Electric Vehicle Opportunities

    The electrification of cars is a modernization of vehicles, which presents an opportunity to expand their utility. The electric vehicle has become a platform that researchers at UTEV are leveraging to introduce a plethora of new uses for vehicles, including using on-board or stationary chargers to provide power from the electric vehicle battery to the grid to provide grid support functions or power homes.

    • Using vehicle electrification as a platform for multi-disciplinary collaborations among electrical, computer, mechanical, industrial and aerospace engineering researchers

    • Creating chargers that provide power from the EV battery to the grid, to homes, and to other electric vehicles

    • Developing ground-penetrating radar to enhance vehicle self-localization in dense urban areas, improving autonomous performance and driver safety
