MEMSCON: Radio Frequency Identification Tags Linked to on Board Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems in a Wireless, Remote and Intelligent Monitoring andAssessment System for the Maintenance of CONstructed Facilities. The objectives of the MEMSCON project are: To integrate MEMS-based sensors and an RFID tag in a single package of small size that will…
The miniFaros project is co-funded by the European Commission in the 7th Framework Programme. It aims at developing totally new miniature LaserScanner technology that opens up the Advanced Driver Assistance System market for small and medium size cars and broadens the range of possible applications by its: low cost small…
Mobility2.0 will develop and test an in-vehicle commuting assistant for FEV mobility, resulting in more reliable and energy-efficient electro-mobility. In order to achieve a maximum impact, Mobility2.0 takes an integrated approach of addressing the main bottlenecks of urban FEV mobility: ‘range anxiety’ related to the limited FEV range, scarcity of…
MONICO:  Fibre Optics-Based Intelligent MONItoring and Assessment System for Proactive Maintenance and Seismic Disaster Prevention in Reinforced COncrete Tunnel Linings. Aim of the Project: To ensure the safety of vulnerable tunnel cross-sections or sections where very high standards of safety are required by integrating fibre optic sensors providing a real-time,…
For many decades, urban planning and transport evolved around the private car, which has resulted in problems such as congestion, noise, pollution, etc. To tackle these adverse impacts and improve the livability of Europe’s cities, citizens today can benefit, next to the private vehicle, public transport and non-motorised modes, from…
PowerUp aims to develop the Vehicle-2-Grid (V2G) interface, involving a full development cycle of physical/link-layer specification, charging control protocol design, prototyping, conformance testing, field trials, and standardisation. Its results will ensure that Fully Electric Vehicles (FEVs) smoothly integrate into emerging smart-grid networks. V2G technology will be developed in liaison with…
One of the main requirements of a major disaster relief operation is the availability of robust and reliable communication infrastructure.  In order to meet the sudden surge in demand, the communication infrastructure needs to offer considerable network capacity throughout disaster areas and, at the same time, to operate after partial…
The Integrated Project PReVENT is a European automotive industry activity co-funded by the European Commission (FP6) to contribute to road safety by developing and demonstrating preventive safety applications and technologies. Preventive safety applications help drivers to avoid or mitigate an accident through the use of in-vehicle systems which sense the…
    ROBOtic System with Intelligent Vision and Control for Tunnel Structural inSPECTion and Evaluation   ROBO-SPECT, driven by the tunnel inspection industry, adapts and integrates recent research results in intelligent control in robotics, computer vision tailored with semi-supervised and active continuous learning and sensing, in an innovative, integrated, robotic…
ard was a three year long project co- funded by the European Union. It started in January 2001 and finished in December 2003. SAFEGUARD aimed to enhance the occupational safety of professional drivers (with emphasis on truck and agricultural machinery drivers by developing a new, reliable, modular and cost-effective methodology…
SAFESPOT is an integrated project co-funded by the European Commission Information Society Technologies among the initiatives of the 6th Framework Program. This project is working on designing cooperative systems for road safety based on vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication. SAFESPOT is aiming at preventing road…
SENSATION: Advanced Sensor Decelopment for Attention, Stress, Vigilance and Sleep/Wakefullness Monitoring. Sleep loss, excessive fatigue, stress and inattention constitute the social diseases of our century. Within the "24 hour society" people tend more and more to exchange sleep and serenity for gain or pleasure. This gradually leads to an excessive…
