    CTAG showcases its latest advances in sustainable mobility in Barcelona

    We are happy to announce CTAG’s attendance on 05, 06 and 07 June 2023 at the world’s leading event for public transport: the UITP Global Transport Summit in Barcelona.

    This congress will bring together more than 15,000 international visitors and 380 exhibitors on more than 40,000 m² of exhibition space to showcase the latest innovations in the sector.

    CTAG will participate for the first time in this fair with a stand where visitors will be able to see our 100% electric shuttle, connected and with a level of autonomy 4, a vehicle that controls the conditions of the environment in which it is located, defining the route and responding to any situation.

    We encourage you to stop by our stand – 7F170, located in hall 7, where our colleagues will be happy to answer any questions you may have about our work or services.

    In addition, you can arrange a meeting directly with one of our managers by email: ctag@ctag.com

    We are taking our Shuttle to Lisbon to participate in the 15th ITS European Congress






    Once again this year we are travelling to the city where the ITS European Congress is being held to present our latest innovations in smart mobility. The event will take place from May 22 to 24, 2023 at the Congress Centre in Lisbon, Portugal.

    In this 15th edition, CTAG will participate in multiple ways:

    – We will be at stand B30 presenting our technologies and development capabilities in Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM).

    – We will carry out the demo “CTAG Autonomous Shuttle: a way of connecting Mobility”, where the public will be able to live the experience of a smart mode of transport equipped with cutting edge technologies capable of giving the vehicle the ability to communicate with the infrastructure or with other vehicles.

    – The director of the Electronics and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) division of CTAG, Francisco J. Sánchez Pons, will give a talk on the 24th, at 15:15h, entitled “Managing Urban Mobility Space – What can we expect from cities in the future”.

    – With the participation of Javier Vázquez on the 23rd at 11:45h, in the panel discussion “Data services for traffic management”.

    The ITS European Congress, organised by ERTICO, is a benchmark event in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). This year, 57 countries will be represented and more than 2,500 attendees are expected at an exhibition area of 3,500 m2.

    CTAG recognised as Technology Center of the Year

    Last week CTAG attended the IV International Congress of Energy Engineering (iENER’23) in Valencia, a national event that brings together multiple actors in fields related to Energy Engineering, such as sustainable mobility, smart cities, energy service companies…

    Over the two days of the event, our Shuttle was offering regular transport services around La Marina de Valencia, allowing everyone who got on board to enjoy a new form of 100% electric, connected and autonomous mobility.

    As part of this pilot, travellers were introduced to the Green Priority use case, a solution that allows the Shuttle to be connected to the traffic lights on its route, so that they change to green when they detect that the Shuttle is near.

    On the other hand, at the end of the first day of the congress, the AEE ANNUAL AWARDS were presented, a ceremony in which CTAG was recognised as “Technology Center of the Year”. The award was received by Francisco José Sánchez Pons, director of our Electronics and ITS division.

    We thank the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), a leading certification body for professional energy managers worldwide, for recognising our work on autonomous, connected and electric vehicles and towards the search for new models of sustainable mobility.

    We’re taking the SHUTTLE to Seville to participate in the XXIII Spanish and V Ibero-American ITS Congress

    Next 28th, 29th and 30th March, the ITS Congress (Intelligent Transport Systems) will be held in Seville, this year focusing on the “Deployment of ITS for sustainable mobility”.

    CTAG will be attending as a speaker with our Electronics and Intelligent Transport Systems Director, Francisco Sánchez Pons, in the context of Cooperative Systems and with the topic “Current global trends in autonomous and connected driving”.

    During this exhibition, he will present our 100% electric, connected and autonomous SHUTTLE, a sustainable mobility solution that can cover both short and long distance transfers.

    In addition, on the last day of the event, the annual ITS 2023 Sector Awards will be presented to organisations, projects and individuals. Within the latter group, one of the award winners will be our colleague Ana Paul, Director of Technological Innovation at CTAG. Congratulations!

    CTAG participates in Smart City Expo World Congress 2022

    This is the largest international event for cities involved in the development of smart mobility solutions. Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona brings together governments, institutions and companies to drive cities towards a better future.

    You can visit us at booth B200, where we will be presenting our latest mobility solutions, such as the autonomous and cooperative shuttle, CTAG’s 100% electric last-mile autonomous vehicle.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    CTAG leads the first public demonstration of autonomous driving supported by 5G technology on the border between Spain and Portugal

    These tests have been carried out within the framework of the 5G-MOBIX European project, focused on 5G technology for advanced Connected and Automated Mobility. The demonstrations carried out reveal the impact of the solutions tested in various scenarios of a dynamic border route characterized by the low latency and the service continuity enabled by the 5G network.

    At the Tui-Valença international bridge, with the 100% electric autonomous shuttle developed by CTAG, two main use cases were presented: speed adaptation, where the autonomous shuttle slows down or stops to avoid a pedestrian thanks to the information provided by the infrastructure and the 5G network; and remote driving in a critical situation, where the vehicle relinquishes control to an operator to drive remotely from the control centre.

    CTAG’s tracks also hosted live tests within the framework of the 5G-MOBIX project. Specifically, tests were carried out where an autonomous vehicle, in transit alongside non-connected vehicles, receives, through 5G, information on the position of the vehicles in the main lanes (for example, on a motorway), predicts their trajectories and adapts the speed for a safe merging manoeuvre.

    Other tests focused on updating maps in real time: when the autonomous vehicle receives information from the traffic management centre about road works; the vehicle onboard unit receives the information, compares it with its own map, and concludes that its internal map is out of date. At that moment, it prompts the driver to take control and begins to record the information captured by the sensors. Once the vehicle has cleared the road works, it continues its way, in autonomous mode, and the on-board unit sends the data recorded by the sensors, via 5G, to the ITS Centre, which processes everything and generates a new map in HD. This new map is sent by the 5G network to nearby vehicles so that they can clear the road works autonomously.

    Nearly one hundred technicians and representatives of the different project partners attended the presentation of the results of the 5G-M project and the live tests.

    An autonomous vehicle designed by CTAG performs its first public tests in Arteixo

    This morning the first open to the public tests of CTAG’s last-mile autonomous vehicle took place in Arteixo. The town mayor and the neighbors have had the opportunity of being the first to enjoy a ride on the 100% electric Shuttle.

    The tests took place throughout the morning from Sabón beach car park, showing the joint work that Arteixo town council and CTAG are doing and revealing the solutions that this connected vehicle brings to mobility and as a complement to other transport services.
