Milrem Robotics’ Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle to be Exhibited at IDEX 2021 https://tiresandparts.net/news/milrem-robotics-type-x-robotic-combat-vehicle-to-be-exhibited-at-idex-2021/ https://tiresandparts.net/news/milrem-robotics-type-x-robotic-combat-vehicle-to-be-exhibited-at-idex-2021/#respond Thu, 18 Feb 2021 07:42:41 +0000 https://tiresandparts.net/?p=34069 Milrem Robotics, the leading robotics and autonomous systems developer, will exhibit their Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle for the first time at IDEX 2021.

Milrem Robotics, the leading robotics and autonomous systems developer, will exhibit their Type-X Robotic Combat Vehicle for the first time at IDEX 2021.

The Type-X RCV is designed to support mechanized units and will become an intelligent wingman to main battle tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. It will be capable of taking on the most dangerous tasks and positions, resulting in lower lethality risk.

The robotic combat vehicle can be fitted with a cannon up to 50 mm hence it will provide equal or overmatching firepower and tactical usage to a unit equipped with Infantry Fighting vehicles.

“The Type-X provides means to breach enemy defensive positions with minimal risk to own troops. If a RCV is lost, its replacement will become purely a logistical nuance, however, lives will have been saved,” said Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics.

Milrem Robotics’ RCV will be equipped with intelligent functions such as follow-me, waypoint navigation, and obstacle detection. Artificial Intelligence will also be part of the algorithms. However, the true innovation will be Milrem’s totally new and innovative approach to allow remote-controlled operations on higher speeds.

The vehicle’s maximum speed is 80 km/h on paved roads and 50 km/h off-road. The low weight of 12 tons of the Type-X and high power with efficient power management provide a superior terrain capability and its low height of 2.2 m and a rear engine provide low visual and heat signature.

To create the Type-X Milrem Robotics utilized its knowledge gained from developing its THeMIS Unmanned Ground Vehicle, intended to support dismounted troops, that has been acquired by ten countries, including seven NATO members: France, Norway, the UK, Germany, Estonia, the Netherlands, and the US.

Milrem Robotics is the European leading robotics and autonomous systems developer and the leader of iMUGS – a 32,6 MEUR project funded from the European Commission’s European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP) to develop a European standardized unmanned ground system.

The vehicle will be on display at John Cockerill’s stand no B18 in hall 12.

Abu Dhabi Motors (ADM), the official importer of BMW Group vehicles in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, is pleased to announce that the MINI Paddy Hopkirk is now available across all showrooms.

Based on the popular MINI Cooper S Hardtop 2 Door, this exclusive edition is inspired by the historic rally winning model, and features the famous starting number 37 livery, a body finished in Chili Red, alongside a contrast white roof.

While 56 years have passed, memories of the great triumph achieved by the small car are still vivid. In 1964, the classic MINI Cooper S clinched the first of three overall victories at the legendary Monte Carlo Rally. At the wheel was the then 30-year-old Northern Irish rally driver Patrick “Paddy” Hopkirk.

In his honor, MINI now presents an edition model with exclusive design and equipment features to mark one of the most spectacular achievements in the international motorsport history. One unmistakable reminder of Hopkirk’s historic win in the classic MINI is the car’s start number 37, which is featured in stylized form on the driver and passenger doors of the edition model.

Hopkirk’s victorious run in the MINI Cooper S was widely celebrated by spectators on site and motor racing fans in the UK. Driving the small British car with his English co-pilot Henry Liddon, Hopkirk overcame the odds against competitors with significantly greater engine power.

The handicap formula in force at the time meant that differences in weight and output within the starting field were compensated to a certain extent. However, the crucial factors in winning the challenging chase over country roads and mountain passes, through ice snow, around tight corners, and down steep slopes, were the agility and reliability of the MINI Cooper S and the driving skill of Hopkirk.

The surprise win in Monte Carlo made Paddy Hopkirk the UK’s most famous rally driver overnight. At the same time, the classic MINI advanced to being a crowd pleaser and true motor racing legend. This status was reaffirmed in the years that followed when the MINI Cooper S dominated the Monte Carlo Rally. Hopkirk’s Finnish teammates Timo Mäkinen and Rauno Aaltonen added two more outright victories to the title collection in 1965 and 1967.

