Education Students Research Day. 


Friday, March 31st, is filled with short high-tech colleges of 30 minutes, dealing with high-tech developments. Colleges are available to students, lecturers, and study coordinators. Students of various (race) teams as well as lecturers or professors, give the latest insights in new evolving technologies. The colleges deal with all aspects regarding smart automotive (mobility)technologies, varying from BMS to HMI to traffic control, aerodynamics, C2C communication, electric propulsion, etc.

Colleges offered and choosing on site

Fifteen mini-colleges in total will be given throughout the day, some in Dutch some in English. Titles and short descriptions of the different colleges will be listed here below. Based on the information given you can make a choice out of the colleges offered and register for it on-site. Most mini-colleges are held several times a day (3-4 times). Topics vary from specific automotive research, to futuristic views and trends & developments in smart automotive technology. You can sign up for the colleges of your choice on-site at the beginning of the day or even later during the day if you are not able to come earlier. By using vouchers you will be able to decide which mini-college to follow at what time. Pre-registration is open for the entire day without choosing a specific college you wish to attend.


Dynamic demonstrations

Besides an ongoing offer of colleges and an Information Market, attendees can experience various live demonstrations outside the Campus facilities. Various student teams will perform demos with their innovative vehicles and new technologies will be shown and further explained.

Overview of the mini-colleges offered






Automotive - the future of mobility

Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences

In dit interactieve mini college ontdekken we samen de drijfveren achter duurzame automobiliteit.  


Human Factors in Automated Driving

Twente University

Three students from HFauto Project will give a short lecture on human factors in automated driving. The lecture consists of three parts: 1) an overall review of transitions of control and cognitive process of driver building situation awareness, 2) factors influencing driver takeover time and individual differences, 3) driver behaviour modelling in traffic flow theory and its implemented into simulation packages. The aim is to build up a general picture of human factors that engineers have applied to automated driving and stimulate interest among students

Delft Smart Mobility: An automated demand responsive public transport system between Delft-Zuid Station and the TU Delft Campus, a study for Transdev and Gemeente Delft.

Delft University of Technology

“To what extent, and under what conditions, can an automated demand responsive, door-to- door, system make public transport routes more attractive for travellers; and what are the corresponding net benefits, from the perspective of the operator and society, of implementing this system to improve access and egress between the Delft Zuid station and the TU-Delft Campus?”

Adapting parking infrastructure for future technologies present in city centres, a study for Deerns

Delft University of Technology

The effects of autonomous vehicles on parking in city centres is studied. For this case, the study will be made in the city of Rotterdam, which has one of the worst traffics in Europe. By looking at future technologies today, infrastructure interventions can be explored to prepare the city to tackle these issues as new technologies roll out with autonomous vehicles.

Let’s stick cars together

Eindhoven University of Technology and Fontys Automotive Team Inmotion

Lijmen van structurele verbindingen komt tegenwoordig steeds meer voor. Doordat we steeds vaker verschillende en vaak lichtere materialen aan elkaar willen verbinden met een grote ontwerpvrijheid, is lijmen een goede aanvulling op al bestaande technieken zoals bijvoorbeeld lassen. Bij dit mini college krijgt u een kleine introductie, in combinatie met praktische kennis over het aanbrengen van lijm.

INTRALOG: Towards Self Docking Trucks in Ports and on Distribution Centers

HAN University of Applied Sciences

Self driving cars and trucks promise to have many benefits. Yet, self driving cars and trucks cannot be implemented on public roads everywhere at this moment. Therefore HAN-AR works on a project called INTRALOG, which focuses on self-docking trucks at ports and at distribution centers. HAN-AR will give an overview on INTRALOG and demonstrate the project on a miniature scale:

- a self docking truck with programmed controls and pathfinding algorithm

- a drone which is used to calculate exact position of the truck, as input for path finding.
