From 1st to 2nd April 2020 the SILENSE partnership will have its last before-review meeting, originally planned as face-to-face in Evry organized by our French partner IMT. Due to travel restrictions the meeting will be organized using online tools. More information for consorcium partners can be found here.
On September 20th the project partner IMT organized internal workshop at its premises in Evry (France). Current state of Machine Learning based algorithms for use with ultrasound were discussed. Every partner present (IMT, BUT, UTIA, TNO, SINTEF and IMEC) participated in fruitfull discussions. At the end of the day, everyone left with vision of steps that need to be done to reach the common goal, to have functional chain from ultrasound sensor to machine learned algorithm.
On 18th of July 2019 the SILENSE partnership had its second review meeting in Brussels. Current status of every work package and demo was presented. The reviewers evaluated achievements and were amazed by progress made in the second year of the project. After successful review every partner is now fully focusing on the third and last year of the project to reach all set goals.
On 18th of July 2019 the SILENSE partnership will have its second review meeting focusing to results and achievements reached in two years after the start of the project.
The meeting will be held at ECSEL JU White Atrium Building, Avenue de la Toison d'Or 56-60, 1060 Brussels.
During the last week of May our SILENSE partnership had already its fifth meeting; this time hosted by our Norwegian partner SINTEF at the premises of Meet Ullevaal with lovely view on National Football Stadium in Oslo. Almost all partners joined the meeting and carried out multiple presentations on results of their work after two years of the project. The main topics of the two-day meeting were: overview of each work package, current status of demonstrators, standardization overview and notes on dissemination & exploitation.
From 27th to 29th May 2019 the SILENSE partnership will have its next meeting, organized by our Norway partner SINTEF with the support by another parther Elliptic Labs. It will be a great opportunity to bring all partners together again since last meeting. More information for consorcium partners can be found here.
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://www.ecsel.eu/news/ecsel-ju-symposium-2018.
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.
