What you have to do

Assemble a team of 3 members.

Develop an innovative solution based on the assigned project during the competition.

Make a short presentation about the project that you worked on.

Pitch your solution in front of the jury.

The Contest

Choose one of the four topics

The exchange of information between the vehicle and the infrastructure is shaping the future of connected cars industry.

Design and implement [web / embedded] platforms for connecting the vehicles to the network in order to increase both driving and user experience.

Automated and autonomous driving functions are impossible to implement without AI.

Design and prototype modules for the future of automotive. Investigate data, predict behaviors and design tools which will be used in smart-cars.

Porsche Engineering relies on extensive and intensive testing on HiL (hardware-in-the-loop tool) test benches for the ever-more-complex control units in vehicles. Security has always been an essential component of vehicle architecture and automated testing enhances efficiency while offering high test depth.

Bring your ideas and skills on finding better ways to test the connected mobility in an automated way – Web / HiL or API services – keeping the focus on security.

Virtual environments and simulation activities are used to model, reproduce and modify vehicle behavior (Matlab/Simulink).

You can choose to design a control system for an active car component or to design and implement a system which allows the hybridization of a conventional vehicle, keeping in mind efficiency on the WLTC.


The event consists of coding and other challenges. At the moment, it is postponed to a later date.
The pitches will start Sunday followed by the award ceremony.


The event will take place at the Porsche Engineering Romania headquarters in Cluj-Napoca, Alexandru Vaida Voevod Street, nr. 16.
