BME Automated Drive Lab participated at ITS European Congress 2023 and the exhibition organised in the framework of the conference in Lisbon between 22-24 May as a partner of the Hungarian Public Roads Nonprofit Ltd. The event was expecting more than 2,500 participants, including EU representatives, ministers, mayors, city officials, industry leaders, researchers, engineers, developers and students, and 80 exhibitors.
The Hungarian participation focused on R&D topics related to the combination of self-driving vehicles and smart infrastructure, such as "Cloud Base Control and Teleoperation", "Cooperative Autonomous Field Monitoring", "Mixed Reality Test Support", "Dynamic and Static Ground Truth" and "Scenario Extraction". BME Automated Drive Lab was represented by assistant research fellow Zsolt Vincze at the prestigious event.
At the Hungarian booth, visitors could participate in a special teleoperation demonstration, where they could control our autonomous vehicle moving on the ZalaZONE proving ground in Hungary from a remote location, the exhibition site.
The demonstration attracted a large number of visitors, who were able to explore the "real-time digital twin concept" through the teleoperation service. Among the visitors we welcomed representatives of the Belgian Ministry of Transport and the Mayor's Office of the City of Munich, as well as representatives of several organisations such as UITP, BITSA, TEKIA, VRUC, or, for example, from the academic side, ICOOR.
The participation in the fair provided an excellent opportunity to present our research results to a wide audience and to build national and international contacts with industrial, academic and public stakeholders. The fair also provided an opportunity to position the results of our developments internationally.