To this day, the winning streak at the Monte Carlo Rally continues to inspire MINI fans all over the world. With the MINI Paddy Hopkirk Edition, customers can now express their passion for racing in a particularly authentic way. The edition model combines its exterior paintwork in the style of the historic rally winner in a market-specific manner with 17-inch John Cooper Works light-alloy wheels in Track Spoke Black design and numerous other accentuations in dark colors.

The frame and horizontal brace of the radiator grille are finished in high-gloss black, as are the inserts for the lower air intakes, the opening in the bonnet, the door handles, the fuel filler flap, the tailgate handle, the MINI logos at the front and rear as well as the surrounds for the headlights and rear lights.

The start number 37 also appears on the side indicator elements known as side scuttles. Other unmistakable features on the exterior are the LED headlights and the rear lights in Union Jack design, stickers with the inscription “Paddy Hopkirk Monte Carlo” and a single white bonnet stripe on the driver’s side.

Like the tailgate of the edition model, this bears the signature of the 1964 “Monte” winner. In addition, the famous number and letter combination 33 EJB of the number plate of the 1964 Monte Carlo winning car is shown on the bonnet strip using 3D effect graphics.

Hopkirk’s signature also appears on the decorative trim strip on the passenger side, which forms part of the Piano Black high-gloss interior surfaces. Another exclusive design feature is the MINI LED entry sills bearing the name “Paddy Hopkirk”. The MINI Excitement Package and Comfort Access are also included in the MINI Paddy Hopkirk Edition.

ADNOC Distribution is the first fuel retailer in the world with 100% of its frontline staff working in its Service Station network now vaccinated.

The UAE’s largest fuel and convenience retailer has been committed to uphold the highest standards of health and safety throughout the pandemic, ensuring that customer and employee safety and wellbeing is always its number one priority. Providing access to the COVID-19 vaccine for all employees was integral to its ongoing support of the nation’s recovery.

“Our employees have shown a proactive commitment and unwavering desire in fighting the spread of the disease,” said Ahmed Al Shamsi, Acting CEO, ADNOC Distribution.

“I am extremely proud of their dedication to always upholding the highest standards of HSE, and they are shining examples of how important it is for us all to work together against COVID-19.”

The company’s efforts have included mobile vaccination units for frontline staff, with more than 7,500 of those working on ADNOC forecourts and in ADNOC Oasis convenience stores making the choice to take their first dose, with many now completing both doses.

The vaccination roll out is the latest in a wide range of measures that the company has put in place, including extensive COVID-19 testing for all employees, daily cleaning and sanitization across its network, as well as readily available PPE and clear health and safety guidelines at station and in ADNOC Oasis convenience stores.

Please provide us with a brief overview of the company?

We are a known lifestyle holding company with operations based in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait, Geneva, and London, USA and Far East. Pegasus Automotive owns several of the world’s leading brands in the field of luxury products–our strengths are in the automotive and retail industries as Pegasus Automotive Group.

Some of the iconic brands that we represent include Aston Martin, Rolls Royce Motor Cars, Koenigsegg, Sports Classics Heritage, Bizzarrini and more to come. We know the long line of heritage that these brands carry, which is why our business philosophy is focused on the continuing pursuit of excellence and the provision of the finest retail customer experience.

How has the coronavirus (COVID-19) affected the operations of the Pegasus Automotive Group? What is your game plan in terms of providing key customer support amidst these challenging times?

The emergence of COVID-19 early last year has affected all industry verticals–including the automotive segment and the entire retail business as a whole. Various markets experienced a decline, but the challenge at hand was how do you maintain one’s connection with the customer.

Despite the pandemic, the interest in cars did not wane, but we had to think out of the box and utilize innovation to keep the emotional connection with our clients. To address this concern, we placed concentration on reinforcing our digital capabilities to creatively engage our customers. We brought the showroom experience on virtual platforms to get a closer look of their preferred models, while they were in the comfort of their own homes. We conducted virtual sales consultations via online platforms and we even walked the extra mile by sending the car to their home upon request, including test driving the vehicle.

Our forward looking efforts resulted in positive outcomes for the company. In fact, some of the last cars that we were able to sell were actually completed via our virtual consultation service.

