The Piaggio Porter Overland in Russia
Technology VisLab protagonist of a conference on intelligent transport systems

Vehicles to autonomous driving of VisLab , today and tomorrow is St. Petersburg at the conference center of the Russian city, which speaks of intelligent transport systems and the unique experience of the laboratory of the University parmigiana who last summer completed a only company in the world: a crossing of Asia , from Parma to Shanghai, with vehicles without drivers , and guided by an innovative technology-based cameras and lasers. Following the presentation, the presence of the governor of St. Petersburg and senior officers of the Russian Federation and the European Community, the vehicles are giving proof of their autonomous capacities along a path of 4 km around the convention center. The technology VisLab, installed on 4 Porter Piaggio who took part in the mission together in Overland, is able to locate obstacles on the path, pedestrians, other vehicles, and give commands to the vehicle in such a way that this moves in total safety. These systems not only will make driving safer by reducing the number of accidents in the future, but can be applied to other fields in which the automatic driving is not hampered by the lack of regulation: the fact VisLab is also preparing tractors and utility vehicles can of movimentarsi alone on the field to perform agricultural work without human supervision.



Arrived in Kiev for the Piaggio Porter Overland 13
Monday, 09.08.2010 - Kiev - The four Piaggio Porter Electric Power of Overland 13, equipped with an artificial vision system capable of guaranteeing driving without a pilot, arrived in the city of Kiev . The Ukrainian capital was achieved in only 14 days, less than two weeks after departure from Rome last July 22, in fact, the Piaggio Porter electric propulsion have already covered more than 3,500 of the 13,000 kilometers that will take them through Europe and Asia, to the International Exposition in Shanghai with the theme "Better City, Better Life". The arrival in Shanghai the small "fleet" of vehicles with zero environmental impact, led by state-control systems, scheduled for October 26, symbolizes the contribution of the Italian research centers and the national industry of two and four wheels can make to the design of an eco-friendly mobility and increasingly sophisticated.
initiative, the first of its kind in the world, is a collaboration between Piaggio, University of Parma and VisLab (Artificial Vision and Intelligent Systems Laboratory), a spin-off of 'University of Parma, who works in the field of artificial vision and intelligent systems for automotive applications, while Overland - famous for his expeditions to every corner of the globe - is responsible for logistics of the trip.
Four Porter Electric Power are driven by electric motors Serial, able to guarantee a maximum speed of 55 kilometers per hour and a range of 110 km with a refill. The vehicles supplied by Piaggio have been integrated with technology VisLab / University of Parma: systems of perception, decision and control - to guarantee safe driving without driver - powered by solar panels on the roof of the vehicles themselves and continually interfaced with other vehicles shipment.
Manufactured and sold from 1994 Piaggio Porter Electric Power vehicle for the transport of goods and people, has often been deeply renewed - even recently - from the point of view of technical and performance. In the field of electric vehicles for fleets, the Porter Electric - half suited to the provision of urban services and the transport of goods with zero emissions in city centers, thanks to the considerable autonomy - has an excellent spread in Italy and all ' abroad: is the "four-wheel" electric most popular in Europe, with over 5,000 copies in circulation. The only city of Reggio Emilia will use 450, while the Municipality of Barcelona has recently purchased more than 100 copies.
Porter Electric Power is used in numerous fleets of private companies and public institutions in Italy and Europe, thanks to its peculiarities' techniques: compact, easy to handle, with great load capacity and totally free of emissions. (12:00)




Still to this day, I have never found a more versatile vehicle than a Hijet.

There's a new custom made accessory for the Jet in the pipeline. The good thing with the new one is the lack of rot, I get to spend less time welding and more time making stuff Smile
