Estonian Centre of Excellence in ICT Research
|Contact: Maarja Kruusmaa ||https://www.excite.it.ee||ETIS|
|"EXCITE brings together the topranked ICT research groups Estonia to work jointly on a focussed, yet broad and extendable, research programme. It will capitalize on the existing expertise to create synergies on the rich but fragmented landscape of the Estonian ICT research. The consortium will advance foundational theories of model verification and data analysis. On this groundwork, it will develop methods and tools for sound practices of designing and analyzing reliable and secure ICT systems processing large data volumes, as demanded by applications to domains of high socioeconomic relevance (cyberphysical and robotic systems, ehealth and biomedical systems). We will start with 10 cooperation themes with clearly defined objectives, methodology and expected results.|

Computing systems have developed at a tremendous pace and have penetrated all areas of our society. However, the laws of physics are setting a limit for further development of the computing systems technology, unless paradigms based on multi-core architectures are adopted and issues related to systems dependability are solved. The current Theme offers an integrated approach to these challenges by combining the separate research fields of multi-core design, reliability, verification and test. The Theme includes internationally acknowledged Principal Investigators and a research team with a high level of experience in running national and international research projects and it provides a coherent solution for the scientific problems of dependable multi-core computing systems. As a result, scalable methods for synthesis, mixed-criticality application scheduling, verification and test for large systems consisting of thousands of processor cores will be developed.

|FOMCON (“Fractional-order Modeling and Control”) is a project dedicated to research and development of applications of fractional calculus to modeling and control of complex dynamic systems. The project results in development of FOMCON toolbox for MATLAB/Simulink environment. Additional information about the project is available at http://fomcon.net/|

|Fractional-order systems have lately been attracting significant attention and gaining more acceptance as generalization to classical integer-order systems. Mathematical basics of fractional-order calculus were laid nearly 300 years ago and since that it has gained deeply rooted mathematical concepts. Today, it is known that many real dynamic systems cannot be described by a system of simple differential equation or of integer-order system. In practice we can encounter such systems in electronics, signal processing, thermodynamics, biology, medicine, control theory, etc. The Action will favour scientific advancement in above mentioned areas by coordinating activities of academic research groups towards an efficient deployment of fractal theory to industry applications. The cooperation of researchers from different institutions will guarantee wide visibility of Action results.|
Bio-inspired underwater robots
|Contact: Maarja Kruusmaa||ETIS|
|We introduce a new paradigm into the field of underwater robotics, namely robots that use new types of - sensing to interpret flow information - soft embodiment and flexible actuators that can reduce energy consumption and harvest energy from flow - control algorithms that help the vehicle navigate with respect to flow The method of this research topic is mainly biomimetics: using and analogy to biological systems to solve problems in engineering. Mostly, it is based on the analogy between: - fish lateral line sensing and robotic sensors for flow sensing - biological propulsors (fins and flippers) and flexible man-made hydrofoils. The secondary approach is reverse biomimetics: Namely we use: -artificial lateral line sensors to understand river hydrodynamics and migrating fish behaviour in rivers - fish robots to understand fish school dynamics and kin recognition The proposal advances those technologies from laboratory conditions (TRL4) to field tests in operational environments (TRL7).|

"LAkHsMI will develop a new bio-inspired technology to make continuous and cost-effective measurements of the near-field, large-scale hydrodynamic situation, for environmental monitoring in cabled ocean observatories, marine renewable energy and port/harbor security. We will design, manufacture, and field test prototype smart sensor cables that measure differential pressure and temperature on the ocean floor and enable high resolution imaging of the surrounding volume in space and time, is simple, inexpensive and has very low power consumption. LAkHsMI will also develop innovative methods for hydrodynamic imaging.
