EcoCAR3: An Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition

EcoCAR 3 is the latest U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition (AVTC) series. As North America’s premier collegiate automotive engineering competition, EcoCAR 3 is challenging 16 North American university teams to redesign a Chevrolet Camaro to reduce its environmental impact, while maintaining the muscle and performance expected from this iconic American car.

Model-Based Design concepts are used by teams in key areas of plant modeling, control design and tuning, data analysis, and industrial grade Model-Based Design development process elements.
