ADVANCED PRODUCTION: NEW SUCTION EQUIPMENT FOR TRENCHERS

The Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems Laboratory (LABSON UPC) and Nextrencher have worked together to develop new suction equipment for trenchers. One of the innovations incorporated into the new machine is a high-performance suction system to leave trenches completely free of waste (stones and earth). This reduces execution costs and improves the quality of the finish.

LABSON UPC collaborated in the project at various levels: in an analysis of the state-of-the-art of existing suction system technologies, in the proposal and validation of the best technical solution, in the conceptual design of the equipment, and in implementation and final verification after construction. Read more

 
 

TIC: My-TRAC: A PLATFORM TO OPTIMIZE AND PROMOTE PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The Data Management Group (DAMA UPC) is leading My-TRAC, a European project to create a cross-cutting platform for public transport users and operators. The platform will improve the experience of seamless transport: a concept of a journey in which users take different forms of transport that are connected in a continuous, integrated, efficient and intelligent way.
 
The project will focus on developing an application called Travel Companion for users, and a web-based interface for public transport operators. This interface will be used to gather information from the network and update existing data. Read more

PUBLICATION OF A REPORT ON THE SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACTS OF PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES AND THE PUBLIC RESEARCH SYSTEM IN CATALONIA 
 
The Catalan Association of Public Universities (ACUP) has published a report entitled Socioeconomic impacts of public universities and the public research system in Catalonia. Through the activity of the eight Catalan universities that were analysed, their associated bodies, and companies considered to have ties to the Catalan system of public universities, as well as the spending of students and visitors, a total revenue of 4.545 M€ (12.4 M€ day) was made in Catalonia in 2015.  Public Catalan universities contributed to the Catalan economy with 1.4% of GDP and generated almost 45,000 full-time jobs.

MODELLING OF TRANSPORT IN THE FIRST RING OF THE BARCELONA METROPOLITAN AREA

As part of the Virtual Mobility Lab (VML) project, inLab FIB UPC has generated the first in-depth multimodal model of Barcelona Metropolitan Area, which includes both the offering of all public transport modes, as well as private vehicles and the updated demand for mobility. The new model will support those who make decisions on mobility policies, transport operators and new companies that are developing mobility alternatives and wish to assess them. The VML is being undertaken in the framework of the CARNET initiative and in collaboration with SEAT and the PTV Group.
