Weekes, Suzanne L.


The goals of this Interactive Qualifying Project were (i) to provide a means for an average person to understand the concept of hybrid electric vehicles, (ii) to provide a background of the development of modern transportation, (iii) to evaluate the impact HEVs would have on the environment and society if they were to become widely accepted, and (iv) to determine what knowledge people currently have about HEVs. These goals were met through the use of research, interviews, and a survey.
