Safety First launches again this year

For the second time, our department is organising the Safety First! team competition among the students of the university.

The three-round team competition “SAFETY FIRST!” is organised annually by the Department of Automotive Technologies at Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The aim of the competition is to promote the field of transport safety and to motivate students interested in the subject to implement innovative research ideas. Through the competition, we support our students to find innovative solutions to current problems in transport and vehicle safety.

In the first round, teams of 3 will be invited to give a short presentation on their potential solution to the chosen safety problem. The presentation and the abstract submitted at the time of application will be evaluated by a panel of experts and the winners will be selected.

The teams participating in the second round of the competition will be supported by industry and academic consultants involved in the development process. As a result, the teams will present their concept and its applicability in a 6-10 page abstract, including model-based tests to demonstrate its benefits.

The third round teams will present their idea and the practical application of their concept through a demonstration.

The competition gives candidates the opportunity to use their knowledge of science, engineering and mathematics to create and develop cost-effective concepts in the field of road safety. As well as testing their knowledge, it is an excellent opportunity to network with other students and industry and academic experts.
