Exclusive pre-sales of City-KURT CK1

The City-KURT CK1 is a novel type of personal electric vehicle, a perfect blend between a e-bike and a micro-car. You can drive it without a license on pavements and bicycle paths respecting the speed control limits. You can bring along up to 50 kg in the large trunk or choose a customised vehicle that fits your specific needs.

Optionally, when communication between a dispatch center and the driver is desirable, a smartphone with app can be provided. This allows to monitor a fleet of vehicles, monitor the vehicle status and provide help or give instructions.

The City-KURT CK1 is electronically controlled. It has two active wheels that provide for easy manoeuvrability and fast acceleration. Its powerful batteries can cover up to 50 km. They recharge during the night or when parked. KURT provides the lowest air and noise pollution at the lowest energy cost, yet it takes less space than standard vehicles.

The City-KURT CK1 can also be customised for different usages and equipped with stronger motors and more powerful batteries if needed.

Personal vehicle: small and safe, take it for short trips to visit friends, family or to go shopping.

Personal golf cart: small and comfortable, use it on the golf course and carry your golf equipment.

Food delivery: transport the pizza and food orders in an insulated cargo box.

Emergency services: in crowded areas a fast intervention is difficult. Use a small CK1 and quickly drive with emergency equipment to where help is needed.

Professional services. For those who provide services at home and need to carry basic equipment. With the CK1, you can get anywhere.

Light Logistics. Last mile deliveries for parcels and mails.

Security services. Patrolling the streets or sites and taking essential equipment with you.

Altreonic delivers KURT-H1 for hospitals

Altreonic has delivered a KURT-H1 e-vehicle to the University Hospital of Leuven (Campus Gasthuisberg), the largest hospital in Belgium with more than 9000 employees, over 2000 available beds and 4000 visitors a day. Responding to the need of transporting both patients and visitors in a timely and safe manner, the KURT-H1 is capable of simultaneously transporting one person in a wheelchair, two passengers and the driver. The KURT-H1 vehicle only measures 103 cm wide by 160 cm long. The Altreonic team sought in cooperation with the hospital for the best solution in a challenging setting. Wheelchairs are very divergent, elevators and corridors can be narrow and have tight corners. The KURT-H1 project at UZ Leuven was able to demonstrate the benefits of the modular and flexible KURT-concept for e-vehicles. Altreonic is able to adapt the KURT concept to a wide range of settings and capabilities. The KURT-H1 is a lot of vehicle in a small package.

What does it take to make automated driving come true?

Today, the entire automotive world is working hard to enable automated driving, building on innovations in electronics. What that really means, Maurice Geraets, Board Member NXP Netherlands, explains you during his keynote presentation at SSIS 2017 on October 17.

For more updates on Smart Vehicles you need to be at the Smart Vehicles track. There Daniel van Nieuwenhove of SoftKinetic gives you for example an overview of the different depth sensing technologies and presents the progress on SoftKinetic’s own DepthSense® technology and its usage inside a car. Stefan Dutré of Siemens Industry Software tells you why autonomous driving needs a new way of thinking and how these challenges can be tackled. Other speakers in the Smart Vehicles track are Eric Verhulst of Altreonic and Bart Truyen of eXIa.
