European Research Training in Monte Carlo based Innovative Management and Processing for an Unrivalled Leap in Sensor Exploitation

European Research Training in Monte Carlo based Innovative Management and Processing for an Unrivalled Leap in Sensor Exploitation

Objective

Sensor technology has become ubiquitous in almost every area of our daily life. Its application has the potential to significantly improve our quality of life, for example through systems for independent living (ambient assisted living) or accident prevention in traffic. The MC IMPULSE consortium has identified sensor data processing as a key technological area where Europe can make a difference. Additional investment in research and technological development, training of researchers and networking the existing research capacities both in academia and industry are prerequisites for success. MC IMPULSE exactly aims at these strategic objectives. MC IMPULSE aims to develop and execute a multidisciplinary and networked European research training programme. To date no specific training programme in this field is available in Europe while well trained researchers and engineers are scarce. The MC IMPULSE consortium unites highly complementary partners from industry (including Thales, Saab and 2 SME’s) universities and a research institute, guaranteeing an interdisciplinary research and training programme. Within MC IMPULSE 13 early stage researchers and two experienced researchers will be trained. The MC IMPULSE consortium will build a durable cooperation in research and training in the field of sensor data processing. The research programme will focus on the development of novel methods for real-time signal and data processing, based on data collected form sensors or networks of sensors. Specific innovations expected to be achieved through MC IMPULSE are: • detecting and tracking objects by processing information from (a network of) sensors, • fusing information from multiple sensors and their efficient processing for on-line applications. Dissemination methods to realize optimal impact on the European academic community, industry and society include scientific publications, presentations at conferences and dissemination through websites.
