The University of Windsor is embarking on a new research project led by Engineering Professor Narayan Kar that is focused on electric vehicle drive systems. The $1.8M project will investigate ways to make improvements to electric vehicles to make them more powerful, efficient, and reliable, while also being less costly. The project’s funding will enable academic and industry partners to collaborate and will provide training opportunities for the next generation’s experts on electric vehicles. “With this project, we want to create a paradigm shift in the field of transportation electrification,” said Dr Kar. “We hope to give Canada a competitive advantage in the global marketplace.” UWindsor (ON)
