ENRICO PISINO, HEAD OF INNOVATION FIAT CHRYSLER AUTOMOBILES AND PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL TECHNOLOGY CLUSTER "TRASPORTI ITALIA 2020"
Mr. Pisino, the National Technology Cluster "Trasporti Italia 2020" is a tool to promote the made in Italy in the transport sector. How was it born anh how is it working?
The National Technology Cluster "Trasporti Italia 2020" after two years by the constitution, with 72 members, is a system that is worth more than 33 billion in revenue, 182,000 employees and more than 6 billion investment in R&D. The main purpose of the Cluster, as desired by the Ministry of Education at the time of its constitution, is to act as an element of aggregation and animation team of the large industrial players and public research institutions in the country working in the sector of surface transport (road transport, rail, waterways and ITS/intermodality). Recently, the National Research Plan 2015-2020, formally recognized the Cluster as an intermediate soft-governance infrastructure of the public-private system of research and innovation in the transport sector. So from that final approval, the challenge of the coming years will be to significantly contribute to promote the competitiveness of Italian industry (made in Italy, in fact), directing policies to support industrial research and experimental development, stimulating capacity for innovation of enterprises, including small size ones, and with the support of the public research system, and increasing the cross cohesion ability of the three modal supply chains.
The Cluster has especially defined the route for research and innovation. What are the main themes? What are the technologies for the next future? How is the development of the connected vehicle going?
The Cluster has defined routes for the research and innovation shared and National level and on which the country should invest in the next years to keep high the competitiveness. These strategies have been published and have become an input also for the Transports Work Programme in Horizon 2020. The main European challengese we have to face are:
- New materials for sustainable products and processes with a view of the life cycle;
- Global security of transport and infrastructure;
- Management of the global mobility system to increase efficiency and effectiveness
- Reduction of Life Cycle Cost of collective transport systems.
To face these challenges the Cluster has identified some relevant R&I themes such as the further development of the connected and autonomous vehicle. The potential scenarios of development for the country are huge and strictly tied with the implementation of the ITS National Plan aknowledge in February 2014 and of public policies. Italian enterprises are undisputed leader in the telematics sector with around 7 millions of telematics box installed which make of Italy on eof the main European and worldwide market.
The industrial sector is already investing heavily in these technologies and it needs to identify possible areas of deployment. Some European countries, including Britain, Germany (Bavaria) and France have already moved. The Cluster is promoting in Italy the adoption of a National Plan for the Promotion of Automated Driving Technologies (ADT) and for the development of the platooning technology for commercial vehicles, through which to network all public and private entities involved in the development of the technologies installed on the vehicle, the V2X communication systems and infrastructure, including road markings and signs.
Is this work in line with the European objectives?
One of the priorities of the Transport Cluster is to increase the National access to European funds, maximizing synergies with the Structural Funds and promoting inter-regional projects. In this context, the Cluster works to foster the development of networks and international collaborations, integrating the regional or national 'long networks' (platforms, technological districts, Innovation clusters, consortia, etc.) with the European reference contexts: European Technology Platforms (ERRAC, ERTRAC, Waterborne), private and public initiatives in place or under construction (PPP, EIT …). In addition, the Cluster has already started contacts with other groupings both in Europe and worldwide (France, Austria, the Netherlands, China etc.). We know that the challenge Transport is a priority in Europe 2020, the goal: environmental, economic and social sustainability. The Transport White Paper has clearly identified the challenges and social functional target to be achieved. The national challenge that the Cluster has gathered is to integrate the needs of the sectors, identifying growth trajectories, on which aggregate appropriate levels of human and financial resources to Italy's measure, that is, to free the existing growth potential, to be protagonists in Europe and in the world.
Finally, let's talk about FCA and innovation. After the agreement with Google, it looks like other partnerships with important digital economy player are about to come. How will the car be in 10 years?
The challenges that the mobility of a future not too far away requires us are extremely ambitious, and require a capacity for integrated action with the territory rather complex. We can say that the car must first be the bearer of a sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility: the evolutionary effort of traction and feeding systems as well as the search of high efficiency levels will guarantee more and more reduced CO2 emissions with obvious benefits for the environment and for users, who will also appreciate the low fuel consumption and associated operating costs.
But the great expectation for mobility won't stop certainly to this pillar - albeit important. The vehicle of the future will have to ensure the availability on board of a large range of services to users, which transform it into extension of your domestic life, work and leisure. Let's think to all the features that only a highly specialized connectivity and above all fully integrated with road and urban infrastructure can guarantee: in particular, access to mobility services of various kinds, especially those designed to make more pleasant and efficient time spent to the guide.
In addition, in the future the car will not only guarantee us services, efficiency, and entertainment available on board: should also do everything by offering assistance and support to allow the driver to enjoy them in complete safety.

AlmavivA is currently Italy's leading provider of ICT services applied to the Transportation and Logistics sector.
