Argonne researcher Geoffrey Amann prepares the E-Tracer 79 for testing at the laboratory's APRF. In August 2010, APRF researchers provided validation testing for the finalists in Progressive Insurance's Automotive X Prize Competition to determine they met the competition's goals for performance and efficiency targets.
