What topics can I choose from?

AI & Connectivity

You’ll have the chance to build a machine-learning algorithm that predicts traffic patterns, and develop a connected car solution that uses AI to analyze data from sensors and cameras. Our student contest offers a unique platform for you to explore your creativity and collaborate with other talented students who share your passion.



Python and data science packages (such as Pandas, Numpy, SciKit Learn), preferably Pytorch but Tensorflow/Keras is also good, Jupyter Notebooks, C++

ADAS & Autonomous Driving

Autonomous driving solutions hold the key to improving safety and efficiency on the roads. Our goal is to create a solution where cars never tire, become distracted, or lose focus, all without the need for a driver. Your challenge is to bring this vision to life by designing and prototyping functions that can post-process sensor data, analyze it, and send commands to the actuators to control the vehicle.



Raspberry PI (Development Board) Python Language – Programming Skills HW: Radar, Camera, IR

Model Based & Functional Development

Experience the development cycle for the rear spoiler control on our Porsche cars. You will be using MATLAB/Simulink to design, develop and test a functionality based on given requirements, while at the same time understand the physics behind the system.
*This topic is only available for the Cluj location.
