Last month was not quite ordinary for FAAR, but do you know why? No ? So let me explain you !
Lately, FAAR was in Russia, more precisely in Skolkovo, Moscow. There, FAAR & Skolkovo foundation together signed a Collaboration Agreement intending to develop an Innovation Open Lab within the Tech Ecosystem. First step for the Lab would be to launch a technological project of Smart Mobility Services welcoming local partners and startups. This infrastructure should start operating around the beginning of October.
During the Startup Village event which took place from May 31st to June 1st, the participants received exclusive information, the opportunity to be the first to discover the concept of the laboratory and to discuss about technological trends.
The goal of such a partnership ? Collaborative Innovation
Just to remind, FAAR is an Electronic equipment supplier, expert in embedded control and power electronic systems. The Skolkovo Foundation is a non-profit organization created at the initiative of the Russian President in September 2010. Together we consider that Russia is a ground for of technological & business development, a huge playground for experimentations and also an incredible gold mine for engineering resources, who’s competencies are famous all over the world.
FAAR expects of this partnership the opportunity to develop and apply products & services transforming the myth of robot vehicles from science-fiction into concrete solutions for safer, sustainable and autonomous mobility.
As FAAR’s motto is « DRIVE Innovation to the Market », so our main goal is not only making experimentations and technical feasibility Proof of Concept projects, but bring solutions and adapt them regarding Russian’s market & needs.
We are very grateful to Skolkovo for their friendly welcome and logistic help and are happy to continue this exciting adventure to the new usage of Smart Mobility.
