Interesting in Smart Transport? go to Waterloo

The University of Waterloo is innovative.  That point is known. The latest thing they have done is further evidence of that spirit. They have opened a new department that is dedicated to “smart transportation”.

GAIA will consist of three labs: one focusing on powertrain efficiency, another on longer-lasting batteries for hybrid and electric cars, and a third lab for testing research-modified hybrid electric vehicles on rolling dynamometers.

Why is this important? It creates the opportunity for a better mix of researchers form across disciplines.
