Malaga, test lab for the mobility of the future
Tramline technology was the starting point for the system used in PALOMA. This technology is called SRS (Static Recharge Solution) and was developed by Alstom. It uses a supply system on the ground, which then charges the bus using collector shoes located underneath the vehicle that are activated by telecommunication signals.
Malaga was the location chosen for this project, it is a real-life test lab and a benchmark for this and other projects that have been rolled out over the years thanks to our Living Lab Smartcity Malaga where we test and endorse different technologies that help make Malaga a smart city.
The PALOMA project is co-financed by the European Union, using funds from the ERDF and the CDTI (the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology). It also has the backing of Malaga City Council, the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the University of Malaga.
