Machine-Ground Interaction Consortium (MaGIC)
A consortium series centering around vehicle-ground interaction modeling and simulation. Researchers from across industry, government, and academia gather at UW-Madison to present on recent developments, as well as participate in a hands-on tutorial of the Project Chrono software suite for multibody dynamics. This event offers networking opportunities and the chance to get hands-on experience with Project Chrono software. The next consortium will take place from September 10-11, 2019.
