UWindsor researchers highlight automotive advances

Positioned in the middle of Narayan Kar’s lab sits an electric motor from the Ford Motor Company: a machine that had been scrutinized by researchers and engineers for countless hours.

Yet, the University of Windsor engineering professor has set out to take that motor and make it even better.

“Our work will never end and this will always be an open-ended problem,” said Dr. Kar. “There will always be an opportunity to make them lighter, compact and more efficient.”

Providing energy for developing world aim of local company

PhD student Anas Labak worked through an entire night assembling a new portable solar-powered digital LED lighting system for his industrial partners at a local manufacturing firm. The fact that he was able to see what he was doing for all that time – unlike the potential customers the system is aimed at – wasn’t lost on him, or his partner.

“There are two billion people in the world who don’t have any energy at all,” said Steve Pokrajac, president of Tesla Digital Lighting Systems.
