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.
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.
FAAR Industry offers a specialized training program on development techniques implemented in automotive, para-automotive and also in Mechatronics fields.
The Open Day of Training “Model Based Design Development Approach ” represented by Mr. Emmanuel D’ARFEUILLE, Technical Director of FAAR Industry, will take place at the HQ of the ESI2A school, Park Shore in Fez, Thursday, June 11, 2015, from 2 to 6 pm.
The program is following :
1. Presentation of Model Based Design Methodology,
2. Electronic system study,
3. Sensors/actuators/ECU interconnection,
4. Reading of sensors acquisition,
5. Actuators driving and controlling.
The objective of the training is to share the knowledge and skills of the MBD methodology on the example of the mechanical and electronic units in the vehicle.
This training is intended for:
• Engineering schools who wish to deepen their knowledge of industrial tools
• Companies whose staff wishes to perfect the use of MBD tools and pplied to the automobile
