Projects

The Irizar Group is currently actively involved in major European projects for the future electrification of cities and public passenger transport. This international dimension can be seen in projects such as autonomous driving, improvements in energy storage systems, energy efficiency, standardisation of charging systems, connectivity, big data or artificial intelligence.

Autonomous vehicles

The goal of the AUTOMOST "Dual Transport System Automatic Guidance" is to develop technologies that make it possible to automate vehicles for urban and industrial transport applications in order to significantly increase efficiency, safety and sustainability. It is financed by the CDTI (Centre for Industrial Technological Development) of the Ministry of Economy of Spain. The demonstrator of a dual-mode bus will function as a commercial shuttle at the cruise terminal in the port of Malaga. Testing will take place during a number of months in real traffic conditions.

AUTODRIVE is a European Commission funded programme involving a consortium of more than 40 companies from the automotive world. AutoDrive brings together leading companies, suppliers, manufacturers and research centres from the European semiconductor industry to create a pan-European ecosystem with the critical mass needed to create standards and provide components and sub-systems for driverless vehicles.The results of AutoDrive will significantly contribute to safer and more efficient mobility.

Energy efficiency

EBSF2 (European Bus System Of The Future 2)

The European Bus System of the Future 2 project, financed by the H2020 programme of the European Commission, involves the development and validation of different solutions combining the efficiency of bus systems in an organized way with the objective of reducing the energy consumption of electric buses. Currently work is taking place to demonstrate advanced energy efficiency techniques in electric vehicles (A / C system, eco-assistant and smart management of auxiliary elements). This great European demonstrator is testing, among others things, technologies developed by Irizar in the area of assistance for efficient driving.

Power storage

SADE: Safe Storage Systems

This project has been co-financed by the Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda as part of the National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation.The project aims to research and develop a battery-pack solution designed for the urban mobility opportunity charging strategy. The development will have a working prototype, to be validated and tested on a laboratory scale.

Fast and intelligent vehicle charging infrastructure

ASSURED: Fast and intelligent vehicle charging infrastructure for large vehicles

The ASSURED project proposal addresses "The integration of electric commercial vehicles into the fast-charging infrastructure" of the Green Vehicle work programme. A consortium of 40 participants from 12 EU member countries will carry out the work.

The overarching objective of ASSURED is to analyse the needs of cities, operators and end users in order to derive the characteristics and requirements of the new generation of heavy-duty electric vehicles (like buses), medium-duty trucks and light vehicles to operate in urban areas.

In this way, we can obtain better cost improvements, develop the new generation of high voltage modular charging systems for electric vehicles and develop innovative charging management strategies.

Connectivity - Big Data

eFleet

Based on the notion that urban bus transportation electrification objectives cannot be achieved through current technology, the Irizar Group has put forward the eFLEET project to develop technologies and strategies for the creation of eMobility solutions (urban public transport based on 100% electric buses) that are modular flexible and scalable in order to make viable the mass deployment of medium / large electric bus fleets, thus minimizing the impact on the power grid and reducing initial and operational costs. eFLEET is an important strategic challenge as it seeks to unlock the limitations of a booming market in which the IRIZAR Group has been positioning itself since 2011.
