Ensayo en pista del proyecto 5GCAR


CTAG hosts a working meeting on this European Project focused on the use of 5G technology to achieve safer autonomous driving.

During the meeting, on March 21, 22 and 23, the first tests of 5GCAR are being carried out. This Horizon 2020 project, which is within the framework of the 5GPPP programme, started in June of 2017 lasting for 24 months. It has a global budget of 8 million euros.

The main objectives of the project are the following:

  • Developing a 5G global architecture that allows high robustness and low latency connectivity services for V2X safety applications.
  • Providing high precision 5G positioning solutions for vulnerable users and vehicles.
  • Demonstrating and validating the concepts developed, quantifying the benefits that 5G V2X technology can provide in both conventional and autonomous driving scenarios.

CTAG’s participation is focused on the implementation and integration in vehicles of coordination systems for lane joining manoeuvres, cooperative perception and protection of vulnerable users, highlighting their development in the areas of machine vision, data fusion algorithms and connectivity.

The 5G CAR Consortium, led by ERICSSON and made up of 14 companies and knowledge centres, both in the telecommunications sector and the automotive sector, includes the following organisations: ERICSSON, HUAWEI, NOKIA, ORANGE, PSA GROUP, VOLVO CARS, BOSCH, MARBEN, VISCODA, SEQUANS, Chalmers University of Technology, King’s College London, Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya and CTAG.

CTAG will explain at JAI2018 its advances in BIG DATA technology

Jornadas de Automatización Industrial  JAI2018

CTAG will participate in the Industrial Automation Conferences (JAI2018) to show its innovations in the field of BIG DATA research, within the European project LICORNE (LIssage de COrdons Robotisé Novateur Expert).

LICORNE aims to optimise the application processes of body coatings, for which the sealing material is applied with a subsequent removal of the excess quantity (bead forming), in a way that always ensures the functionality of the application.

The project is led by PSA Groupe, with the participation of the following companies together with CTAG: Clemessy (France), working in the fields of robotics and machine vision; Ringler (Germany), offering solutions for the removal of excess material; and IS2M (France), which works in the field of materials to ensure properties that stabilize the process.

CTAG, which participates in the project in the field of BIG DATA, will explain at the conference the progress in the application of this technology. This system will inform the people in charge of the operation of the installation about the most suitable parameters, which allow the stability in the application of these coatings regardless of variations in the properties of the material, the process and the environmental parameters. It traces the information from the welding process to the bead forming process.

CTAG’s development also includes an information system for the monitoring, sharing and visualization of all collected data.

JAI2018 will take place at the Assembly Hall of the School of Industrial Engineering of Vigo (University Campus) from March 12th to 16th.

CTAG will participate in the European Robotics Forum (ERF2018)

European Robotics Forum

CTAG will share its experience in the development of exoskeletons for the industry on March 14, in the session “Wearable robots in industry: moving out of the lab” organized by COST workshop on Wearable Robots.

The industrial exoskeleton is one of the research areas in the Factory of the Future and Industry 4.0 at CTAG, where tests with diverse prototypes are carried out with the objective of improving the conditions of the worker.

The process can be divided into four phases: solution identification, laboratory validation, pilot testing and in-line testing. CTAG has implemented this test process in assembly plants for four exoskeletons, with different applications for the back, shoulder and hand.

ERF is the most influential meeting of robotic community in Europe, which brings together researchers, engineers, managers, entrepreneurs and business personnel to discuss topics which have an immediate impact on the European robotics.

The event will take place on 13, 14 and 15 March in Tampere (Finland).

Nuevos sistemas de evacuación de humos de combustión con minimización de la corrosión por presencia de condensados de nuevos combustibles y biomasa – COMICON

En el proyecto COMICON convergen diferentes sectores que han encontrado una problemática común: la corrosión generada por la presencia de condensados en sistemas de evacuación de humos de combustión. Esto implica la necesidad de obtener tecnologías más duraderas y resistentes a la corrosión generada por el empleo de diferentes combustibles cada vez más empleados en los sectores de energía y automoción, tales como biomasas y biodiesel, fuel de baja calidad y combustibles adulterados. El principal objetivo del proyecto COMICON es desarrollar nuevos productos frente a la corrosión generada por los humos de combustión con el fin de aumentar la vida útil de los sistemas de evacuación de gases, en condiciones de alta eficiencia.

Durante esta jornada, que se celebrará en las instalaciones de CTAG el día 30 de enero a las 11:00h, se presentarán los principales resultados obtenidos en el proyecto: Desarrollo módulo visualización para determinación de punto de rocío, generación y recogida de condensados en planta piloto, nueva gama de chimenea modular que reduce al mínimo la posibilidad de acumulación de condensados y mayor resistencia a corrosión, y nueva caldera de biomasa más compacta y modular, con alta eficiencia y durabilidad, y con un diseño que minimiza la aparición de condensados corrosivos.

El consorcio COMICON está formado por tres empresas, donde DINAK es el líder del proyecto, y otros dos referentes a nivel internacional en sus respectivos sectores: MECANIZADOS CASTRO y BORGWARNER. Además, cuentan con el apoyo del Centro Tecnológico de Automoción de Galicia (CTAG), del Centro Tecnológico AIMEN y la Universidad de Vigo, que cuentan con gran experiencia en I+D.
