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.

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.

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.
