TSSG participates in translantic ICT forum workshop

Waterford Institute of Technology’s  TSSG participates in transatlantic ICT forum workshop held in Brussels on 16 -17 November, 2016.

The Transatlantic ICT Forum was established as a platform to support policy debate and provide opinions and recommendations to transatlantic dialogues for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) Research & Innovation (R&I) cooperation between Europe and North America.

The Forum focused on three key thematic areas in ICT – funding mechanisms for ICT R&I, ICT policy and regulations, cyber-security composed by European, US and Canada’s experts in the respective subject matters.

The two-day event comprised of a combination of informative panel sessions and interactive breakout sessions, which were both designed to spark discussions and action plans in relation to transatlantic collaborations in ICT research and innovation. The goal was to create a dynamic environment for networking, business dialogues and policy debates between both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Forum provided opportunities for ICT stakeholders to extend their reach and connections beyond their borders.

AquaSmart Analysis Training Programme Workshop

aquaThe Horizon 2020 AquaSmart project has involved working with an extensive number of fish farmers in the aquaculture industry to understand and develop a data analytics platform that can be used to deliver real results to the sector.

In doing so the AQUASMART project is now in a position to help Aquaculture companies transform their raw data into knowledge via accurate business-driven analytical models, in a seamless and efficient process.

Through this, fish farmers are able to use this knowledge to dramatically improve their production performance. In order to assist with this undertaking, the project team have also created the ‘AquaSmart Analysis Training Programme’, which offers services, activities and materials, in order to deliver the skills and competences to run the software, and based on the new knowledge acquired from data analytics performed, to facilitate new business incomes.

As such, we are eagerly anticipating the running of our first AquaSmart Analysis Training Programme workshop, which is scheduled for December 16th, 2016, in Dublin, Ireland. This training workshop has been set up to offer industry participants with a key opportunity to meet and engage with the AquaSmart team, and will be used for the industry to get hands on participation of the AquaSmart platform, as well as education in the key concepts and practical hints for its adoption.

Close industry liaison has been a key characteristic of the AquaSmart project, to ensure that the AquaSmart platform is continually focussed on the day-to-day production needs of the aquaculture sector. User feedback and valued industry validation has guided the development of the platform and in turn is now re-invested into subsequent software releases as we move from a research project into the commercial domain.

TSSG attending 5th International Cycling Conference, Bologna, Italy.

Intelligent and Safer Junctions, Supporting Safer Cycling presented at the 5th International Cycling Conference

safer cycleFrom 2 – 4 of November ICSC2016 took place in the medieval city of Bologna Italy.  Researchers and experts in the area of cycling safety from all over the globe attended the conference, with some coming from as far a field as New Zealand and Canada.  Some of the topics covered in the conference ranged in genre from the psychology of cyclists to technological solutions like active safety systems.

TSSG ‘s  David Ryan presented Intelligent and Safer Junctions, Supporting Safer Cycling paper in the Active Safety Systems session on behalf of the TSSG team who wrote the paper which was based on a safety system that alerts motorists on the presence of a cyclist at a roundabout junction.

Overall, the feedback on presentation was very positive with the main comments complimenting the low cost, easy deployable nature of the system.  It was also many researchers first time to hear of TSSG and they were very complimentary on the range of projects undertaken by the organisation and also the ability of TSSG  to attract talented researchers from all over the globe.

To summarise, it seems that the Cycling Safety research area is very active and judging from the head of unit in the H2020 Transport group Marcel Romerts’ comments in his keynote speech the focus from an EU level remains on making cycling safer for all.
