The first edition of the contest ANFIA Next Mobility Hackathon has ended, organized by Components and Car Coachbuilders-Designers Group of ANFIA to give room to the ideas and to the talent of Italian schools’ and Universities’ students in the vision of the mobility of the future.
The Committee of Technical-Scientific Assessment (Comitato di Valutazione Tecnico Scientifica – Cvts) introduced six projects in the range of the selected finalists and the contest was won by Niccolò Casagrande, twenty-one years old student from Iaad in Turin, with a sustainable project for the public transport: Mt_T.
It is modular double-decker tram, designed for the city of Turin as evolution of the so-called light subway. Inspired by Covid-19 emergency, the project aims at a more controlled conditioning due to the downsizing of the cabin and to an attentive development of the vehicle interior space.
«The car and the whole world of means of transport are the focus of radical reviews, in the name of the environmental sustainability and the adoption of new technologies. Design and engineering are the tools to imagine the mobility of the future. With the zero edition of Anfia Next Mobility Hackathon – states Silvio Angori, President of Anfia Components and Car Coachbuilders-Designers Group we intended to establish a channel of direct communication and renewed collaboration with schools and universities and, especially, with the students interested in giving their innovative contribution to the automotive industry».
