Dr. Máté Zöldy presented about the merge of mobility and artificial intelligence

The 1st Tunisian-Hungarian Research Day was organized by the Hungarian Embassy in Tunis, with four focus areas. Cognitive tools and approaches are reshaping one of the pillars of our society: the mobility. These tools increase efficiency and, if used consciously, can help make mobility more sustainable. In addition to presenting general trends, projects of leading Hungarian research laboratories (National Laboratory for Autonomous Vehicles, National Laboratory for Artificial Intelligence, SZTAKI, BME MIT, BME GJT) were also presented. We hope that more collaborations can be initiated through Research Day.

EIT Hackathon – Green Ideation

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology organizes a workshop focusing on the raw materials sector (EIT RawMaterials), food industry and agriculture (EIT Food), and climate change (EIT Climate-KIC). The Hackathon is realized in cooperation with the Climate Innovation Community and the Moholy-Nagy University of Arts. With the help of Design Thinking trainers, students have the opportunity to get to know the user-centered approach to innovation, learn to use their design toolkit in such a way as to combine user needs, new technological possibilities and the conditions for business success in a single solution. During the workshop, they can improve their problem-solving and teamwork skills, while meeting and working with young people with similar interests, not only supporting the fight against climate change with their ideas, but also preparing for EIT’s business development programs, strengthening the entrepreneurial spirit.

Language of the program: Hungarian

Participation is free, but registration is required

The event is also available on social media.

Audi and Bosch are good examples of automotive research and development in Hungary

Several series of articles examine the effects of the growing presence of battery production in Hungary related to the spread of electromobility. Máté Zöldy, head of the Innovative Vehicle Technologies research group, among several experts who spoke about real similarities and differences with the automotive industry, highlighted that several of the Hungarian subsidiaries of German companies carry out significant research and development in our country on an international scale.

Successful home defense of Ádám Nyerges

In the case of commercial vehicles, there are still many technologies competing to reduce the environmental impact of mobility. Ádám Nyerges, a researcher and instructor at the Innovative Vehicle Technologies Competence Center, presented his results related to the internal combustion engine in a successful workplace debate. Congratulations, Ádám, and good luck with the public defense!

Nomination for the office of the year competition

The measurement preparation and evaluation space of the Innovative Vehicle Technologies Competence Center was nominated in the “Commercial space” category in the office of the year competition, together with the Bosch Innovation Center. The application highlights the original, valuable and pleasant environment that was created, and that it strives for the unity of practical aspects, innovation and sustainability.

KJK experts, Máté Zöldy and Márton Virt made a statement on Totalcar about the fuels of the future

Is there life beyond electricity? The intensive electrification of transport is a solution for some areas of mobility, but the current technology will not be able to fully replace petroleum-based energy sources – The collegues of the Innovative Vehicle Technologies research group discussed about the developement of new generation fuels on Totalcar.

IVT at the Future Transport event!

It was an honour for the Innovative Vehicle Technologies Research Group to be invited to the Future Transport event, which took place in the framework of the Neumann Year at the Neumann University. The leader of the research group, Dr. Máté Zöldy, took part in a round table discussion with Dr. Barna Hanula and Virág Mészáros, among others, in front of an audience of more than 200 people. The future of transport will be electric, but not exclusively electric, concluded the panelists.

FISTA Technology of Mobility Conference and Exhibition 2023

The Technology of Mobility Conference & Exhibition incorporating the FISITA World Congress 2023, is the hub for the international mobility systems engineering community. FISITA members and other stakeholders from across the global industry will come together over four days to explore the technology, methodology and strategy of mobility, from design, through to manufacture and use by bringing together the many different disciplines of engineering innovation required for the technology of tomorrow’s mobility. Please have a look at the summary and the full broschure of the event!


A legend comes to life again!

BME’s Competence Centre for Innovative Vehicle Technologies, in collaboration with Robert Bosch Kft. and Mouldtech kft, has embarked on an exciting project to develop the electric powertrain of the Alfa Tipo 184. Following the completion of this first prototype, tests are ongoing at the ZalaZONE test track to determine the next development tasks.

The ground floor of building J has been renovated.

In the framework of the Project of Competence Center (2019-1.3.1-KK-2019-00004), the ground floor and foreground of the building J were renovated, through the cooperation of the Project of Autonomous National Laboratory, the KJK dean’s office and the BME Chancellery. The workspace created in cooperation between Robert Bosch Ltd. and BME provides space for two meeting rooms, named after two Professors Pál Michelberger and Aurél Jurek, in addition to the Innovative Vehicle Technologies Research Group. The 21st-century workspaces enable more efficient work not only for the teaching researchers but also for the students involved in the developments.
