In the frame of European Forum for Electronic Components and Systems (EFECS), which was held in Lisbon this year, the project representatives from BUT, NXP and Infineon actively promoted the SILENSE project during the exhibition of ECSEL, AENEAS and EUREKA projects. Our project booth was attended by numerous visitors, representing other projects, research organizations and policy makers from all over the Europe. These visitor were interested especially in the project's ambitions, actual intentions and the results achieved so far.
Our SILENSE partnership had its fourth meeting; this time hosted by our British partner Speedo in their London office. With some exceptions all partner joined the meeting and carried out a lively debate on the latest developments of their technologies and respective integration into all the demonstrators. These are the cornerstone of the project and will need the full support of all work packages. It is equally important that the demonstrators clearly indicate their requirements to advance jointly and swiftly.
After its first four years of H2020 over thirty initiatives and numerous experts met at the ‘ECSEL in Germany’ Congress. It took place in Dresden on 5th and 6th September 2018. This platform provided an excellent opportunity to exchange experience, analyse technology trends as well as debate the future of the European research programme beyond 2020 and the input of German partners in shaping in.
For the development of the Smart Acoustic Wearable System demonstrator, channel soundings and ambient noise measurements were performed recently at the TNO premises in The Hague with assistance from NXP and Elliptic Labs. During this channel sounding campaign, ultrasound probe signals in two bandwidths (2-36kHz & 18-24kHz) were transmitted using a tweeter and received by six microphones.
On 18th and 19th October 2018 the SILENSE partnership will have its fourth meeting, hosted by our UK partner Speedo. It will be a great opportunity to bring all partners together again since review meeting. More information for consorcium partners can be found here.
SILENSE project participated on ECSEL JU Symposium 2018 in Brussels. The project achievements were presented to European and global stakeholders and decision-makers. More information about symposium at https://events-ecsel.eu/symposium-2018.
One of project partners, Florian Hammer from LCM Austria got interviewed by one of Austria's main national newspapers highlighting the relevant technical aspects of SILENSE project: https://derstandard.at/2000074206938/Handschlagqualitaet-zwischen-Mensch-und-Maschine
Special Session on “User-centric Evaluation of Interactive Applications”
Extended deadlines for paper registration and paper submission are Jan 19th and Jan 29th, respectively!
Interactive applications such as web-browsing, gaming and enterprise applications, but also IoT (Internet-of-Things) and CPS (Cyber-Physical System) require special approaches for QoE assessment.
EllipticLab's Norwegian branch located in Oslo search for a Post-Doctoral R&D specialized in Machine Learning, Signal Processing or related fields, preferably Acoustics, Computational Physics or Communications.
The new member of R&D team will contribute to leading edge of ultrasound solutions under SILENSE project, specifically using Machine Learning for Ultrasound. More details are in attachment.
Project partner CTR (Carinthian Tech Research) based in Austria published article about Silense project. Article is accessible on http://www.ctr.at/fe-kompetenz/fe-projekte/eu-programme/project-silense/.
During the last days of October 2017 TU Berlin hosted the first progress meeting of the Silense project in the very nice premises of Fraunhofer IZM in Berlin. More than 40 participants from all project partners have met together to review the actual status of the work carried out in all workpackages.
On 26./27. October the SILENSE partnership will have its second meeting, hosted by our Berlin partner TU Berlin in the premises of Franhofer IZM. It will be a great opportunity to assess the work of the first months and bring everyone together again since our kick-off. It has already become clear that a key element for success is the collaboration between the work packages. It is a crucial part of our project and this meeting offers us the chance to tie the established links closer. We will have plenty of time to do this in our meeting but also during the days and our evening gathering.
SILENSE Kick-off meeting was held in Leuven, Belgium on the 8th of June. More than 50 participants from all project partners had an opportunity to meet together, understand the project objectives and discuss the upcoming actions to achieve the proposed goals of the project. Planned work in all WPs has been presented and discussed so that the tasks can start smoothly and keep the necessary interconnections between all packages and in line with the project proposal.
Project SILENSE has officially started on 1st of May 2017 and the first meeting of the whole consortium is planned on 8th of June in Leuven organized by the coordinator – NXP Belgium.
