Intelligent Functions to Improve in-vehicle UX (10K € in Prizes)

intelligent in-vehicle user experience

New trends related to car-sharing and autonomous driving are revolutionizing the mobility sector. However, the identification of useful intelligent functions for users is a very difficult mission in an industry as competitive as Automotive.

Can you help us to find new functions based on intelligent systems to improve in-vehicle user experience?

Summary of the Intelligent Functions Challenge

New trends associated with the electric engine, connectivity, autonomous driving, and car sharing are revolutionizing the mobility and, in particular, the way of using and enjoying the car interior on each of its parts. These trends offer the opportunity to introduce new functions into the car interior to improve the user experience and the quality of life on board.

Furthermore, the reduction in the cost of certain electronic devices and the progress made in control technologies at HW and SW levels facilitate the introduction of new functions in the vehicle based on intelligent systems.

However, the ultimate goal is to identify useful functions or applications for which users and customers are willing to pay in an industry as competitive and cost-pressed as the automotive.

What Grupo Antolin is looking for

As part of its Open Innovation program, Grupo Antolin is looking for new functions based on intelligent systems that can operate without user intervention. These systems must combine monitoring actions by sensors and control actions by the corresponding actuators. It must be possible for the elements of the system to be integrated into the products manufactured by Grupo Antolin.

The functions may relate to the field of interior architecture, safety, comfort (temperature and humidity control, air quality, acoustic conditions, interior lighting…), infotainment, storage solutions or any other aspect that brings value to the driver and/or the passengers.

The type of sensors, actuators and control systems needed to perform the proposed function must be described and one brief analysis of their current prices must also be included. 

These new functions are thought to be developed in the short/medium term. They should be intended for both conventional vehicles and for car sharing services (not for long-term concepts regarding autonomous driving).

Evaluation criteria

Submissions will be assessed according to the following criteria:

  • User Value of the proposed function
  • Simplicity and performance
  • The originality of the proposed system
  • Lower Cost
  • Integration in the car interior


This is a one-round challenge with the following deadlines:

  • 6 weeks for submissions
  • 3 weeks for evaluation


The best ideas in this challenge (up to 2) will share a total prize of 10,000 €.

Grupo Antolin may be interested in further collaborating with the participants in the development of the proposed solutions.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
