The announcement boosts the race for new technologies in the autonomous and connected vehicle industries in the United States and opens up a major market for specialized startups.   Today, Business France and Bpifrance unveiled the 8 startups selected to participate in the 3rd edition of UbiMobility, an acceleration program in the connected and autonomous vehicle sector in the United States.    Beginning on June 3rd, the eight selected French companies will begin an intensive two-week immersion program presenting their technologies and developing partnerships with major U.S. players in the industry. UbiMobility will take the delegation to two major ecosystems in the automotive industry – Detroit/Ann Arbor and San Francisco / Silicon Valley.   Additionally, these eight startups will be part of a 10-month program where Business France will provide professional support, and guidance, in order to foster the relationships established between the French and American companies. For the third edition of UbiMobility, a jury comprised of representatives from key U.S. automotive companies selected the 8 startups from a pool of 20 pre-selected companies. The selected startups offer advanced technologies in the key areas of the connected and autonomous vehicles including advanced driving and safety, facial and vocal recognition, driver behavior and interaction, vehicle connectivity and software validation.   Supported by Bpifrance in their innovation efforts, most, if not all of these companies have made the United States their target market. Designed as a program to accelerate their integration onto the U.S. automotive industry, UbiMobility provides the opportunity for these eight companies to present their companies to the automakers, suppliers, VC, and research communities.   On site, each of them will benefit from personalized support from Business France. The goal is to build a lasting relationship with potential customers and strategic partners in the North American market.   The companies will receive coaching to adapt their message to the U.S. market. They will participate in targeted events bringing together the diverse members of the automotive / mobility communities and will benefit from a program of personalized BtoB meetings. While in the U.S., the UbiMobility delegation will meet with each jury member* and their autonomous and connected vehicle teams, including:   Ford Silicon Valley, Delphi, FCA, Valeo North America, The University of Michigan, WardsAuto, Magna International, The University of California – Berkeley and the Boston Consulting Group.    In addition to the jury, past meetings have included new automotive manufacturers and mobility companies such as Uber, Tesla, Faraday Future, Google, NVIDIA, venture capitalist firms and research institutions. This unique mixture of complete immersion and long-term professional support has demonstrated the program’s effectiveness of introducing French innovation onto the U.S. market.   Results from the first 2 editions of UbiMobility: - Coaching and development of 16 innovative startups and SMEs - 11 companies’ presence and expansion to the U.S. market (Actia, Vulog, Navya, Trust In Soft, - Roadeyes, Kronosafe, Optis, ESI Group, Prove & Run, Pradeo, Arkamys)   - Contracts or agreements signed for 75% of them (Actia, Vulog, Navya, Trust In Soft, Roadeyes, - Intempora, Krono-Safe, Optis, ESI Group, Prove & Run, Akoustic Arts, YoGoKo)   - 47.5 million euros raised for their international development   The stakes are high. Auto manufacturers, suppliers, Silicon Valley firms and local authorities are heavily invested in the development of autonomous and connected vehicles. The University of Michigan has developed Mcity, a unique test facility in the suburb of Ann Arbor, designed to test autonomous vehicles in real-life conditions. Thanks to UbiMobility, the 100 % electric and autonomous shuttle Navya was selected to be a part of the Mcity program. The integration of advanced technologies influences the emergence and deployment of the autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicle. According to the Boston Consulting Group, a majority of urban consumers are mostly in favor of autonomous cars (58% in France, 52% in the United States). This new mode of transportation has considerable perceived benefits (parking, the possibility using travel time to accomplish tasks ...). Its generalization should have a major impact on mobility solutions. Nevertheless, this will only be possible if the safety of the user is guaranteed. As Hadi Zablit, BCG’s Senior Partner and Managing Director Paris, points out, security remains a concern for a significant portion of consumers and remains a major impediment. This reality opens up important market prospects for technological solutions that will contribute to the reliability of the autonomous vehicle. * The Jury for UbiMobility 2017:   Dr. Dragos Maciuca, Technical Director and Senior Technical Leader, Ford Research & Innovation Center, Palo Alto Mr. Drew Winter, Editor-in-Chief, WardsAuto World magazine, Senior Editor, WardsAuto.com, WardsAuto Ms. Françoise Colpron, Group President, Valeo North America Mr. Xavier Mosquet, Senior Partner and Managing Director, Boston Consulting Group Dr. Huei Peng, Director of the University of Michigan Mobility Transformation Center Dr. Gary O’Brien, Global Director of Avanced Engineering, Delphi   ·          Mr. Bret Scott, Head of Silicon Valley Future Technologies, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles   Mr. Ian Simmons, Vice President Business Development and Research and Development, Magna International Mr. Thomas West, Director of PATH - Partners for Advanced Transportation Technology, The University of California - Berkeley   The 8 startups selected for UBIMOBILITY 2017   Acapela Acapela Transport invents speech solutions to vocalize contents with authentic and ultra-natural voices in the transportation market.

