In May 2022 we have flown, crashed, repaired and flown again the T-FLEX demonstrator, within the FLiPASED H2020 project. The teams from SZTAKI (Institute for Computer Science and Control) and German Aerospace Center (DLR) also helped immensely with providing the test airfield, software preparation debugging and supporting the test team.
Péter Gáspár, Head of SZTAKI Systems and Control Lab (SCL), was elected Full Member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS). Tamás Szirányi, Head of the SZTAKI Machine Perception Research Laboratory, was elected Corresponding Member of the HAS at its 195th General Assembly.
A SZTAKI Autonóm Rendszerek Nemzeti Laboratórium keretében üzemeltetett Sindy kísérleti repülőgépén biztonságkritikus elektronikát teszteltek a kutatók az Aero Média Kft. közreműködésével, 2022. Március 28-án.
The research advisor of the Systems and Control Lab of SZTAKI was awarded the medal for his "achievements in the field of control theory research and education".
The 2nd Budapest Grand Prix of the REFORMula Challenge Innovation Competition II, organized with the professional support of the Autonomous Systems National Laboratory coordinated by SZTAKI, in which teams of high school and university students competed their skills.
A four-page portrait-article was published in the June 2021 issue of the Forbes Hungary magazine about Bálint Vanek, the Deputy Head of the Systems and Control Lab of SZTAKI.
On October 8, 2021, SZTAKI held a workshop entitled "Beauty of Stochastics" on the occasion of the 75th birthday of László Gerencsér, research advisor of the Systems and Control Theory Research Laboratory.
The two national laboratories coordinated by SZTAKI, the Artificial Intelligence National Laboratory (MILAB) and the National Laboratory for Autonomous Systems (ARNL) both took part at the exhibition held by the Artificial Intelligence Coalition in June, to showcase demonstrations and projects to the public.
Bálint Vanek, deputy head of the Systems and Control Lab of SZTAKI, and leader of the Aerospace Guidance, Navigation, and Control Group, has showcased the research of his laboratory and how its revolutionizing the future of aviation by flexible wings in an introduction video of SZTAKI made for the INCOM 2021 virtual conference.
The paper details the functions of the team’s model-based flight control system, developed for the flexible winged test plane, build under the H2020 FLEXOP project.
On the 19th of November 2019, an aircraft with aeroelastically tailored wings flew in real environment for the first time in the world. The wings carbon fibre composite orientation is changing by the wind’s direction. The flight of the craft that was developed under the SZTAKI-lead international project FLEXOP was to test ease passive damping of the load on the wings. SZTAKI has also responsible for building and functioning the board aviation (electric flight) system, including sensors and batteries inside the wings, and the autopilot system’s software and hardware components. With these, the craft is viable for repeatable experiments to collect data.
Researchers of SZTAKI, Institute for Computer Science and Control, Hungary, will lead the international project FLiPASED (FLight Phase Adaptive Aero-Servo-Elastic aircraft Design) which intends to revolutionize aircraft wings through developing and testing the so called active-controlled wings.
The 'Flutter Free FLight Envelope eXpansion for ecOnomical Performance improvement' (FLEXOP) project is an EU H2020 project. It opens a complete new dimension for derivative aircraft design. In order to validate the different methods and tools developed in the project, a flight-test campaign will be carried out, in which the design and manufacturing of stiff wings, very flexible wings with active flutter control, as well as tailored wings for passive load alleviation will be verified.

The members of the delegation were Dr. Stephen D. O'Regan (Associate Director, Office of Naval Research, Prague Office), and Ms. Amanda Napier (Science Advisor, US Army RDECOM-Atlantic).
Between 29-30 Oct. 2018, the 4th Progress Meeting of VISION H2020 EU-Japan research project was held at our Institute. Our partners in this project are as follows: ONERA, University of Bristol, University of Exeter, Dassault Aviation, RICOH, JAXA, ENRI, Mitsubishi Space Software and University of Tokyo.
We take the opportunity and congratulate our colleague György Lipták, Research Fellow of the Systems and Control Lab. He had his viva on the 25 April at the Doctoral School of Information Sciences at the University of Pannonia. He successfully defended his thesis.
The FLEXOP consortium -- led by our Institute -- has developed an unmanned aerial vehicle platform to facilitate the study of aeroelastic behaviour of aircraft and test advanced control methods for the future generation of commercial aircraft.
With the authorship of Profs. G. Szederkényi and K. Hangos of the Systems and Control Lab, and A. Magyar (University of Pannonia), a book entitled ’Analysis and Control of Polynomial Dynamic Models with Biological Applications’ was published by the Academic Press the other day.
Attila Cs. Marosi and Róbert Lovas (of the Laboratory of Parallel and Distributed Systems) together with Ádám Kisari and Ernő K. Simonyi (of the Systems and Control Laboratory) won the Best Paper Award of the IEEE Future IoT 2018 Conference, which was held in Eger . The title of their article was 'Novel IoT Platform for the Era of Connected Cars'.
