WHO:

Internet2 launches university-based initiative in conjunction with Innova UEV Inc. to provide electric vehicles to foster research projects at campuses nationwide
 

WHAT:

Four college campuses will be selected through a process coordinated by Internet2 to receive four electric vehicles, for one year at no cost
 

WHY:

To support campus sustainability research projects, to demonstrate “Internet of Things” data collection and sharing technology, and to showcase zero-emission vehicles on campus
 

HOW:

U.S. campuses may obtain application information at www.internet2.edu

 

WHEN:

Electric vehicle displayed April 7-9, 2014
 

WHERE:

Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Plaza Ballroom Foyer, Denver, Colorado

 

MEDIA DAY:

Monday, April 7 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Internet2 Info booth

 

Internet2 and Innova Inc., manufacturer of an all-electric micro vehicle, the Innova Dash, will debut a uniquely equipped University Electric Vehicle (UEV) during the Internet2 Global Summit, an international gathering of more than 800 advanced technology leaders from universities, research organizations, and industry.

The UEV model represents a new type of vehicle providing an innovative opportunity for campuses nationwide to inspire carbon footprint reduction, foster research involving sensor data, and broaden understanding of the emerging “Internet of Things” phenomenon.

“This research and demonstration project is a creative way to encourage nationwide interest in sustainability research and data collection from non traditional devices as part of the growing ‘Internet of Things,’ a term that describes objects independently communicating with each other,” said Steve Wolff, Internet2 chief technology officer and 2013 Internet Hall of Fame Inductee. “Our goals are for campuses to use this electric vehicle to enhance sustainability research involving data collection and data transfer across campus networks, and to adopt advanced identity management technologies. At the same time, the vehicles will demonstrate a low-carbon-footprint campus transportation alternative.”

“The project is part of Innova’s goal of engaging with researchers in all fields across higher education. University involvement gives campus participants an ideal dense use environment in a contained space,” said Roman Kuropas, Innova chief executive officer and UEV founder. “I am excited about discovering new applications to leverage the vehicle, the Internet2 Network and services to benefit campuses nationwide.”

The UEV will be available for general use on campus and equipped with a tablet-sized personal computer controlling the electronics and advanced technologies. The UEVs will connect automatically to the campus’s Wi-Fi network via an installed 802.11x certificate and eduroam technology. This enables the vehicle to communicate operational data, such as position, speed and battery charge, to the campus’s computer network, where the data can support relevant research projects. The eduroam technology is a global Wi-Fi service normally enabling students, researchers and staff to obtain secure and fast Internet connectivity across campuses by simply opening their laptop.

Via a mobile application, users will know if a vehicle is available, where it is and where it will be. UEV users will be able to use their campus identification and password credentials provided by Internet2’s InCommon service to log in, reserve, activate vehicle use and provide comments on the vehicle’s performance and utility.

The seamless log in and identity applications combined with the high capacity 100 gigabit per second Internet2 Network will allow researchers to collect, transfer, store and analyze robust sensor data from the vehicle. This will provide a unique opportunity to greatly understand the “Internet of Things.” At the project’s conclusion, all aggregated data will become anonymous and publicly available to interested researchers.

Campuses also may follow developments about the Innova Dash UEV on Twitter via @Internet2 or #I2Dash. U.S. colleges and universities may obtain application information at www.internet2.edu.
