iDev40

iDev40 focuses on “digitally connecting” value chains to facilitate and strengthen the innovation capacity of large and small European Electronic Components and System actors for sustainably competitive Electronic Components and Systems “Made in Europe”.

The iDev40 (Integrated Development 4.0) European research project on networking for development and production processes for electronic components and systems has been started on 1st May 2018. The project will include 38 partners from 6 countries under the leadership of Infineon Austria. The 47 million euro project will focus on smart networking of development and production processes for electronic components and systems. It is planned to last for 3 years and focus on 3 areas:
• secure data and knowledge management along the product life cycle
• digital information flow
• innovations in the supply chain
Through the project, over 15,000 jobs will be secured in the companies involved over the medium to long term. iDev40 is organized as a private-public partnership and combines investments from industry, individual countries and ECSEL (Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership) Joint Undertaking. In addition to investments from industry, iDev40 is co-financed by funding from Austria (BMVIT), Belgium, Germany, Italy, Romania, Spain and the ECSEL Joint Undertaking.

PRYSTINE

Fully automated driving is one major enabler to master the Grand Societal Challenges of safe, clean and efficient mobility, and autonomous driving will affect society and most disruptively change the automotive industry as we know it today. Consequently it will also greatly impact the semiconductor industry and open new market opportunities, since semiconductors play an indispensable role as enablers for automated vehicles.

PRYSTINE will realize Fail-operational Urban Surround perceptION (FUSION) which is based on robust Radar and LiDAR sensor fusion and control functions in order to enable safe automated driving in urban and rural environments.

Furthermore, PRYSTINE will strengthen and extend traditional core competencies of the European industry, research organizations, and universities in smart mobility and in particular in the electronic component and systems and cyber-physical systems domain.

PRYSTINE’s well-balanced, value chain oriented consortium, is composed of 60 project partners from 14 different European and non-European countries, including leading car manufacturers, Tier-1 suppliers, engineering and semiconductor suppliers as well as supply chain partners, technology integrators, universities and research institutes. The project will also have significant impact on smart regions. High tech jobs in the area of innovation toward automated driving which are expressed core competencess of the participating countries such as Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.

ARROWHEAD TOOLS

The Arrowhead Tools project aims for digitalisation and automation solutions for the European industry, which will close the gaps that hinder the IT/OT integration by introducing new technologies in an open source platform for the design and run-time engineering of IoT and System of Systems. The project will provide engineering processes, integration platform, tools and tool chains for the cost-efficient development of digitalisation, connectivity and automation system solutions in various fields of application.

Arrowhead Tools is Europe’s largest project for solutions in automation and digitization for the industry. Arrowhead Tools has a budget of EUR 91 million and 81 participants, including 28 universities and research institutes and 53 companies from, among others, the automotive, mining, electronics and software industries.The purpose of the three-year project Arrowhead Tools is to create engineering tools for the next generation of solutions in digitization and automation for the European industry. These tools will bridge the gap that currently prevents a total integration of IT and operational technology, i.e. how the industry works towards the Internet of Things (IoT) and “system of systems”; to build large systems using the Internet of Things
Framework.

This project has received funding from ECSEL Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No 826452 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 the 30 ECSEL Participating States.

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.

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.

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.