Laser Stripping Becomes a Reference in the Field of Cabling

PRESS - 06-déc.-2016 23:57:21

  Laser Stripping Becomes a Reference in the Field of Cabling Over the last two decades the aerospace industrial landscape has seen a tremendous surge in laser processing solutions (cutting, welding, marking, etc.). Electrical harness manufacturing is a booming sector driven by the strong growth of aircraft production and the race for autonomous cars (multiplication of sensors and multimedia systems, complexity of the harnesses). The use of high-precision laser solutions for marking or stripping of a lighter, technical and sensitive electric cable is constantly increasing. In recent years, cable laser stripping machines have followed a trend of sophistication, increased power, size and capacity to try to penetrate new markets in the industry. Laselec has chosen to work against the flow by relying on innovation, miniaturization, ergonomics and ease of use. Laselec has developed Sylade, a patented technology for contactless cable stripping based on laser diodes. Sylade technology is integrated in the field of aerospace cabling and offers a level of precision, quality and consistency far superior than that of traditional tools. Laser stripping is establishing itself as the best solution for the stripping of shielded, twisted and multi-filament cables and meets the new requirements of the aerospace standards ASD EN2812, SAE AIR6894 updated and published in recent months. The Sylade products - available as a stand-alone or integrated in an automated harness manufacturing solution- perfectly meets the need for stripping aluminum cables used in the transport sectors as well. Their use guarantess not to damage the ultra-sensitive strands of these new families of technical cables.

Smoove becomes the first operator to provide an African city with bike-sharing program

PRESS RELEASE - 07-nov.-2016 16:43:48

  Smoove to provide Marrakesh with self-service bike-sharing scheme   Smoove becomes the first operator to provide an African city with bike-sharing program     Marrakech will be the first city in Africa to implement a  bike-sharing scheme Launch of 300 self-service bikes for COP22 in Marrakesh (7 th -18 th November) Having already implemented self-service bike schemes in Moscow, Vancouver, Helsinki and Slough, Smoove aims to increase its international presence further and hopes to offer bike-sharing solutions in other parts of the UK. They are currently working on a ‘call for tender’ for a bike-sharing scheme in Brighton    Smoove won the tender organised by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) to roll out a fleet of self-service bikes for COP22, the UN Climate Change Conference, which is taking place from 7 th -18 th November 2016 in Marrakesh. Medina Bike , set up in partnership with local organisation ‘Estates Vision’, will be the equivalent of Boris Bikes in Marrakesh and the first city in Africa to benefit from such a scheme. The fleet, of 300 bikes and around 10 stations, will be installed in the most emblematic locations of the city, such as Koutoubia or Majorelle Garden. The service will be inaugurated for COP22 and will be maintained over time with a renewable contract for an initial term of five years. Similar to Moscow, Helsinki and Vancouver, the low-cost Medina Bike model will include the contribution of a sponsor, which has not yet been selected. Medina Bike is one of the ways to meet King Mohammed VI’s and the Moroccan Government’s goals on practical initiatives for sustainable development for COP 22. The project, which is an initiative of the Moroccan Ministry of the Environment, organised by UNIDO and funded by the Global Environmental Facility (GEF), confirms Morocco’s commitment to the fight against the negative impact of climate change. The twenty-second session of the Conference of Parties (COP22) will bring together 197 states and, according to the organisers, will be the COP of action. “ Bikes were once one of the main means of transport in Marrakesh, but have gradually lost ground. We hope that Medina Bike will bring about a cycling revolution. We are very proud to have won this prestigious tender. It marks our commitment to promote self-service bike-sharing schemes for more pleasant, greener cities. Thank you Marrakesh! The so-called ‘red city’ has made Smoove the first  bike-share provider in Africa! " explains Laurent Mercat, CEO of Smoove. Smoove is one of the leading bike-share providers in the world thanks to its innovative solutions: robust, smart bikes with embedded communication technology (‘Smoove Box’) and light, free-standing stations powered by solar energy with no major or civil works required for installation. Smoove’s technological know-how has enabled it to offer an ‘overflow’ feature so that a bike can be returned even if the station is full. Thanks to these competitive advantages, Smoove has experienced accelerated international growth this year. “ This project in Marrakesh is the perfect way to end a very busy and successful year for Smoove. In spring, we installed a fleet of 1,500 bikes in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, followed by fleets in Vancouver, Canada, in July and in Shymkent and Almaty in Kazakhstan later in the summer. We also carried out the second phase of roll-out in Moscow where there are now more than 3,450 bikes !" comments Hélène Papa, Marketing and Communication Manager. Well positioned to renew fleets in major cities “ Our facilities in major cities across the world theoretically make us a strong contender for the renewal of all the first generation contracts, such as Vélib in Paris ," adds Laurent Mercat, CEO of Smoove. Competing for the tender alongside Indigo, Moventia and their new shareholder Mobivia, all experts in the field, Smoove has been selected in the competitive dialogue procedure to renew the “Vélib” fleet in Paris. Their bid is in progress and the operator will be chosen in April 2017. Smoove generated €8 million (around £7.2million) in revenue in 2016. This revenue, like the number of employees, has doubled every two years since the company was formed. Their 2017 objectives are even more ambitious. Fifteen per cent of the revenue is reinvested in R&D to meet the demands of the city of the future (E Bike, bluetooth connection, mobile application, IoT, etc.) to better ‘facilitate sustainable mobility’.

