An agreement has been signed between MASA - Modena Automotive Smart Area - and the China Automotive Engineering Research Institute

It is the first open-air laboratory for experimenting and certifying the independent driving and connected car technologies, coordinated by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, in collaboration with the Municipality of Modena and several local companies: the MASA Living Lab has entered the Chinese market.

One of the most important Chinese research centres focused on the development of new technologies for future mobility, the China Automotive Engineering Research Institute (CAERI), which hosts one of the four most modern testing automotive facilities in China, confirmed its interest in collaborating with MASA and Unimore to promote joint strategic initiatives.

At the end of August, engineer Paolo Burgio of the “Enzo Ferrari” Department of Engineering and Mr Francesco Guaraldi of the Department of Physical, Computer and Mathematical Sciences have been honoured guests of the Italian Consulate of Chonquing to participate in the China Smart EXPO, and specifically in the China-Italy  Big Data and Smart Mobility Forum, where they presented the MASA - Modena Automotive Smart Area project and relevant EUH 2020 class project. As a result of the visit, a first memo of intent was signed between Unimore and CAERI, essential to the financing of the next research activities.   

"Signing an agreement with the China Automotive Engineering Research Institute - one of the four most famous automotive experimentation centres in China - is the recognition of the quality of the work done so far with Professor Bertogna and partners of the municipality companies such as AD consulting and Danisi Engineering - DIEF professor and MASA project manager Francesco Leali remarks -. We are confident that this agreement will disseminate the excellence of our university in the East, that is increasingly looking at Italy with interest and willingness to start new collaborations”

Therefore, the agreement paves the way to various forms of collaboration: from the exchange of researchers, doctoral researches and students to the exchange of publications and documents, in addition to the opportunity to jointly organise scientific seminars, events and demonstrations on research projects of shared interest, ranging from the independent driving to the connected systems (G5 VS 5G), to the ITS solutions and data management relating to driving style, vehicle dynamics and NVH, other than vehicle safety and cyber security testing protocols
