France’s difference when it comes to Intelligent Transportation Systems

Aurore Bernard - 12-juin-2014 10:44:18
The trend, across cities around the world, is for ever-higher densities in urban population. Benoît Perino, UBIFRANCE’s expert on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs), says that, once a city reaches a critical size (i.e. a population density of up to 20,000 people per square kilometre), urban mobility becomes a paramount issue. Public-sector authorities need to solve such issues as to how to manage road traffic flows, give commuters up-to-the-minute information, and run efficient back-office payment systems to make these essential services financially viable.  High tech makes a difference, and France has been a precursor in ITS technology for over 40 years now, designing and building ‘the future is now’ solutions. The ITS market in France is worth €4.5 billion overall, generating 45,000 jobs. Naturally, Paris is the premier showcase, although every major French city displays impressive achievements in urban transportation. In Paris, the métro is being automated and ‘traditional’ tickets are on their way out, being replaced by dematerialized Near Field Electronic paid-entry systems such as Navigo that whisk passengers through the turnstiles. Navigo will soon to be deployed across Thalys services — the bullet train serving the high-speed line between Paris and Brussels. One of the key players behind these ultra-efficient, yet complex, ticketing solutions is ERG Transit Systems SA — a specialist company capable of designing ITS ticketing systems for target groups of users ranging from 10,000 to 10 million passengers a day, in cities such as Hong Kong, Melbourne, Rome, Singapore, and maybe San Francisco soon. Managing environmental impact and highway safety is a prime concern, and French technology has met another ITS challenge on its highways (the country’s autoroutes), providing traffic reports and free-flow tollbooth collection (or ETC, for Electronic Tolling Collection). This complex mix of infrastructure and back-office consolidation of on-line toll collection works now in the United States, while respecting each individual state’s strenuous and complicated guidelines for toll-collection management, yet still designing a reliable, interoperable system that makes financial sense. Systems have also been designed to identify licence plates on trucks in order to apply the eco-tax, as the vehicles pass under electronic sensory equipment. Obviously, a variant of this multi-mode system is equipment that checks for vehicles exceeding the speed limit, combined with the processing of massive volumes of data in order to properly assess fines. French players have developed solutions that are environmentally and user friendly. Autolib, introduced by Blue Solutions, Bolloré SA’s subsidiary, has put up to 1,800 electric cars on the streets of Paris and its region (with 59 suburbs of the French capital included in the scheme) – an environmentally friendly initiative soon to be launched in Indianapolis (USA), where the scheme will be known as Speedy Car. Any visitor to Paris has seen, or perhaps even used, Vélib’ bikes to get around. The Vélib’ scheme, launched and managed by JC Decaux SA in 2007, maintains a fleet of 17,000 bicycles used by an average of 85,810 riders every day and extends to over 30 suburbs. The running of the Vélib’ scheme requires real-time back-office management software and a convenient, yet secure payment system — always the prime ingredients for a successful ITS. What about the role of UBIFRANCE, France’s export-support agency? UBIFRANCE interacts with the key players in the sector, such ATEC ITS France ( www.atec-itsfrance.net ), a professional association that brings all the ITS industry together in order to shape the public debate and lobby in favour of future land-based transportation projects. Another important player is TOPOS, an association that is particularly active in the south-west of France ( www.topos-aquitaine.org ) and has a special interest in developing geo-localization in the transportation field. In fact, a highlight with an international dimension for the entire sector will be the World Congress for ITS in Bordeaux (in south-western France), to be held from 5 to 9 October 2014. As Benoît Perino of UBIFRANCE sees it, “There is a high potential for ITS in France and internationally. There are a lot of French SMEs with great, highly advanced technologies. Our role at UBIFRANCE is to accompany them, so that they can meet local operators and authorities throughout the world and have their technology integrated into turnkey projects.”  

