Do not think about the fastest way to do it, or the cheapest way to do it. Think: what's the most amazing way to do it.

Ashvin aims at enabling the European construction industry to significantly improve its productivity, while reducing cost and ensuring absolutely safe work conditions, by providing a proposal for a European wide digital twin standard, an open source digital twin platform integrating IoT and image technologies, and a set of tools and demonstrated procedures to apply the platform and the standard proven to guarantee specified productivity, cost, and safety improvements. The envisioned platform will provide a digital representation of the construction product at hand and allow to collect real-time digital data before, during, and after production of the product to continuously monitor changes in the environment and within the production process. Based on the platform, Ashvin will develop and demonstrate applications that use the digital twin data. These applications will allow it to fully leverage the potential of the IoT based digital twin platform to reach the expected impacts (better scheduling forecast by 20%; better allocation of resources and optimization of equipment usage; reduced number of accidents; reduction of construction projects). The Ashvin solutions will overcome worker protection and privacy issues that come with the tracking of construction activities, provide means to fuse video data and sensor data, integrate geo-monitoring data, provide multi-physics simulation methods for digital representing the behavior of a product (not only its shape), provide evidence based engineering methods to design for productivity and safety, provide 4D simulation and visualization methods of construction processes, and develop a lean planning process supported by real-time data. All innovations will be demonstrated on 10 real-world construction projects across Europe. The Ashvin consortium combines strong R&I players from 11 EU member states with strong expertise in construction and engineering management, digital twin technology, IoT, and data security / privacy.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 958161.

Energy ECS “Smart and secure energy solutions for future mobility” will focus on the interface of energy and mobility as well as related ICT and electronics. Central for today’s society, these two sectors are facing the restructuring of technology and business value chains that enable the emergence of completely new business models and ecosystems. The project concept builds on six use cases that represent different angles of future mobility and energy; enablers of new logistics modes, energy independent intermodal transport, charging technologies and opportunities, grid stability responding to bi-directional charging, and enablers of safe autonomous driving. The technology developments respond to a long list of MASP major challenges and include e.g. battery charging electronics, grid and sensor power management, energy harvesting, real time location controls and sensors. The R&D will also apply artificial intelligence, machine learning, immersive technologies, IoT, ultra-low power technologies, advanced algorithms and software. All technologies will be designed for cyber-security and reliability. The consortium includes 16 SMEs, 8 LEs and 6 RTOs from 8 countries. The complementary capabilities allow R&D results that lead to new competitiveness of the partners. By 2030, the project is expected to generate increased turnover by over 1 B€, increased market share and/or market leadership for 24 partners, 130+ new collaborations, 300+ new jobs and 10+ M€ of additional investments. The consortium with half of the partners being SMEs forms a squad of challengers, agile and hungry to grasp the huge business opportunities that emerge in the convergence of the two sectors, supported by large companies fostering the immediate business volume and carefully selected RTOs. The consortium nucleates a new ecosystem of strongly interlinked value networks, the impact towards European competitiveness, growth and innovation capabilities ranging far beyond 2030.

This project has received funding from the ECSEL Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No 101007247. The JU receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and Finland, Austria, Germany, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Sweden, and Switzerland.

The broad IMOCO4.E challenge is to bridge the gap between the latest research results and best industrial practice in digital twins, AI and advanced mechatronic motion control systems. IMOCO4.E strive to create solid and unimpeachable knowledge for optimizing machines and production lines over their whole lifecycle. Software and Hardware building blocks (BBs), edge-to-cloud distributed and featuring standardized interfaces, will be developed to deliver a complete IMOCO4.E reference framework. These building blocks will embed the latest thinking from the academic community and, moreover, can be enhanced in future with new research results. The project will deliver a flexible, scalable, future-proofed and fully functional product architecture to be exploited in industry in high-performance motion control applications with several overlaps to health, mobility and supply chain management domains.
