On behalf of  ARTEMIS Industry Association DESERVE project is very pleased to announce that the Co-summit 2015 will be held on 10-11 March in Berlin. This year’s venue is the bcc Berlin Congress Center.

The 7th edition of the Co-summit – featuring international keynote speakers, a high level panel discussion, an inspiring project exhibition and speakers corners fuelled by the project teams themselves – is dedicated to: ‘Smart industry: Impact of SW innovation’

A first-hand experience with European software innovation!

During the entire Co-summit, visitors will be able to roam around the project exhibition and share insights with key representatives from more than 75 leading European R&I projects. Both ARTEMIS and ITEA projects and their results will be showcased in terms of innovation, business impact and exploitation.

***The registration deadline is 13 February 2015 (subject to availability)***

The Institute of Microelectronic Systems (IMS) of the Leibniz Universität Hannover is working in the field of algorithms and hardware architectures for digital signal processing for applications with highest demands.

The development of complex algorithms is often performed in an iterative process, where the algorithm is run and the behavior is observed in order to evaluate the performance and quality. These observations are used to tweak algorithmic parameters and the process is repeated until the algorithm meets its specification.

Pure software implementations of complex algorithms usually run slow, delaying the design process. Therefore, the possibility to use hardware implementations in early design stages speeds up the development process.

At the Institute of Microelectronic Systems a method of connecting an FPGA development board with the ADTF software framework was implemented and demonstrated using an exemplary algorithm. This method allows implementing high demanding parts of algorithms in hardware that can be controlled by the ADTF software environment. The use of hardware blocks in the algorithm speeds up the processing and therefore supports the development of complex algorithms.

DESERVE at 2013 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium

2013 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (http://www.iv2013.org/)

Gold Coast, USA -23-26 June 2013.

DESERVE presented two papers on:
Control architecture for Cybernetic Transportation Systems in urban environments
Step and curb detection for autonomous vehicles with an algebraic derivative-based approach applied on laser rangefinder data.

DESERVE project launched in September 2012 – press release

Espoo, November 20 2012: On November, 20 and 21 2012, Partners from 25 European organizations gave the “kick-off “ to DESERVE, a Research Project coordinated by VTT. It started on Sep 2012, will finish on Aug 2015. It has been co-funded by the European Commission under the Artemis Joint programme. The project is a joint effort of major vehicle manufacturers (Volvo, Daimler, Fiat), component suppliers (Continental, Ficosa, AVL, Bosch, NXP, Infineon, dSPACE, ASL Vision, Ramboll, TTS, Technolution), research institutes (VTT, ICOOR, ReLab, INRIA, CTAG) and universities (VisLab, IRSEEM, ARMENIS, IKA, INTEMPORA, University of Hannover) to develop modern advanced driver assistance systems.
The project aims at designing and developing a Tool Platform for embedded Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to exploit the benefits of cross-domain software reuse, standardised interfaces, and easy and safety-compliant integration of heterogeneous modules to cope with expected increase of functions complexity and the impellent need of cost reduction.

Relevant market evidence and forecasts related to the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) show that these systems are going to become significant assets for the manufacturers (OEMs, suppliers) for the customers (in terms of product appeal) and for the overall society (significant improvements in road safety). The provided functions are becoming more and more popular, addressing different areas of support, such as longitudinal assistance, pre-crash, lane change assistance, automatic parking support and many others. The solutions implementing these ADAS-functions are becoming numerous, heterogeneous and provided by different suppliers, since the different functions are using different sensors and vehicle actuators.
To manage the level of complexity the different ADAS functions must co-exist and co-operate; their Human Machine Interface should be unified in order to implement an integrated, safe and harmonised interaction with the driver; the architecture should be flexible and modular, to easily allow addition of new (software) components, modules and functions based on the same set of vehicle sensors, actuators and HMI.
