Nowadays we are focused on 3 products – LMD robot, industrial delivery robot and vending robot. Our robots bring to our customers and to the whole community an ecological and effective solution which comes together with safety and flexibility.
C. BEST PUBLIC SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY SOLUTION
Managing public transport (PT) in large parts of the region located in the north of the city of Cuenca was challenging due to low population density: Outside peak hours, no efficient operation was possible until the introduction of the flexible services.
Since February 2022 PT services are offered line-based early in the morning (peak hours), and after that, it’s transformed into on-demand services connecting 112 towns, making a decisive contribution to improving public mobility in the region.
BUS4 ME: In the future, mobility will be driven by demand-sensitive transport services. This innovative and ambitious transport system helps improve sustainability and reduce carbon emissions. Taking mobility to a new level, allow users to design and maintain bus routes fully personalized that are adapted to the needs of day-to-day and ongoing basis.
MIIVO: Miivo Mobility is an app that aims to unify all the sustainable mobility options available in any city in a single application, which will allow users to access these services and pay for them without the need to have different accounts for each one. Thus, with Miivo, anyone will be able to travel wherever they want with the option that best suits their preferences: as the fastest, the cheapest or the most environmentally friendly.
D. BEST MOBILITY SOLUTION FOR CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
Liight is a digital solution that harmonises and optimises the fight against climate change transition towards a greener and digital world through gamification, smart-city systems and artificial intelligence. It collects data of mobility habits of its users and show their progress in Co2 reduction in a fun and educative way using rewards and competitions.
Let me Charge: LMC is a solution that aims for EV drivers, their mobility and environment concerns.
The main reason for drivers not to choose an EV is the concern of running out of battery and not being able to charge a car.
SALUCITY: This is a project that aims to optimise journeys between a healthcare professional and their patients by using technologies that allow the professional and the patient to select the most optimal routes and means of transport, including public transport, taxis, VTCs, bicycles and electric scooters.
E. BEST PROJECT ORIENTED TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY
Awareness is granted to construction of gigafactories for EV batteries, paving the way for electromobility & zero-emissions, but little thought is given to the end of their life cycle, including those already in use.
MAPFRE, as an insurer, is commited to minimizing the environmental impact of vehicles during their life cycle, but also when finally scrapped.
We retreive, fix, reuse and recycle betteries from crashed BEVs in our insured portfolio and give them further use and a second life cycle.
SOLUM: Solum is presenting its candidature to the best project in sustainable solution. Solum has developed the first 100% sustainable charging station oof the market thanks to the solar pavement technology.
CLUSTER ENERGIA – CECV: DIGICIRCULAR-BATT carries out industrial research on the management of batteries of EV, developing a methodology that enables the integrated management of these wastes in the framework of circular economy, to respond to a future demand for this type of mobility in Europe. It proposes an optimal management, analysis and reconditioning of used EV batteries for their viable composition as energy storage assets for use as support for electric renewables and in demand-side management strategies.
F. BEST USE OF TECHNOLOGY TO IMPROVE MOBILITY
AVENUE is a research project that has developed an AI-based decision support tool that allows the monitoring and assessment of the carbon footprint impact of different shared mobility regulatory frameworks and policy strategies to help cities plan and manage shared mobility systems more efficiently.
CSL: CSL Routers provide a private encrypted network and managed router solution that allows the control and continuity of connectivity to enable the use of EV chargers at parkingbays managed by Parkingeye. These managed routers are proactively monitored and remotely managed to ensure maximum uptime. This ensures that users have constant access to EV chargers and Parkingeye are able to ensure bays are not misused improving mobility for Electric Vehicles.
EMCIL: EMCIL solution will encourage the e-mobility adoption transition by rewarding the users for their e-mobility rides. Each time the user uses his/her electric vehicle (bicycle, scooter, car…), he/she will get a reward in our own cryptocurrency, the EVT. This can be exchanged to other cryptocurrencies and also to FIAT coins (EUR, USD).
To do this, the user only needs to have the EMCIL app installed in a smartphone, purchase a NFT according to his/her (own) model vehicle, and activate the GPS.
