SECREDAS

SECREDAS stands for “Product Security for Cross Domain Reliable Dependable Automated Systems” – a project under the umbrella of the ECSEL Joint Undertaking (JU).

SECREDAS aims to build a reference architecture for Secure and Safe Automated systems compliant with the new GDPR Regulation. The focus will be on automotive, rail and personal healthcare, all of which demand high security and safety, covering technologies such as radar, lidar, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure and in-vehicle networks.

CISC’s contribution is focussed on integration of enhanced chipsets providing multiple secure elements, thus allowing enhanced services and security on gateways for vehicles. This will enable now also 3rd party applications executing in a secure environment on the vehicle gateway to apply restricted access to users, maintenance staff and mobility service providers.

Start/Duration: May, 1st 2018 / 36 month

SECREDAS is funded by the Electronic Component Systems for European Leadership (ECSEL) Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 783119 and by the Carinthian Business Promotion Fund (KWF). This Joint Undertaking receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and by 30 the ECSEL Participating States. Polan

STEVE

How can e-mobility, light electric vehicles (EL-Vs) and e-bikes in particular, ease and improve the future traffic situation in small and medium-sized cities?

Possible answers to this question will be explored in the framework of the three-year research project STEVE (Smart-Tailored L-category Electric Vehicle demonstration in hEterogeneous urban use cases) funded by the European Commission. The cities Villach (Austria), Torino and Venaria (Italy) and Calvia (Spain) have been entrusted with this research project, that incorporates 21 partners from seven countries, that will invest together US$ 11.2 million (EUR 9.5 million) in the context of the project.

CISC’s role is to provide and integrate a platform enabling secure and personalized mobile ticketing and optional payment. With it’s SDKs and Cloud services CISC will focus on mobile applications to access and use the services combined with gamification concepts. The major aspect is integration within existing vertical applications (two- and four wheelers EL-Vs mobility service providers, supporters, tourist attractions) in the context as a user-friendly, adaptable to country behaviors and regulations, boosted by a set of gamification concepts attracting the system to permanent (urban citizens) and occasional (=tourist) users.

Start/Duration: November 1st, 2017 / 36 month

The project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Programm (Call H2020-GV-2016-2017) under the Grant Agreement No. 769944.

TrustVehicle

TrustVehicle aims at developing and experimentally assessing on the consortium vehicle platforms trustable and robust controllers and sensor fusion systems along with adaptive Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), which can safely operate in complex and real-world traffic situations. Together with 11 other partners from the whole vehicle value chain TrustVehicle will enhance the safety and user-friendliness of level 3 automated driving (L3AD) systems during the transition period from human driving to fully automated driving.CISC contributions are three fold:
– Provide modelling and simulation know-how supporting setup of simulation frameworks;
– User acceptance evaluation, vehicle driver interaction, driver interaction measures;
Verification and evaluation of HMI concept in terms of user acceptance and feasibility to safe autonomous driving functioning, statistical analyses with data disaggregated by gender

Start/Duration: June 1st, 2017 / 36 month

The project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Programm (Call H2020-ART-2016-2017) under the Grant Agreement No. 723324.

SCOTT

SCOTT is “Secure COnnected Trustable Things” – a project under the umbrella of the ECSEL Joint Undertaking (JU).

SCOTT aims to extend the IoT for wirelessly connected smart sensors and actuators to be used in mobility, building & home / smart infrastructure, and health domains. It will not just deal with ‘things that are connected’, but with ‘trustable things that securely communicate’. SCOTT will therefore enable efficient, trustworthy connectivity and facilitate ubiquity of intelligent embedded systems and systems of systems. Inter alia, SCOTT will establish a ‘Trusted System Development Framework’, will provide measurable security, and will create an unprecedented ‘privacy labeling’ to create sustainable trust in the IoT.

CISC’s contribution is in the area of definition of use cases and implementation of reference building blocks with focus on safety and security. CISC is leading all SCOTT’s “Standardization, Regulation, Certification” activities.

Start/Duration: May, 1st 2017 / 38 month

SCOTT is funded by he Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) under the program “ICT of the Future” between 06/2017 and 06/2020 (more information https://iktderzukunft.at/en/) and by the Electronic Component Systems for European Leadership Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 737422. This Joint Undertaking receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and the public authorities from Austria (FFG), Spain, Finland , Ireland, Sweden, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium, Norway.

HighWise

The project HighWise – Highly-Efficient Wireless Energy Management System for utility range Power Plants –  aims to develop a novel plant controller concept, which will integrate generation, storage and measurement systems, by flexible, seamless and secure communication schemes including wireless communications for new sensor technologies also. The concept is based on a distributed decentralized approach offering more flexibility and redundancy to increase overall robustness and increases failsafe operations by applying functional safety standard(ISO26262) concepts, also high efficiency, low maintenance and MTBF increment.

CISC contribution is in the area of the plant controller development and its middleware.

The project is funded by the Austrian Research and Funding Promotion Agency (FFG) under the EUROSTARS-2 Programm (Call Eurostars-2 CoD 3 2015) under contract 852876.

 

REFlex

The project investigates a localization system of passive RFID tags for an intelligent process control system. The real-time tracking of components, tools, and products is a key technology to optimize work flows, e.g. in flexible manufacturing. REFlex not only covers research of the localization system and modeling of flexible production environments: Ethical and social implications of the new technology (possible tracking of persons) are studied as well.CISC works on Project specific adaptation of existing RFID test hardware for flexible production systems and act as interface to relevant standardization bodies.Webpage: not available