Building on our exclusive rail engineering know how, over the years we have rolled out a comprehensive range of solutions and services for Local Public Transport and Logistics, developing and managing enterprise mission critical solutions for freight & passenger mobility.
One of the most significant projects is the transition to Cloud Computing of the technology systems and platforms of Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group, managed by AlmavivA under full outsourcing arrangements: an innovative development, which has produced benefits in terms of both performance and operating costs, without any impact on the continuity of operations.
Our market segments and target customers are passenger and freight transport operators, infrastructure managers, port authorities, local authorities engaged in developing and managing local integrated passenger mobility systems and services and, last but not least, "last mile" logistics providers.
THE TRENDING PRODUCT
Passenger Information System
Over the years, AlmavivA has strived to transform simple transport into a great travel experience, providing real-time information.
To achieve this aim, we have developed a turnkey system called the Passenger Information System (PIS), capable of offering users ground and on-board information in real time.
The PIS is based on the two-way exchange of information between the ground and on-board systems, capable of covering the full technological supply chain of customer information services, infotainment, remote diagnostics and safety: on-board equipment, remote control software platforms and driving services, assistance and content management.
The AlmavivA System enables customers to control and manage their fleet through a single fully-integrated solution, which enables the remote management of all on-board contents, in real time and from the ground, providing passengers with quick information at lower costs, while collecting important vehicle diagnostic data.
Our offering can cover all on-board services, from audio/video information systems to safety (such as CCTVs), from passenger counting systems to infotainment and remote diagnostics. Each system is independent and can be easily integrated with the existing ones, which means that AlmavivA can provide either a complete solution or a part of it.
The Passenger Information System developed by AlmavivA can be installed and operate on almost the entire fleet of all the major rail operators (Trenitalia, Trenord, Tper, etc.), and is provided to the principal rail vehicle manufacturers. Initially designed and developed for the rail sector, it can easily be exported to underground railways and road vehicles.
THREE QUESTIONS TO ALMAVIVA
Smeraldo Fiorentini, General Manager, Transportation Division
- AlmavivA's Transportation Division is Italy's number one ICT provider for the Transport industry, starting as an outsourcer for Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group. Are the proposed solutions of interest only for the railway market?
Our offering comes from a longstanding consolidated experience as outsourcer for Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group, on behalf of which AlmavivA develops and manages the entire IT value chain, ensuring quality and service lives consistent with the best market practices. Every day we control and monitor no less than 11,000 trains over a network of 17,000 km.
Building on this experience, we have developed end2end solutions for the local public transport sector and for managing port systems too.
Our approach is inspired by the smart cities concept: integrated platforms that guarantee the interoperability of the systems and multimodal travel, offering a broad array of cutting-edge serves tailored to the real present and future needs of our clients.
- In Italy, the ICT world for the Transportation industry is very fragmented. What sort of role does AlmavivA intend to play in this context?
Recent trends have got us thinking: the larger national and international providers are out of breath and slowing down, some have even withdrawn from a market that has been dubbed, perhaps too hurriedly, as hardly profitable. We have witnessed the mushrooming of huge numbers of aggressive start-ups in the sector, most of which target the end users, i.e. passengers, with little or no attention to the B2B segment. In parallel, the success of the Internet of Things and the forecasts by connectivity providers, which have foreseen an exponential growth of M2M systems over the next two decades, are paving the way for a new era in the development of added value services for specialist operators.
At the same time, we are experiencing difficulties in developing a global vision and programming is enormously delayed in all sectors of the country. The lack of an overall strategic plan is penalizing companies like AlmavivA, which develop competences on the local market, in order to create products of excellence for exporting abroad. Our history, figures, experience, value proposition all ensure that we are the only potential system integrator in this country capable of competing on the international markers with the principal players.
- Which measures and strategic approach are you deploying to tackle the present situation? What strategies do you have for the forthcoming years?
Regarding the macroeconomic environment that has been slowing down the global economy in recent years, we believe that, thanks to the strategies we have put into place at AlmavivA, not only have we consolidated our position in the Transportation market, we have also significantly increased the profitability of our services. AlmavivA has tackled this situation by focusing on quality and investing in innovation and training our human resources. We believe that by acting on these levers, we can further capitalize on the efforts made in the past, in view of future challenges.
The use of state-of-the-art technology, the focus on quality in all our services and products, the endeavor to anticipate market trends are the cornerstones of any fast-moving and forward-looking business, whose hallmark is innovation.
Internationalization is the most important challenge we will be tackling in the coming years, to achieve which we are engaged in drawing up an important development plan based on three pillars: sustainable development (energy, the environment, safety and mobility), the information and communication society (connectivity, cloud, Internet Of Things), promoting a person-centered approach (improving the quality of living, customer experience).

