Prizes for Electric Car Algorithms

The CREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon University is sponsoring a contest to develop efficient battery-management algorithms for electric vehicles.  At the end of every month, high-performing entries will be awarded small prizes ($100 in Amazon gift cards), with a grand prize (possibly an actual electric vehicle) awarded at the end of the competition.  At the end of each monthly judging phase, entries are open-sourced for all to see and share.