Atelier Steaven Richard forges a name for itself at French Design Forum

Coline BORDET - 13-févr.-2014 15:37:50
Atelier Steaven Richard specializes in upmarket metalwork for use in interior decoration: the company will display its creative work at the French Design Forum, organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK, on 6 March 2014, in central London. In its artistic working of metals, Atelier Steaven Richard’s workshop allies traditional French savoir-faire with innovative contemporary designs.   Situated in the very heart of Paris, Atelier Steaven Richard is active both in France and internationally. The company has been awarded the Living Heritage Company label and is a member of Grands Ateliers de France, a network of excellence covering over 80 traditional trades across the country. Atelier Steaven Richard counts some great names of architecture and interior decoration among its supporters, such as Jacques Garcia, Pierre Yovanovitch and Jean Nouvel.   Atelier Steaven Richard’s creations are custom-made and respond to the requirements and tastes of the world of luxury design. The company has invested a great deal in its research centre and favours experimentation with varied materials and shapes, when working side by side with decorators on their creations.   The French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK organises the French Design Forum in central London, on 6 March 2014. During the event, to be held at Chandos House, Steaven Richard, owner and founder of Atelier Steaven Richard, will present his workshop’s latest innovation: flooring — in the style of a parquet floor — made of textured metal, which is available in nickel silver, bronze, or stainless steel. This product was first perfected to respond to a request by Parisian fashion house Chanel to cover its creator’s studio floor with a Versailles parquet floor — made of metal.   This project has yielded positive outcomes for the company: Atelier Steaven Richard is now able to offer an entirely customisable metallic parquet floor, with a multiplicity of design options with regard to textures and shapes.   Following the introduction of the textured-metal parquet, Atelier Steaven Richard is now looking to expand upon its expertise in order to develop new manufacturing processes — an approach that is supported by the Ile de France Innovation Centre, the centre for innovation for Paris and its region.   Thanks to the company’s approach, which has always been open to a combination of innovative technology and creative design, Atelier Steaven Richard has perfected a technique that enables all metals to be textured with unique and diverse motifs. With Atelier Steaven Richard, designers are free to let their imagination roam, invent daring textures, and apply innovative techniques such as inlaying metal in wood panels.   Alongside this creative drive, Atelier Steaven Richard has been keen to maintain its expertise in the specialist company’s original craft, i.e. classic wrought-iron work.  The team in the workshop comprises highly skilled artists and continues to create wrought-iron pieces following the strict design rules of the art form.   About Atelier Steaven Richard   Steaven Richard’s Paris workshop opened in 2001 and, for over 10 years, has been offering high-quality services in artistic metalworking. The company works with a variety of materials including brass, chrome, steel and wrought iron in order to create, for example, pieces of furniture and interior decorative objects.   During a 10-year tour of Europe, Steaven Richard, founder and owner of Atelier Steaven Richard, familiarized himself with the different facets of forge work and wrought-iron work. Following a series of meetings within contemporary-art circles that revolutionized his approach to the craft, Steaven Richard then set out to launch himself into the artistic working of metals, placing his traditional expertise at the service of contemporary creativity.   Atelier Steaven Richard has been awarded the Living Heritage Company label. The Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV, or Living Heritage Company) label is a mark of recognition given by the French government, which has put this scheme in place in order to reward French companies in the arts and crafts for the excellence of their traditional and industrial skills.   Atelier Steaven Richard will participate in the French Design Forum 2014, on 6 March of this year. The event, which is organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK, will take place at Chandos House, in central London.   Journalists and members of the trade are welcome to attend the event at a time that suits them, on the day, any time between 10.00am and 8.00pm. To register, they should get in touch with Ms Agathe Barbier, commercial officer in charge of the event at the French Trade Commission in London (see email address below), or with the press office.    To register your interest in this event, please RSVP to: agathe.barbier@ubifrance.fr   For further information about EPV, please go to: http://www.patrimoine-vivant.com/en/   For further information about Atelier Steaven Richard, please go to: www.steavenrichard.fr     For further information, please contact :    Quote ref. : FTPB3898 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 kate.riley@ubifrance.fr View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/  

