Tool Integration Industrial Cases

Within iFEST, one of the most important objectives was the validation of the iFEST Integration Framework in industrial settings. In this direction, different industrial cases have been developed. The following is a list of the publically available Tool Integration Industrial Cases:


A Tool Integration Industrial Case - ROVER

The industrial case will focus on a movable pan/tilt camera mounting a simple digital filter for the video acquisition subsystem in a real control system for our UAV/UGV systems, more in particular for the Rover family. The case is based on HW and SW co-design, where functionality relies on both areas, configuration and filtering, interfacing and characterization of devices to be used later in the real environment.


A Tool Integration Industrial Case - Small Wind Turbine 

ABB demonstrator is a Small Wind Turbine which is small enough to handle within the scope of the project but complex enough to handle typical ABB technology with control automation. ABB do not produce wind turbines, but develop components used in wind turbines. The components used in this small wind turbine is not a ABB products, but is commercial available components used for the same or similar products except the rotor which is take from a RC helicopter. However, the tools and technology used for development is the same.


 Radio Frequencty Reciever - Streaming aplication- by Selex ES 

Streaming Application .- RF reciever 

The industrial case which will be used by Selex ES to trial the iFEST framework will be a streaming design implementing a digital radio frequency (RF) receiver. RF receivers areused by Selex ES in its products to sense at radio frequencies the electromagnetic environment that surrounds the platform on which the product is fitted. This platform isusually mobile, for example an aircraft, boat, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or even a human being.

 Thales Radar Application - Streaming aplication- by THALES (TRT/TSA)

Streaming Application .- Thales Radar Application

The goal of the Thales Radar application is basically to detect and follow flying objects in a nominal sector of sky. At a given moment, the radar observes a narrow angular sector in a direction by emitting a particular sequence of signal called dwell, and analyses the echo from this signal in order to detect the presence of objects (targets) and compute their distance and their speed.
