RESIST – The RESilient transport InfraSTructure to extreme events!
July 01, 2020 / in News /
As a part of the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, RESIST is a three-year research project launched in September 2018, consisting of 17 partners from 9 countries.
It aims to increase the resilience of seamless transport operation to natural and man-made extreme events, protect users of the European transport infrastructures, and provide optimal information to the operators and users of the transport infrastructure.
RESIST uses risk analyses and further develops recent research results in robotics, driving under stress, sensing and ICT technologies, to dramatically improve the speed and effectiveness, while reducing the cost, of structural vulnerability assessment, situation awareness, response operations and increased users’ protection under extreme events towards a high level of resilience of the transport infrastructures.
The RESIST solution will be demonstrated and validated in real conditions at steel and concrete bridges and tunnels in Greece and Italy, attacked by several types of extreme physical, natural and man-made incidents, and cyber-attacks.
So yes! It is as amazing as it sounds!
During the first half of the project, European Dynamics as the leader of the integration and the exploitation work packages, actively participated in the following activities: (a) elicitation of RESIST system requirements, (b) design of RESIST System architecture, while defining the specifications, (c) design of RESIST Integration Plan, (d) design of RESIST innovation Management Plan, (e) design of RESIST Exploitation Plan, (f) monitoring of all integration and exploitation activities of the consortium.
For the integration of all RESIST components, European Dynamics, developed a first prototype of the RESIST Integration Environment. It is a web desktop application that provides a single point of access for all applications of RESIST, including also capabilities like application and user management. Finally, in terms of data integration, a platform and an API (Application Program Interface) were developed to gather and store data collected during inspection or shared between the components of the project.