Parentsaround.com to showcase parental-control solution at MWC 2014

Coline BORDET - 05-févr.-2014 15:40:00
Parentsaround.com will be showcasing its smart and intuitive multi-device parental-control solution at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show, which will take place from 24 to 27 February 2014 in Barcelona (Spain). This unparalleled filtering-software solution is designed to address the growing need to fight against internet addiction and protect young people from inappropriate content.   Parentsaround.com’s aim, in creating its parental-control solution, was to provide families with a practical and educational tool. This solution, which combines intuitiveness, efficiency and high added value, has already been recognized as a forerunner in the field of parental control. The company’s technology is a genuine breakthrough with regard to parental-control devices on the market. It has placed Parentsaround.com in a strategic position, to the extent that it has recently become an official partner of the Safer Internet Day 2014 and of the French national scheme known as Internet Sans Crainte (or Safer Internet Program).   Parentsaround.com stands out due to its ability to protect all types of devices, irrespective of the network used (with Wi-Fi connection, in particular). This amounts to an important technical innovation, which is in tune with public expectations as well as those of mobile-telecommunications operators seeking to provide an advanced parental-control service to their customers.   Parentsaround.com identified this market need and has become a specialist in the integration of its technology with mobile-telecoms operators. In fact, it is the first provider to equip a major French mobile-telephone operator with a white label 2.0 parental-control application for smartphones and tablets.   This centralized system is designed to safely guide children through the digital world by focusing on two main objectives: avoiding inappropriate content (patented internet-filtering technology, management of content and applications on smartphones and tablets, etc.), on the one hand, and tackling addiction (usage-time management), on the other.   The software developed by Parentsaround.com can be downloaded and installed in a few clicks onto smartphones, tablets and computers. It can then be accessed via an application portal or via a secure management console on the Parentsaround.com website. All operations are centralized from a device connected to the internet, which allows the parents of the under-age users to manage several profiles.   Parentsaround.com is very easy to use with its pre-defined and customizable access schedules, easily accessible statistics with regard to children’s internet use, and its time- and content-management platform.   Parentsaround.com places the child at the heart of the protection process and applies a tailored and unique safety profile for each child, irrespective of the medium used, the connection location, and the type of network. This feature has two benefits: firstly, users are able to calculate the time spent on each device and, secondly, it provides a unified internet filter.   Parentsaround.com features a patented innovative internet-filtering technology (Rapid Host Validation). The analysis (text and images) and site-categorisation motor offers filtering rates that far exceed the standards recommended and achieved by rival software products on the market.   The focal point of Parentsaround.com has always been the quality of its product and, as such, it places great emphasis on the innovation and added value of the services provided. Accordingly, the R&D division is a crucial part of the company. Parentsaround.com has been geared towards multi-devices from the onset. As a result, its integrated solution was tested on more than 10,000 families and guarantees protection under all networks, therefore meeting the expectations of mobile-telecoms operators.   The company has expanded into the iOS market, thereby offering an array of solutions to control the use of iPhones, iPads and iPods: control of applications by age group (including Safari), filtering of inappropriate content, limitation of online purchases and other installations, and limitation of use with a corresponding schedule.   Parentsaround.com focuses on B2B marketing by providing its solution — based on a set-up fee and income-share scheme — to mobile-telecoms operators seeking to offer this service to their customers. Thanks to this economic model, the company satisfies the need of mobile-telecoms operators to increase their service portfolio by providing them with a high-added-value product.   The general-public solution takes the form of a subscription on the www.parentsaround.com website. A single licence allows users to equip all the devices used by family members. This package costs €2.99 per month (i.e. less than £2.50).   Nowadays, more and more schools are using digital school bags in the form of tablets. Parentsaround.com offers a solution that is suited to this use through software that helps to manage application content, create usage schedules, and apply an internet filter. This solution can also be used to automatically allocate different user profiles to students, both inside and outside the institution concerned.   About Ars Nova Systems   Ars Nova Systems is a French company based in Nantes (Western France) that specializes in IT security and the analysis of multi-media content. The company has developed Parentsaround.com, a multi-device parental-control solution that can be managed remotely via the internet. It has been designed to enable parents to filter the internet content that is available to their children and monitor the time they spend online, in order to fight against internet addiction.   Ars Nova Systems will be showcasing its Parentsaround.com solution at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show, which will take place from 24 to 27 February 2014 in Barcelona (Spain). MWC is one of the world’s leading events for mobile telecommunications, services and content.

