I-SENSE Group of ICCS will participate at TRA2022: Invited Sessions, Papers and Exhibition activities

I-SENSE Group of the Institute of Computer and Communication Systems will participates in TRA2022 (14- 17 November 2022) with technical sessions, and other activities.  TRA, the Transport Research Arena, is the largest European research and technology conference on transport and mobility. In 2022, TRA takes place in Lisbon, Portugal. Themed “Moving together – reimagining mobility worldwide”, TRA2022 brings together experts from around the world to discuss the newest innovations and future of mobility and transport, building also on the Portuguese historical legacy and links to overseas transport professionals.

Our team will have a strong presence  in TRA2022 with the following activities

  • (eCharge4drivers project) Invited Session 50: User-centric and smart charging solutions for future-proof electromobility (Monday, 14/11,TIME: 17.00–18.30):  Across Europe, there are many EV charging incentives provided to citizens to boost the uptake of electric mobility. The deployment of a network of publicly accessible charging points for electric vehicles, must also keep pace with these developments without becoming a barrier. The availability of an appropriate infrastructure is an important step, but a key objective is to make electric vehicle charging easy to use. During this session, a series of successful tools and solutions will be showcased, focusing on user-centric EV charging solutions (eCharge4Drivers, USER-CHI, INCIT-EV) and smart charging (SCALE).

    ORGANISERS: Angelos Amditis, Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS). Evangelia Portouli, Senior Researcher at ICCS, will moderate the session and Christina Anagnostopoulou, Project Manager at ICCS, will present ‘ Charge4drivers; a look into easy-charging solutions and tariff incentives’.  

  • (RESIST project) Invited session 38-46: Innovative solutions for intelligent and resilient road infrastructure management (16/11, 15.00 – 16.00) : Natural and human-made extreme events increasingly affect infrastructure performance, including service disruptions and higher maintenance costs, and eventually jeopardize citizens’ safety. This session focuses on safer, better and more efficient road inspection, maintenance, intervention and resilience against such events. Emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Digital Twins and Autonomous Robotic Intervention solutions will be discussed, along with tools developed to predict potential hazards and related action plans. Six highly related H2020 projects will give insights into their perspectives of working towards a common goal, addressing key challenges related to integrated solutions, real-life situations, prevention of extreme events and infrastructure resilience.
    ORGANISERS: Marcell Boviz, ESCI, Angelos Amditis, ICCS. Margarita Kostovasili, Project Coordinator of RESIST will present a relevant paper.
  • (MOSES project) Invited session 51: Safe and efficient modal shift from roads to waterways: Automated technologies and processes, human-autonomy interactions (16/11, 08.30 – 10.00) : The rise of automation within the maritime industry has brought up questions on whether advanced technologies can contribute towards more sustainable cargo transport and how they can be implemented reliably and safely, considering the changing role of the human element. This session aims to highlight how automation can support modal shift from roads to waterways by presenting the latest research from the EU-funded AUTOSHIP, AEGIS, and MOSES projects. The session will attempt to identify challenges related to disruptive technologies and their interaction with various actors in the supply chain, as well as the expected economic, environmental, societal, and safety benefits.
  • CEDR TM4CAD 5th workshop. Implementation challenges of Traffic Management for Connected Automated Driving,TM4CAD (17/11, 13.00 – 18.00): The workshop will introduce assumptions on information needs and quality related to information exchange between traffic management centres and automated vehicles; and will determine practical and technical implications for physical and digital infrastructure and Automated Driving Systems (ADS). Participants will discuss and review use case case examples for traffic management for connected automated vehicles. Dr Angelos Amditis and Christina Anagnostopoulou will present and discuss on “Operating scenarios for testing Automated Driving Systems in challenging conditions (HiDrive project)” .


  • Dr. Angelos Amditis will be presenting at the invited session “Synergies of EU programmes to support the market uptake of innovative road transport solutions”, promoted by the EC  (17/11, 8:30 -10:00)
  • Margarita Kostovasili will be presenting the paper “Paving the way for the future of Short Sea Shipping: The MOSES project” ( Subtheme 2.4.1, 16/11 08.30- 10.00)
