Addressing sustainable city logistics by tackling the negative externalities caused by freight distribution. The NIMBLE project addresses the lack of logistics solutions oriented towards small stores (comprising 20% of all goods distributed in a city like Barcelona) by defining a new, more efficient and seamless model of urban goods distribution. NIMBLE’s model is based on: Simplifying last-mile distribution by centralising deliveries at smart lockers, thereby reducing route complexity, operating time and, the impact of delivery vehicles on urban traffic. Redistributing delivery times to off-peak hours and night times to ease traffic congestion. Deploying a last-mile distribution [...]

Analysis of the exposition on the foreign information manipulation and interference (FIMI). The ATHENA project contributes to Europe’s defence against foreign information manipulation and interference (FIMI) by examining at least 30 manifestations in case studies, including the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) used by attackers. ATHENA analyses the behavioural and societal effects of FIMI and assesses and develops countermeasures against the TTP. Moreover, the initiative collects and processes FIMI data and develops a knowledge graph, a disinformation analysis toolbox and dashboard showing the prevalence of FIMI and the countermeasures in action. Throughout the project, ATHENA conducts [...]



Experimental development of a novel collective intelligence platform for cybersecurity. The CybersecBRAIN project addresses the experimental development of the application of algorithms, techniques and technologies based on artificial intelligence for security management. CybersecBRAIN focuses on two areas of innovation through the application of solutions based on artificial intelligence: automatic learning in certain tasks of a SOC (Security Operations Center) and the application of collective intelligence through federated learning algorithms or swarm learning. Currently, the management of SOC activity is a question that MSSPs (Managed Security Service Providers, systems that can collect cybersecurity data from different organizations) [...]

Smart City Manager


Smart mobility and traffic analysis and control system. The Smart City Manager responds to the current mobility and sustainability challenges of smart cities. The goal is for smart cities to have the most advanced tools with big data technology, blockchain and artificial intelligence algorithms to predict the mobility of vehicles, detect anomalous situations, make decisions and evaluate their impact within 'a secure environment and aligned with data protection law. To do this, Internet of Things data from traffic cameras will be anonymized, mined and enriched with other context information. Eurecat participates in the Smart City Manager [...]



High-performance sensor for an industry 4.0 with zero manufacturing defects. The VISIRIA4.0 project develops vision technology to establish a constant line of information that allows any industry to improve its production processes, thus reaching manufacturing with zero defects. VISIRIA4.0 develops a new high-performance sensor that works in the spectrum range 400 – 1700 nm. In this sense, the application of photonic technology will facilitate the automation of error detection in a non-intrusive and continuous way. This technology will be validated in two relevant industries such as textile knitting and plastic injection by silicone moulds. VISIRIA 4.0 [...]
