Fruitfull partner meeting in Oslo
During the last week of May our SILENSE partnership had already its fifth meeting; this time hosted by our Norwegian partner SINTEF at the premises of Meet Ullevaal with lovely view on National Football Stadium in Oslo. Almost all partners joined the meeting and carried out multiple presentations on results of their work after two years of the project. The main topics of the two-day meeting were: overview of each work package, current status of demonstrators, standardization overview and notes on dissemination & exploitation.
Project meeting in Oslo
From 27th to 29th May 2019 the SILENSE partnership will have its next meeting, organized by our Norway partner SINTEF with the support by another parther Elliptic Labs. It will be a great opportunity to bring all partners together again since last meeting. More information for consorcium partners can be found here.
SILENSE at EFECS Lisbon
In the frame of European Forum for Electronic Components and Systems (EFECS), which was held in Lisbon this year, the project representatives from BUT, NXP and Infineon actively promoted the SILENSE project during the exhibition of ECSEL, AENEAS and EUREKA projects. Our project booth was attended by numerous visitors, representing other projects, research organizations and policy makers from all over the Europe. These visitor were interested especially in the project's ambitions, actual intentions and the results achieved so far.
Successful partner meeting in London
Our SILENSE partnership had its fourth meeting; this time hosted by our British partner Speedo in their London office. With some exceptions all partner joined the meeting and carried out a lively debate on the latest developments of their technologies and respective integration into all the demonstrators. These are the cornerstone of the project and will need the full support of all work packages. It is equally important that the demonstrators clearly indicate their requirements to advance jointly and swiftly.

SILENSE at the ‘ECSEL in Germany’ Congress
After its first four years of H2020 over thirty initiatives and numerous experts met at the ‘ECSEL in Germany’ Congress. It took place in Dresden on 5th and 6th September 2018. This platform provided an excellent opportunity to exchange experience, analyse technology trends as well as debate the future of the European research programme beyond 2020 and the input of German partners in shaping in.
Ultrasound channel sounding experiments in TNO
For the development of the Smart Acoustic Wearable System demonstrator, channel soundings and ambient noise measurements were performed recently at the TNO premises in The Hague with assistance from NXP and Elliptic Labs. During this channel sounding campaign, ultrasound probe signals in two bandwidths (2-36kHz & 18-24kHz) were transmitted using a tweeter and received by six microphones.
Project meeting in London
On 18th and 19th October 2018 the SILENSE partnership will have its fourth meeting, hosted by our UK partner Speedo. It will be a great opportunity to bring all partners together again since review meeting. More information for consorcium partners can be found here.
