Vicomtech-IK4 participates at the Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress in Montréal, Canada

Like in past editions, Vicomtech-IK4 participated this year too at the ITS World Congress held in Montréal, Canada, from 29th October to 2nd November.

Dr. Oihana Otaegui, Head of ITS and Engineering department, participated in the Advisory Board session of the European VI-DAS project, and as speaker on session “Benefit of IoT and BigData for Automated Driving and User Trust Challenge”.

The centre also exposed developments carried out within InLane and Cloud-LSVA European projects at ERTICO’s stand.

The aim of InLane is to develop a new generation of low-cost navigation apps, and to provide with precise step-by-step information, through the fusion of satellite navigation and artificial vision technology.

Cloud-LSVA focuses in the creation of Big Data technologies to solve the problem of the lack of software tools and hardware platforms for the annotation of video datasets on a petabyte scale, centred on the automation industry.

ITS World Congress meets every year all the world leaders on intelligent transportation to show and evaluate latest innovative concepts, active prototypes, and in vivo systems. Next year, ITS will be held in Copenhagen (Denmark) from 17th to 21st September 2018.

SEPTEMBER 2016

Vicomtech-IK4 will participate in the Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress that will be held in Melbourne, Australia, from 10th to 14th of October

As in previous editions, Vicomtech-IK4 will participate in the 23rd ITS World Congress that will be held in Melbourne, Australia, from 10th to 14th of October 2016.

In this occasion, the Centre will be present as part of Ertico’s booth (#2913) showcasing the developments achieved within the framework of the inLane project. Vicomtech-IK4 is the coordinator of this European project and the inLane consortium is formed by leading Automotion and Satellite Navigation entities.

Furthermore, another European project led by the Centre, Cloud-LSVA, will be presented as part of a special interest session about the goals of the project. The session “Exploiting cloud and big data technologies for ADAS and Digital Cartography” will take place on 14th October at 1 p.m. Dr. Oihana Otaegui, Director of the ITS and Engineering Department, and Dr. Marcos Nieto, Principal Researcher in Vicomtech-IK4, will some of the speakers in the session (SIS72).

Vicomtech-IK4 through these European projects will have a significant participation in this annual world congress, which is the most important event in the filed of Intelligent Transport Systems.

OCTOBER 2015

Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress
(Bordeaux, October 5-9, 2015)

Vicomtech-IK4 has taken part at the ITS World Congress with a booth and 4 scientific presentations. The ITS World Congress is an annual international conference focused on Intelligent Transport Systems. Each year, the World Congress is hosted in one of three regions; Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas. This year it has taken place in Bordeaux from 5th to 9th of October and it has brought together 10,000 international stakeholders from the ITS industry: ITS experts, professionals, public and private sector leaders, academics, researchers, engineers and students.

This year our Viulib members have shown several real time demonstrations, including a simulator and 3 scientific papers’ presentations with the following titles: "Embedded platforms for computer vision-based advanced driver assistance systems: a survey", "Semi-automatic tracking-based labeling tool for automotive applications" and "Robust real-time driver drowsiness detection system for heterogeneous lightining conditions" by Dr. Marcos Nieto and another presentation by Seán Gaines, Director of International Projects in Vicomtech-IK4, in the workshop organised by Big Data Europe "BigDataEurope Workshop on Smart, Green and Integrated Transport" focused on the management of the data generated by the vehicle sensors.

JUNE 2014

VIULIB was presented at the Intel booth during the TIZEN Developer Conference

Vicomtech-IK4 has been invited by Intel to participate in its booth at the TIZEN Developer Annual Conference held between 2nd and 4th June 2014 in San Francisco.

The Viulib team has showcased the services and capacities of Viulib (www.viulib.org) embedded in Tizen IVI, testing its potential across different domains, such as the car industry or the entertainment sector. Different kind of computer vision based applications were exhibited such as the face and body tracking application.

The aim of the conference is to offer a meeting point for the TIZEN developer community and to launch the new Samsung mobile phone which makes use of the TIZEN platform.

The event will bring the opportunity to explore new collaboration frameworks through the implementation of the Viulib library into Intel’s TIZEN platform.
