Vicente, 5 ans et demi, 1 mètre environ, cheveux châtain courts, yeux marron, porteur de lunettes de vue, vêtu d’un haut de pyjama avec logo “CARS” et d’un caleçon bleu a été enlevé le 29 mars 2017 à Clermont-Ferrand par son père Jason LOPEZ, individu de type méditerranéen, yeux marron, cheveux courts noir et porteur d’une barbe courte.
Ils circuleraient dans un véhicule BMW ou MERCEDES de couleur noire dont l’immatriculation débuterait par les lettres VP ou VB (immatriculation nouvelle) et comportant en fin de plaque les chiffres 63 du département du Puy de Dôme.
Si vous localisez l'enfant ou le suspect, n'intervenez pas vous-même, appelez immédiatement le 197 ou envoyez un courriel à firstname.lastname@example.org

Amid rising energy prices, skyrocketing demand for public transport, an increasingly digital society, and sweeping rail market reform, we’re transforming our Innovation & Research (I&R) process to create tomorrow’s mobility.
Making the transition from R&D to RID—Research, Innovation & Development—means adopting new innovation management processes. Managing innovation is the core mission of SNCF EPIC’s Innovation & Research division, and our Labs and Minilabs play an especially important role. Created in 2010, they focus on key issues for SNCF—infrastructure maintenance in heavily developed areas, energy, public transport/mass transit, mobility for seniors, eco-design, and many more.
Under SNCF’s partnership with the chair for Theory and Method for Innovative Design at the Mines ParisTech engineering school, our Labs and Minilabs have adopted the Define-Knowledge-Concept-Proposal (DKCP) method to manage innovative design and generate effective programmes and proposals. With DKCP, innovators can take existing ideas to new levels—and generate revolutionary new concepts.
At SNCF, we want to get clients from door to door, whether they’re taking a long journey or just commuting day to day. And we’re developing important new applications and technologies to help achieve this new mobility.
Mytripset: multimodal trip planning
Launched in July 2012 in our VSC (voyages-sncf.com) Lab, Mytripset is a travel-planning tool that passengers can use to plan their travel on a computer or tablet, choosing from a wide range of itineraries and multimodal solutions—trains, planes, automobiles, ferries, buses and more. With Mytripset, they can map out an entire journey, from their front door to the exact address of their vacation hotel; research local transport options on both ends of the trip; filter results by price, length of journey and transport mode; and even calculate the carbon footprint of each itinerary. By March 2013, 50,000-60,000 people were consulting the app every month, and thanks to feedback from the first group of users, we're improving it all the time. Mytripset will be available for smartphones by the end of 2013.
Fluvio: managing passenger flow in our stations
We’re measuring passenger flow in our stations with Fluvio, a tool that combines existing security cameras with a new counting technology. Using image- and data-processing algorithms, it can estimate passenger flow continuously and over a wide area, delivering reliability that is significantly superior to manual counting methods. The purpose? Offering our clients the right service in the right place at the right time. After an experimental run in the Paris-Montparnasse station, a prototype will be installed in one or more major stations.
Today every major city in the world is struggling to provide better public transport by expanding and diversifying its transport infrastructure. Which, in turn, has created a market with new international growth opportunities for SNCF. And in that market our maintenance teams have a competitive edge, not just because of their transport infrastructure know-how and familiarity with system wear and tear, but also because of their ongoing effort, starting in 2010, to develop a next-generation approach to infrastructure maintenance that meets the special requirements of mass transit systems.
Among other initiatives, we’ve created a Public Transport Lab aimed at increasing transport capacity and making urban travel more comfortable and pleasant. This open innovation initiative has brought together some 60 SNCF Group employees from a wide range of areas—marketing, infrastructure, strategy and more—to trigger new ideas.
Today our Public Transport Lab is working to:
SNCF is the single largest electricity consumer in France, accounting for 1.5% of the nation’s energy output, and with train operation accounting for 89% of our power bill, we’re highly energy-dependent. Bottom line: getting energy use under control is critical to growing our business. Two executive committees have worked exclusively on our energy transition since late 2012, and they’ve identified our first step—improving energy efficiency, optimizing our energy purchasing policy, developing and deploying a corporate energy policy, and educating our managers. By the year 2020, we plan to reduce the energy consumption of our rail facilities by 20%.
We’ll start by optimizing our existing facilities—equipment, stations, and other sites—and adopting new energy management practices that will allocate available energy as efficiently as possible. To achieve this goal, we’ll take two essential and complementary steps:
This will also help us meet our targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Under France's national plan for adapting to climate change, our goals are to reduce passenger emissions by another 40% and freight emissions by another 33% by 2020.
Our Innovation & Research and Sustainable Development divisions invite you to experience the cutting edge of eco-design—a revolutionary break with conventional industrial attitudes. This approach to design inspires practitioners to innovate by abandoning their usual working and methods and adopting new ways of thinking.
