CTAG coordinates the ITS España course on Automated and autonomous driving

This course, organised by ITS España, took place last October 17 at the Dirección General de Tráfico in Madrid. In addition to CTAG, a number of organisations and companies involved in autonomous driving collaborated, including DGT, INSIA, ASTI, Ferrovial, Here, RACC and Telefónica. The course was coordinated by Francisco Sánchez Pons, Director of Electronics and Intelligent Transport Systems at CTAG.

This was an excellent opportunity to go into detail about the technologies involved in automated and autonomous driving together with outstanding professionals of the sector. The main international initiatives and projects in this field were presented as well as topics on which the vehicle of the future is being built: technologies, legislative aspects, infrastructures, connectivity and validation and set-up. This last topic was presented by Rosa Blanco, Head of the Department of Validation of Electronic Systems, Quality and HMI at CTAG.

Gilles Le Borgne y Yann Vincent, junto a otros directivos, comprueban el sistema de robótica colaborativa desarrollado por CTAG

 

El Booster Day es un evento para presentar soluciones innovadoras de cara a la Fábrica del Futuro. El evento, celebrado en el Forum Armand Peugeot (Poissy, Francia) el 20 de septiembre, reunió a destacados socios tecnológicos del grupo PSA, desde start-ups hasta laboratorios I+D pasando por proveedores y organismos públicos.

CTAG ha participado por primera vez este año presentando sus últimos avances en control de calidad utilizando la robótica colaborativa, con un sistema que ayudará a perfeccionar el montaje y soldadura de componentes. Se trata de un sistema para analizar la conformidad de piezas formado por un robot con sensor 3D y software de análisis. Ha sido diseñado bajo las pautas de la Industria 4.0, por lo que se plantea como una solución portable y flexible que agilizará la comunicación con el operario.

Algunos de los líderes en materia de innovación del Grupo PSA como Gilles Le Borgne (Director de Calidad e Ingeniería) y Yann Vincent (Director Industrial) han podido probar personalmente este sistema.

El viernes 8 de septiembre tuvo lugar en las instalaciones de MGI COUTIER el acto de lanzamiento de la Unidad Mixta de Investigación MGI-CTAG, recientemente subvencionada por la Agencia Gallega de Innovación (GAIN), que contó con la presencia del Conselleiro de Economía, Empleo e Industria, Francisco Conde, y la Directora de GAIN, Patricia Argerey, así como destacados representantes tanto de la empresa como del centro.

La iniciativa entre MGI y CTAG es fruto de una amplia trayectoria de actividades y proyectos comunes, que se ve reforzada con esta UMI, cuyo principal objetivo es la combinación de sinergias para la obtención de nuevos sistemas de apertura de vehículos que darán lugar a una nueva generación de componentes, fundamentadas en el cumplimiento de las futuras tendencias y requerimientos del sector de automoción.

Desde el punto de vista estratégico, esta Unidad Mixta de Investigación busca desarrollar nuevas capacidades en Galicia, que refuercen el equipo humano especializado en I+D, y que permitan generar oportunidades de proyectos de ámbito internacional.

Para la consecución de estos objetivos, se han dividido las actividades en varias áreas temáticas de I+D orientadas a la búsqueda de nuevas tendencias estéticas, al estudio de los materiales para su aplicación en nuevos sistemas de apertura y al estudio de nuevas tendencias de fabricación.

Esta colaboración se inició en septiembre de 2016 y tendrá una duración de tres años, hasta octubre de 2019. El presupuesto movilizado supera los 2 millones de euros.

Presentation at CTAG of the latest advances in connectivity and autonomous vehicle with Groupe PSA

Last 6 September, CTAG held the Innovation Meeting to present the latest advances in connectivity and the AVA “Autonomous Vehicle for All” programme for the development of autonomous vehicle and associated technical solutions, as well as to know the advances in driver assistance functions (ADAS), already available in the latest launches of the Peugeot, Citroën and DS brands.

Carla Gohin, Director of Research & Advanced Engineering of Groupe PSA participated in this event together with Francisco Conde, Conselleiro de Economía, Empleo e Industria de la Xunta de Galicia; Jaime Moreno, Subdirector de Movilidad de la Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT); Frédéric Puech, Directeur Pôle Ibérique of Groupe PSA and Luis Moreno, General Director of CTAG.

In the course of the Innovation Meeting, progress in the different lines of cooperation between Groupe PSA and CTAG was reviewed: human-machine interface (HMI) for autonomous, intelligent and connected vehicle; and innovations in cooperative systems and new interior architectures for advanced comfort. In addition, a visit to the laboratories associated with these lines of work was carried out, including CTAG’s Innovation Centre in Electronics.

Innovation Meeting highlighted Groupe PSA’s commitment to Spain in matters of R&D through the innovation collaborative ecosystem developed in Galicia in collaboration with CTAG and the support of the Xunta de Galicia.

CTAG participates in the XII National Congress of Composite Materials (MATCOMP 2017) with the project AEROCAR

San Sebastián
21, 22 and 23 June 2017

MATCOMP_2017

This biennial congress provides a unique forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest results of research and innovation projects related to the field of composites and high performance materials. This year, the Congress aims to reinforce the presence of advanced materials in relevant sectors in Spain, such as aeronautics, the automotive industry, railways, capital goods and machining/tooling, etc.

CTAG will take advantage of the forum of specialists that meets in this congress to present the conclusions of FORTAPE project (H2020-FOF, nº 636860) and to show how the experience gained in this project was key to make a centre specialized in the automotive business, like CTAG, find synergies and transfer possibilities in another technological sector, like aeronautics, opening a new line of work in order to capitalize and add value to the wide experience acquired over years of research and specialized customer service. Thus, through the new AEROCAR project (Interreg SUDOE, SOE1 / P1 / E0020), it is possible to boost an upward sector that is already prioritized in the European Commission’s strategic innovation agendas, Member States and even for many regional governments, which will generate an important socio-economic impetus for the regions included in the European Southwest Space.

The MATCOMP 2017 congress will take place at the Kursaal Congress Hall in San Sebastian from June 21 to 23. Check here the full programme: http://matcomp2017.com/images/PROGRAMA-MATCOMP2017.pdf
