Trustworthy forever


Independent Certification for CPS

With the increasing introduction of embedded software and electronics in the infrastructure and with systems becoming interconnected, society as such is becoming highly dependent on the correct functioning of these systems. Besides the economic necessity, there is also a growing safety and security risk whereby single failures can be very disruptive and even catastrophic.

Packet Switching for Mobility: Bringing It All Together in the Smart City

Altreonic has published a new article on the Move Forward website

This is the 4th part of the series on applying packet switching for mobility. In this article, we bring it all together. In attachment the complete series of four articles in a single text.

 

Packet switching for Mobility: measuring mobility efficiency

Altreonic has published a new article on the Move Forward website. Below the abstract:

In earlier sections we advocated applying some of the principles of packet switching, the backbone technology of Internet and telecom, to mobility and transport. After all, the similarity is clear. Packets carry bits, vehicles carry people and goods. How should we measure its efficiency?

Videoclip with KURT

Altreonic has released a first video clip showing off the capabilities of the KURT first production prototype.

Altreonic invited speaker at HIPEAC, Spring CSW in Porto

Eric Verhulst will be speaking at the Spring Computer Systems Week in Porto, presenting at a thematic session on Program transformation and analysis approaches for future computing systems (ProTrans). Title of the presentation: "From CSP to Interacting Entities for programming and modelling". Details can be found here.

Packet switching for mobility: The cost, ride and vehicle sharing app

Altreonic has published a new article on the Move Forward websiteBelow the abstract:

In an earlier article, we advocated applying some of the principles of packet switching, the backbone technology of internet and telecom, to mobility and transport. After all, the similarity is clear. Packets carry bits, vehicles carry people and goods. In a first of a series of three articles, we'll explore some possibilities. We'll start by analysing the impact of sharing vehicles.

E-mobility Reinvented 27-28 April, 2016 | Berlin, Germany

Altreonic will be exhibiting and presenting at the IDTechEx conference/exhibition in Berlin 27-28 April 2016. Altreonic will provide a presentation "KURT E-Vehicle For Enabling Urban Mobility: Versatile, Scalable And Cost-Efficient".

Visit us in the exhibition hall booth I13.

Peter Harrop, Chairman of the IDTechEx market research company : “Years ago I pointed out that the 100 or so manufacturers of car- like specialist electric vehicles should not design every one from scratch but have a common platform. The industry is ridiculously fragmented. Altreonic’s KURT vehicle is one of the first that has the potential to overcome this uneconomic fragmentation”.

Dr. Bodo Schwieger from Team Red (an international consultancy firm on mobility and transport), stated in an interview: “Amongst the mobility solutions of 150 providers we evaluated, the modularity of the KURT concept is unique”.

Steer by Web for KURT

Altreonic has demonstrated for the first time "steer by web" capability for its KURT vehicle. Using a camera input and a smartphone, the vehicle was remotely steered over internet using a web application. Even with the application server and the vehicle being widely apart (about 3000 km) and using a standard ADSL connection, the control was with minimal delay. This brings KURT in the domain of Internet of Things, enabling semi-autonomous driving for a fleet of KURT vehicles. 

The KURT light-weight vehicle is completely modular and driven by a redundant software and hardware architecture. Internally, Altreonic's VirtuosoNext network-centric RTOS is used to execute the distributed control strategy of 4 independent wheels each with their own motor. Further work will focus on increasing security and error resilience. For more information, contact Altreonic.

KURT at Autotechnica 2016 Brussels

Altreonic has been showcasing the KURT production prototype at Autotechnica 2016 in Brussels Expo from 20st to 23rd March 2016. Altreonic was guest at the TRAXIO booth. Traxio is the Belgian federation of the automotive industry in Belgium. We had the pleasure to welcome the Federal and Flemish ministers of Mobility, Mme Galant and Mr. Weyts.

The exhibition was cut short following the blind terror attacks on 22nd March in Brussels. All our sympathies to all victims of this senseless violence.
