering majors.


   The HMI & UI/UX team focuses on user-vehicle interaction performing design studies, building prototypes both in hardware and software and conducting usability studies for iterative improvement.

Our team is composed mainly of Human Centered Design & Engineering, and Informatics students. However, we are open to other disciplines.


Our communications team takes care of all things non-engineering. Our members gain experience in marketing, media management, and develop strong writing skills.


We are looking for undergrad or graduate students majoring in Communications, Business, or any other relevant Humanities majors, with an interest in cars and sustainability.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or inquiries regarding our teams.