From a long term perspective, what impact will COVID-19 leave on the industry?

As earlier stated, the pandemic has managed to affect various industry verticals. As a recourse, it was just practical for companies like us to look for new marketing solutions that can help in maintain sales ratios within the automotive sector–which is why efforts towards digitalization and the implementation of innovative marketing approaches were used. Again, the excellent car sales we were able to post last year is attributed to our virtual sales consultation service.

Despite the importance of traditional marketing and sales operations in the automotive sector, e-business has become more popular among customers during this difficult period. The  COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that this type of trade provides an effective means to maintain customer participation and sustainability. Although virtual showrooms are popular with online sales, they still cannot replace real showrooms. It can be said here that the traditional and electronic processes at the level of marketing and sales complement each other.

As part of the ongoing efforts to address the impact made by the pandemic, what kind of strategy and forward planning should leaders be thinking about now?

Today’s crop of business leaders should know that speed is the name of the game–they should act swiftly and also be decisive in the process. Their thinking should not just be for the good of the company but also for the industry as a whole as well.

In dealing with the pandemic, we focused on closely monitoring macroeconomic indicators and changes in consumer behavior; constantly reviewing our contingency plans as new information becomes available; exercising rigor in managing our finances and utmost prudence on cost reductions.

The company continues to practice innovation in implementing its sales approaches. We continue to remain active and prepare our operations for recovery by taking these critical steps in promoting a safe working environment.

Name some of your best selling cars in the region.

The Aston Martin DB 11 is our best seller here in the UAE. The DBX, Aston Martin’s first luxury SUV, recently arrived and is already matching our positive expectations for its entry into the market. In my opinion, the DBX will take up a significant share in the market.

Please share more details about DBX. What should we look forward to and how will it fare against the competition?

The DBX, Aston Martin’s first luxury SUV has been very well received by the market. It is seen as an important model for Aston Martin and is currently being offered at prices starting from AED 917,000 including VAT.

The body structure of this new SUV was built utilizing a bonded aluminum construction method, which is both light and stiff and helps keep the overall kerb weight to 2,245 kilograms. Its power comes from the same 4.0-liter, twin turbocharged V8 engine, churning out 550 horsepower and 700Nm of torque, which can help propel the SUV from 0 to 100 Kph in just over 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 181 Mph (291 Kph). The DBX also comes with an adaptive triple volume air suspension and is integrated with the latest 48v electric anti-roll control system and electronic adaptive dampers. The suspension allows ride height to be increased by 45 mm or lowered by 50 mm, which further adds to the DBX’s capability to take on a wide range of terrain.

The debut of the DBX in Dubai demonstrates Pegasus Automotive Group’s continuous commitment towards bringing leading luxury brands like Aston Martin closer to their customers, while also promising a memorable and holistic customer experience.

What are your insights for 2021—will you be launching anything in the next few months?

The impact left behind by COVID-19 was harsh but offered a beneficial experience for the auto sector–with brands in this sector proving their ability to emerge from the crisis stronger than before. We are now seeing the advent of the auto market recovery in the UAE, following the partial lifting of the restrictions imposed due to the repercussions caused by the pandemic, as we expect the coming period to witness a promising recovery phase in which this sector returns to its usual levels of growth.

At Pegasus, we are now looking into delivering the best service to our customers–bringing them a key customer experience that is truly unique and unforgettable. We have exciting plans for 2021, which we will be announcing in due time.

Abu Dhabi Motors (ADM), the official importer of BMW Group vehicles in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, introduces the long-awaited and redefined five-door MINI Countryman.

Thanks to its unmistakable proportions, the new MINI Countryman is instantly recognisable as the biggest and most versatile member of the MINI model family. Characterised by its formidable performance, agility and personality, the model is perfect for motorists who crave individuality.

The vehicle has a range of wonderfully unique design touches that makes sure it stands out from the crowd. The spacious model not only has five fully-fledged seats, but also features a touchless-opening electric tailgate and a fold-out picnic bench which is compactly stowed away in the car’s luggage compartment.

From the outside, the model boasts a distinctive shape with a reimagined radiator grille that underlines the Countryman’s powerful design. Adorned with the iconic Union Jack pattern, the rear lights emphasise MINI’s history and its rugged, yet contemporary new look.

