“FAST LANE: NASCAR Engineering”
Dr. Robert Prucka, Clemson University
Motorsports have traditionally been a source of new technologies that benefit passenger car safety, performance, and design. As a continuous source of innovation, motorsports have been heavily supported by automotive manufacturers for over a century. As the automotive industry invests billions of dollars to produce both electrified and autonomous vehicles it is important for the survival of motorsports that they remain at the forefront of these technologies. This talk will provide a look into recent projects at the Clemson University – International Center for Automotive Research and around the world that are helping to shape the future of motorsports. Examples from Clemson University’s Deep Orange educational program will be used to highlight motorsports innovations that are happening right here in Greenville, South Carolina.
Robert Prucka is the Alan Kulwicki Professor of Motorsports Engineering within the Department of Automotive Engineering and the Deputy Director of the Virtual Prototyping of Autonomy-Enabled Ground Systems Center (VIPR-GS) at the Clemson University
