ETRA GROUP played a leading role in the meeting “Sustainable and digital reindustrialization: the great challenge”, organized by AMETIC

The Multisectoral Association of Spanish Electronics and Communications Companies (AMETIC) held a few dates ago the 36th edition of the Digital Economy and Telecommunications Meeting under the title “Sustainable and digital reindustrialization: the great challenge” and in which ETRA GROUP played a leading role.

The main public and private players in the technology industry met once again this year at the benchmark event for the sector in Spain to discuss the present and future of a sector that has a significant impact on the economic, industrial and social development of the country.

Innovative solutions for real problems

Antonio Marqués, ETRA’s Director of Technology and Innovation, participated on behalf of the business group as a speaker at the round table “Energy Management of Smarticities”, moderated by Adolfo Borrero, President of the Smart Cities Commission of AMETIC.

The round table highlighted the need to empower public managers to improve the use of their resources, as well as to encourage citizens to decide on the future of their cities.

In this sense, Marqués offered details about ELECTRA, the solution that ETRA proposes for the electrification of public transport fleet depots, which is called to play a key role in the process of digital and ecological transformation of urban public transport, a fundamental element in the decarbonization of our cities.

From ETRA GROUP we provide the technology that manages more than 25,000 public transport vehicles worldwide, as well as more than 10,000 traffic-light intersections. The strong investment we make in R&D&I, together with our more than 40 years in the market, allows us to respond with the most advanced technological solutions to the most complex challenges.

ETRA GROUP presents its latest innovations in technology at the “EuroScience Open Forum 2022”

Last July, ETRA, as a partner of the European MAtchUp project, participated in the “EuroScience Open Forum 2022” (ESOF2022), the largest interdisciplinary meeting on science and innovation in Europe.

The tenth edition of ESOF2022, under the theme “Crossing borders, engaged science, resilient societies”, addressed the current need to pool scientific knowledge to solve the challenges jointly and innovatively we face today. The meeting aims to create strong alliances between scientists, policy makers, media and the general public to tackle today’s complex problems.

Innovative technologies from ETRA

During the event, three innovative technologies carried out by ETRA GROUP were presented:

  1. The platform for the management of electric vehicle charging points,
  2. The tool for detecting free parking spaces using artificial intelligence techniques,
  3. The web application aimed at users, which helps them to find parking spaces with available charging points.

 

ETRA is in the top 1% of the most innovative companies in Europe. Thanks to the strong investment in R&D&I, the group participates in the development of new tech trends, provides solutions to specific societal problems and collaborates with the most advanced tech players of the world in the context of the European Union’s framework programmes.

ETRA presents the European project USER-CHI at the ITS European Congress

USERCHI, a European project framed in the Horizon 2020 program, has as main objective to promote electric mobility in Europe. The representatives of this project had the opportunity to participate in the main event of intelligent transport systems in Europe this year, held from May 30 to June 1 in the city of Toulouse.

Indeed, ETRA I+D participated in the ITS European Congress presenting the project during the Special Interest Session 53 on “Improving EV Charging infrastructure in European urban areas”.

During this session, the improvement in the user experience in the recharging of electric vehicles was examined and the most recent advances to convert the recharging of electric vehicles into a more sustainable, accessible and economically profitable process were shown. Finally, two other projects on charging electric vehicles, eCharge4Drivers and INCIT-EV, were discussed.

The session was moderated by Dr. Evangelia Portouli (ICCS, Greece) together with the speakers Anagnostopoulou (ICCS, Greece) and Lieselot Vanhaverbeke (VUB, Belgium) for the eCharge4Drivers project. The INCIT-EV project was represented by Maurizio Arnone (LINKS Foundation, Italy); and the USER-CHI project was presented by María Tomás (ETRA, Spain) and Silvia Valero (Barcelona Metropolitan Area, Spain).

Together, they shared actions to seamlessly and efficiently integrate electric vehicle recharging infrastructures. As well as innovative solutions for the adoption of recharging electric vehicles in urban areas and in interurban corridors were also proposed.

The USERCHI project is part of the enormous R&D activity that ETRA develops at a national and European level (H2020 and Horizon Europe), and which aims to transform the most advanced technologies into solutions that allow improving the quality of people and protect the planet.