The Countryman’s distinctive interior design includes ergonomically optimised controls for ease of access, which both the driver and the front seat passenger can enjoy alongside LED lighting that adds a stylish ambience to the cockpit.

Under the hood, the ALL4 all-wheel drive system provides a noticeable boost in terms of traction, driving stability and agility. Adding to the enhanced engines portfolio, the new MINI Countryman achieves the best balance between driving fun and fuel consumption.

In terms of power, the MINI TwinPower Turbo technology is used on both 3- and 4-cylinder petrol engines, which provides a power range between 100 KW / 136 hp to 225 KW / 306 hp. Meanwhile the MINI Cooper Countryman ALL4 also features an 8-speed Steptronic transmission.

Commenting on the new arrival, Remy Hussein, Marketing and CRM Manager at Abu Dhabi Motors added, “The MINI Countryman can take on any terrain, whether it be city streets or more rugged paths, standing out amongst the crowd. Defined by its supreme mobility, and extreme versatility, the model attracts some of our most daring and adventurous clients.”

Packing a powerful punch in a compact design, the Countryman is perfect for those who crave the iconic MINI look but want a vehicle with a bit more torque. Therefore, we are confident that the launch of the new MINI Countryman is sure to make waves in the region.

We’re used to clients bringing us grand visions for their Bespoke Commissions, but this provided a new perspective altogether. In our response to the brief, we’ve worked at both the ‘macro’ level, referencing the Sun and planets of the whole Solar System, and the much more personal ‘micro’ level, centring our view of the world on the place the customer calls home.

Michael Bryden, Lead Bespoke Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

Inspiration for a Bespoke Rolls-Royce can come from just about anywhere – and in the case of the marque’s latest creation, literally everywhere. Commissioned through Rolls-Royce Abu

Dhabi, ‘Wraith – Inspired By Earth’ takes its design cues from the entire Solar System, and our own planet as seen from space.

The exterior is finished in Royal Blue, representing the 75% of the Earth’s surface that is covered by water. The most striking feature, however, is the bonnet artwork, which depicts a satellite’s-eye view of the Middle Eastern region. Centred on the United Arab Emirates, the panorama extends across the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman, all meticulously air-brushed by hand in a process that took over 100 hours to complete. The exterior is finished with a hand-painted Emerald Green coachline incorporating the Sun and the eight planets of the Solar System – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

By contrast, the interior aesthetic focuses on the Earth’s surface and the human and natural life that inhabits it. The seats are made from Moccasin leather to mimic the sands of the Emirates’ deserts; Navy and Cobalto Blue accents are suggestive of rivers and lakes and Emerald Green piping symbolises nature in all its forms. Arctic White ‘RR’ monograms and stitching hint at clouds and translucent running water.

The rear waterfall features a spectacular scene of atmospheric clouds rendered in minutely detailed embroidery using Photoflash technology. On the fascia, the Piano Milori veneer is embellished with a satellite image of the Middle East, so realistic that it appears to be a photograph but in fact is skilfully air-brushed. The Bespoke Starlight Headliner is embroidered to illustrate all the planets of Solar System, centred on the Sun. Other Bespoke details include treadplates, a clock with metal radial background, and inlays showing the planets in silver, with planet Earth accentuated in gold.

INFINITI Middle East continued its ongoing commitment to supporting road safety through its ‘Eyes On You’ initiative by donating infant car seats to parents of new-borns in Danat Al Emarat Hospital for Women & Children in Abu Dhabi with the support of its Abu Dhabi distributor Al Masaood Automobiles.

Using a portion of proceeds from its successful Ramadan car auction, which saw the sale of multiple QX80 SUV’s entirely online, the infant car seats have been distributed to new parent’s across select hospitals in the UAE.

“We are proud at INFINITI are able to continue the distribution of children’s car seats to new parents at Danat Al Emarat Hospital in Abu Dhabi,” said Karsten Jankowski, General Manager Marketing, PR & Customer Experience, INFINITI International markets. “We will continue to promote road safety as a priority to ensure children are safe on the road.”

