Scientific Projects


1 Mar 2012– 28 Feb 2014

The integrated4D (i4D) project of MTA SZTAKI is a joint mission of the Distributed Events Analysis Research Laboratory (DEVA) and the Geometric Modelling and Computer Vision Laboratory (GMCV). The main objective of the project is to design and implement a pilot system for the reconstruction and visualisation of complex spatio-temporal scenes by integrating two different types of data: outdoor 4D point cloud sequences recorded by a car-mounted Velodyne HDL-64E LIDAR sensor, and 4D models of moving actors obtained in an indoor 4D Reconstruction Studio.

1 Feb 2012– 31 Jan 2015

The INARMERA-ICT Project aims at reinforcing the cooperation capacity of the Institute for Informatics and Automation Problems (IIAP) of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia by providing the possibilities to improve its research activities in the areas of thematic priorities of the 7th Framework Programme.

Earth observation is a growing field of interest in various application areas, such as monitoring agricultural activity, detection of pollution and environmental crimes, management of urban area expansion, crisis management, including civil protection, or homeland security. However, the evaluation of the collected remotely needs exhausting human intervention up to now due to the rich and continuously augmenting content and various aspects of assessment. For this reason, necessity of automated recognition problems in remote sensing is raised by both national and international demands.

1 Jan 2012– 31 Dec 2014

The objective of the Chaoster project is to create a collaborative software system for crisis management on mobile platform using new paradigms. We are also going to research and develop the enabling technologies and algorithms, in the fields of networking, communication, group decision, context identification and mobile, semantic and cooperative software. The project aims to have an interdisciplinary approach.

1 Jan 2012– 30 Jun 2015

RLW Navigator aims to develop an innovative Process Navigator to configure, integrate, test and validate applications of Remote Laser Welding (RLW) in automotive assembly addressing today’s critical needs for frequently changing operating conditions and product-mix provisions. Thus, RLW Navigator will crucially serve as an enabler for future energy efficient smart factories. Our Laboratory is responsible for configuring RLW robotic cells, generating optimal off-line robot programs, as well as simulating the operation of cells.

The lean usage of resources and improvement of energy efficiency have been receiving increasing attention in recent years, and even the less environmentally conscious will have to change their consumption practices due to rising energy prices as well as more and more strict regulations. In some cases, such adaptation may require in-depth expert knowledge and thorough planning, implementation and operation procedures, as is the case with the energy management of large public buildings.

1 Dec 2011– 30 Nov 2013

Due to sharp increase in the number of video recording devices, the digital multimedia can be produced at many sources and can be injected at most different places into a fully distributed and multimodal environment. The large amount of multimedia data is produced and consumed in most different quality, with most different aims and requirements. The aim of the project is apply formal and combinatorial optimisation methods in the development of novel distribution layer for multimedia delivery considering the above video usage pattern.

1 Nov 2011– 31 Oct 2014

The All-Electric Aircraft is a major target for the next generation of aircraft to lower consumption of non-propulsive power and thus fuel burn. To eliminate hydraulic circuits, pumps and reservoirs, Electro Mechanical Actuators (EMA) are mandatory but now need to meet cost, reliability and weight requirements from the airframers.

15 Oct 2011– 31 Oct 2014

The aim of the Networking Activities from the agINFRA project is to foster a culture of cooperation between the agricultural scientific communities benefiting from research infrastructures and help develop a more efficient and attractive European Research Area.

1 Oct 2011– 30 Sep 2014

The SCI-BUS project aims to ease the life of e-Scientists by creating a new science gateway customisation methodology based on the generic-purpose gUSE/WS-PGRADE portal family. The customised science gateways will enable scientists to focus on their work and exploit resources of main Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs) without the need to deal with the underlying infrastructures' details.
