  • BUS-KI-ERXETAI:  Advanced system for dynamic information and guidance services to public transport passengers
   

Project Title 

BUS-KI-ERXETAI:  Advanced system for dynamic information and guidance services to public transport passengers

Program

National Operational Programme, NSRF 2007-2013, National Range Action “SME Support”, Action “SME Support for RTD Activities”

Start Date

1/1/2011

Project Duration

24 months

Project Summary

The objective of the system “BUS-KI-ERXETAI” is to offer a functional and efficient tool for the optimization of the locomotions in the city using the Means of Mass Transport (ΜΜT). Its basic characteristic and advantage are the use of data of real time relatively so much with the location of the user/passenger, as well as with the location and speed of the vehicles, via communication with the system of management of fleet. The proposed system includes i) a functional interface with the user/passenger, ii) a search engine of most optimal way with the use of ΜΜT, iii) an interface with the platform of control and monitoring of vehicles so that data for their movement are collected in real time, and iv) the proportional network infrastructure for the communication. Via the interface in his mobile terminal, the user may receive in real time various information on bus lines, stops and vehicles such that he programs better his locomotion. If the user does not allocate such terminals with GPS reception, or wishes to check the possibility of departure from another point, he should then provide also the point of departure of his way. With such a terminal, the guidance of the user can be in detail and continuous, with charts, written or phonetic instruction messages, etc. At the same time, re-calculation of the way is possible if the user deviates for any reason of his course or in case of unexpected facts, e.g. an accident. Also, there will be other choices such as in how much time a bus passes from a given location, the forecasted time of arrival in the destination, etc. Accent will be given on the adaptability of the “BUS-KI-ERXETAI” system with the use of personalized information for each user, which, apart from each location, can include his preferences in ΜΜT, his favourite ways, his natural situation, his age, etc.

Started

September 2006

Duration

18 months

Brief Description

The goal of the project is the creation of innovative diagnostic methodologies for the definition of biological indices related to the prognosis, timely diagnosis and observation of cervical and breast  cancer.

The final deliverable of the project is the creation of a hierarchical model that will permit the rationalistic selection of women with preneoplasmatic alterations which require systematic supervision or even invasive treatment.

Space Hellas participates in the project as the technology provider on topics related to tele-education, certification, patient databases, and data processing in an integrated manner. Space Hellas is workpackage leader and responsible for the design and development of an Informatics  System that is directly linked with the Cytological Diagnostic Lab. All the diagnosed cases are recorded in a Database and in such a way that conclusions can be easily deduced. Those cases that are identified as significant - even from the diagnosis stage - for educational purposes,  can be characterised as educational content and can be used directly for this purpose. The result is an extensible Informatics System (IS) adapted to the requirements of the Diagnostic Lab continuously updated with the most up-to-date diagnosis/educational material. The IS permits both synchronous and asynchronous tele-education of doctors and medical students as well as their continuous evaluation.

  • Development of a reliable hybrid FSO/MMW system for the support of broadband communication services
   

Project title

Development of a reliable hybrid FSO/MMW system for the support of broadband communication services

Program

3rd CSF (Funded by GSRT)

Started

June 2006

Duration

18 months

Brief Description

The aim of the project is to develop a hybrid free-space optical/millimetre-wave system for broadband communication services (~1Gbps). Comparing such a system with a traditional optical or millimetre wave system, the hybrid system is expected to provide higher reliability and performance under almost every possible weather condition. This type of system could support the provisioning of real-time broadband services to the end-users.

In the course of the project, a study of the hybrid system availability will be performed in the urban environment of Athens which is characterized by high temperatures, high temperature variability, increased degree of pollution and humidity. Such studies have not taken place in the Greek region or in other areas around Europe with similar climatic conditions, and therefore the activities of the project aim at the acquisition of new knowledge towards the implementation of such systems.

Moreover, the project will experiment with both real- and non-real-time broadband communication services aiming at an in-depth investigation of the effect of the hybrid system onto the service reliability, specifically in cases where there are abrupt changes of the data rate during the switchover from the optical to the millimetre wave system, considering also the respective delay.

The main activities of the project comprise the following:

1. Design of a robust hybrid link, appropriate for reliable transmission of high bit-rate traffic.

2. Execution of extensive measurements regarding the availability of the optical and millimeter wave links at the urban environment of Athens, and calculation of their reliability

3. Tests and demonstration of various services that exhibit increased robustness during the switch over between the two systems (optical and millimeter wave)

4. Engagement of experiments at the hybrid link in order to verify the degree in which the aforementioned services correspond to the users’ requirements.

  • OMTS – Open Multimodal Tracking and Tracing Service for Transport
   

Project title

OMTS – Open Multimodal Tracking and Tracing Service for Transport

Program

3rd CSF

Started

01-10-03

Duration

24 months 

Brief Description

The objective of the project is to develop and demonstrate of an open multimodal tracking and tracing service relating to commercial goods in the entire chain of combined transport. The aim is to better supervise and improve speed and reliability of the combined transport means, by way of:

  • discouraging idle time at terminal stations and encouraging increase in their productivity
  • boosting security measures for goods, transport units and loading units along the entire chain of combined transports
  • promotion of interoperability among the management systems and company scheduling
  • incorporation of the chain supply to system administration
  • better information and services to the customers

The OMTS is based on an infrastructure which combines a series of technologies (RFID, GPS, mobile servers, portals, etc.). Via an Internet portal information can be obtained about the identity and location (perhaps more information) of transportation units. This information shall be distributed to end users. Specifically, the support infrastructure will be able to establish and register the geographical position of a specific object (tracking) and/or find and restructure the transportation history of a specific object (tracing) even if the mode of transport has changed or a third mode is in progress. The architecture of this service will be designed to cover the largest number of users, in response to the increasing requirements of large and small enterprises. Naturally, one has to take into account that the parties involved in the transportation chain and logistics have diverse levels of interest (e.g. container / vehicles for fleet management, mail/courier units and, possibly tracking of transport means by manufacturers and consumers). The support system will comply, where possible with existing standards currently under development in Europe (e.g. CEN/ISSS).

  • EQUAL : Innovative life-long learning techniques – the model of work rotation
   

Project title

EQUAL – Innovative life-long learning techniques – the model of work rotations

Program

Ministry of Labour & Social Insurance – EQUAL

Started

01-07-03

Duration

18 months

Brief Description

The project concerns a series of actions that promote life-long learning and work practices that promote inclusion. These are designed to initially address companies and employees – with the former encouraging similar policies. Secondarily, these actions address the unemployed and social partners that benefit from business growth and the dissemination of policies about life-long learning.

In this context, the priority of the Developmental Partnership (DP) of the EQUAL is to fight inequalities and discrimination in the labour market with reference to people who are not formally qualified/skilled, in order to help them adjust to the fast pace of modernization of production. Given that inequalities exacerbate from lack of culture on the part of enterprise, given that they are reluctant in making investments in the training of their personnel, the project will focus on encouraging enterprises to adopt mechanism for lifelong learning by making use of various technologies. As regards fields of implementation, the project initially concerns three strands of production of critical significance to the Greek economy and labor market. These strands are: tourism (hotels), the food industry and informatics. These strands in aggregate capture the largest share in the GDP and foster economic growth. Actions will be geographically decentralized, taking place in Athens, Thessaloniki and Crete.

Space Hellas' participation in the project involves:

  • the creation of distance learning tools
  • a pilot application of tele-education tools for the training of medium level partner employees at risk of losing their work
  • organisation and pilot application of an Observatory and Regional Nodes for lifelong learning.
