About the competition

Simuthon is a competition dedicated to modeling and simulation – it is addressed to students and enthusiasts of the latest technologies in the indicated areas. The competition is embedded in the Automotive industry, in the field of autonomous driving, where modeling and simulation play a key role in the process of designing modern solutions, allowing for significant savings, avoiding many errors in the later stages of design and optimal cooperation between teams responsible for individual components.

As a Simuthon participant, you will join the AptivTaxi team. In groups of 2-4 people you will be tasked with importing the state-of-the-art solution. With that come few challenges that need to be tackled by your team before you deploy the autonomous vehicle onto the roads. AptivTaxi needs to be recallibrated for the completely different environment that it will encounter in the capitol of Małopolska region. In this 12-hour competition you will complete tasks such as: designing control systems for vehicle components, performing object detection on real data gathered in test rides and optimize path planning in urban space like Cracow. You’ll have the whole MathWorks toolchain at your disposal, along with it’s documentation as well as mentors from ONT and Aptiv to help you throughout the competition.
