Description of the activities presented on the stand

IDEAL-IST is a service network of National Contact Points, and organisations working on behalf of NCPs, spanning 31 countries. Its partners search enables project ideas to be disseminated to over 50 000 international contacts. A brokerage service brings together potential partners of future IST projects by highlighting organisations looking for research collaborators and establishing common areas of interest.

International information events keep interested parties updated on IST research. These incorporate workshops to demonstrate the challenges and opportunities available, to explain how to write a successful proposal, and the project management issues which may arise etc.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

AMON addresses the needs of European healthcare patient, who are not confined to hospital, including those who are considered to be high risk and the elderly.

A Wrist Monitor Device (WMD) gathers vital information from biosensors, analysing human vital signs using a built-in expert system. The data is transmitted, via built-in cellular communication, to a remote telemedicine centre for further analysis and emergency care. The telemedicine centre provides a round-the-clock service across Europe. The findings of the medical evaluation are then sent back to the patient.

At the exhibition, the WMD will be demonstrated – it can measure heart rate, O² blood saturation, blood pressure etc.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

The Art.live project has developed an architecture and set of tools for the creation of new narrative applications, mixing real and virtual worlds. The results incorporate a WWW-compliant system, and software tools for automatic segmentation and description of natural video objects. Results include an implementation running in real time, a fully integrated system, and a design for embedded PCs for remote camera servers.

Agent technologies supporting the intelligence and distribution of the system are now being further developed and tested in the AgentCities project in conjunction with Alterface, a company set up as a result of the project.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

CARSENSE is developing sensor technologies and the fusion of sensor data for low speed driving. A long range radar, video camera and laser scanner mounted on a vehicle are able to perform ACC Stop&Go, based on object detection and road/lane recognition. Objects are detected by three sensors; lanes are recognised by the video camera, supported by a laser scanner which recognises the road by focussing on boundary objects. In a live demonstration, the laser scanner is used to detect objects (visitors passing the stand), the results being displayed on a screen. A video presentation will show real data collected by the video camera and the laser scanner for road/lane detection.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

The GÉANT gigabit research network provides a high-speed Internet to facilitate transferring enormous quantities of data over large distances. The DataGrid project is a very successful application of this technology. It has set up an international grid of IT resources for analysing data from scientific explorations using the GEANT network. Collaborations will enable researchers and scientists to perform their activities regardless of geographical location of scientific instruments and data.

There will be two demonstrations: ‘enabling life saving medical techniques’ and ‘easy access to the secrets of matter; the HEP exploration with DataGrid’.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

Highlighting the solid results of European research and development work in ICT systems and services for Education and Training, the Technology Enhanced Learning stand will give a picture of contemporary research efforts. Two topics will be addressed: the school of tomorrow (European School Network – EUN) and the lifelong learning (The Learning Citizen Cluster – LCCN and the project METACAMPUS). EUN will also present current activities using experimental broadband connection at schools (CELEBRATE). The Technology Enhanced Learning stand will also outline future scenarios for continued research within the European Research Area to respond to tomorrow’s requirements for education and training as we move towards a Knowledge Society.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

The MAPP project demonstrates how to improve industrial process operations regarding product quality and environmental impact without increasing cost. This is achieved by using multivariate and real-time methods. Three industrial sites have served as demonstration cases: truck cabin production, municipal wastewater treatment, and fuel tank production.

Project results include greatly increased prediction of production line painting quality at Volvo, and the ability to control effluent quality of process conditions at Borlaenge municipal wastewater treatment plant. Amongst the environmental benefits is a reduction in the use of chemicals.
