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.

Reliability for KURT

How do companies tackle technological challenges?

During this Seminar Day, engineers, researchers and R&D managers from the manufacturing industry will come together to learn more about the results of some of our recent projects. 

More specifically, Altreonic will show how POF reliability prediction and analysis at system level is applied by Altreonic for developing the KURT e-mobility vehicle. The process covers from selection of components and sub-system modules as well as the software architecture.

Date:  28/09/2017 – De MontilMoortelstraat 8, 1790 Affligem

Build your own KURT e-vehicle

The City-KURT e-vehicle is based on a lightweight modular and scalable platform. Kickstart your own vehicle by just buying an easy to assemble propulsion platform and design your own “superstructure”. A minimal platform will have 1 main box and 2 suspension boxes with wheels, a larger platform can have up to 16 main boxes. Each main box measures W 200 x L 600 mm. Additional adapter boxes allow to tune the length in units of 100 mm. As the vehicle is controlled by software, many steering options are possible (front or rear-wheels only, skid steering as well as crab-steering). Each pair of wheel is typically coupled in an Ackerman configuration while a torsion bar is used to improve the passive safety.
As each wheel has its own motor, the performance can be tuned by selecting different wheels, motors and batteries. The vehicle controllers can be redundant and using the platform sensors provide for a safe and flexible control. Remote monitoring and control over a smartphone is an option.
Contact us for a suitable configuration that meest your needs. Volume discounts avalaible as well as licensing and franchising options. Become a partner of the KURT family!

KURT brengt elektromobiliteit dichterbij

Een artikel over het KURT concept werd opgenomen in Bits&Chips, nadien overgenomen door Mechatronica&Machinebouw. Voor de Nederlandstalige lezer biedt het een beknopt overzicht van de ontstaansgeschiedenis en het onderliggende modulaire en schaalbare platform. Ondertussen werd dit al uitgewerkt in meerdere versies gaande van een specifiek platform voor gebruik in ziekenhuizen, transport en mobiliteit in de binnenstad en zwaar logistiek transport op luchthavens.
