Announcing the University partner program

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is well known for its hands-on project, eCARus, in which 60 students each session work on improving the design of an eCARus electric car. The eCARus program is student-led, with the participants organizing the project and handling development of all technical aspects from power transmission to IT.

Elektrobit is pleased to again sponsor eCARus. Since 2013, students have used EB GUIDE to develop the eCARus HMIs. One of their latest achievements is the development of the eCARus-GUI, in which they used EB GUIDE to implement new features, like in-vehicle display of the battery level, warning lights, the handbrake state, and other information.
