.WELLS by RE:Lab + Mipel – The exhibition at a glance

“The fishes came staring and gaping towards me, and into me and through me. I never imagined such fishes before.…

“The fishes came staring and gaping towards me, and into me and through me. I never imagined such fishes before. They had lines of fire along the sides of them as though they had been outlined with a luminous pencil.”

In H.G. Wells’ story “The remarkable case of Davidson’s eyes” the protagonist temporarily loses his sight due to an accident but acquires the ability to see events occurring in places far fro­m him.

The .WELLS project comes from this literary solicitation. It aims to enable visitors from other parts of the world to take part in an event with the eyes of those who are there.

By using an application, the virtual visitor sends to the operator on site indications on how he would like to visit the event. The operator wears a camera and a headset and transmits what he sees and hears to the user from a distance.

The possibilities of personalizing the “remote” visit are many: from the choice of language to the paths, from the approach to the booth to the contact with the salesman, from the appointment with a person in charge to the creation of a photographic book of the event.

.WELLS is a project born from the collaboration between RE:Lab, a company operating in the field of interaction between technologies and users (www.re-lab.it) and MIPEL, an event dedicated to leather goods and fashion accessories that welcomes 10,000 visitors per year.

The service will be provided by RE:Lab starting from the MIPEL fair in February 2019.

From January 2019 more information and the possibility to book it will be available.

On the 1st of May 2018 a new research and innovation project PRYSTINE started, co-funded by the ECSEL JU and the national governments of the ECSEL member states.

RE:Lab is a member of this consortium, with the ambition to realize Fail-operational Urban Surround perceptION (FUSION) which is based on robust Radar and LiDAR sensor fusion and control functions in order to enable safe automated driving in urban and rural environments.

This project will strengthen and extend traditional core competencies of the European industry, research and universities in smart mobility and in particular the electronic component and systems and cyber-physical systems domains.

Full information about this project can be found on the project’s website www.prystine.eu

PRYSTINE’s high-level goals are:

1. Enhanced reliability and performance, reduced cost and power of FUSION components

2. Dependable embedded control by co-integration of signal processing and AI approaches for FUSION

3. Optimized E/E architecture enabling FUSION-based automated vehicles

4. Fail-operational systems for urban and rural environments based on FUSION

PRYSTINE will deliver (a) fail-operational sensor-fusion framework on component level, (b) dependable embedded E/E architectures, and (c) safety compliant integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches for object recognition, scene understanding, and decision making within automotive applications. The resulting reference FUSION hardware/software architectures and reliable components for autonomous systems will be validated in in 22 industrial demonstrators, such as:

1. Fail-operational autonomous driving platform

2. An electrical and highly automated commercial truck equipped with new FUSION components (such as LiDAR, Radar, camera systems, safety controllers) for advanced perception

3. Highly connected passenger car anticipating traffic situations

4. Sensor fusion in human-machine interfaces for fail-operational control transition in highly automated vehicles

PRYSTINE’s well-balanced, value chain oriented consortium, is composed of 60 project partners from 14 different European and non-European countries, including leading automotive OEMs, semiconductor companies, technology partners, and research institutes.

After three years of valuable efforts across disciplines and countries, the RESOLVE project is now coming to an end.

Different countries, languages, nationalities and fields of expertise, have hardly worked together to produce relevant results which have been proudly shown to the world in several occasions over the last months: just to mention some, the ACEM Conference on Sustainable Motorcycling In Europe, the TRA conference 2018 in Vienna, the RESOLVE final event.

In particular, the two vehicle prototypes developed in the project and presented at events have allowed people to touch RESOLVE results. Moreover, an additional three-wheeler demonstrator named D3 has been presented, derived from D1.
