After an exhausting 2020, it’s best to focus on what the future brings, what we can build with the help of talented students. Universities are like life support systems for tech companies such as Commsignia, and we’re proud to have Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) as a key partner in educating future engineers about automotive communication and collaboration – definitely our favourite topic.
We have a 5 years long cooperation with BME, a known and recognised educational institution, and BME’s Department of Networked Systems and Services (BME HIT) has strong competences in the field. To date, 32 BSc and MSc engineers were graduated from BME’s Automotive Communication Research Group, and more than five hundred students attended the introductory lectures and practical laboratory exercises on V2X technologies.
Studies published by the students working with Commsignia have won various awards, and some of our students were able to take part in projects with a European car manufacturer in which they could work on V2X standards.
These technologies actually became a part of the next generation of vehicle communications standards.
It’s very easy to become lost in questions that are theoretically complex but not focused enough on a single industrial challenge. Commsignia brings relevant industrial topics which motivates students and allows us to guide them towards exciting independent research, theses, studies and PhD courses – says Dr. László Bokor, associate professor at BME, who’s giving lectures about V2X cooperative intelligent transportation systems at the university.
As one of our colleagues, András Wippelhauser (also a BME alumni) said: accident free and efficient transportation are two things everyone would like to see in the future, and his goal is to create as many V2X applications as possible. That’s exactly what we will work on in 2021 and beyond.
