The design and prototyping of several smart flying and ground devices have been performed in the first year of Ingenious. One of the INGENIOUS main aims is to provide first responders with new instruments to enable improved scene perception, indoor/outdoor mapping, accurate self-localization in indoor environments, as well as data communication with other devices. For this purpose INGENIOUS partners from SINTEF, FOI and DLR are developing three drones (MIN, MAX and MACS) and a self-localization tool (IPS). All these devices are connected with the field communication system.
The “smart” first responders concept is one of the key pillars of the INGENIOUS technical offering as part of its cost-effective, modular, and highly reliable Next Generation Integrated Toolkit (NGIT) for collaborative response, at the service of the first responders, enhancing their protection and augmenting their operational capacities.
Our partners from ISAR Germany are supporting Armenia in the fight against COVID-19 crisis jointly with EU
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed great stress on healthcare systems of many countries around the world, including Armenia. Armenia has many active COVID-19 cases that the country’s healthcare system has been overwhelmed.
INGENIOUS has taken part in the fruitful discussions on new technologies for First Responders & their needs to conduct their response duties effectively. Over 100 participants gathered in Brussels to discuss the first responders’ needs and explore new markets to deliver first-class security products. The “Industry Day” was organised by IFAFRI and took place on 15 October 2019 in the Commission’s premises located in Brussels, Belgium.
The brand new INGENIOUS_EU project, funded by the European Union and the Republic of Korea under the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program, was officially launched in September 2019 and will run for three years.
