Abstract

This paper presents an interactive multimedia framework for introducing students to vehicle electrification/hybridization. The framework familiarizes its target audience with: (i) the societal factors driving the development of hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs/PHEVs); (ii) the differences between conventional vehicles, HEVs, and PHEVs; and (iii) the high-level performance constraints and tradeoffs inherent in hybrid vehicle design. The framework consists of two coupled components: (i) a set of educational videos on vehicle electrification; and (ii) a 3D videogame built around physics-based models of conventional and series hybrid ambulances. The paper presents both the above education framework and the specific principles from the pedagogy literature guiding its design.
