On 1st January 2015 the “TAPPS” Project (Trusted Application for Open Cyber Physical System) started. It has been funded by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 Framework.

The project aims at the development of a set of applications for Cyber-Physical systems able to guarantee a high degree of reliability and therefore able to manage different critical aspects for human safety in a wide range of products.

The strong collaboration between Research centres, technology providers and use-cases, all involved in the TAPPS consortium, will lead to the creation of innovative applications to be tested on Energica electric motorcycles (Energica Ego and Energica Eva).

The TAPPS project goes beyond traditional solutions for safety, security and reliability in the CPS domain and offers a new approach towards extensibility of CPS platforms, the TAPPS concept.

TAPPS is based on a dedicated execution environment for distributed, safety-critical CPS applications offering multiple layers of security and a holistic, open end-to-end tool chain for developing and deploying CPS Apps.

Thanks to the activities carried out within the TAPPS project, Energica Motor Company is working to set up a series of after-sales services based on a trusted technology, able to deliver a guaranteed advanced use of the connectivity functions of the motorcycles, combined with an high level of safety for the driver.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 645119.

CharIN e.V.

Energica Motor Company S.p.A. joins CharIN e.v., a registered association founded by mayor manufacturers and suppliers for the electric automotive industry. Energica is the only manufacturer of electric motorcycles to join the Association.

The primary aims of CharIN e.v. are:

  • To develop and establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the standard for charging battery-powered electric vehicles of all kinds
  • To draw up requirements for the evolution of charging-related standards and develop a certification system for use by manufacturers implementing the CCS in their products
  • To promote the CCS standard worldwide

Right from the start Energica believed and invested on the Combined Charging System (CCS) as standard: today Energica is the only electric motorcycle manufacturer to include in its products the DC Fast Charging technology based on CCS Combo.

Over the course of the last few years, some landmark decisions have been taken in Europe that support the Combined Charging System standard as the target solution for all charging scenarios – Find out more!
