On-site deployment of the smart energy-positive street lighting system called E+grid has been completed at the MTA campus at Csillebérc, Budapest. This state-of-the-art lighting system was developed with support of the Hungarian Government by a consortium led by General Electric Hungary , with the participation of MTA SZTAKI , MTA MFA and BME .

The Engineering and Management Intelligence Research Laboratory of MTA SZTAKI and the SZTAKI- Fraunhofer Project Centrum for Production Management and Informatics developed a production planning system for the motor assembly lines of Audi Hungaria Motor Ltd. for a time horizon of 26-52 weeks.

Robotic remote laser welding (RLW) has attracted interest specifically in the automotive industry due to its potential benefits in terms of processing speed, process flexibility and energy efficiency.

Contributing to the EU-funded RLW Navigator project, researchers of the Research Laboratory on Engineering & Management Intelligence developed a software toolbox that enables the detailed configuration, optimization, simulation and automated off-line programming of RLW workcells. 

A research consortium of 8 European partners from industry (Airbus, Deimos Space), research establishments (DLR, MTA SZTAKI) and Universities (Bordeaux, Delft, Hull, Leicester) was established in July 2009 with funding from the European Union 7th Framework Program to address the challenge of the future sustainable aircraft: to be cleaner, quieter, smarter and more affordable.
