C³PO Success Story

12 November 2020


C3PO.jpg
C³PO aims at providing a Cloud collaborative and semantic platform for city co-design. The C³PO platform is unique in that it covers the whole urban project development process where cities empower, encourage and guide different stakeholders (citizens, decision makers, architects, etc.) to develop an urban project together. C³PO does not intend to replace or modify the existing applications offering unique but partial solutions of city co-design (simulation tool, open API, 3D modelling and visualisation, gaming tool, etc.) but can be seen as an open and generic intermediary that enables the interaction between existing applications through a unique multi-dimensional semantic repository (covering the different types of information in city codesign like GIS, BIM, electricity grids, traffic, etc.). As such, C³PO will enable the capitalisation of existing applications and data sources by enabling their integration as services, or by enabling them to exploit the C³PO Open API

ITEA Success story: ACOSAR

12 November 2020


ACOSAR project showcase
Virtual system development (“frontloading”) is getting more and more important in a plenitude of industrial domains to reduce development times, stranded costs and time-to-market. Co-simulation is a particularly promising approach for interoperable modular development. However, the coupling and integration of real-time systems into simulation environments (especially of systems of distributed HiL systems and simulations) still requires enormous effort. The aim of ACOSAR is to develop both a non-proprietary “Distributed Co-simulation Protocol” (DCP) for integration of simulation and testing environments and an according integration methodology, which shall be a substantial contribution to international standardization (FMI). The results of ACOSAR will lead to a modular, considerably more flexible as well as shorter system development process for numerous industrial domains and will enable the establishment of new business models.

SCALARE Success Story

01 July 2020


Success story SCALARE
Most product innovations today are enabled through software components, so it is no surprise that software is the primary means of competitive differentiation. Software plays a key role in the digitalisation of many products that hitherto were completely driven by electronics, so scaling software in a controlled and efficient way is crucial, and represents a major challenge for organisations. The required transformations are often driven by the technological evolution of products, systems or services as well as by how the business and the company are organised. In many instances, existing processes must be reshaped, and new best practices and tools incorporated. The challenge taken up by the ITEA project SCALARE, a joint effort of industry and academia from five countries, was how to support and enable organisations in scaling their software capability in a systematic, proactive way.

M2MGrids Success Story

01 July 2020


M2MGrids Success story
The M2MGrids project aimed at creating enablers for a dynamic cyber-physical information ecosystem that would interoperate in real time with the business processes of companies with real-life objects, people and things. M2MGrids focused on major disruptions in targeted energy and mobility domains. The disruption in the energy domain was related to operating models and the high cost of peak hours in energy grids. To make more efficient use of the energy grid, there needed to be a flexible and automated means by which to control both consumption and generation between multiple energy stakeholders and prosumers. The inability of multiple stakeholder systems to exchange information in dynamic situations (such as in a traffic accident) was leading to disruptions in the mobility domain.

ACCELERATE Success Story

10 March 2020


ACCELERATE Success Story Magazine footer
Innovation is much more than creating technology; it must ‘go to market’. Many companies need new ways to rapidly validate the match between the market and their innovative ICT-intensive technology. The ITEA project ACCELERATE took up the challenge of enabling the mass adoption of acceleration knowhow by European technology companies by focusing on two goals: the transfer of knowledge on a massive scale and the introduction of a new type of product development, the so-called validated learning process that systematically searches for the technology-market match by validating the mechanics of a business model. This way ACCELERATE set out to shorten the innovation cycle and time-to-market, and to increase the number of new products or solutions as well as the number of ideas that are accelerated and/or created.

BENEFIT Success Story

10 March 2020


BENEFIT project image.jpg
Three main challenges were confronted by the BENEFIT project. Firstly, there is the societal aspect of coping with the increasing number of minimally invasive image guided interventions. Secondly, the economic dimension concerns delivering care with quantified targets in terms of quantity, price and quality of care. The third element was to show the technical feasibility of an integrated infrastructure that includes all relevant imaging and data sources, the modelling, analysis and presentation of these data and the integration into a Clinical Decision Support System. The BENEFIT project addressed these challenges by developing new imaging procedures and quantification and analysis methods to collect information before, during and at the end of an interventional treatment.

MODRIO Success story

01 November 2019


MODRIO showcase
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are very large systems that not only involve a large number of stakeholders but are safety critical and have significant impact on the economy and the environment as well. This makes tools for the safe and efficient design and operation of such systems imperative. The ITEA project MODRIO, which ran from 2012 to 2016, was set up to extend modelling and simulation tools based on open standards (Modelica and FMI) from system design to system operation.

OPEES Success story

01 November 2019


OPEES_small.png
The ITEA 2 project OPEES stood at the inception of two important trends: open collaboration with open source in industry and open source tools for model-based systems engineering (MBSE). Neither of these trends were well developed in 2009, but almost 10 years later, and with acceleration through the OPEES project, we benefit from both good open source MBSE tools and many open collaboration initiatives in industry. OPEES was both a pioneer and a catalyst in this evolution.

