  • Title: USCAR: Who We Are
    Descriptive info: The United States Council for Automotive Research LLC (USCAR) was founded in 1992.. USCAR is composed of a number of specialized groups that focus on specific research areas.. These research teams work to:.. accelerate technical development,.. provide a common voice to the supply base,.. increase the value of research investments,.. improve quality.. and reduce the cost for noncompetitive technologies and activities.. These goals are often accomplished through partnerships with various stakeholders including the federal government, educational institutions and suppliers.. USCAR demonstrates the power of collaboration.. It enables the U.. automakers to do great things efficiently and effectively.. Individually, these same tasks would be far more difficult, potentially redundant, and in many instances, impossible to achieve as quickly by individual companies.. History.. The United States Council for Automotive Research LLC (USCAR) was announced in 1992, but its evolution began years earlier.. Historically, technical collaboration involving the U.. automakers - Chrysler, Ford and General Motors was unthinkable because they dominated the U.. market and viewed each other as tough competitors.. Also, antitrust laws strongly discouraged U.. businesses from working together.. As automotive markets began to globalize, Congress provided an opportunity for a wide range of research development collaborations involving industrial competitors by passing the 1984 Cooperative Research Act.. With competition from both Japanese and European automakers intensifying, Chrysler Group LLC, Ford and GM recognized that technical collaboration was already occurring among their overseas competitors and that it made good business sense for themselves as well.. In the late 1980s, a common technology need was the development of lightweight materials to improve fuel economy.. Thus, the U.. automakers created the Automotive Composites Consortium (ACC) in 1988 to work together on the emerging need for composites.. ACC's success spawned more consortia to address other technical issues, including advanced batteries and vehicle recycling.. By 1992, it was clear that a management group was needed to serve as a coordinating research hub - and the United States Council for Automotive Research LLC (USCAR) was formed to oversee the collaborative research development efforts.. In the fall of 1993, USCAR teamed together with the federal government under the Clinton administration and formed the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles (PNGV).. PNGV's goal was to improve national manufacturing competitiveness, implement technologies to increase the efficiency of conventional vehicles and develop technologies for a new class of vehicles with up to three times the fuel efficiency of a mid-size family sedan without sacrificing its performance, affordability, utility, safety and comfort.. Each of the U.. automakers created concept vehicles that achieved the fuel-efficiency mark, advancing new technologies as part of the process.. Building on the success of PNGV, the program transitioned to FreedomCAR under the Bush administration  ...   partnership to facilitate technological research and technology policy analysis focused on improving the manufacturing competitiveness of the U.. automotive industry.. The US A-TEAM (U.. Alliance for Technology and Engineering for Automotive Manufacturing) is a strategic partnership between USCAR and the U.. Department of Commerce s Technology Administration (including the department s National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST]).. It focuses on improving the manufacturing competitiveness of the U.. Throughout its history, USCAR has facilitated numerous cutting-edge and innovative R D programs, and its organizational structure has evolved accordingly.. In spring 2005, USCAR Council created an organizational structure composed of a three-member executive Leadership Group and nine Technical Leadership Councils to oversee the extensive portfolio of research being conducted by nearly 30 consortia, teams and working groups.. Additionally, USCAR leadership council members strategize and initiate expansion into new areas of collaboration.. With R D programs ranging from energy storage and materials to aerodynamics and manufacturing, the research portfolio continues to expand.. Key USCAR Milestones.. Date Formed:.. ACC..

USCAR is governed by the three-member USCAR Council, whose membership includes the R D vice presidents from each of the U.. automakers.. The Council members create value for their respective companies through their collective leadership.. They establish USCAR policy, appoint representatives to various teams and provide strategic direction and guidance to the organization.. The USCAR Council members are:.. Mircea Gradu, vice president Powertrain, Transmission and Driveline Engineering, head of Virtual Analysis, Chrysler Group LLC.. Paul Mascarenas, chief technical officer, vice president, Ford Research and Innovation.. Jon Lauckner, General Motors vice president and chief technology officer.. The USCAR Leadership Group reports to the Council and includes the.. USCAR Executive Director.. as well as an executive from each member company.. The Leadership Group translates policies and strategies from the Council into actionable items and assigns these items to the appropriate teams.. The Leadership Group is responsible for overseeing all USCAR operations and collaborative activities..

  • Title: USCAR: U.S. DRIVE Electrical & Electronics Tech Team
    Descriptive info: DRIVE Electrical Electronics Tech Team (EETT).. Achieving energy independence will depend upon developing hybrid-electric and fuel cell vehicles that are economically justifiable for the average consumer.. Core to this effort will be the development of power electronics and electrical machines as key enabling technologies for propulsion systems.. This will require reducing the production cost of current automotive electric traction systems by a factor of four.. The cost/ease of integrating electric traction systems into vehicle platforms must be significantly improved.. This dictates a size reduction of over 50%  ...   technology, system integration will also be essential to reduce part count and to improve reliability, durability and producibility.. As technology moves from gasoline hybrids to fuel cell electric vehicles, the Electrical and Electronics Technical Team (EETT) is challenged with advancing the technologies required to make electrically driven transportation preferred to today's petroleum-fueled vehicles.. The team will encourage the national research community and industry to focus on developing technologies that will lead to the commercial viability of electric propulsion in the future.. to view the EETT's technical roadmap..
