Grupo Antolin and ennomotive launch the second wave of technological challenges of the ANTOLIN i.JUMP open innovation program
Grupo Antolin, one of the largest manufacturers of vehicle interiors in the world, and ennomotive launch the second wave of challenges of the ANTOLIN i.JUMP open innovation program. With this program, Grupo Antolin aims to develop innovative solutions to lead the transformation of the automotive industry, following the trends of the electric and connected vehicle and the digitalization of the processes.
To accomplish this, three new technological challenges have been launched.
The first challenge revolves around finding cooling solutions that improve the thermal comfort of the passengers inside the vehicle. Proposals should fully or partially replace the traditional HVAC systems while reducing the energy consumption, if possible.
The second challenge is related to product traceability. The goal is to find reliable and low-cost sensorization and data-collecting solutions to monitor the status of a product at any given stage of a high-pressure and high-temperature manufacturing process.
Finally, the third challenge focuses on a complete car interior lighting system with all the possible functions, including design and control/operating technology, that meets the needs of the new types of mobility.
These competitions are online and open to engineering professionals, startups, companies, universities and tech centers from all over the world that want to submit solutions.
Each challenge comes with a cash prize of 10,000 euros and the opportunity to collaborate with Grupo Antolin in future projects. Those interested in participating must register on https://www.ennomotive.com/ and send their solution before December 16th.
Grupo Antolin just awarded prizes for innovative solutions to the three technological challenges launched in May. In total, Grupo Antolin received 73 solutions proposed by engineers, startups, universities and technical centers from 29 countries. The company gave five awards: two first prizes and three secondary awards.
