In August 2018, bikers from all over the world started joining the world wide campaign “We, The Riders“ launched by one of Logos’ oldest clients – the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM). The campaign, launched at the Austrian round of MotoGP, is a new initiative by responsible motorcyclists who share the joy of riding motorcycles and are adamant about the need for safer roads.
On 10 October 2018 the campaign was officially launched in Brussels. At FIM‘s Annual Policy Debate ‘Riders & Drivers: Fighting Invisibility Together’, organised with the support of the Logos Public Affairs team, policy makers, industry representatives and members of the motorcycling community were presented with FIM’s vision for roads built and planned with all users in mind. The event was co-hosted by MEP Wim van de Camp, EPP Coordinator of TRAN Committee and MEP Karima Delli, TRAN Committee Chair.
The focus of the “We The Riders” campaign is “visibility” – i.e. the need for riders not only to be seen in traffic but also to be borne in mind by decision makers as motorcyclists are often overlooked. The FIM stands by the riders who take their responsibility and, together, we are all demanding that everyone else takes theirs. Partners of the campaign include Dorna, the Red Bull Ring circuit, ACEM, and many MotoGP stars.
The campaign was also endorsed by the European Commissioner for Transport Mrs Violeta Bulc and Mr Jean Todt, President of the FIA and UN Special Ambassador for Road Safety. This campaign is a contribution by the FIM to the United Nations Decade of Action.
MCI Benelux and Logos are pleased to announce that the European Commission’s H2020 programme had agreed to financially support SHERLOCK. It seeks to develop new applications for human robot collaboration in the production of elevators, industrial modules, aeronautics and machine tools. The project, which will run for a period of 3 years, gather among others Comau Spa (Italy), VDL Industrial Modules (Netherlands), United Technologies Research Centre (Ireland), Intrasoft International SA (Luxembourg) and Fraunhofer Gesellschaft Zur Foerderung (Germany).
Human robot collaboration now addresses the need for flexible production, but some limitations remain. It does not cover all applications and it is still very complex. SHERLOCK aims to introduce the latest safe robotic technologies in production environments, enhancing them with smart mechatronics and AI-based cognition, creating efficient HRC stations that are designed to be safe and guarantee the acceptance and well-being of operators.
MCI Benelux and Logos will act as the consortium partner in charge of dissemination and exploitation. The project will also seek to contribute to the debate on future EU regulations and standards related to human robot collaboration.
Introducing our new Paris based team! Logos has begun its global expansion in Europe: starting with Geneva, we are now expanding to Paris to explore new horizons and develop in the French market.
With a substantial expertise in transport and mobility – among others – Ludovic Cartigny is now head of the Paris office. For more information contact email@example.com.
