Antenna Research and Technology for the Intelligent Car (ARTIC)
Start date: Apr 1, 2008, End date: Sep 30, 2010 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Antenna Research is a strategic enabling technology for intelligent vehicles and road safety services. Car-to-car communications, real time congestions localisation, obstacle and collision radars, on board sensor networks, etc. are based on novel antennas solutions and subsystems integration.Antenna Research in Europe received great benefits from the structuring efforts provided by the Network of Excellence ACE and its outstanding results, such as the Antenna cutting-edge research, the European School of Antennas (ESoA), the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP), the Virtual Centre of Excellence (ACE-VCE), the ACE Community (joined by over 300 European institutions and 1600 researchers). Moreover, ACE created the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP) to support ACE results beyond the ACE duration (see this frame, the Coordination Action "Antenna Research and Technology for the Intelligent Car" (ARTIC) is proposed to support the transfer of antenna technology knowledge from ACE to the Intelligent Car Initiative and eSafety in particular, in order to enable the best implementation of the future subsystems for improved safety, higher transport system efficiency, reliable information to drivers, etc.In particular ARTIC will operate in synergy and cooperation with the COMeSafety FP6 project to distribute information about latest radio links technology to the stakeholders, to present the best practices on antenna software and measurement procedures, to provide industrial training by the ESoA and to support dissemination by major International Conference. In addition, the ARTIC achievements will be spread to the stakeholders, scientist and the citizens by a dedicated section of the ACE Virtual Centre of Excellence.The Consortium is composed by top level organisation in European antenna research joined to representatives from car-to-car Communication Consortium.
