Electric bicycles set to hit Amaravati roads

Purva Marwaha - 01-déc.-2016 06:35:26
Chennai-based varsity makes a proposal for introduction of ‘smart’ transport in the region Will an electric bicycle hit it big in Amaravati, the new capital of Andhra Pradesh? The answer could be ‘yes’ if Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu who has a penchant for all things ‘smart’ approves of a proposal by the Chennai-based Veltech Dr. RR & Dr. SR University. A team representing the university is in the city to meet Mr. Naidu on Wednesday and put forth a proposal to introduce ‘smart’ eco-friendly transport in the form of an innovative blue-tooth-embedded e-bicycle in the Amaravati region. The university has developed a prototype of what it claims socially relevant technology with high impact on society, in partnership with Francecol Technology, a French company. The project was recently approved under Industry-Academia Research and Development Programme and funded by Indo-French Centre for Promotion of Advance Research (CEFIPRA). “We wanted to develop an embedded wheel drive electric motor with special design features for superior performance at lower cost when compared to the electric cycles currently available. One of the aim was to develop motors without permanent magnets. This technology has spin-off applications in wheel chair and other electric vehicles. The product will be marketed in India and Europe,” said Francois Bernot of the French firm. Veltech and FranceCol are contributing to the design and technology area while the French University partner Centrale Superlec at Gif sur Yvette will analyse and test the product and Indian industry partners Joshi Electronics & Electrical Pvt. Ltd, Pune and Gurgaon-based Turnpoint Technologies are responsible for manufacture of prototypes and commercial operations.   Objective “Our concept’s first objective is to create an electric assistance for bicycles and wheel chairs by integrating our ultra thin and high frequency electric engine to one of its wheels with its power electronics and sensor. This innovation is a result of seven years of research and development. Applied to an aeronautic system, tested and approved, this engine has the advantage of being simple to build and economical,” said Dr Francois Bernot. “Imagine if the city has 10,000 such bicycles, the roads would turn into paradise,” said U. Chandrasekhar, Pro Vice-Chancellor of the university. The university has developed four such cycles.   “The cost factor may come down once we start mass production,” said Mr. Chandrasekhar.   Source: The Hindu, 29th November 2016

Centum Electronics acquires French Adetel Group

Purva Marwaha - 27-juin-2016 11:58:16
Centum Electronics acquires French Adetel Group   NEW DELHI: Bangalore-based Centum Electronics has announced its acquisition of Adetel Group of France. Adetel specializes in design, development and industrialization of embedded electronic systems for defence, aerospace, industrial, transportation, medical and energy sectors. Centum Electronics will hold 51% percent controlling stake in Adetel Group. At the launch announcement, Apparao Mallavarapu, Chairman and Managing Director – Centum Electronics said “The acquisition now makes Centum Electronics one of the forerunners in the market, enhancing the company’s already expanding growth and performance. Adetel brings in excellent services and an established customer base. This would be a pioneer step into entering new markets, giving us enormous opportunities since we have a very unique proposition of design and hightech manufacturing capabilities. This is also in tune with Prime Minister Modi’s vision of Make in India initiative.” Francois Sebes, CEO of Adetel, said “I firmly believe that the strengthening of the capital base with a recognized Indian group such as CENTUM is a great opportunity for the development and growth of Adetel Group. I can see several major industrial interests, first of all the presentation of an integrated vertical offer in our company’s core business markets: Aeronautics, Defense, Medical, Transport and Industrial. Secondly, this is time for a local presence – we will open a group subsidiary in the Indian continent where CENTUM is a key player. Thanks to a commercial and customer portfolio complementarity, Adetel is consolidating its position towards its main customers. Becoming a supplier associated with a bigger group, Adetel will be capable of assisting its clients and partners in their own development strategy across global markets.” The new partnership translates to greater international presence for the group, both in terms of operations and scale for its products, technologies and competencies. The group can leverage on the high technology capabilities and creativity of Adetel along with the cost competitiveness of India and Centum in particular to increase their market share in global markets. Apparao added “This acquisition is a result of perfect synergies between two companies, ensuring greater value creation for our customers. We can now accelerate growth, fill product portfolio gaps, improve our market position, benefit from the use of even more advanced technology and of course, establish a wider, more international presence in operations and sales with facilities in France, Canada, US and Morocco.”   Source:  http://www.voicendata.com/centum-electronics-acquires-french-adetel-group/
