Great ideas, great projects that mostly dealt with the themes of safety, CO2 emission reduction and intuitive driving developement. The 8 finalists teams came from France, Germany, Japan,Turkey and the USA

 

 

THE WINNERS:

CATEGORY: TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

 

CLEAR AND CLEVER
The members of Clear & Clever team are Selin Sila Karakas and Berker Husam. Selin Sila Karakas: She is a Master Student at Marmara University in Industrial Engineering Department. Her task is to increase the image processing efficiency in this project. Berker Husam: He is a PhD student at Anadolu University in Physics Department. He is responsible to design the thermal camera and to provide its validty in theoritical way.

 

High-sensitivity infrared camera

Highly sensitive and fast response thermal infrared camera that enables autonomous driving at a lower cost. The jury particularly appreciated the team's ability to create low-cost technology for a highspeed, high-sensitivity infrared camera, whose implementation could facilitate largescale development of autonomous vehicles.

DOWS

Eva is a PhD student specializing in computer vision and machine learning, Florent is a PhD student in autonomous driving, Philip is a PhD student in control of autonomous vehicle, Sofiane is an engineering graduate with a specialization in innovation and entrepreneurship and Xiangjun is a PhD student in autonomous driving

Doors Opening Warning System

A system that detects cyclists or motorcyclists approaching the car and alerts the driver to avoid dangerous door opening. The jury commended the students' ability to innovate by taking existing technologies and enhancing them to improve road safety in cities.

 

2nd Prizes:

 

CATEGORY: NEW WAYS TO USE CARS

 

THE GLOBALISTS

The Globalists from the University of Tokyo in Japan

Electric Vehicle Batteries for Global electrical network

Use Electric Vehicle batteries as an actor of the global electrical network in addition to domestic, commercial and transport sectors : integrating electric vehicle batteries into the larger ecosystem of electrically-powered goods.

 

MAHUAZ

Mahuaz from Northwestern University in the United States

Wellness Unit Drive

New way to use time during autonomous driving for wellness activities : project to transform the vehicle cabin into a full-blown gym when the vehicle is driving autonomously in traffic jams. In particular, the jury hailed the team's ability to invent new user practices based on technology and equipment that already exists to some extent in vehicles today.

RENOVATE

Renovate team from Istanbul Technical University in Turkey

Plan4U

An intelligent route planner based on a pre-booking of the car journey : reducing urban traffic congestion with a dynamic system of pre-reserved journeys that are adjusted according to the number of users on the road.

THE JURY OF THE 2016 EDITION

The contest jury was chaired by Valeo’s CEO and was including Valeo directors as well as people from outside the company recognized for their experience and professional expertise, like scientists, designers, sociologists and architects.

VALEO INNOVATION CHALLENGE 2015

Words of the Valeo Team

1,324 teams from all over the world registered to participate in the Valeo Innovation Challenge 2015. Great ideas, great projects that mostly dealt with the themes of safety, CO2 emission reduction and intuitive driving developement. The six finalists teams came from China (two teams from the University of Peking), India (a team from the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education), Germany (Universität des Saarlandes and Leibniz Universität Hannover) and Spain (University of the Basque Country)

 

 

THE WINNERS:

 

 

FALCON VIEW
First prize went to the Chinese team “Falcon View” from Peking University.

 

New algorithms to improve visual-based detection of vehicles

They came up with a new way for autonomous cars to detect their surroundings based on new algorithms..

AUTO GEN Z

The German team “Auto Gen Z”, from Saarland University

Mirrorless safety Windshield System

They developed a connected system, reinforcing traffic safety. This alternative system effectively combines the three mirrors in a car into a single wide screen display.

M.A.D

The Indian team “M.A.D”, from Sri Aurobindo International Center of Education in Pondicherry.

Round the corner - collision warning system

They created a connected system reinforcing traffic safety. Based on satellite navigation, this advanced collision warning system alerts drivers, in real time, from potentially dangerous conditions.

VALEO EDITION 2014

Words of the Valeo Team

For the first edition, almost 1,000 teams from 55 countries submitted projects offering bold solutions for the car of the future. In 2015, after a strict selection process involving sixty Valeo experts alongside independent scientists, the 20 best projects have been selected in order to develop a prototype to take part in the final. Seven teams have been invited to Paris to present their project to the grand jury.

 

THE WINNERS:

 

 

TEAM SADEC
Brazilian team from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais.

 

Adaptive Hydrodynamic Continuous VT

They propose a project that reinvents the mechanical transmission system by coupling together the pump and the hydraulic motor. This innovation would enable the transmission to adjust to engine RPM continuously and automatically, thereby improving fuel efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions.

TEA UOTTAWA

Canadian team from the University of Ottawa.

Transmutable cars

They propose to develop an end-to-end hybrid electric powertrain system combining onboard technology and connectivity. The innovation uses geolocation and traffic data to shift from city to highway mode, thereby optimizing fuel efficiency.

TEAM THREE VEMACOLLEAGUES

Canadian team from the University of Waterloo.

The VeMAC Project

The project concerns an innovative, totally secure vehicle-to-vehicle communication system. It is based on the GPS and the time synchronization of data from each vehicle’s GPS sensors. Naturally, one of the initial applications would be to transmit road safety information, such as hazardous road conditions, emergency braking, accidents or rain.

THE JURY OF THE 2014 EDITION

The contest jury was chaired by Valeo’s CEO and was including Valeo directors as well as people from outside the company recognized for their experience and professional expertise, like scientists, designers, sociologists and architects.
