e-Shock takes part in the co-creation of the Living Lab for Smart City solutions at the JRC Research site in Ispra (Varese), a structure with over 400 buildings, 36 kilometers of internal roads and 2,000 staff; a real city-like testing environment. Their participation was granted through an application to the JRC call for expressions of interest to co-create living labs in two of its research sites: Ispra, in Italy, and Petten, in the Netherlands, for Smart City solutions.

 

The e-Shock products portfolio consists of smart sensors and control units that intelligently manage and control the vehicle dynamics in every condition; the Dynamic Cortex, a set of mechatronics and software solutions that acts with smart actuators of vehicles providing robotization and enabling the integration with autonomous driving applications; Rob.Y digital chassis, based on Dynamic Cortex, is the most complete robotic platform for vehicles designed for professional services and advanced mobility solutions.

 

E-Shock has started running the first tests within the Living Lab for Future Mobility Solutions of the European Commission Joint Research Center (JRC) in Ispra (Varese), aimed at calibrating Rob.Y vehicle dynamics control systems during manoeuvres like traction, braking and stability, on different road surfaces. In the coming months, e-Shock will develop vehicle dynamics control systems and will test the self-driving system in rural and urban test-tracks of the JRC. E-Shock and JRC will jointly organize a demonstration event with the involvement of By engaging citizens in the experimentation of this innovative technology, user needs, concerns and expectations can be brought to the surface and used to inform future EU policies in the mobility field.

 

As the last stage of the experimentation, e-Shock plans the activation of a mobility service for people on campus, which will enable to test users’ adoption and behaviour in real usage situations. Eventually, the JRC Living Lab aims to become a citizen-centred policy design tool for innovative EU policies related to smart cities, in line with the JRC mission of providing independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
