LEAKING: LEAK Detection and Reliability-Based Life Prediction of Underground Water PipING. "LEAKING" (GRD1-2001-40284) is an EU co-funded project, aiming at the development of an innovative platform for the detection of leakages in underground water pipes. LEAKING seeks the solution to this severe financial and public health issue with efficient, non-destructive…
EU 7th Framework Project ManuVAR Will Change Approach to High Value High Knowledge Manual Work The ManuVAR project was launched in May 2009 under the EU 7th Framework Programme. The ManuVAR project will demonstrate that high value, high knowledge manual work presents an opportunity to improve the competitiveness of EU…
Storing water in aquifers during times of excess can help address water scarcity challenges experienced in many parts of the Mediterranean Basin. In principal, large storage capacity is available in shallow aquifers, either due to thick unsaturated zones or due to already depleted water resources in overexploited aquifers. In addition,…
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…
Over the next three and a half years, the €15.6 million MOBiNET project plans to capitalise on the widespread growth in smartphones, mobile data services, and cloud-based computing to launch a new generation of travel apps for European citizens, and transport services for businesses and local authorities.   Intelligent transport…
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…
