Advanced Connectivity Platform for Vertical Segment (ACTIVE)

Announcement of an open call for recipients of financial support

Project acronym: ACTIVE

Project grant agreement number: EIT 1550

Project full name: Advanced Connectivity Platform for Vertical Segment

Project Advanced Connectivity Platform for Vertical Segment, co‐funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No EIT 1550, foresees as an eligible activity the provision of financial support to third parties, as a means to achieve its own objectives.

The types of activities to perform that qualify for receiving financial support consist in the development of software e firmware parts of a prototype that implements an Avionics IoT (Internet of Things) system. Sensors send measures to the gateway using wireless links and wired links as well. The link between gateway ad un local terminal, i.e., the on‐board terminal, is based on the use of dissimilar technologies WiFi and Ethernet.

Hardware components will be chosen among those available in the consumer market that are of common use for prototyping. The prototype will be used to verify the performance that can be achieved with reference to the following functionalities.

Single gateway working in isolation. WiFi and ZigBee wireless communication between sensors and gateway. Alarm generation in case of failures. Reconstruction of the temporal sequence and order of measures taken by the sensor nodes by implementation of a network synchronization protocol.


Deadline: September 27, 2016

Expected duration of participation: 2 months

Maximum amount of financial support for each third party: € 40,000.00 (EUR forty thousand)

Language in which proposal should be submitted: English
