Based on user needs and industry skills, the evolution of customized solutions and the establishment of innovative services is accomplished through project activities. Focusing on various thematic areas, relevant information on the project activities is provided below.

Tourism Impact Monitoring Service

Status date: 05 March 2018

Realise and monitor sustainable tourist destinations using Earth observation satellites.

Nostalgeo

Status date: 05 March 2018

Nostalgeo is a location-based platform to preserve & experience the streetview of the past. The interactive tool allows users to explore, compare, upload & fit old streetviews in relation to the streetview of today. A location-based API service allows other users/developers to access historical streetview data over whole Europe and integrate it into their own (touristic) applications.

WJETSS

Status date: 22 February 2018

WJETSS enables transportable, consumable and perishable “Things” or dangerous cargo (IoT) to “tell” their Whole-Journey Experience (WJE) from production to consumption, through sensor data monitoring and collection (“SenSourcing”) from all freight legs.

SatBAMS

Status date: 21 February 2018

The Battery Array Management System automates the storage and distribution of power. Unlike existing battery arrays, the BAMS will maintain better Security of Supply, ensure that the reserve does not loose capacity over time and extends operation of batteries by 50%-100%.

High Precision Navigation System for Trucks

Status date: 20 February 2018

Autonomous driving and reverse parking of truck-trailer combinations are very attractive for the transportation and logistics industry to reduce the transportation costs and to avoid accidents. 

Shrub Mapping

Status date: 19 February 2018

The space data based service seeks to detect the shrub clearing needs for young conifer forests in the borealis zone. The service could have significant positive financial, sociological and ecological benefits thanks to improved and optimised forest management.

WILDWEGO

Status date: 16 February 2018

WILDWEGO (in the WILDLERNESS WE GO)is an innovative Augmented Reality (AR) ecotourism game fostering biodiversity conservation in wilderness areas by tourists “on the go” in parks and by their family, friends and social networks contacts “remotely”.

MSW-Service

Status date: 16 February 2018

We study the feasibility of services that combine, High resolution now-casts of strong wind shear, turbulence and other severe weather phenomena, and information of large flocks of birds, and Real-time information and forecasts of the global spatial distribution of space weather effects, with accurate real time position information of aircraft, to make aviation more safe, effective and economic, with less carbon footprint.

Profumo

Status date: 15 February 2018

Profumo proposes novel weather-based services for the Mediterranean navigation with the aim of granting fuel saving, pollution reduction and improving safety for passengers, crew, goods and ships’ instruments.The idea is to establish a cooperative schema (between commercial vessels) where meteo-marine data is collected from standard and non-standard on-board instrumentation.Acquired data is used in the Profumo service center to produce reliable high resolution meteo-marine forecasts and nearly real time information, allowing the provision of helpful route optimization and navigation services also in a complex and constrained basin as the Mediterranean one.To satisfy the demand of commercial customers, Profumo has conceived innovative services expressly for the middle short routes.Dynamic Routing at Mediterranean scale.The service provides pre-voyage route planning and updated information for optimal re-routing for vessels. This is possible due to the Profumo’s integrated approach involving weather observations, forecasts and optimal route computation through the modeling of ship’s characteristics, for predicting the vessel’s specific response to weather phenomena, in terms of seakeeping and fuel consumption.Moreover, the system provides frequently refreshed meteo information allowing in-route corrections, therefore optimizing speed and course.Navigation assistanceBy using the navigation assistance service, the crew is fully supported in the route decision and planning. Profumo, integrating real time meteo-marine conditions, increases the safety and the navigation comfort through the application of the most recent guidelines for avoiding dangerous situations in adverse weather and sea conditions.High definition weather productsThanks to the cooperative meteo data injected in high resolution, local-scale forecasts, Profumo provides detailed predictions with a native (not rescaled) resolution of few kilometers.

DFMS4i

Status date: 14 February 2018

The project investigates how drought and flood prediction and monitoring services derived from space-based Earth Observation data, and in particular data from the Sentinel satellites, might support the uptake of agriculture insurance in developing countries, with an initial focus on Uganda.
