Last Friday, our team participated in the UW Homecoming Parade. We drove both our electric and hybrid vehicles in the parade and handed out UWGP can coolers with information about our sponsor. This was a wonderful opportunity to showcase our vehicles as well as share information about the Wisconsin Hybrid team. Our electric vehicle, the Mooventure, led the way followed by our parallel through-the-road hybrid, the Moovada.
Recently, a Mover and Shaker Award was give to Clint Carney! This award is given to team members who go above and beyond on their work for the team. Clint is the design lead for the fuel tank that will go in the Mooventure as we work to make it a hybrid. Keep up the good work!
This semester we are so excited to be sponsored by New Eagle. New Eagle specializes in hybrid and electric vehicle control systems. They help clients built control software that really speed up the process. They also work in autonomous, electro-hydraulic, and engine control products. New Eagle also provide us with expertise as we start our process to turn the Mooventure into an autonomous vehicle.
Earlier this semester we were incredibly happy to team up with Oshkosh Corporation. Thanks to one of the biggest donations in Wisconsin Hybrid’s recent history, we are proud to announce that we now have the resources to begin our Autonomous Vehicle research! This is a project that has been in the works for a long time and we couldn’t ask for a better company to support us. Oshkosh makes so many unbelievable products right here in Wisconsin. From defense vehicles like the MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (photo below), to JLG Boom Lifts that are able to reach heights of 185ft (to the left of our car is a JLG scissors lift), they are leaders in specialty vehicles. Thank you again Oshkosh, for your support of our team. We’re very excited about what the future holds! 🚘
We are very excited to work with Exact Metrology again this year! The folks at Exact Metrology are leaders in the 3D scanning industry with some of the best technology on the market at their office in Brookfield, WI. We paid them a visit last year before our car was running and we highly recommend their services. Their scanning technology was critical to getting the Mooventure rolling last year. We’d like to thank them for their continued support of what we do and can’t wait for them to come visit our shop!
We sent out an email to thank all of our sponsors and give our followers an update a couple weeks back. Click this link to check it out!
