Robots and platforms from the laboratory of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

The moving platform for realistic flight and driving simulators, developed by Professor Dragan Milutinović, is only one in the vast array of current projects of the researchers at the Industrial Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The cutting-edge platform is intended for making simulators for various kinds of vehicles, such as aircraft, armoured personnel carriers or construction machinery, says Professor Milutinović, who is also the Head of the Laboratory. The device, which has captured the attention of both the domestic and international manufacturers, is the outcome of twenty years of work on the modelling of parallel kinematic machines (robots, machine tools and simulators). One of the most important results achieved during this research is the… више

The Road Arrow Team – The pride of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the University of Belgrade

Eight years ago, a group of students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering gathered around an amazing idea and managed to form the team that would represent Serbia at Formula Student, the most prestigious engineering students’ competition in the world. Owing to students’ commitment and great support, the Road Arrow team has become a recognisable brand and the pride of both the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and University of Belgrade. The task of the members of the team is to design and construct a racing car, which then competes at racing tracks throughout Europe with 600 university teams from around the world. Six vehicles were made starting from 2012, and the team competed in races all around Europe (Germany, Great… више

Great success of Confluence Belgrade at the Hydrocontest 2017

The extensive budget, mobile workshops or sophisticated solutions of other teams were not enough to beat the knowledge and skills of the students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, who achieved brilliant results at the international Hydrocontest, held at Saint-Tropez in September 2017. Our team participated at this prestigious competition of naval architecture students for the first time, winning the second and the third place in two disciplines. Their team spirit and the readiness to share experience and provide help to colleagues from other teams were rewarded by a special Hydrocontest spirit award. This is the award we value most, since it speaks volumes about the good impression our team left and about the way in which we presented the… више
