Smart and Networking UnderWAter Robots in Cooperation Meshes (SWARMs)

Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2018,

Nowadays, the major part of offshore operations is done by divers in dangerous missions. Since their number is limited, the dependency on their work represents a real threat to the offshore industry. The extended use of unmanned underwater vehicles (AUVs/ROVs) could solve this problem but since they are usually tailor-made for a specific task and difficult to operate their deployment is very expen ...

Adaptive Cooperative Control in Urban (sub) Systems (ACCUS)

Start date: Jun 1, 2013, End date: Jan 31, 2016,

Urban systems like traffic, energy, and outdoor lighting are managed by self-contained embedded systems – though the managed processes are deeply interconnected. New applications and collective optimization require integration of these systems which represents a truly “systems of systems” integration problem: these urban systems evolve independently, have their own purpose and internal policies wh ...

Key questions in physics can be answered only by constructing a giant underground observatory to search for rare events and study terrestrial and astrophysical neutrinos. The Astroparticle Roadmap of ApPEC/ASPERA strongly supports this, recommending that: “a new large European infrastructure of 100'000-500'000 ton for proton decay and low-energy neutrinos be evaluated as a common design study tog ...
