Bosch stays as Pneumobile Competition sponsor

Eger – Last weekend, the ninth annual international competition for air-driven cars took place in Érsekkert in Eger. Entering the fray were 47 teams from 26 universities in 6 countries, including Hungary. The Bosch Rexroth companies launched the competition in 2007 in what was then a national event. Over the years since then, the Pneumobile Competition has now grown into a prestigious European contest and the number of teams has tripled. Bosch Rexroth Kft. has continued to provide technical support and high-tech parts for building the Pneumobile vehicles and Robert Bosch Kft. is the diamond sponsor of the 2016 competition in Eger.

Javier González Pareja, representative of the Bosch Group in Hungary, said in his welcoming address that he was proud of the commitment and technical experience behind Bosch’s launching of the event nine years ago. “This is what laid the foundations for its success, and the technical support and sponsorship provided by Bosch and Rexroth remains the guarantee of progress. I think this year’s competition is another fine example of that.”

The compressed-air driven cars once again had to go three competition sections: distance, manoeuvrability and acceleration. The expert panel of judges also evaluated which team of engineering students had come up with the most original vehicle construction and project concept.

In what was definitely the most exciting and spectacular category, the pneumatic driven cars had to accelerate to cover a 220 meter track in the shortest time possible on one air cylinder. In the final round, the pneumobile built by the De-PuffAIR team from the University of Debrecen was the quickest, covering the distance in 21.8 seconds.
