PV3e Laval (ESTACA)

The engineering college specialising in Mobility will be represented by its student association PV3e Laval (standing for ESTACA Laval students Energy Vehicle Project). PV3e is an R&D association which promotes the use of hydrogen and the discovery of autonomous mobility in the transport field. 

It will present its iDrogen vehicle, powered entirely by hydrogen and built by its students, and which notably runs in the Shell Eco-Marathon 2019.

The National Group for Automotive Training will be organising five starter workshops and several talks in its area:

5 starter workshops

From zero ADAS to 100% autonomous

Understanding the different driving grades of a vehicle (without assistance / fully autonomous); how mobility is changing.

The aim is to drive a car using a virtual reality headset and screens, on a city road and on the open road. The different scenarios range from a vehicle with no ADAS to a fully automated vehicle. 

Visitors will be able to see what the “player” does.

Lenght: 5 to 10 minutes

ADAS: impact on skills in the workshop  

Introduction to sensors and focus on workshop cameras (how to adjust them, their limitations, etc.).

Lenght: 15 minutes

Connected vehicles from all angles  

Presentation of a connected light or heavy duty vehicle from all angles (terminal, SIM card, etc...) A 3D animation presents the connected vehicle and the services that can be associated with it. Two versions can be displayed alternately: light vehicle and heavy duty vehicle.

Lenght: 4 to 5 minutes

Paint application, a professional technique

Learning all about paint application techniques and gauging how to manipulate the paint gun (load, distance, etc.) 

360 Diagnostics: bodywork and paint

With the help of a tablet scanning a visual element on the wall, watch a video on the tablet and answer the questions on the four themes. The training consultant in attendance will go over and explain the right answers to the players. 

Lenght: 10 to 15 minutes
