The Michigan Tech Mobile Lab is currently at TARDEC (U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center) in Warren, Michigan, delivering six professional development short courses in Instrumentation and Experimentation, Hybrid Electric Vehicles and High Voltage Safety.
Classes involve a mix of direction instruction, hands on activities, demonstrations and lab exercises. Students will have a chance to operate a propulsion system dynamometer test cell, experience the differences between different HEV architectures, build their own signal conditioning circuits, as well as perform a high voltage battery removal.
The students are composed of design and test engineers and technical staff. Instructors include Jeremy Worm, Chris Morgan, Darrell Robinette, Lucia Gauchia, Wayne Weaver and Ron Butler.
