The Automotive Research Center is proud to announce our 20th Annual Program Review. We are a U.S. Army Center of Excellence for the modeling and simulation of ground vehicles, led by the University of Michigan. We focus on basic scientific problems associated with management of power and energy within vehicles, mobility and survivability of the complete vehicle system, including the human operator.
A variety of alternative transportation fuels exist and technologies to utilize these fuels are evolving rapidly. This event will explore the intersection of options, opportunities, and the Michigan companies that are leading the effort with technology development.
