Student Hybrid Car Project Could Bring Millions to Tennessee University
from Fox News
Could the next Gatorade be a hybrid car? That's what one professor at Middle Tennessee State University is hoping as he looks to commercialize a plug-in hybrid conversion kit developed with the help of engineering students at the school. Charles Perry, Ph.D., a 28-year IBM veteran with "a lot" of patents to his name and current holder of the school's Russell Chair of Manufacturing Excellence, has been working with students over the past five years on a practical learning project to engineer an electric propulsion system that he says can be retrofitted onto just about any vehicle and double its fuel economy.
