The 7th edition of the “Transport Research Arena” (TRA 2018), the largest transport research conference in Europe, has taken place on 16‐19th April in Vienna. Around 3,000 experts from all over the world have discussed the latest developments in the areas of traffic, transport and mobility during this time.
RESOLVE has got several chances to present its achievements and vehicle prototypes:
- Prototypes have been showcased in an area dedicated to RESOLVE in the European Commission booth;
- A live and interactive 10-minute project presentation has been given in the Media/Outreach area;
- Project video has been displayed in the Media/Outreach area.
A curious and interested audience has livelily interacted with RESOLVE partners who have presented the project.

RESOLVE Final Event
April, 25th, 2018 – Arsenal Premises, Brussels
Chaussée De Wavre 950 – 1040 Bruxelles
The RESOLVE project has the pleasure to invite you to join the Final Event, where main achievements of the three years project activities are shown. This will take place at Arsenal in Brussels on April, 25th, 2018.
RESOLVE project aims at enabling the development of a range of cost-effective, energy efficient and comfortable ELVs (Electric L-category Vehicles) that will primarily attract car drivers to switch to such vehicles for daily urban commutes.
The results of the extensive work within the project will be unveiled during the event, showcasing all the advances through two prototypes of full electric tilting four-wheelers belonging to L2e and L6e category.
You may also have an outlook of the results in some EU projects dealing with electric light mobility.
Participants from all over Europe will include international experts, Automotive Industry representatives, Motorcycle associations, representatives from the European Commission and other organisations, as well as the project partners.
The programme is available at: http://www.resolve-project.eu/final-event-programme/
Join the event, filling in the registration form.

ACEM conference on Sustainable motorcycling in Europe: RESOLVE prototypes unveiled
The results of the European RESOLVE project have been unveiled at the Sustainable Motorcycling in Europe conference, held in Brussels in Brussels (Renaissance Hotel, Rue du Parnasse) on 24 January 2018 and organised by the ACEM (Association des Constructeurs Européens de Motocycles), the European motorcycle manufacturer association.
The two prototypes shown – named D1 and D2 – are tilting four wheelers equipped with full electric powertrains; they are intended as a valid and practical alternative to cars facing with increasing urban mobility needs.
The RESOLVE project (Range of Electric SOlutions for L-category VEhicles) is made of 14 partners: Piaggio Group (coordinator), KTM, AIT-Austrian Institute of Technology, Bosch, IDIADA, Kiska, Marelli, Wamtechnik, RE:Lab, Ricardo and the universities of Florence, Pisa, Prague and Warwick.
The two prototypes embody a new concept of mobility through a range of different but complementary solutions:
D1 is an L2e category vehicle, similar to a mid-size scooter; it is powered by two electric motors, each one placed on a single rear wheel and controlled by an electronic differential; its top speed is 45 km/h (the legal limit) with a range of 100 kilometres. The batteries are swappable and can be recharged from a conventional power socket, while the solar panels on the roof and the regenerative braking system help improving energy efficiency.
D2 is an L6e category vehicle, visually similar to a small-size car but with a driving dynamic of a light motorcycle. It is powered by a central electric motor, which is part of the two-staged drivetrain, and drives the rear wheels by a teethed belt. Its top speed is 45 km/h (the legal limit) with a range of 80 kilometers. The shape of the bodywork is designed to minimize the drag as much as possible, the vehicle structure itself to minimize costs and reduce the energy consumption. The batteries can be recharged from a conventional power socket, while regenerative braking system helps improving energy efficiency.
Both prototypes will be exhibited at TRA Conference in Vienna (16-19 April) and at RESOLVE final event planned on April 25, 2018.
During the Conference, the discussion focused on how policy-makers, civil society and the motorcycle sector can work together to promote policies that improve the sustainability of Europe’s transport system whilst protecting skilled jobs in Europe.
