Name of beneficiary: IKARUS JÁRMŰTECHNIKA Járműgyártó, -Javító Kereskedelmi és Szolgáltató Limited Liability Company and Óbuda University.
Project name: Research and development for the evolvement and market launch of an internationally marketable, electric-drive, self-driving, intelligent servicing bus chassis range consisting of identical elements.
Contracted grant amount: HUF 841,035,235
Grant intensity: 53.16 %
Presentation of project content: Ikarus plans to implement preparations for the development of a self-driving, electric drive, high quality, yet cost-effective bus chassis range consisting of identical elements that is competitive on the EU market. The units of the chassis range consist of identical parts and main units. The design methodology established during the project allows the various units of the chassis range to support buses of varying lengths, satisfying varying user needs with a minimum of additional design work. Thanks to 5G communication, by optimizing the vehicles’ road traffic service, operating costs can be significantly reduced.
Based on research forecasts and markets trends, Óbuda University surveys the expectations of public transport operators as well as those using the service, based on which it prepares the data requirement specifications for the “Smart bus” and intelligent servicing system.
Planned project date of completion: 31/03/2023
Project identification number: GINOP-2.2.1-18-2020-00028
