This newsletter shortly informs about project progress at the end of first year. It briefly describes elaborated use cases and presents two of them which focuses on underwater solutions. The newsletter can be downloaded here.
In the beginning of the SILENSE project a preliminary set of use cases for the innovative ultrasound technologies in the project has been collected and elaborated on. This set of use cases has been used as a starting point for the further work with the system and component specifications. At the end of the first project year these use cases have been revised considering the work that has been done so far as the feasibility and viability has been checked in the mean time.
A dedicated literature study on the available reports on the safety aspects, exposure limits, effects on humans and animals, existing standards and regulations of airborne and liquid-borne ultrasound has been performed.
This public deliverable report summarizes the initial ideas and presents useful channels for dissemination of SILENSE project results. It also set up policies and rules for dissemination activities and provides the first estimation of volume of planned activities. Also, communication activities are described and specific procedures for each communication channel is adopted.
This public deliverable report collects the state-of-the-art of the electronics needed to drive and read-out the transducers, convert and process the signals, and to compute and communicate data in ultrasonics. It is in form of an electronic cataloque for ultrasound systems. This deliverable is the starting point of the WP3 activities.
The deliverable is the first outcome of WP 1 Task 1.1 of Silense. The aim of the deliverable is to give a preliminary description of the targeted application domains and specific use cases towards which the Silense development and demonstrator efforts will be focused.
