Antenna Reconfigurability using Magneto-Dielectric Materials: Modeling, Design and Evaluation
The research group "Prometheus", composed of volunteer students of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (ECE-NTUA) participated for eighth consecutive year in the internationally renowned European fuel economy competition Shell Eco-Marathon 2016, organized under the auspices of European Commission in London on July 1st – 3rd.
The IEEE NTUA Student Branch robotics team, composed of undergraduate students Ilias Theodoridis, Antonis Trichonas and Ilias Psyroukis and George Kovanis as their coach, took the 1st place in the 8th Greek National Educational Robotics Competition - WRO Hellas 2016 at the “Advanced Robotics Challenge” category.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is now inviting entrepreneurs to submit innovative ideas to the Open Call of the Earth Observation Entrepreneurship Initiative (EOEI). The initiative is looking for innovative business idea’s using Earth Observation data aiming to turn the grand challenges of our society, emerging business needs and advances in digital technologies into new growth opportunities for Europe.
The principal research target of the MMR-IBTM project was to develop low-cost arrangements with integrated passive microwave radiation monitoring function, which can be used as early warning and monitoring devices for sub-tissue abnormalities, such as initial stage breast cancer. In addition, a major business target of the MMR-IBTM project was to harmonically collaborate with a Chinese company by having complementary research and development competences, as well as by exchanging working methodologies and business mentality, and having as vision a future fruitful continuation of the cooperation, towards industrialization and productization of the project’s outcome.
In various exploration missions, magnetometer-carrying spacecrafts aim to reveal the structural composition of planets and to study the complex interactions between the solar wind and the planetary environments. Magnetic field levels are usually extremely low making the need for “magnetically clean” spacecraft. . The aim of this project is to increase reproducibility of test results by a reduction of measurement sensitivity to environment variations occurring during the test. The activity shall strive in parallel also to reduce considerably required test time and necessary operator expertise.
Based on freely available data published by the European Commission, ResearchRanking.org provides innovative estimates on the funding and networking perfomance of European research institutions. According to ResearchRanking.org the Institute of Communications and Computer Systems (ICCS) ranks in places 100-200 overall for 2015 and in the 4th place of Greek research institutes.
HeERO focused on preparing the field for the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call service“eCall” based on 112/E112, the single European Emergency number. The main objectives of HeERO were to define operational and functional requirements needed to upgrade all eCall related service-chain parts (PSAPs-integrated rescue systems, telecommunication-112/E112, etc.) to handle eCall, to implement available Pan-European eCall related European standards and to implement needed technical and operational infrastructure upgrades in each participating country, to assess the operation of the installed PSAPs via a common certification procedure and to produce recommendations for future eCall pre-deployment and deployment activities in Europe.
CityMobil2 has set up a pilot platform for automated road transport systems (ARTS), which have been implemented in several urban environments across Europe. Automated transport systems are deemed to play a useful role in the transport mix as they can supply a good transport service (individual or collective) in areas of low or dispersed demand complementing the main public transport network, especially facilitating last mile transportation at minimum cost and most importantly achieving high safety levels.
AutoNet2030 is developing and testing a co-operative automated driving technology, based on a decentralised decision-making strategy which will be enabled by mutual information sharing among nearby vehicles. The project is exploring a strategy to support the gradual introduction of fully automated driving systems (by the horizon of 2030) investing effort on the convergence of communications, perception and distributed control algorithms.
