Special week for FAAR in Skolkovo

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.

#SaveTheDate: FAAR at Las Vegas’ CES!

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Well you’re wrong. There is one exception to this rule: if you ever find yourself attending the most advanced convention in #high-tech innovation – the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) – it is your duty to tell everyone about it.

At FAAR Industry we may have used a convoluted way to announce our trip to this Mecca of new technology, but that’s because we’re really excited. We will be showcasing our full autonomous driving kit – FaarGO – at the same convention that brought the concept of the VCR to the world in 1970. And you know what ? … This year, the CES is dedicating 85 000 m² of exhibit space to vehicle technologies and autonomous driving.

For the first time, we’re introducing the public to this new easy way of transforming any vehicle into an autonomous shuttle packed with mature innovative solutions. In partnership with ISFM, we have designed a smart, simple, and cost-breaking autonomous vehicle that can later become one of many #AD fleets: through #platooning technologies, our software system makes it easy to transform one shuttle into a large fleet driverless train, transporting up to 30 people.

This little piece of high tech is designed with a reduced AI, making it open, adaptive and scalable, without ever compromising safety and reliability. This robustly engineered smart AD system comes with ADAS evolutive architecture, specific software and its dedicated and certified automotive ECU: it is literally an all-in-one solution. Follow us at CES from January 9th through 12th,  we will be live-twitting updates.

You can also get more information on FaarGO – our amazing AD kit – right here.

What an exciting new year 2018 is promising to be!

Randolph Toom gives compelling interview at #AVS – Autonomous Vehicle Symposium

Summer has come to an end but the excitement from having been part of the 2017 Autonomous Vehicle Symposium hasn’t faded yet. FAAR is still reaping the benefits of meeting so many important #AutonomousMobility actors, and we’re delighted that we’ve been given another chance to share with you a little more about what we do.

Indeed, on behalf of FAAR, our Innovation Director – Randolph Toom, was interviewed by the organizers of the AVS and proudly represented our offering. He explained how we support this growing revolution in smart mobility by making it easier for companies around the world to bring the fruit of their idea to a POC and then to serial market solutions.

Randolph gives a detailed summary of our long-term vision and describes the off-the-shelf and bespoke electronic control & power solutions we provide, as well as our open innovation platform, Self-e-Car, aimed to implement the technological bricks of companies in order to experiment and showcase them in real conditions.

You can watch the interview by playing the video below, or by following this link. Enjoy.

We are at AUTONOMY event

The advent of #SmartMobility is well on its way, and the increase of events organized around this revolution is proof. One of the most interesting festival of the sort is getting very close, it is a summit at which FAAR Industry will be represented by Randolph TOOM, our Director of Innovation. Indeed, the aptly named Autonomy convention taking place in Paris on the 19th, 20th and 21st of October is inviting Randolph to speak at the Electric Road Round Table along with Nicolas De Crémiers (Head of Marketing at Navya) and Thomas Chrétien (Electric Vehicles Director at Nissan West Europe).

This conference will see the three experts talk about the future of electric vehicles, Randolph will debate on the autonomous counterpart & the embedded electronic solutions. The whole panel will deal with the upcoming V2G technology that will see them both connected to the grid.

Come take part in this discussion about EVs, AEVs and V2G, it will be held on Oct 19th, at 10am at the Grande Halle of la Vilette, Paris. 

Hope to see you there!

Let’s meet at #AVS in Stuttgart & talk about robotizing & automation of vehicles

FAAR Industry is delighted to take part in one of the most important events in the field of autonomous mobility: the Autonomous Vehicle Symposium of Stuttgart. The convention will bring us together with the world’s leading engineers in the field of autonomous vehicle research, testing, validation and development.

And there’s no better way to kick-start an event of this magnitude than meeting up for a tech show! We would like to exchange with you about Collaborative Autonomous Vehicle Development Process.

We believe you will be part of that select crowd so a tech show wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t all take the opportunity to mix and mingle afterwards. Please join us for a debate and cocktail on this exciting first day of the convention (June 20th at 6pm) #AV5010. Ample information and free tickets can be found at this location.

But wait! There’s more! FAAR Industry and – its subsidiary & partner – Pronergy will be attending two other world renowned events in the field of mobility: the Bourget Paris Air Show as well as the ITS European Congress of Strasbourg. You can quench your thirst for details on our appearance at these three unique events if you follow this little link. 

Let’s meet together next week.
