The future of mobility is just around the corner, and we are asking for you to help co-create it with us.
We foresee the next generation of mobility solutions encompassing autonomous operations, propulsion systems that are not-reliant on fossil fuels, and platforms that are accessible to all.
Base 11, Dassault Systèmes, and their partners invite undergraduate and graduate students, aged 18 and older, to share their vision for how future mobility solutions can inclusively anticipate the needs of future users.
This challenge is an opportunity to develop and express your vision about mobility for an evolving environment that encompasses different users and different situations. By participating you can propose new mobility solutions for the future.
Also, participating in experiential learning activities, like this challenge, better prepares you to enter the workforce. See how academic knowledge is applied on the job and develop additional skills needed to successfully transition into the professional world – all of which will help you to be part of the stronger next generation of designers, engineers, scientists, and thinkers.
Finally, through your participation you can gain access to internship/employment opportunities, build out your digital portfolio, extend your network with some professionals from the industry, and win prizes. Does this sound interesting to you? Then join the Future of Mobility for All challenge!
What will you do?
This challenge asks you to share your vision for the future of mobility. By using the provided tools and tailoring your ideas to fit within the challenge parameters, you will see how creativity has to be balanced with real-world constraints. If you decide to form a team with up to two other students, you will learn about collaboration and how to create a stronger submission through the use of complementary skill sets and viewpoints. If you are selected as a finalist, you (and your team) will gain experience in learning how to present your design and make your case. Wonderful ideas are only as good as your ability to communicate them. In addition to these experiences, your submission can become part of your digital portfolio that will support you as you prepare to enter the workforce.
Designs may be submitted to one or both of these two different categories:
- Society – How can we ensure that the future of mobility includes everyone?
- Environment – How can we design mobility solutions that will be well-adapted to our future environs while also sustaining our earth for future generations?
For each of these categories, up to 10 finalists will be selected during the evaluation phase. Those finalists will then be invited to pitch their submissions before a panel of judges. Finally, up to 3 winners per category will be announced at the Next Frontier Initiative Conference & Expo in October, 2021.
Participants in this challenge will have free access to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, which includes Solidworks, ICEM Surf and CATIA software solutions, and to informational webinars with challenge sponsors. They will also have access to internship/employment opportunities and be able to network and share their work with challenge sponsors. Additionally, winners will be recognized with unique opportunities, sponsor merchandise, and cash awards.
