Continental organized Electro-Mobility competition for Romanian students
At its 12th edition, the Electro-Mobility student competition was organized by Continental for Romanian students. 86 students from Bucharest, Botosani, Cluj, Galati, Iasi, Suceava and Chisinau competed in the final of 12 May. They took part in one of the three components of the competition: Electro-Mobility Embedded, Electro-Mobility Hardware or Electro-Mobility Software.
Participants in Electro-Mobility Embedded are the first generation to implement a new technical concept, the first step in a 5-year vision of the competition. The vision is built around autonomous driving and industry-defined automation levels where level 0 is the absence of any driving assistance system and level 5 is the maximum automation where there is no need for a human subject to monitor or control the movement vehicle.
In parallel, two other competitions took place: Electro-Mobility Hardware in which Iasi students were challenged to build an electrical circuit and Electro-Mobility Software, while another group of students had programming tasks where they were evaluated for the ingenuity to solve them.
This year’s Electro-Mobility Embedded winners were: HBFS Robotics Team consisting of Diana Biacu, Cristian Dobre, Mihai Craciunescu, Maria Circiumaru from the Faculty of Automation and Computer Science in Bucharest (1st place), Bitbit consisting of Andrei Codrut Diac, Tudor Andrei Vrabie, Ionut Vlad Modoranu from the Faculty of Automatic Systems and Computers in Iasi (2nd place) and Gost consisting of Alexandru Girdianu, Daniel Toma, Gabriel Sasu, Ionut Marian Olteanu from the Faculty of Electronic Systems and Military Informatics in Bucharest (3rd place). The Apollo v3.0 and Electro Phantom teams received special prizes.
The awards were as follows: 1st place – 1500 euros for the team, Second place – 700 euros for the team, 3rd place – 300 euros for the team, Special prizes – 200 euros.
The winners of the Electro-Mobility Hardware were Andrei Diac (1st place), Paulet Olimpian Toma (2nd place), Andrei Visan (3rd place) and Electro-Mobility Software were: Alexandru Perietanu (1st place), Victor Robu ), Andreea Postovan (3rd place).
213 students enrolled in this year’s edition, and 86 qualified and competed in the Electro-Mobility competition final.
