With a design for cleaning the construction site, a team of students at the Faculty of Civil Engineering won against 1259 participants from 58 countries in the international creative student competition The Trail by Vinci Construction which focuses on innovations and new technologies in building construction. The team of Lucie Stupková, Jakub Starosta, Radek Benetka and Jakub Volf won the Leonard category, which allows for entry into the Paris start-up incubator of the VINCI Construction group and to turn the project into practice together with developers and specialists.
The automotive novelty has been successfully tested by scientists at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. They developed a driving control system similar to that used in both civilian and military aircraft. The pilot does not control the individual elements directly, but only passes the impulses to the electronic control unit which then performs maneuvers itself with respect to other flight parameters.
The Unique Laboratory of Anatomical Models was opened on 25 May at the CTU Faculty of Biomedical Engineering in Kladno. The opening of the Laboratory equipped with plasticised human bodies and authentic human organs supplemented the presentation of the virtual autopsy table by Hellago, a sought acquisition by the faculty. It's basically a giant tablet with virtual scalpel that allows for virtual cuts on the human body.
Diploma works of Ing. arch. Filip Galko and Ing. arch. Veronika Indrová succeeded in the Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) 2018. They were among the top 40 out of the 334 nominated best diploma projects by schools of 32 countries selected by international jury. Filip Galko was a student of Stempel & Beneš Studio, Veronika Indrova studied at Novotny - Koňata - Zmek Studio, both of which are part of the Design Institute I.
The Center of City of the Future at CTU-CIIRC (CCF) was opened in the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics on 23 May, under the auspices of the Rector of CTU, doc. RNDr. Vojtěch Petráček, CSc. The CCF is conceived as a virtual experimental testbed of a city, region, landscape and its technical infrastructure as well as other types of urban settlements and features that are located there. This complex interconnected system will serve as urban research tool, link academia, commercial spheres and municipalities, help present projects and augment education. This workplace is part of the Department of Intelligent Systems led by the director of CTU-CIIRC prof. Ing. Vladimír Marík, DrSc., and will be managed under the direction of Ing. arch. Michal Postránecký.
