On March 24 NXP and Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school signed a partnership agreement—the first of its kind—that included an equipment donation. NXP agreed to finance the equipment for a new teaching lab for the Embedded Systems and Connected Objects and Signal, Image, Communications, and Multimedia majors.
The partnership was signed during the European qualifications of the NXP Cup at Phelma. Entrants in the international competition, organized by NXP, are tasked with building and programming a driverless vehicle and programming it to complete a circuit as quickly as possible. Phelma entered three teams, one of which made it to the finals. However, due to technical problems, the team’s vehicle was unable to complete the circuit and was disqualified.
