  • 14:10 - 14:30 Untold Stories in Engineering: Teaching Correlated Uncertainties - The Easy Way with MATLAB Viktor Jozsa - Associate Professor, BME
    If we measure anything, it is inherently burdened with uncertainty. The number of sensors around us exponentially increases – just think about your smartphone. By tradition, uncertainty estimation is educated to engineers by showing the Gaussian error propagation formula with marginal details. However, the required thinking of Industry 4.0 necessitates revisiting the theory behind uncertainty estimation. The simplest example is correlated uncertainty, e.g., temperature difference measurement with two similar thermometers from the same batch. The careful design saves significant money on sensors and improves data reliability.
    Guide to the expression of Uncertainty in Measurement traditionally requested to use of the Taylor Series Method to estimate uncertainty (generally known as Gaussian error propagation). It is not restricted to uncorrelated sensor data, but engineers are seldom aware of the advantages of having correlated uncertainties. Since correlated quantities introduce mixed terms in the formula, neglecting it may lead to both over or underestimation. The presentation will demonstrate the wise use of correlated uncertainties in MATLAB®. It is rarely discussed in measurement courses that the Monte Carlo Method was approved in 2008 as a fully acceptable alternative to the Taylor Series Method. The presentation will use simple examples to demonstrate the use of both methods with correlated uncertainty.
  • 14:30 - 14:50 Coffee Break
  • 14:50 - 15:10 Audi Development Camp: A Unique Program for Meeting the Demands of the Automotive Sector in the Field of HIL/SIL Simulations Daniel Feszty - Head of Department, Széchenyi István University

    The automotive sector is changing dramatically due to the increasing importance of drivetrain electrification and the exponential growth of electronics and infotainment functions on board vehicles. Modern vehicles have more electronic hardware and software than a decade ago. Therefore, they resemble more of a “computer on four wheels” rather than just a classical mechanical engineering product. This sets new demands on educating the next generation of engineers. At the same time, they shall be equally well-versed in the classical automotive engineering disciplines and IT and Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Reshaping the classical education curriculum takes time, and therefore, to meet the demands of the industry, Audi Hungaria, Széchenyi University, and their strategic partners – among them the representative of Mathworks in Hungary, SciEngineer – have introduced a unique project-based educational program called Audi Development Camp in Győr, Hungary. Audi Development Camp is an intensive summer boot camp in which students can acquire the latest industry-relevant knowledge in vehicle electrification, HiL-SiL simulations, and Electronics Control Units (ECU) calibration by solving real industry-defined problems in teams. A focal point of the Camp is to enable students to master MATLAB and  Simulink, tailored explicitly to simulating vehicle embedded systems and virtual testing. This talk will highlight Audi Hungaria’s general philosophy of support for higher education activities in Hungary, focusing on the concept, success, and lessons learned from the Audi Development Camp.

  • 15:10 - 15:30 HPC Services for Research and Academia by Governmental Agency for IT Development (KIFÜ) Zoltan Kiss - Head of HPC Development and Operations, Governmental Agency for IT Development (KIFÜ)
