On Thursday 25 June, the premiere of the event presenting the pre-industrialised version of the TUC.technology electric platform was aired.
Tuc is a Turin-based company founded by Ludovico Campana and Sergio Pininfarina. Having taken part in CES in Las Vegas in 2019 and being listed as one of the 10 most promising Italian start-ups in the mobility sector by Wired, it went on to debut its patented technology, based on the architecture of a standard plug&play vehicle. It is modular, to allow the addition of various technological devices based on the needs and tastes of the consumer, all connected using fibre optics.
The digital and structural TUC.plug connector supplies power and connectivity to the various devices, which may be connected at different times: whether they are seats, child seats, screens or other accessories. In fact, many companies have already demonstrated their faith in the project, developing prototypes compatible with the TUC platform: these include Volkswagen, Bosch, Chicco, and the technology companies Amet, Intel, Cisco and Tim, to name just a few.
Demonstrating a constant dedication to innovation and research, Lavazza has developed a coffee machine for the TUC platform, allowing the user to enjoy a cutting-edge experience of top-class coffee, even while on the road.
Fabio Scaltritti, Chief R&D Officer at Lavazza: “Innovation plays a key role in the history of Lavazza. It allows us to improve the present, but above all it helps us to plan our future. It is an essential engine in spreading the culture of Italian coffee all over the world.”
The presentation event was live-streamed, with the footage shot inside La Centrale at Nuvola Lavazza, which had already hosted the first event for the launch of the platform in 2018. La Centrale has recently been fitted out with the necessary equipment to host live events, in accordance with applicable safety standards, which can be enjoyed via the web.
