Ennomotive and Grupo Antolin, the manufacturers of vehicle interiors, claim to launch the first wave of challenges of the ANTOLIN i.JUMP open innovation program.
With this program, Grupo Antolin aims to develop innovative solutions to lead the transformation of the automotive industry, following the trends of the electric and connected vehicle and the digitalisation of the processes. To accomplish this, three different technological challenges have been set in motion.
The first challenge revolves around finding new functions based on intelligent systems to improve life on board the vehicle that can be operated without user intervention. Systems must combine monitoring actions by sensors and control actions by actuators.
The second challenge is related to air quality. The goal is to find systems that manage and ensure good air quality on board the vehicle. This can be done by measuring the temperature, carbon dioxide, humidity, etc. to efficiently control and regenerate the air.
Finally, the third challenge focuses on solutions for cooling the electronics integrated in the vehicle. More specifically, the solutions must be easy to integrate and ensure good thermal conditions with neither electric consumption nor user interaction.
These competitions are available online and open to engineering professionals, startups, companies, universities and tech centres from all over the world wanting to submit solutions.
Each challenge comes with a cash prize of 10,000 euros and the opportunity to collaborate with Grupo Antolin in future projects. Those interested in participating must register here and send their solution before 17th June.
