This document contains the description of all dissemination and communication activities performed within SILENSE project during its whole duration.
The main chapters of this document relates to:
This document provides, as a first result of the standardization activity, a collection of applicable standards that shall be taken into account in the architectural framework and design choices for the SILENSE project. This is done in order to find a common solution to assure a smooth and homogeneous way to assure a very high level of interoperability (or at least interworking) among the different systems. The deliverable presents a first selection of standards under developments that could be of interest for the Project standardization activities.
This report describes the final status of the demonstrator prototypes which have been successfully designed and developed in the SILENSE project, based on the use cases and specifications defined. The report includes a summary of all the activities developed for each of the demonstrators, including the design of hardware and software solutions, various stages of prototyping and integration and validation activities at each foreseen validation scenario.
This deliverable will be available after Approval by the Commision.
Within the framework of the ECSEL project SILENSE, several ultrasound transducer technol-ogies are pushed forward, ahead of the state-of-the-art. This includes novel microphones that are also sensitive in the ultrasound domain, new piezoelectric materials, and large arrays of ultra-sound transducers on glass or flexible substrates. Several of these technologies are used in SILENSE demonstrators, while other technologies will be available for post-SILENSE demon-strators and even products. The status of the different technologies is described in this public deliverable.
This newsletter focuses on wearable systems developed with ultrasound technology. First is complex smart acoustic wearable system for smart retail, second is motion tracking for sports and rehabilitation and last is multi-purpose (arm) gesture recognition. The newsletter can be downloaded here.
This newsletter summarizes our work on the project in its second half and also presents you the application of ultrasound technology in the field of smart home and buildings . The newsletter can be downloaded here.
This document describes design and simulation environment optimized for microphone transduces. It enables evaluation of the system specification, such as SNR, dynamic range and harmonic distortion. The main principles as well as guidelines on how to use developed design and simulation environment is provided.
This document is the presentation of the test and validation methodology and objectives for each of the blocks/systems developed in the scope of the SILENSE project.
This report gives a general overview of all hardware IP development planned for Silense. IPs described in this deliverable constitute the electronics hardware development needed for realizing final project demonstrators.
Dissemination and communication activities are key enablers to promote the SILENSE project to the wider public as well as to attract the attention of the scientific & the industrial stakeholder community.

This newsletter shortly informs about project progress at the end of first year. It briefly describes elaborated use cases and presents two of them which focuses on underwater solutions. The newsletter can be downloaded here.
Preliminary set of use cases for the innovative ultrasound technologies has been collected and elaborated on.At the end of the first project year these use cases have been revised considering the work that has been done so far as the feasibility and viability has been checked in the mean time. The result of this revision, including also some new application areas and use cases, is presented in this document as the final application analysis and use case definition.
A dedicated literature study on the available reports on the safety aspects, exposure limits, effects on humans and animals, existing standards and regulations of airborne and liquid-borne ultrasound has been performed.
This public deliverable report summarizes the initial ideas and presents useful channels for dissemination of SILENSE project results. It also set up policies and rules for dissemination activities and provides the first estimation of volume of planned activities. Also, communication activities are described and specific procedures for each communication channel is adopted.
The deliverable is the first outcome of WP 1 Task 1.1 of Silense. The aim of the deliverable is to give a preliminary description of the targeted application domains and specific use cases towards which the Silense development and demonstrator efforts will be focused.