Developed as part of INFINITI’s long-running ‘Eyes On You’ road safety initiative, the brand aims to educate parents and empower children to be safe on the road. Promoting the use of infant car seats is a key part of the cause to ensure children are seated safely in vehicles, after a regional survey from the brand revealed that 1 in 3 parents were unclear of the legal age requirement for car seat usage.

“INFINITI Middle East’s ‘Eyes On You’ is a highly significant initiative and as Al Masaoood Automobiles has been INFINITI’s partner in Abu Dhabi for over 15 years, we are happy to be a part of this noble CSR programme,” said Wassim El Derbi, Head of Marketing, Al Masaood Automobiles. “Ensuring the safety of our customers and their families in Abu Dhabi remains one of the key priorities for our company, thus we reaffirm our commitment and full support of the success of Eyes On You.”

Eman Al Shorafa, Chief Operating Officer at Danat Al Emarat Hospital stressed on the importance of such initiatives throughout the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the UAE saying, “Partnering with INFINITI Middle East and Al Masaood Automobiles comes in line with our continuous efforts in promoting awareness amongst our patients and the population of UAE on child safety. This also comes in line with our objectives in caring for our new-borns and helping them remain safe on the roads.” Al Shorafa added, “As a specialized women’s and children’s hospital, we have an immense responsibility towards parents and children, both as our patients and as part of the community.”

‘Eyes On You’ is closely aligned with the Dubai traffic safety strategy to reduce road fatalities by 1.5 for 100,000 population by 2021.

Boasting bold colour combinations reflective of its daring nature, the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Sportive one-of-one motor cars take centre stage at the world famous Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi.

Showcasing the unique set of two Black Badge Dawn and nine Black Badge Wraith, a photoshoot at the iconic Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi creates a harmonious collaboration of the luxury motor cars and the sporting atmosphere of the track.

The exterior of the Sportive one-of-one motor cars utilises a fusion of single-tone and two-tone amalgamations and features carbon fibre wheel rims that are adorned with a complementary pinstripe.

The interior boasts a matching technical fibre fascia that has been intertwined with a contrasting colour weave to match the exterior colour combinations, made possible for the first time especially for the Sportive one-of-one designs.

The exterior coachline features a unique motif which is carried through to the inside, embodied on the rich leather seating and taking centre stage on the dashboard. The woven leather door panniers and engraved dark-tinted Bespoke audio frets further add to the sporty ambiance, with its most striking feature, the Black Badge Indulge clocks.

Tarek Moataz, Rolls-Royce Brand Manager at Abu Dhabi Motors, said: “We’re excited to announce the arrival of the most dynamic Bespoke one-of-one motor cars exclusively to Abu Dhabi with the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Sportive. This unique set was specifically designed for customers who are looking for a unique luxury product with a bold and daring design.”

Limited to just 11 motor cars, the one-of-one designs are available now at Abu Dhabi Motors – the exclusive authorised Rolls-Royce Motor Cars dealer in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.

Abu Dhabi’s Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) and Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) had initially planned to implement its road toll system at the beginning of 2020, but now has decided to postpone this to 2021. The emirates’s road toll system, which is similar to the Salik system in Dubai involves imposition of toll on vehicles which pass through four tollgates which have been set up on busy roads in Abu Dhabi. The toll will be automatically deducted when a vehicle passes through the toll gates.

The system was supposed to start functioning from January 2020 and the government had decided to delay this by three months so that all road users could sign up. On March 16, the government announced via Twitter that all vehicles would be exempt from road tolls to the end of 2020.

The road toll charges would come into effect only in early 2021. The four tollgates have been set up on
Sheikh Zayed road, Sheikh Khalifa road, Al Maqtaa bridge and in Mussafah.

The toll amounting to AED 4 would be charged only during peak hours (from 7am to 9am and 5pm to 7pm, Saturday to Thursday). During all other times, including Fridays and public holidays, motorists can pass through the toll gates without being charged. The maximum toll charge will be capped at AED 16 per vehicle on a daily basis. Motorists who fail to pay the toll can face face fines of up to Dhs10,000.

Emiratis over 60, people of determination, limited-income Emiratis and Emirati retirees as well as llicensed taxis in Abu Dhabi, tow trucks, public buses and school buses are exempt from toll charges.
