ennomotive and Grupo Antolin launch the second wave of technological challenges of the ANTOLIN i.JUMP open innovation program

They are looking for technical solutions that improve life on board the vehicle regarding the cooling of the cabin, product traceability, and interior lighting.

Madrid, 4th of November, 2019. Ennomotive and Grupo Antolin, one of the largest manufacturers of vehicle interiors in the world, 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 www.ennomotive.com and send their solution before December 16th.

Adaptive Beamformer: An HLS Optimization Case Study with SLX FPGA

Sponsored by Silexica

Learn more about how SLX FPGA provides a productivity and efficiency boost when using high-level synthesis (HLS) to implement FPGA applications in C/ C++, through automated analysis and optimization. In this beamforming example, SLX FPGA is able to achieve lower latency and cut development time from weeks down to minutes compared to hand-optimization for similar cost of resources.
