First Progress Update

On 22 and 23 May, all universities were required to present their current progress to the PGMC2012 Technical Committee. This first progress update presentation was held at the Melaka International Trade Centre (MITC), in conjunction with the Automotive Safety Week 2012: Southeast Asia (ASW2012: SEA). This first ever ASW: SEA was hosted by Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) in association with Global New Car Assessment Performance (NCAP) Annual Meeting.

The progress report consists of a 35-minute presentation and a 10-minute Q&A session. The logbooks were also checked during this presentation. UKM's ICE Terminator gave their account on Wednesday 23rd May. The scopes covered by this progress report include:
  1. Planned schedule and status
  2. Update and technical progress on electric car conversion
    • EV development and strategy
    • Battery management
    • Electric motor control technology
    • Thermal  management
  3. Status update on website, marketing and sponsorship
  4. Financial status - expenditure as well as other source of income
Dr. Wan Faizal started the presentation. He is backed up by Dr. Rizauddin, Zulkhairi, Yushaizad and Hanief who all presented their own tasks.

Afterwards, we checked out the cars that were on display, on top of PROTON's own Saga EV.