DECOVISION® decorative cables bring colour and design to home cabling

Joanna Routaboul - 18-févr.-2013 18:49:51
DECOVISION® has brought a novel range of decorative cables for household appliances to the UK. Items in the home, such as lamps, coffee machines and shower hoses, can now have a touch of colour thanks to the company’s cables that come in a large variety of patterns, from camouflage and chrome to glitter and granite. DECOVISION® is a subsidiary of cable specialist OMERIN Group.   French-based DECOVISION® has launched a range of decorative cables for electrical items in the UK. Previously, plain, unattractive electrical cables have been carefully hidden in the home, whereas today both mains cables and electric leads can be displayed as decorative objects thanks to DECOVISION® and the French touch that the company brings to functional wiring.   Conceived, designed and manufactured in France by DECOVISION®, a subsidiary of cable specialist OMERIN Group, this cable decoration process is the only one of its kind worldwide.   The company’s cables are available in a wide range of colours: from the more classic, such as gold and chrome, to the modern, which includes denim, animal-print, camouflage, glitter and floral patterns.   In the range suitable for ceiling lights, bedside lamps and other light fittings, DECOVISION® provides more than 30 designs. This collection has a variety of product options, including a regular cable, and a lead with a patterned standard switch for a bedside lamp, or patterned foot switch for a floor lamp.   Additionally, the company produces electrical cable in 10-metre reels, ideal for ceiling fittings. These reels are available in 20 designs, such as tartan, pink marble, fluorescent and patchwork.   Together with the cables dedicated to light fittings, DECOVISION® also offers patterned mains leads to customise other electrical items around the home, from toasters and coffee makers to video-game consoles and amplifiers.   The unique decorative process has also been applied to shower hoses, to create DECOVISION®’s Showerflex range. This range is available in 17 different designs, including pine, floral, vintage and fluorescent, in order to integrate the shower hose into any bathroom-design scheme.   Thanks to a sophisticated manufacturing process, DECOVISION®’s designs are indelible, resisting both water and extreme temperatures. The ready-to-use cables produced by the company are of a high technical standard and comply with all safety standards.   The customer can visit www.decovision-omerin.com in order to choose a decorative-cable design and select the product suited to his (or her) needs. The ready-to-use decorative cable is then delivered within a week. In order to install a DECOVISION® cable, all that is needed is a standard screwdriver and a few minutes to replace the old lead, paying attention to wire colour coding.   DECOVISION® also offers a professional range of decorative cables aimed at distributors and manufacturers.   Although the prices for decorative cables and mains leads may vary — depending on the design or model chosen — a 3-metre decorative cable is available from €10 and a shower hose from €24.   About DECOVISION®   DECOVISION®, a specialist in decorative electrical cables, is part of OMERIN Group. As a result of many years of R&D, DECOVISION®’s cable decoration process is unique. The company has applied for a patent in this respect.   For 50 years, OMERIN Group has been producing electrical cables for use in extreme conditions, ranging from -190°C to +1,400°C. OMERIN Group is the world’s leading manufacturer of silicone-insulated cables.   For DECOVISION®’s Pinterest account, please go to: http://pinterest.com/decovision/   For further information about Showerflex or to place an order, please go to www.flexible-douche.com   For further information about DECOVISION®, please go to: www.decovision-omerin.com   For further information, please contact :     Ms Katherine WOODS - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London SW1Y 4SP – UK Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 katherine.woods@ubifrance.fr   View other press releases at : www.ubifrance.com/uk
