2011 Auto Workshop Rover1

On October 27, 2011, over 100 industry executives from across the nation attended an automotive technology workshop at NASA’s Glenn Research Center. The workshop included more than 30 exhibits demonstrating the latest NASA technologies that could benefit the automotive industry. Specialists were available to discuss the process of working with NASA, partnership opportunities, and how intellectual property and other concerns are handled. The workshop was hosted by the Manufacturing Advocacy & Growth Network (MAGNET) in Cleveland and the Center for Automotive Research at The Ohio State University. In addition to the NASA Glenn technologies on display, there were exhibits from local universities, including the Cleveland Institute of Art, as well as NASA research aircraft and space hardware.

The goal of the workshop was to inform the automotive industry about cutting-edge technologies that could be leveraged to improve automobile performance, efficiency, and manufacturing processes. Attendees had the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with NASA innovators to discuss their near-term technology needs and how NASA’s research and development could address their future technology requirements.
