The UWAFT Technical Team is made up of Engineering students from theUniversity of Waterloo. The team is currently working on a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro with the goal of transforming it into a fully functional hybrid vehicle.
The team is developing a split-parallel architecture, featuring a Weber MPE 850cc turbo-charged engine, two GKN AF130-4 motors, and a 16.2 kWh A123 Energy Storage System (ESS). This configuration allows for series, parallel, and all-electric operation, depending on which is most efficient given the drive profile or demand.
To learn more about UWAFT's Technical Team and how to join, you can attend the weekly meeting which occurs every Thursday at 6:00pm at E5 2004. If you can't make it, you can also send us an email.
