Student Challenge in Automotive Haptics (Deadline May 14, 2018)

Hyundai Motors and AsiaHaptics 2018 are pleased to announce the 1st Student Challenge in  Automotive Haptics. In this challenge, we invite teams of undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world to propose and create innovative haptics solutions for the next generation vehicles. We particularly seek high-quality automotive haptics solutions (hardware and software) that can be applied to vehicles and vehicular technology including but not limited to in-car entertainment, driving technology, smart cars, vehicle sensors, and autonomous driving. Please note that there are no restrictions on proposal topics as long as they can be applied to vehicles (mid-air haptics, touchscreen haptics, fingertip haptics, etc). However, the proposal should contain solid and concrete ideas and the participants must demonstrate their skill set for actual implementation of their prototype. A total of five to ten teams will be selected for the second round based on the quality and feasibility of their proposals. All selected teams will receive the initial grant to cover material expenses for building the prototype of what they proposed. They will compete for $5,000 in cash prizes in AsiaHaptics 2018.

How to Participate?

A team must complete both a proposal (download) and a participation agreement (download) and submit them by May 14, 2018 (11:59PM UTC) to here. Only PDF files of both proposal and participation agreement are allowed for the submission. No late submission is accepted. The proposal should be completed in English only.

A team must be formed between 2 and 5 student members, and one advisor must be included in the team.

Responsive CSS Designs

Für das Design moderner Webseiten ist die Berücksichtigung mobiler Endgeräte ein Muss. Responsives Webdesign unterstützt die Darstellung abhängig von der Auflösung und Bildschirmgröße des Endgerätes. Da diese Technik relativ neu ist, gibt es bisher nur wenige Beispiele online.

Eine schöne Sammlung verschiedener Designvorlagen für responsive Seiten bietet CSS Zen Garden. Die Beispiele zeigen auch interessante Ansätze für Techniken, die in CSS3 verfügbar sind, wie Animationen ohne Javascript und Darstellung abhängig von der Scroll-Tiefe.

Ein guter Start für das Design der eigenen responsiven Webseite!
