Anchored by a year-long cross-country journey in a General Motors Chevrolet Volt, Drive for Innovation features EE Times Editorial Director Brian Fuller driving a fire-engine-red Volt to innovation hubs across America interviewing engineers, entrepreneurs, innovators, students and the occasional “mad scientist” and blogging and posting video updates about their experiences. Check out the Road Trip Calendar.
The first leg of the journey took us to six states in five weeks, over 3,800 miles. Stops included:
- TE Connectivity
- Rockwell Collins
- Avnet offices in Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis and Cleveland
- Maker Faire Detroit
- Illuminati Motor Works
Next up: A major Avnet event in Phoenix and then the American Le Mans racing series at Elkhart Lake, Wisc. Stay tuned for more road trip calendar updates.
