Two Romanian young men activating in the industrial field were nominated by the American Forbes magazine among the 30 most important European young people under 30 years in the industrial field: Cornel Amariei, R&D Engineer, Continental Automotive Systems, currently based in Germany and Ionuț Budișteanu, due to his startup, VisionBot which was founded in Romania.
About Cornel Amariei Forbes says he is an inventor, author and electrical engineer who built Lumen, a device that uses a 3-D scanner and vibrating sensors to help the blind get around on their own. “Amariei is also a research-and development engineer at Germany’s Continental Automotive, a maker of chassis, power trains and brakes for Daimler, Ford and Volkswagen. At Continental he leads sensor, smart-connectivity and autonomous-driving innovation.”
“Everything it’s possible in Romania, to achieve great success!”, Ionuț Budișteanu wrote on his Facebook page.
“Programming since he was 14, Budișteanu was raised in Râmnicu Vâlcea city, also known as Hackerville”, Forbes notes. “He’s built his own low-cost self-driving car and developed his own Al programming language and now he runs VisionBot, a company that makes affordable products out of prototypes for other inventors like him. When he was 16, he landed a spot on Forbes Romania’s 30 Under 30 in 2012,” Forbes’ description reads.
