Reliable Electronics for Tomorrow’s Active Systems

Project description

Making active safety systems more reliable

Reliability in electronic-based systems is necessary to address the challenges that may arise. The EU-funded ReACTIVE Too project is bringing together experts from the industry and academics to research and develop an agile hardware development cycle with virtual techniques to uniquely address reliability and physical validation in active safety systems. These active systems monitor the performance and surroundings of a vehicle to help prevent accidents from happening and reduce the impact of an emergency situation. Ideas will be tested by partner companies in the automotive and healthcare industries. The project will also investigate the possibilities of applying artificial intelligence (ΑΙ), deep learning and prognostics to future electronic systems.

Objective

Reactive Too: Reliable Electronics for Tomorrow’s Active Systems is a research-focused project that brings together a unique team of academic and industrial members. This team will form a tight confederation to tackle challenging aspects of reliability and future developments in electronic systems. European organisations from Finland, France, Poland and the UK are involved.

Each partner country will supply both industrial and academic units.

ReACTIVE Too will do research into design for reliability for electronics-based systems. This includes the introduction of an agile hardware development cycle with virtual techniques to uniquely address reliability and physical validation in active safety systems.

Exemplar systems from partner companies in Automotive and Healthcare will be used to validate the ideas.

Finnish partners who have a track record in wearable electronics will bring their research in smart textiles to the team. Innovation in terms of design and integration of these smart textiles into the challenging environments of automotive and care homes will enhance driver information and ambient assisted living.

The project team is very privileged to have French partners doing world-leading research and production of unique devices in energy harvesting. Further innovation in ReACTIVE Too will bring novel flexible energy harvesters for integration into many sensors.

Industrially leading work is planned to be led by Polish partners to investigate the possibilities of applying AI, deep learning and prognostics to future electronics systems. These innovations should allow a unique assessment of long term reliability and shorten development cycle times, saving energy and money.

The team will be developed through a series of workshops and secondments. Future plans will be developed during these interactions to target new research and innovation topics and more intense interactions by making future joint funding proposals.
