The question that drives us: How can we build the most efficient vehicle possible?
Our mission: DEV seeks to enable more sustainable transport by inventing future electric vehicle technologies.
DEV competes in the annual Shell Eco-Marathon in an effort to push the technological boundaries of electric transport.
We want to engage and inspire forward-thinking individuals on opportunities in electric mobility through creative engineering.
We're proud of the progress we've made in our student organization. After we graduate, we hope to take lessons from these projects into our professional careers.
Our live telemetry system aggregates data that we use to modify driver strategy. This single feature helped improve our performance by nearly 10% during the competition.
Our vehicle improvements have resulted in significantly greater performance every year. Each year demands more design creativity than the previous one. We work hard on aerodynamic, electronic, material, and software aspects of the vehicle.
