GALIRUMI
Galileo-assisted robot to tackle the weed Rumex obtusifolius and increase the profitability and sustainability of dairy farming
  • H2020
  • 2019-12-01
  • 2022-11-30
The main objective of GALIRUMI is to deliver robot weeding for herbicide-free weed control in dairy farming. Robotic weeding will reduce the environmental impact of dairy farming by eliminating herbicide use and reducing exposure of farm workers to herbicides. It will also remove an important obstacle for dairy farmers to switch to organic production, thereby contributing to an increase in production of organically produced milk and higher incomes for farmers.GALIRUMI will develop and demonstrate a number of innovative technologies in weed detection, weed degradation, autonomous vehicles and robot-as-a-service for precision dairy farming based on precise navigation provided by EGNSS.

  • 2022-09-30
The COMP4DRONES project complements SESAR JU efforts with a particular focus on safe software and hardware drone architectures. COMP4DRONES will bear a holistically designed ecosystem ranging from application to electronic components, realized as a tightly integrated multi-vendor and compositional drone embedded architecture solution and a tool chain complementing the compositional architecture principles. The ecosystem aims at supporting (1) efficient customization and incremental assurance of drone embedded platforms, (2) safe autonomous decision making concerning individual or cooperative missions, (3) trustworthy drone-to-drone and drone-to-ground communications even in presence of malicious attackers and under the intrinsic platform constraints, and (4) agile and cost-effective compositional design and assurance of drone modules and systems. COMP4DRONES will also build an open sustainable ecosystem around public, royalty-free and goal-driven software platform standards that will ease the development of new drone functionalities for multiple application domains. Lead applications driving ecosystem development and benchmarking on the fields of transport, inspection, logistic, precision agriculture, parcel delivery.

GLAD 2
GNSS/INS Low-cost attitude determination and navigation systems – Phase 2
  • H2020
  • 2016-02-01
  • 2018-01-31
GLAD-2 is aimed at the industrialization of an innovative product (GNSS low cost attitude determination and navigation system, reinforced magnetic immunity) and its commercialization plan. The innovative and technologically advanced prototype (TRL6), outcome of an FP7 project, (with proven feasibility through SME-INST-1 project) will be transformed into a TRL9 profitable product. It avails an identified business opportunity derived from the UAS/RPAS expansion and lack of precise and low cost attitude determination and navigation solutions. This will be done in parallel to the regulation harmonization in Europe, thus fostering this niche market, mainly in the civilian professional sector, for applications requiring low cost attitude and navigation determination, mainly in magnetic interference sensitive applications.|

AUDITOR
Advanced multi-constellation EGNSS augmentation and monitoring network and its application in precision agriculture
  • H2020
  • 2016-01-01
  • 2017-12-31
The goal of AUDITOR is the implementation of novel precise-positioning techniques based on augmentation data in custom GNSS receivers to improve the performance of current augmentation services and reducing costs. These techniques are already patented by the consortium and proven to offer better accuracy with faster convergence times than solutions commercially available. More sophisticated atmospheric models will be implemented to provide better corrections of ionospheric errors and further increase accuracy. All these advances will be integrated in a software demonstrator that will use public data from GNSS networks to generate these correction data streams. These new receivers will enable costeffective.

GLAD
GNSS/INS Low-cost attitude determination system
  • H2020
  • 2014-10-01
  • 2015-03-31
The objective of GLAD Phase 1 is the study of the commercial feasibility of a low-cost attitude determination and navigation system based on non-dedicated mass market GNSS receivers and antennas aided by MEMS sensors. The fusion of GNSS and inertial data takes advantage of the complementarity of these two technologies to achieve accurate and reliable navigation: inertial sensors provide excellent dynamic response at very high data rates, while GNSS serves as an absolute reference to prevent the drift inherent to the numerical integration of acceleration to calculate velocity and position. In addition, differential GNSS carrier-phase measurements can be used to obtain extremely accurate orientation by using a multi-antenna configuration.

TRITON
Trusted vessel information from trusted on-board instrumentation
  • FP7
  • 2012-09-01
  • 2016-03-31
A new consciousness has arisen in the scenario of civilian and commercial maritime control: surveillance and safety systems may be under the attack of intentional or unintentional or malevolent players.| TRITON is an R&D project that gives some of the possible answers to the threats above, focusing on increasing the trustworthiness of on-board instrumentation used to report vessel information to the control organisms. Today’s maritime surveillance operations rely on ship reporting systems such as AIS (Automatic Identification System), LRIT (Long Range Identification and Tracking) and VMS (Vessel Monitoring System), whose reported data (such as vessel ID, accurate position and time, course over ground, speed over ground, heading, rate of turn, etc.) are typically not verified nor validated in any way.

LOGAM
Low cost GNSS attitude and navigation system with inertial MEMS aiding
  • FP7
  • 2011-09-01
  • 2014-03-31
The main objective of the LOGAM project is the design and development of an ultra low-cost attitude determination and navigation system based primarily on non dedicated mass market GNSS receivers and antennas and aided by MEMS inertial sensors. Accuracy at low cost is needed in various real-time applications such as vehicle tracking, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), etc… To open the way for its widespread use the embedded applications requires not only accurate position and attitude information, but also strictly real time abilities, such as system efficiency, reliability and feasibility as well as the size, consumption and cost. At the end of the project our aim is to produce a functional prototype capable of demonstrating the targeted system characteristics fitting with a great number of present and future applications.
