Let’s put our brains together… Teoresi at the time of Covid-19Corporate
A few days after the exit from the acute phase of the Covid-19 emergency, we are taking a moment to tell you how Teoresi, during the last months, has never stopped its activity, and how instead it pushed forward a precise idea: knowledge is the only possible reaction to unpredictable scenarios.
The unavoidable slowdown of some activities allowed us to intensify, already from the beginning of April, several internal development and training paths, some of which were previously taken and other defined from scratch.
We called the initiative “Let’s put our brains together”, and it included the following actions:
- Video tutorials. With the purpose of sharing concrete experiences and solutions, videos about theoretical and practical aspects of some specific technologies or practices to adopt were shared in our e-learning platform. The tutorials were entirely realized by the engineers of Teoresi.
- Products webinars. We launched some webinars about our technological partners’ products. Thank to them, over 150 colleagues had the chance to deepen their knowledge of the products that Teoresi distributes in Italy. Among the many topics covered, we spoke about software solutions for the development of ECU (Electronic Control Unit) in the automotive department, with RA Consulting products; haptic technologies and 3D modeling for the organic design of complex figures, thanks to the softwares and devices of Geomagic by 3D Systems; and finally about Intrepid tool for engineers who deal with communication networks in vehicles, testing and development of embedded softwares.
- Virtual cocktails. We realized a weekly program of virtual appetizers , in which some colleagues with advanced skills in different technological areas made their expertise and know-how available to everybody, creating an extended network of shared knowledge. Among the various topics that were covered, there were Model Based Design, Alexa Technologies by Amazon and Standard AUTOSAR.
- Tech challenge: think disruptive & be resilient. A real challenge of ideas that involved 70 Teoresi colleagues distributed in 20 teams, with the aim to give life to as many innovative projects, and make some of them real prototypes that will enrich our demo room. In the challenge, 20 idea about different themes were presented: from ADAS to predictive maintenance, from food & beverage to open banking and biomedical application. During the online Tech Challenge Award Ceremony, which took place on April 30, we announced the winner projects and three special prices.
Solidarity, prospective vision and adaptability were needed to cope with the abrupt change of habits that involved everyone of us in the last months. We decided not to stop: some of these activities are developing, while others are only waiting to be realized.
In the meantime, we treasure our story of resilience. Getting ready for the next challenge.
