  • ARTRAC - Next ARTRAC meeting to be hosted by VTT in Espoo
    the project is slowly going into its last year the meeting will be dedicated to questions around the integration and testing of the sensor delivered by SMS and the planning of the big public event in one of the maufacturers testgrounds where the results of the ARTRAC will be demonstrated In ARTRAC VTT is developing a radar sensor which in the future will allow to measure the road condition icy

  • ARTRAC - Report from a Partner: Polytechnical University of Timisoara
    method which we propose to be used in ARTRAC project Denoising is a wavelet based noise removing method which does not distort the noiseless component of the acquired signal and can thus improve the target detection by automotive radar A preliminary report presented in March 2013 at Timişoara ARTRAC meeting is an overview of method performances highlighting its ability to improve the detection procedure used in ARTRAC project Progress has been made towards a higher probability of targets detection by wavelet denoising Using the wavelet denoising procedure for detecting a DC signal embedded in Gaussian noise an important processing gain was obtained as compared with the usual detection procedure Though this gain is lower than the maximal value predicted by the information theory for DC signals the investigation of denoising procedures should be continued on more complex signals in order to implement it in target detection algorithms used in ARTRAC project In order to develop an algorithm for road conditions classification a preliminary report on radar road detection techniques was presented in November 2012 at Braunschweig ARTRAC meeting Preliminary road radar data obtained at VTT showed the way the radar data can be used to discriminate between different road surfaces

  • ARTRAC - EuroNCAP to drive availability of Autonomous Emergency Braking systems for safer cars in Europe
    AEB system on any of their new car models Autonomous Emergency Braking systems can help to avoid crashes or to mitigate their severity by warning the driver and supporting his braking response and or by applying the brakes independently The technology generally uses forward looking radar lidar and video systems to provide a complete accurate real time image of the road ahead Euro NCAP finds that premium brands have the best levels of standard AEB fitments Cars in the Executive and Large Family categories have the highest level of availability at least as an option However some volume sector manufacturers are showing that AEB can be offered as standard or as an affordable option on mass market vehicles Michiel van Ratingen Secretary General of Euro NCAP says A faster penetration of these technologies into new cars will make it more realistic for the European Union to reach its target to cut road deaths by 50 by 2020 Consequently Euro NCAP has decided to include AEB assessments as part of the overall star rating from 2014 onwards and hopes that European authorities will soon require AEB as mandatory on all new vehicle types Since Euro NCAP published the first safety rating

  • ARTRAC - Largest number of calls ever published in FP7
    actions for FP7 research results Launched in 2007 FP7 has a total budget of EUR 55 billion for research and innovation It has so far supported some 19 000 projects involving over 79 000 participants universities research organisations and businesses across all EU Member States with a total EU investment so far of EUR 25 3 billion By 2013 it is estimated that FP7 will also have directly supported some 55 000 individual researchers careers EU research funding generates significant added value for Europe For example one Euro of EU Framework Programme funding leads to an increase in industry added value of between EUR 7 and EUR 14 This current round of calls will leverage an additional EUR 6 billion of public and private investment in research Specific areas and topics that will be supported in the calls for proposals touch many aspects of daily life including climate change industrial innovation connected with piloting demonstration standardisation and technology transfer research training and mobility around the European Union and further abroad sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors technologies for urban areas and cities combating the threat of drug resistant bacteria innovative solutions for managing fresh water resources sustainable supply of raw materials to the EU efficiency in the processing of biological resources safe and plentiful food bio based products and processes new approaches to delivering public services and public policy sustainable low carbon urban environments energy supply and volatility combating diseases of the brain like Alzheimer s depression and schizophrenia mission critical space technologies dealing with exploration missions space weather space debris and collision threats post disaster natural or man made crisis management information and communication technologies ICT in health material and neuro sciences and neuro robotics and more To help spread research efforts more widely a new European Research Area Chairs initiative is being prepared A EUR 12 million pilot call will select a total of five ERA Chairs to be hosted by universities or other eligible research institutions in less developed regions of five different EU countries Building on the experience of the 2012 work programme there will be EUR 220 million to promote the use of promising existing research results whether derived from EU or non EU funding This includes support to develop research project results or to build networks initiatives to make this happen For example in transport there will be up to EUR 4 million to support the transfer of technologies between sectors Bringing public and private actors closer together is also the purpose of the European Innovation Partnerships EIPs being set up under the Innovation Union action plan The big challenges Europe faces such as climate change energy and food security health and an ageing population also present opportunities for new business and the EIPs aim to give the EU a first mover advantage in these markets Up to five EIPs will be supported including the EIP pilot action on Active and Healthy Ageing In addition the European Research Council s small scale
