FISITA - Daimler Student Innovation Competition

 

 

The next ten years will see some startling technological developments across the entire engineering world. Brake systems will have to modernise to keep pace with this accelerating industry. The roads of the future populated by autonomous vehicles, connected cars, smart bikes, solar power road surfaces, pedestrians and traditional vehicles too. It’s going to require exciting innovation to make sure everything stops when it’s supposed to.

Daimler and FISITA are asking you, the engineers of the future, to predict what the brakes of the future will look like.

How do you stop a 500 mph train?
How do you keep a wind turbine from catching fire?
How smart can you make autonomous brakes?
What could you do with the energy saved by regenerative braking technologies?

We want you to design an A2 technical poster tackling one aspect of what brakes will be like in 2025.

  • Think big. Think creatively. Don't be limited by current technology, if you can imagine it we want to see it.
  • Fix an old problem. Can you improve an existing system? Show us how.
