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.”