LASELEC CELEBRATES 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH ELECTRICAL HARNESS AUTOMATION AT NBAA 2016

PRESS RELEASE - 17-oct.-2016 18:06:52

  Press release October 2016   LASELEC CELEBRATES 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH ELECTRICAL HARNESS AUTOMATION AT NBAA 2016 Founded in 2001, LASELEC designs and manufactures cutting-edge electrical wire processing equipment: UV laser wire markers, laser wire strippers, interactive harness assembly boards, harness braiding machines. This wide range of products demonstrates the company’s willingness for continuous innovation and leadership in the latest trends in aircraft electrical harness manufacturing – And that latest trend is AUTOMATION ! LASELEC will present its automatic solutions in a special presentation at the NBAA 2016 show:   The RAPIDSHARE Automated Wire Processing Line Prior to RapidShare being launched, the first step in the manufacturing process of an aerospace electrical harness started with the marking and cutting of wires. Next the operator had to manually group the batch of wires. Then the operator would label and sort those batches for production processing before sending them to the shop floor for assembly on a form board. Laselec has initiated the new trend in the harness manufacturing with GE Aviation being the first customer to experience an unprecedented level of automation. RapidShare is a solution designed to automate wire processing production.   The RapidShare robot arm, attached to the ULYS Modena laser wire marker, is able to perform automatic tasks such as:   labelling, stripping, crimping, bundling and kitting processes.   The operator is now free to handle multiple tasks/machines instead of operating a single marking machine for an entire shift. RapidShare’s compatibility with the ULYS Modena line of laser wire markers has allowed companies, such as Airbus Group which owns several Laselec’s markers, to   upgrade to the automated production system that has increased their competitiveness. Also on display during NBAA 2016, is the ALL NEW Sylade 7 laser wire stripper . The Laselec patented laser cutting technology is a safe solution for jacket stripping of MIL-SPEC cables. This all new version features a trigger sensor, auto-select strip lengths and a faster cutting process. With SYLADE, jacket stripping becomes SAFE, QUICK and FUN! The EasyWiring interactive harness form board will be on display at NBAA 2016 as well.   This digital wiring harness board replaces the traditional wooden boards. The embedded software provides a step by step guided assembly processes to increase manufacturing productivity and reduce cabling errors. In addition to Rapidshare, LASELEC has also launched its new over-braiding machine. The BRAIDO series provides complete automation for the production of overbraiding. The software, developed by LASELEC, offers many functions allowing a significant increase in productivity. BRAIDO customers especially appreciate the simplicity of the braiding operation as well as the machine’s impressive speed and low noise reduction. By networking different BRAIDO machines the operator can begin the work on one machine and transfer the job to another machine and still maintain the continuity of the traceability data.
