It all came together at the last minute, but we made it happen. We took the car successfully to Cecil Spaceport in Jacksonville for testing today. There were a few bugs, but we were able to complete 0-60, braking, most of drive quality, and hit 70mph down the taxiway. It's been a long journey to get to this point, so thanks to everyone whose hard work made this possible!

For this #TeamMemberTuesday we hear from our Project Manager, Robert Co***lo, and his experience on EcoCAR -

“EcoCAR has provided me numerous opportunities over my years of involvement. When I had first joined the team by assisting the Project Manager, I was given knowledge on how to handle complex situations, especially involving systems that you may not be the most familiar with.

In my next role, I became the System Safety Manager (now known as the SSLE) which challenged me to provide input and solutions on problems that I had never encountered before. Building my personality in to someone more willing to take challenges head-on.

Following this, I became the Project Manager for the team moving into the brand-new competition series, EcoCAR Mobility Challenge. The challenge of building a team, a product, a plan, all from the ground up. The leadership experience I have earned throughout all these positions but especially as Project Manager will benefit me for a lifetime.

Additionally, industry holds experiences like my own in the highest regard. The opportunity for students to deal with very similar issues that they may see in their field, apply the skills outside of the classroom, and utilize the same exact tools that they do. EcoCAR is absolutely a high part of why I was able to procure opportunities at places like NASA, Boeing, SpaceX, and Northrop Grumman. Each of these companies were extremely interested in my EcoCAR experiences and my time at each brought confidence in my own ability to thrive at these companies during my career thanks to those same experiences. EcoCAR has improved job prospects, advanced careers, and brought confidence to many students like myself and this fact may be one of the most important results of this competition and what it provides.”

What a crazy and fun year between Covid-19 and a hurricane we still managed to pull off second place for “Best Final Technical Report”. We can’t wait to come back next year and work harder than ever.

Thank you to everyone for their hard work in year two!

We miss you EcoCAR! We can’t wait to get back to work on our car once everything is safe and back to normal. Until then here’s a successful startup using the MABx from @dspaceglobal
