Smart cities get a boost from Galileo
The vision of a smart transport system for cities has so far given rise to many technologies, from driverless cars to automatic detection of incidents and traffic light-free transportation designs. The GHOST consortium is contributing with a solution of its own: geo-localised ...
Robo-Mate: from brain muscle gathering to heavy weight lifting
Soon, European workers with manual handling tasks could see their jobs becoming a lot more easier. Technology developed under the ROBO-MATE project is set to allow them to lift up to 15 kilograms while making it feel like it was no weight at all.
A step up in solar cell efficiency
Improving solar cell efficiency is the key to reducing the cost of solar power. The new ultra-high efficiency photovolatics designed by the EU-funded HERCULES consortium are on the way to achieving this goal.
Roadmap to regulate cross-border electronic evidence in Europe
Implementation of new information and communications technologies into evidence in criminal trials means that regulations may not be harmonised between European countries. An EU-funded initiative has introduced a vision document for the development of a common European legal f...
New technologies for sustainable dairies
Milk processing, from the transportation and delivery of raw milk until the final product, involves a large number of heating and cooling processes. An EU-funded consortium therefore developed innovative technologies for the supply of heat and cold to make the industry more re...
