Each year, at the conclusion of the EcoCAR advanced vehicle technology competition, dSPACE presents a special award to university team participants for demonstrating the most effective use of dSPACE tools. At an awards ceremony held June 4, 2015, in Seattle, Washington, the dSPACE Embedded Success award was presented to the following teams in recognition of their outstanding accomplishments:

First Place: Ohio State University

  • Most thorough approach to developing a testing environment for their supervisory controls
  • Reflects industry practices the best
  • Full coverage of V-cycle from requirements to MIL, SIL, and HIL, with an outstanding understanding of real-world vehicle systems and electronics

In addition to earning the dSPACE Embedded Success first-place honor, OSU was also the first-place winner of the overall year-one EcoCAR 3 competition for demonstrating all-around excellence. See story.

Second Place: Virginia Tech

  • Sound strategy for plant model development balancing fidelity with testability, demonstrating a good understanding of what is needed for effective HIL
  • Excellent approach to validating their plant models, with a clear well-written submission

Third Place: Mc Master University

  • Well-described and detailed plant modeling and Soft ECU development approach, which will support HIL testing well in year 2 – impressive for a first-time school

Congratulations to these exceptional teams!
