Recent disaster events, like the 2021 flood in Germany showed clearly, that even the best alert systems and top first responder organisations can not prevent fatalities and serious damage on property without having prepared the citizens how to act and react during disaster situations and crises, understand alerts and follow instructions. B-prepared offers a cost-effective solution for building a culture of disaster preparedness with a multi-actor approach in realistic historical scenarios.

With technology rapidly enhancing and becoming more affordable, commercial and consumer drones have become increasingly popular since the beginning of the 21st century. They pose serious threats to safety (e.g. disturbances for airports and airplanes) and privacy (recording without consent, etc) as well. It is evident that in order to mitigate these issues and increase security it is critical to develop solutions that incorporate the detection and tracking of UAVs with autonomous systems.

The Sun is an enigmatic star that produces the most powerful explosive events in our solar system - solar flares and coronal mass ejections. Studying these phenomena can provide a unique opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of fundamental processes on the Sun, and critically, to better forecast space weather.

The activities of the National Laboratory are focused on fundamental and applied research on the autonomous functionality and the control of road vehicles, aircraft and drones, robots and cyber-physical manufacturing systems. The main fundamental research topics are modelling, model reduction and identification, adaptive, robust, distributed and networked systems control. These areas are closely related to the applied research areas, which include environment perception and situation assessment, vehicle dynamics modelling and control, as well as testing and validation.

The aim of the research project

When controlling automated vehicles, it is essential that the control system has information about the state of the ego-vehicle and its environment.

1 Jan 2022– 31 Dec 2024


One of the cornerstones of the development of autonomous vehicles nowadays increasingly focused on research is that the vehicle control system is able to plan the path of the vehicle taking into account the static and dynamic objects of the environment. Environmental sensing is based on sensors based on a variety of principles, such as ultrasound, radar, lidar, or machine vision based camera systems.

With new hardware and artificial intelligence against skin cancer

1 Jan – 30 Sep

The HydroCobotics H2020 cascade consortium is coordinated by industrial robotics company Hepenix kft., while hydroponics company Green Drops Farm kft. is also a member. Within ELKH SZTAKI, the project is coordinated by Research Laboratory on Engineering & Management Intelligence research fellow Imre Paniti. The research and development project starts on the 1st of January, 2021 and presumably concludes on the 30th of September, 2021.

1 Nov 2020– 31 Oct 2022

In the fight against COVID-19, manufacturing and distributing vital medical equipment became a major challenge. Unforeseen spikes in demand for essential medical supplies have been causing a greater urgency for supply chain optimisation and for deploying innovative approaches to scale up flexible and sustainable production methods.
