CTAG announces once again its participation in the eMobility Expo World Congress 2024. This international congress, dedicated to sustainable, connected and autonomous mobility, provides a unique space to exchange knowledge and move towards a more sustainable future in the mobility sector.
We will have a space in Hall 5, at booth B224, so that visitors can come and explore recent projects first-hand, meet our experts and obtain detailed information about CTAG’s activities.
In addition, we will take advantage of this scenario to share the latest research, developments and advances in the field of sustainable mobility through multiple panel discussions:
- New propulsion technologies architecture – Jorge Varela Barreras, EV and Battery expert, CTAG
- New materials for the new vehicles – Alberto Tielas Macia, Head of the Interior Materials and Systems Department, CTAG
- Autonomous vehicles (cars & buses) – Francisco Sánchez Pons, Director of Electronics, ITS and Smart Mobility at CTAG
These discussions will be an opportunity for those interested in learning about the latest trends and future perspectives of the sector.
We will also offer an autonomous and connected driving experience aboard our shuttle in the Feria de Valencia square, a demonstration of what the mobility of the future will be like, last-mile, electric, smart, connected and driverless.
You can contact us to arrange a meeting at the congress by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
El Centro Tecnológico de Automoción de Galicia (CTAG) lidera la revolución del vehículo eléctrico y conectado (VEC) en España a través de su participación en los proyectos clave “Entornos de Test para la Movilidad Conectada (ETMC)” y el proyecto “Soluciones Digitales y Datos para una Movilidad Avanzada (DyD)”, dentro del marco estratégico para la Recuperación y Transformación Económica.
CTAG se centra en el impulso de la fabricación competitiva del VEC, especialmente en el ámbito de la conectividad.
- Entornos de Test para la Movilidad Conectada (ETMC) [VEC-020 100-2022-212]: Proyecto clave del PERTE.VEC con 9 socios nacionales de proyección internacional. Su objetivo es investigar tecnologías para optimizar las comunicaciones vehiculares para VEC, creando entornos y protocolos de prueba de cara a lograr una movilidad conectada, inteligente, segura e inclusiva.
- Soluciones Digitales y Datos para una Movilidad Avanzada (DyD) [VEC-020100-2022-219]: Proyecto del PERTE.VEC dedicado a generar conocimiento y soluciones digitales avanzadas para acelerar la digitalización en el diseño, desarrollo y ensayo de tecnologías de VEC, siendo esencial en la cadena de movilidad.
Gracias a la financiación otorgada a ambos proyectos por el Ministerio de Industria, Comercio y Turismo (MINCOTUR) bajo los fondos Next Generation de la UE, CTAG se consolida como actor clave en la configuración del futuro de la movilidad conectada. Aportamos innovación y conocimientos que impulsan el avance tecnológico en el sector de automoción español.
From November 7th to 9th 2023, we will participate once again in the Smart City Expo World Congress in the city of Barcelona, the world’s leading event on urban innovation:
More than 25,000 attendees
More than 1,000 exhibitors from across the mobility ecosystem
More than 800 cities and 140 countries
More than 600 international speakers, representatives of cities, institutions, research centers and companies
We will share with them our most innovative technological solutions to redefine cities towards a better future, with safer, greener, more efficient and smarter urban spaces.
From booth number 149 in hall 2, we will offer our visitors the opportunity to see up close and even get into one of our innovations in smart, autonomous, multimodal, sustainable and connected mobility: CTAG’s 100% electric Shuttle, a level 4 autonomous last-mile vehicle.

The Facendo 4.0 project (Factory Competitiveness and Electromobility through iNnovation and Digital transformation 4.0), led by Stellantis Vigo and with the participation of CTAG, Gradiant, AIMEN and the UniversIdade de Vigo has culminated its development after 31 months of implementation, with a closing ceremony at the headquarters of Stellantis in Vigo.
The event was attended by Patricia Argerey, Director of the Axencia Galega de Innovación (GAIN), and leaders of all the organisations involved.
Facendo 4.0 is an R&D project initiated in 2020, focused on industrial research and experimental development to increase competitiveness and strengthen the expertise of the business network of the automotive sector in Galicia.
During this project, 157 actions have been executed or implemented in the technological areas of the Factory of the Future, Vehicle of the Future, and Connectivity and Information Technologies.
800,000 hours of research and advanced engineering have been dedicated to the innovations developed, giving rise, up to now, to 10 registered patents.
The partners of Facendo 4.0 have invested 22.3 million euros, with a public aid of 12.2 million euros from the Department of Economy, Industry and Innovation of the Xunta de Galicia, through the Axencia Galega de Innovación (GAIN), co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Autonomous driving tests have begun on the A55 International Bridge that connects Spain with Portugal, which also belongs to the SISCOGA4CCAM corridor. This Spain-Portugal cross-border corridor connects the cities of Vigo and Porto and covers the entire value chain, including car manufacturers, telecommunications companies, public administrations and research institutions.
The tests will be carried out within the framework of the 5GMOBIX project during the months of March, April and May. The main objective of 5G-MOBIX is to lay the foundation for the deployment of 5G CCAM services and applications and to give a big boost in both countries towards the development of opportunities around 5G in the ITS sector. Furthermore, this cross-border corridor will explore the challenges of seamless interoperability between different countries and between different types of operators (public and private). The aim of this project is to develop a global 5G architecture that offers highly robust and low latency connectivity services for safety applications, provide high precision 5G positioning solutions, demonstrate and validate the concepts developed, and quantify the benefits of this technology in terms of driving.
These tests are carried out with the support of the competent traffic management authorities, such as the Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT), Infraestructuras de Portugal, S.A., the Instituto da Mobilidade e dos Transportes, and the Ministerio de Transportes, Movilidad y Agenda Urbana, who authorize and facilitate the management of road closures necessary for the execution of tests with 5G technology in the safest possible way.
The tests being performed include various autonomous driving use cases in urban and interurban environments. Among these use cases the Overtaking, Lane Merge and HD Maps manoeuvres stand out, carried out with autonomous and connected vehicles capable of integrating 5G technology to increase the response capacity in manoeuvres.

CTAG participated in the 5G FORUM, a multidisciplinary meeting on 5G technology. Diego Bernárdez, Head of the Connectivity Department at CTAG, presented a paper on Cooperative systems and V2X communications. Protocols in DSRC (ITS-G5) and 5G. One of CTAG’s connected vehicles was also shown to present attendees its operation and performance.
The event, held on April 24 and 25 at the Polo de Contenidos Digitales in Malaga, offered a broad view on the different applications of this technology, from artificial intelligence to health and telemedicine. This is the first edition of the event whose objective is to show on stage every year the advances of 5G technology and offer the opportunity to exchange knowledge about its practical applications.
Outstanding companies involved in the use of 5G technologies shared their experiences and performed demonstrations for the attending professionals.