Rome: an extra-ordinary plan for road safety
"Roma will set up a Special Programme for Road Safety. We are identifying measures, actions and initiatives designed to make critical intersections safe, strengthening not only controls but also the system of government and management of road safety and build a culture on this issue. And shortly the work of the Citizens Group for the Road Safety will start as well with a key role in the implementation and management of the Special Programme." This is what Linda Meleo, the Councillor for Transport and Mobility of Rome has recently stated during the award of the project "Keep Calm and Slow Down" launched by Roma Servizi Mobility, the Agency for the Mobility of Rome, TTS Italia ordinary member. The councilor has awarded the winners of the contest that involved several schools in the capital on the issue of road safety. "The capital, with over 13 thousand accidents with victims, 17 thousand wounded and 173 deaths in 2015 (12% more than the previous year) reached a rate of 6.0 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants. Based on the parameters provided by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport the social cost of road accidents in Rome is more than one billion euro every year."
"The goal is to be able to say: no one will be killed or seriously injured as a result of a car accident. In line with the policies of the most virtuous countries, the program will adopt the approach 'Vision Zero' to avoid the serious accidents."

Viasat and Teamind Solution together for an "easier" transport world
Viasat (leader company in Europe for the Satellite Security Systems), TTS Italia ordinary member, and Teamind Solution (System integrator specialised in smart technological solutions for the logistics mobility world) established a strategic partnership to join the forces and apply on market with innovative applications and integrated satellite telematics services, able to simplify and optimize the corporate activities for trucking and logistics. At the same time, the purpose is to approach, in a wide range, the up-market of the Transports and Logistics Operators offering complete solutions and reliable integrated services, with also an extremely satisfactory quality-price index.
To open this combined path, Viasat and Teamind Solution have launched a full optional suite (managerial, satellite, tachograph and terminals used on board) to remotely unload the data of the tachographs and their management in accordance with the rules (REG. CE 561/2006). As we know, every over 35 deadweight tons transportations must have a tachograph on board to memorise the driver's activities. In the latest years, road and company controls have increased to verify the correct compliance of the rules regulating driving hours, break times, rest periods and the proper use of the tachograph. Needless to say that a mistake, however understandable it could be in comparison to a complexity of this kind, could have dramatic costs.
"We want to simplify how transport companies manage their vehicles and their operators moving across the territory" explains Alessandro Peron, Teamind Solution Managing Director. "We have deeply wanted this partnership with Viasat, among the global top players for satellite telematics, to launch an evolved solution for the tachograph that could completely differentiate from what nowadays is offered on market, by ensuring the smart automation of the operative activities of transport, minimising the waste of resources, money and time".
Actually, the proposed suite by Viasat and Teamind Solution covers every driver's need, protecting him from expensive informatics investments to preserve the data, in automatic mode and by law, coming from the fleet, to manage the directory of vehicles and drivers to monitor the correct frequency of data collection of the fleet, to produce and print by default letters of notification and/or complaint (compulsory under the law) and many more. In other words, a solution that can outsource some activities with the direct advantage for the transport company to recover time and resources to devote to greater added value activities.
Besides the in-vehicle devices (satellite, tachograph, terminal on board), it shall provide a software application to analyse the downloaded data and to verify any infringement, showing motivations for each one, using a clear and simple language, and the correct behave that the driver should have maintained to avoid them (useful also to comply with the training and disclosure requirements of the drivers, by Law CE 561/2006).
"We want to aggregate the best excellences around our model for international growth and the collaboration with Teamind Solution is along these lines" concludes Mr. Domenico Petrone, Viasat Group Founder and President. "We are really counting on this partnership to develop and implement innovative projects, highly performing on this market in Italy and abroad".

New consumer behaviour - new business opportunities. SocialCar in the sharing economy - SocialCar midterm event - 22 November 2016 - Brussels (Regione Lazio - Logo Room - 8th floor - Rond Point Schuman, 14)
The sharing economy has rapidly gained in importance over the last few years, affecting traditional market sectors including mobility and logistics, retail and consumer merchandise, tourism and leisure.
Collaborative consumption, rethinking the value of ownership, consumers becoming service providers are factors which herald in a paradigm shift in global consumer behaviour.
Recent business pairings such as KLM and Airbnb, Toyota and Uber, Volswagen and Gett, GM and Lyft reveal the readiness of big corporations to embrace the change.
But is the European small business ready yet? Europe is still missing an adequate regulatory framework, and the small business sector keeps a safety distance.
SocialCar, a European research project funded by Horizon 2020, pursues the mission to kick-start business models in the passengers' mobility sector capitalising on the sharing economy. The project develops a user-oriented platform for planning, booking and integrated payment combining carpooling and other on-demand services with regular collective transport, in an effort to mainstream the concept of a public-private co-modal urban transport. Business analysts devise concepts for viable and bankable service models which can ripple out across Europe.
Can this become a role model for other sectors as well?
SocialCar is about sharing and collaborative development. Software engineers, business analysts, transport experts, carpooling providers and public authorities from Italy, Greece, United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Poland, Switzerland, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Croatia, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Hungary, Spain and Belgium are collaboratively inventing a unique solution made in Europe. TTS Italia is one of the project partners.
The SocialCar community is growing, and now it's time for you to have a say. We look forward to meeting you in Brussels!
