TEQCharging: Power Management System for Electric Vehicle Chargers
Georgia Tech mechanical engineering students co-founded TEQ Charging, a startup that invented a power strip that allows multiple electric vehicles to be recharged by a single charging point. TEQ Charging is one of six competition finalists in Georgia Tech's 2016 InVenture Prize Competition. Their power management system for electric vehicle chargers reduces the cost of installation, increases the efficiency of charging, and therefore, provides greater accessibility to charging. The team's algorithm and hardware design eliminates the need to run a separate power line to each individual charger.
