In addition to the coveted trophy and bragging rights, the Buckeyes become this year's best and brightest students in automotive engineering as they unlock solutions to our nation's transportation and energy challenges. The team earned 853.7 out of 1000 overall points while also taking the top spot in multiple categories including, but not limited to Project Management, Vehicle Design Review and Emissions & Energy Consumption. EcoCAR 3 is the latest Energy Department Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition (AVTC) series and challenges 16 North American university teams to redesign a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro by incorporating cutting-edge advanced powertrains as well as emerging connected and automated vehicle technologies that are helping to re-invent the future of mobility. During development and demonstration, teams must also maintain the engineering mastery and expectations of this iconic American car. EcoCAR 3 teams have four years (2014-2018) to harness those ideas into the ultimate energy-efficient, high performance vehicle. The competition included a week of rigorous safety, technical, drive quality and emissions testing of the team Camaros at GM's Milford Proving Ground in Milford, Michigan. Next, teams had several days of presentations to show judges how they have developed as the next generation of engineers and business leaders who will be better prepared for the auto industry and related careers. Presentations took place in Washington, D.C., with students judged by industry and government officials. "EcoCAR3 is a great program that fosters future generations of automotive engineers and business people, encouraging them to become true innovators," said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. "This year's winners – and all the teams – are proof of that. It's a competition that GM is proud to support." This year, the teams gained hands-on experience by building and refining their advanced technology vehicles, and incorporated an industry-standard multi-year vehicle development process. Teams were able to achieve their goal of presenting a fully integrated vehicle capable of driving in both electric and conventional mode while sustaining a charge. AVTCs have long provided a real-world training ground that transcends the traditional classroom for college students. Through EcoCAR 3, teams are able to demonstrate emerging automotive technologies to help strengthen American competitiveness. "Ohio State fully integrated their vehicle with impressive attention to details, and they managed to maintain the legacy of the Camaro while moving it into the future," said Kristen Wahl, director of the Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition at Argonne National Laboratory. "Innovative thinking and tireless devotion clearly contributed to the team's success." Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Georgia Tech took second and third place respectively. The student teams have now developed and integrated their energy efficient powertrains to maximize performance while retaining the safety and high consumer standards of the Chevrolet Camaro. In the final year of competition, teams will focus on controls refinement and market engagement. Additional sponsors joining the DOE and GM include: MathWorks; National Science Foundation; California Air Resources Board; NXP; AVL Powertrain Engineering; Robert Bosch, LLC; ETAS; PACCAR; dSPACE, Inc.; Snap-on Tools; Siemens PLM Software; GKN Driveline; Transportation Research Center (TRC, Inc.); DENSO; Champlain Cable Corp.; Woodward; Proterra; Ricardo; Mentor Graphics; New Eagle; tesa tape; Vector CANtech, Inc.; Delphi Foundation; EcoMotors; Electric Power Research Institute, Inc.; A123 Systems; Flextronics; and Samsung SDI.

(PRLEAP.COM)– According to a new series of reports on the U.S. market for diagnostic ophthalmic devices by iData Research ( www.idataresearch.com ), manufacturers are introducing new technologies into fundus camera systems, including angiography and fluorescent dye tracking. As a result, total fundus camera unit sales are moderately growing. Table mounted sales for both imaging modalities are being driven by the replacement of older technology. The natural growth of the market associated with the increase in the elderly populations which is directly correlated with the incidence of ocular disease.This market includes mydriatic and non-mydriatic fundus cameras. Each of the segments are further divided into table mounted and handheld devices. The persistent growth of the market is driven by the prevalence of age-related ocular conditions, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. However, the average selling price for the total fundus camera market will depreciate over the next several years. This decrease can partially be attributed to the influx of inexpensive handheld devices and the competitive nature of the market that is being seen across all fundus camera segments. As a result, the significantly less expensive handheld mydriatic market is strongly outpacing the unit growth of the established table mounted market. Furthermore, the table mounted market is losing ground to combination devices which incorporate fundus cameras into other ophthalmic equipment."Traditionally the non-mydriatic fundus camera has been the choice of optometrists for several reasons; it is less expensive, the additional capabilities were not used as much by optometrists, and the need for chemical pupil dilation was an inconvenience for patients post procedure," explains Jeffrey Wong, Strategic Analyst Manager at iData Research. "This is beginning to change as the increased range of capabilities offered by mydriatic cameras can also be a competitive advantage for an optometrist seeking patients."Topcon is the leading competitor in the U.S. fundus camera market. The company manufactures table mounted fundus cameras for both the mydriatic and non-mydriatic market. As part of the table mounted non-mydriatic fundus cameras Topcon manufactures the TRC-NW8®, TRC-NW8F® and the TRC-NW400®. In the mydriatic market Topcon manufactures the TRC-50DX® Series.Carl Zeiss Meditec is the second leading competitor in the U.S. fundus camera market. The company manufactures five fundus cameras, and participates in all segments of this market. Their latest fundus camera, the VISUCAM® 224 has a 24-megapixel sensor for high resolution images. Additional competitors in the U.S. fundus camera market include Canon and Kowa among others.More on the fundus camera market in the U.S can be found in a series of reports published by iData Research entitled the U.S. Market Report Suite for Diagnostic Ophthalmic Devices . The suite covers reports on the following markets: Ophthalmic coherence tomography, fundus cameras, data management systems, slit lamps, perimeters, tonometers, autorefractors/keratometers, binocular indirect ophthalmoscopes, ophthalmic ultrasound devices, wavefront abberometers, corneal topographers and optical biometers.The iData report series on ophthalmic devices covers the U.S. and 15 countries in Europe including Germany, France, the United Kingdom (U.K.), Italy, Spain, Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxemburg), Scandinavia (Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway), Portugal, Austria and Switzerland.