SoRTS Success story

01 July 2019


SoRTS footer image
Radiotherapy affects not only cancer cells but also healthy cells in the area that is being treated, so it is important that as little healthy tissue as possible is affected. The problem is that the movement of a tumour under the effect of respiration, for example, risks damaging surrounding tissue, whereas MRI, the only imaging modality that can visualise the tumour well, traditionally takes minutes to create the image. Thanks to the strong results from the ITEA SoRTS project, physicians can now precisely target a tumour, even when tumour tissue changes shape, location, size or composition during treatment. Patients benefit from a less intrusive treatment enabling them to continue their daily lives.

Metaverse1 Success story

27 June 2019


Magazine newsletter image Metaverse1
Ten years ago, virtual worlds were already found in serious computer games and simulation models. However, they were mostly standalone and independent of each other with little or no connection to the real world. The ITEA project Metaverse1 set out to overcome this isolation – defining a standard to enable connectivity and interoperability between virtual worlds and with the real world. The objective was to define interoperability in such a way that it would be possible to exchange information between worlds. Even more important was the development of a standard interface between the real physical world and the virtual – simulation/ serious games – world. This made it possible to attach real world sensors, such as body parameter or environmental sensors, to provide input to simulations or alternatively obtain feedback from such models into the real world, for example to control lighting, temperature or ventilation or for personal wellbeing.

AMALTHEA and AMALTHEA4public Success story

12 March 2019


AMALTHEA project image
The ITEA 2 projects AMALTHEA and AMALTHEA4public are part of a 'string of pearls' in the automotive domain; successes that have pushed this domain into the next phase of its development. AUTOSAR, a result from the former ITEA project EAST-EEA, defined a methodology for component-based development of automotive software and a standardised software architecture for automotive electronic control units. However, AUTOSAR offered only limited support for detailed behaviour descriptions, which are indispensable for developing much more complex multi-core systems of high quality. Those require an increased exchange between tools. Multi-core optimisation especially relies on additional information like detailed timing behaviour. AMALTHEA set about adapting existing development methods and tools and creating a common model that offers the required description capabilities on different abstraction levels. The follow-up project AMALTHEA4public was set up to foster the transfer into application and to create a sustainable open (“public”) platform and a vibrant community of users and contributors.

MoSHCA Success story

06 March 2019


MOSHCA project image.jpg
The number of people experiencing chronic disease is increasing dramatically worldwide. The impact of chronic diseases is evident: it has been estimated that the cost of five of the major chronic illnesses could reach USD 47 trillion over the next 20 years and could claim almost 400 million lives within 10 years. The ITEA 2 MoSHCA project was geared towards improving patient-doctor interactions, controlling chronic diseases, developing technological set-ups that significantly improve the self-management of chronic illnesses, promoting communication between the patient and the health provider and supporting health staff in providing better clinical follow-up.

UsiXML Success story

06 March 2019


UsiXML language
The international landscape is quite diverse in terms of interactive software systems as they should be used in a wide spectrum of contexts of use. Each context of use covers various types of users along with their interactive tasks, using potentially several computing platforms or devices in multiple physical, organisational and psychological environments and locations. In addition, practices for developing user interfaces of these interactive software systems are even more heterogeneous. Evolving in so many diverse contexts of use is particularly challenging when the same system should be deployed for several targets. In theory, a single version of the software should be produced so that it is adapted to each context of use. In practice, this is simply impossible to do due to lack of resources and knowledge

SAFE Success story

31 March 2017


SAFE_success_story
Driving on the road is a way of life - whether for work or for leisure. Being able to get safely from A to B is something we take for granted. And today driving is safer than it was ten years ago, and ten years before that, and in ten years time it will be even safer. This progress can be measured - fewer accidents, fewer injuries, fewer deaths = less cost to society, in both human, financial and environmental terms. So the benefits of safe driving are crystal clear. But to get to that stage, a lot has gone on, and is still going on, behind the scenes and particularly in the software that has become the key ingredient of every modern mode of transport, the road vehicle being no exception.

NEXXIS Success story

17 March 2016


Magazine 23 - thumbnail Nexxis
The costs of sustaining healthcare are rising constantly: the global medical technology market, including devices used for pharmaceutical purposes, is in the order of 400 billion euros with a growth rate of 5% per year. Europe spends approximately 10% of its GDP on healthcare. Due to ageing of the population and increase of chronic diseases, growing numbers of patients require complicated surgical interventions, which may increase healthcare costs even further. One way to combat this trend is the replacement of conventional open surgery procedures by image guided, minimally invasive procedures as these have proven to improve patient outcome and reduce costs. The ITEA 2 project MEDIATE has improved these minimally invasive procedures by developing new imaging protocols, interventional tools and an architecture that fully integrates all medical imaging sources, displays and therapeutic devices into the interventional workflow, including optimised UI's and decision support.
