    The Transport Research Awards offer accolades for young and senior researchers across 5 categories, plus an honorary award

    TRA 2024 (Transport Research Arena) will take place in Dublin, Ireland from the 15th – 18th of April and is the foremost European transport event covering all transport modes and aspects of mobility. The winners of two the two TRA Visions competitions will be announced at the 2024 event, along with an honorary awardee. The registrations are divided as follows:

    The TRA VISIONS 2024 young researcher competition: A young researcher competition seeking to stimulate interest among young researchers and students in sustainable transport. The registration period will be open until 30/06/2023.

    The TRA VISIONS 2024 senior researcher competition: A competition for senior researchers in the field of innovative transport concepts based on results only from EU-funded projects. The deadline for entry is 14th September 2023 23:59 CEST.

    In addition to the above, a “special honorary award” will honoring a “very” senior researcher who is about to complete or has already completed their career, and who has through the years made an outstanding and well-recognized contribution to transport-related research and innovation in their respective field.

    The organization explains,

    “Both competitions cover all transport modes (road, rail, waterborne, airborne and cross modality) in line with the EC policy objectives for smart, green and integrated transport. The S&T objectives are to nurture the best transport researchers in Europe, promote the alignment of their interests with those of transport stakeholders, encourage them to participate in the conference and celebrate their achievements. The process is two-way: students are inspired by the presentations at the main conference and mature researchers are inspired by the research and vision of the young.”

    The competitions are divided into five categories, each per transport mode, with participants being able to choose which of the ways they will submit their project:

    Road, Rail, Waterborne, Airborne, Cross-Modality

    Interested parties are invited to join a series of half-hour webinars which will detail the application process, timeline, and prize:

  2. THOR AVAS to take part in the international exhibition of Micromobility

    Comments Off on THOR AVAS to take part in the international exhibition of Micromobility

    Micromobility Europe is returning to Amsterdam on June 8-9 for a two-day overview of the micro electric transport market and presenting solutions to revolutionize future cities.

    THOR AVAS will harmoniously join this electric vibe with the participation of the world’s leading manufacturers, people involved in innovation, and leaders in the field of micromobility. THOR will present its AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System) project for LEVs with an electric scooter as a sample.

    This sound branding & safety solution for EVs is based on the patented principle of sound transmission – both recorded from real engines of cool supercars, and artificially created by our team of acoustic and sound designers. Silent scooters often lead to accidents, and a harmonious sound will help all road users to notice the approach of a high-speed e-vehicle in advance.

    Guests will be able to come to booth #610 near the registration desk and talk with company representatives, listen to the Thor AVAS sound on an e-scooter, and also ride it at the test track.

    The capital of narrow streets and canals, bicycles, fields of tulips and cheese factories, creative freedom and opportunities will host more than 100 speakers from all over the world, 500+ brands, and more than 1500 guests under one roof of the large De Kromhouthal exhibition center. An unforgettable atmosphere and constant movement are the core values that attract visitors to Micromobility Europe, the world’s fastest-growing mobile conference, which will be held in the capital of the Netherlands. The participants will enjoy a rich program of speakers and fruitful networking, communication with industry founders, journalists, investors, observers, technologists, politicians, and startups from more than 500 cities.

    During the exhibition, all exhibitors and guests will have a unique opportunity to ride the most innovative electric scooters, bicycles, boards and buggies.

    Webinars will cover the key issues that are redefining urban mobility: the energy crisis, profitability of scooters, post-coronavirus street space, e-bike boom, last-mile delivery, WFH trends, MaaS systems, supply chain disruptions, 15-minute cities, fast trading, road safety, urban sustainability and more.

    Venue: Kromhouthal, Gedempt Hamerkanaal 231, 1021 KP Amsterdam, Netherlands

    About THOR (Car Systems LLC):

    The THOR manufacturing company was founded in 2017 and the first successful project was a revolutionary electronic exhaust system for petrol and diesel vehicles. The THOR team of engineers and acoustics is engaged in the development of software and hardware, the design of acoustic elements, and has patents for technologies in the field of recording and reproducing the sounds of real supercar engines. THOR sound engineers have created the largest library of sounds that is transmitted through an electronic module to the speaker, controlled through the application, synchronizing with every cycle of movement of any type of vehicle. Since 2020, the Thor AVAS project has been launched – encompassing the sound accompaniment of electric vehicles, based on the patented principle of reproducing sound samples and operating within the framework of the established UNECE regulation on noise and sound No. 138.
