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, where Model-Based Design plays a key role in the process of providing modern solutions, allowing for significant savings, avoiding many errors in the later stages of design, and optimal cooperation between teams responsible for individual components.

During 2024 edition, you will turn into Automotive Engineer and meet various aspects of Software-Defined Vehicle – from safety systems to powertrain. Rapid technology advancement requires quick but credible testing environment. This time not only will you provide and develop solutions but also implement them in virtual 3D car with high level of fidelity.

In this 12-hour competition you will complete tasks such as: identifying and designing control algorithm for vehicle, modeling physical systems, utilizing data from sensors installed in the car, signal and image processing, or implementing ADAS increasing driver’s safety and comfort. 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.
