Green Revolution: CityCar

Lisa Van Pay of the National Science Foundation meets with Will Lark, an MIT graduate student working on the CityCar project. The two discuss the technologies that make this vehicle unique and explore the relationship between art, science, and design. The CityCar team hopes that their ideas will some day be part of the solution to problems common to many cities: pollution, traffic and lack of green space. This story allows the viewer to see how researchers identify problems, build models to represent a possible solution, test the model to see if it will really work, and repeat this process until the original goal is attained or a new way of thinking emerges.
