  • PYRONES - PYRo-mOdelliNg and Evacuation Simulation system

    Structural fires continue to pose a great threat towards human life and property. Due to the complexity and non-deterministic characteristics of a building fire disaster, it is not a straightforward task to assess the effectiveness of fire protection measures embedded in the building design, planned evacuation strategies and potential modes of response for mitigating the fire’s consequences.

  • Greco-Risks - Hellenic Natural-Hazards Risk-Mitigation System of Systems

    The proposal named "Greco-Risks" Hellenic Natural-Hazards Risk-Mitigation System of Systems (A real time 365/24 operational platform)" was selected for funding in the context of "SYNERGASIA 2011" national research programmes framework. Besides NCSR Demokritos, participating with the Integrated Systems Laboratory (http://isl.iit.demokritos.gr), the consortium includes a well balanced team of relevant government agencies, industry, SMEs and academic partners.

  • SYNAISTHISI - Intelligent Networks for Data Collection and Processing for Energy Conservation

    The purpose of the "SYNAISTHISI" project is to research and build a system that can seamlessly integrate heterogeneous sensor, processing and actuator networks and provide a flexible yet extendable service layer that can translate such networks (devices, sensors, machines, humans, etc.) into reusable service components that are easily “weaved” into applications. For the scope of this project several application scenarios have been identified.

  • HIPOW - Protection of Critical Infrastructure against High Power Microwave Threats

    The main objective of HIPOW is to improve the current European situation regarding awareness of NNEMP/HPM threats and the adequacy of protection of critical infrastructures against the threat by demonstrating to policy makers the seriousness of the deficiencies regarding the current situation, defining and topic “SEC-2011.2.2-2: Protection of Critical Infrastructures (structures, platforms and networks) against Electromagnetic Attacks”. Recommendations derived from HIPOW will be compatible with existing techniques and standards already used for other threats, for example lightning.

  • HIT-GATE - Heterogeneous Interoperable Transportable GATEway for First-Responders

    The need: Public Safety (PS) bodies & First Responders (FR) often employ heterogeneous communication technologies e.g. Analogue Personal Mobile Radio (PMR), TETRA, WIMAX etc. As of this constraint, FR units from different bodies cannot interconnect at the site of the accident when a complex crisis calls for cooperative actions (e.g. fire accident on a vessel inside the port ). The same constraint applies in case of cross-border crisis e.g. forest mega-fires.

  • PACT - Public perception of security and privacy: Assessing knowledge, Collecting evidence, Translating research into action

    PACT is a 36 month collaborative project, which aims 1) to assess existing knowledge about the relation between security and privacy and the role played by trust and concern; 2) to collect empirical evidence through a panEuropean survey on the public perception of the relation between privacy, fundamental rights, and security; 3) to analyze the main factors that affect public assessment of the security and privacy implications of given security technology.

  • ACRIMAS - Aftermath Crisis Management System-of-systems Demonstration

    Crisis management (CM) is a core capability of modern societies, but a highly diversified and heterogeneous area. Current. CM in the EU can be regarded as a “system-of-systems” integrating diverse organisations and components with different cultures, policies and assets, and various stakeholders and procurement schemes. ACRIMAS understands the term “system-of-systems” that it incorporates technology, procedures, organisational concepts, and human factors.

  • PERSEUS - Protection of European seas and borders through the intelligent use of surveillance

    PERSEUS delivers a comprehensive set of validated and demonstrated recommendations and proposes standards. PERSEUS has assembled major users and providers, ensuring privileged access to existing surveillance systems and assets for an optimised coverage of the area of interest. These users will define, assess and validate the alignment of PERSEUS's recommendations to their needs. PERSEUS also includes an evolution mechanism to enlarge the user base and integrate emerging technologies during its lifetime.

  • TASS - Total Airport Security System

    TASS is a multi-segment, multi-level intelligence and surveillance system, aimed at creating an entire airport security monitoring solution providing real-time accurate situational awareness to airport authorities. The TASS concept is based on integrating different types of selected real time sensors: sub-systems for data collection in a variety of modes, including fixed and mobile, all suitable for operation under any environmental conditions.

  • DITSEF - Digital & Innovative Technologies for Security & Efficiency of First responder operations

    DITSEF aims at increasing the effectiveness and safety of First Responders by optimal information gathering and sharing with their higher command levels.
    DITSEF will provide
    - Self-organising, robust ad-hoc communications where the existing infrastructure may be compromised, allowing communication between First Responders and between them and their command level
    - Accurate novel 3D positioning in indoor environments
    - Sensors that offer a reliable overview of the situation and of the potential threats (explosives, chemicals, fire, etc.).

  • HMFM - Hear Me, Feel Me

    The HMFM project deals with the chronic condition of vision impairment.Different degrees of vision impairments are inevitable results of growing old, as the physiology of our eyes changes with time when the eye tissues lose their flexibility and suffer from damages caused by everyday life, different health conditions (such as diabetes or blood pressure) and gravity.The possibilities to prevent vision impairment with technology are very limited, but there are promising possibilities to support the visually impaired elderly in better managing their everyday lives with the help of modern infor

  • OPTI-TRANS - Optimised Transport System for Mobile Location-Based Services

    The OPTI-TRANS project aims to create a Mobile GNSS platform which will provide commuters/travellers with the ability to plan their trip in an efficient manner in order to utilise and share a combination of public/private transportation by combining information from various public transport authorities and other private vehicle owners. It will display to the commuters the optimum router/transport combinations for their trips, based on their location.

  • EMERGE - Emergency Monitoring and Prevention

    Delayed calls of emergency medical services (e.g. in case of physical or mental disorders resulting from strokes or falls) lead to increased hospitalisation and movement of elderly people into nursing homes. This decreases their quality of life unnecessarily and causes considerable costs. Due to demographical changes in Europe, this situation is expected to get worse in the future. This problem is addressed in EMERGE by supporting elderly people with innovative emergency monitoring and prevention. Humans are bio-psycho-social beings, whose character is to follow typical behaviour.

  • LIAISON - LocatIon bAsed servIceS for the enhancement of wOrking enviroNment

    The LIAISON project will turn emergent technologies, applications and services into actual business cases in order to allow key European actors to fulfill in a competitive manner the needs of workers in their daily life, for seamless and personalized location services across heterogeneous network. It will provide end-to-end Location Based Services, applications and solutions and will contribute to new business models to secure the sustainability of the services and applications.

  • eSchoolLib - Toolbox for Schoοl Libraries

    The project will cover several needs of a school library like digitizing, archiving, indexing and searching in ac-cordance with an asynchronous educational platform with remote access properties.
