September 2017: Feron Technologies PC proposal on V2X communications solutions has been accepted for funding in Stage 1 Fed4FirePlus Open Call 2. Project has already begun!
Fed4FIRE+ building on the success of its predecessor, aims at boosting experimentation-driven research at a European level, by offering a set of open, accessible and reliable facilities supporting a wide variety of different Internet research communities, providing simple, efficient, and cost effective experimental processes, guaranteeing increased trustworthiness of facilities, and supporting the sustainability of the experimental infrastructures.
Project “FIVE” implemented by Feron Technologies was accepted in Stage 1 of Open Call. FIVE aims at the experimental evaluation and demonstration of an end-to-end solution prototype for the vehicular communications vertical domain. In the context of FIVE, we plan to integrate our own V2X software radio modem prototype with a higher-layer ITS protocol stack, and eventually demonstrate/validate a complete end-to-end and real-time V2X communication application in real-world conditions. Further information for the project and the open calls may be found in https://www.fed4fire.eu/ and https://www.fed4fire.eu/opencalls/
July 2017: Feron Technologies PC is further advancing its IoT capabilities through PARROT Project!
The Project was accepted for funding within the context of RAWFIE Project 2nd Open Call for Proposals. RAWFIE Project is an initiative funded by European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Program with the following key priorities:
- Development of a strategic experimental infrastructure for mobile IoT;
- Support of the entire experiment lifecycle with fully detailed, controllable and replicable conditions;
- Integration of Cloud resources and networking facilities provided by the Europe’s Research and Education Network (GEANT);
- Provision of a proof of concept for extending the IoT paradigm in the world of autonomous mobile devices and remote piloted systems with real time characteristics; and
- Implementation of a reusable architecture that facilitates the testing of hardware, protocols, algorithms, middleware and application protocols.
In this wider context, main objective of PARROT Project is to integrate & deploy a H/W and S/W platform prototype tailored to end-to-end public safety operations support for emergency/ critical incidents occurring in remote areas.
