Calling all electric car geeks! Want to help improve the efficiency of electric cars? Then you might want to check out the ChargeCarPrize contest by the folks behind Carnegie Mellon’s ChargeCar project. They’re offering monthly cash prizes for the person or team that can come up with the most efficient algorithms for managing power demands using battery and super-capacitor energy sources, and an electric vehicle for the grand prize. Also, the whole project is supposed to be open source. [thanks, Doug!]
