EducEco Challenge

EducEco Challenge is a competition for student teams to design, build, and drive eco-designed vehicles that race on a 13,143 km course using a minimum average speed (25km/h) while consuming as little energy as possible. The use of modeling and simulation enables teams to efficiently build and strategically race their cars. This competition gathers more than 1000 students from French and European high schools and universities.

Loren Shure, Ph.D., a principal developer at The MathWorks, discusses the use of MATLAB in curriculum and shows demonstrations from a real course on mathematical modeling that includes math and visualization as common denominators for MATLAB users.
