The 4 Year ReACTIVE Too project is a research network that was launched in February 2020 and has 12 Partners from Four EU Countries and China; with University of Wolverhampton as Coordinator.
ReACTIVE Too: Reliable Electronics for Tomorrow's Active Systems is a research-focused project that brings together a unique team of academic and industrial members. The team will tackle challenging aspects of reliability and future developments in electronic systems. Consisting of European organisations from Finland, France, Poland and the UK and international partners from China, each partner country will supply both industrial and academic units.
ReACTIVE Too will do research into design for reliability for electronics-based systems and will include the introduction of an agile hardware development cycle with virtual techniques to uniquely address reliability and physical validation in active safety systems.
Exemplar systems from partner companies in Automotive and Healthcare will be used to validate the ideas. The team will be developed through a series of workshops and secondments. Future plans will be developed during these interactions to target new research and innovation topics and more intense interactions by making future joint funding proposals.
The overarching objective of this RISE programme “ReACTIVE Too” is to form an international and inter-sectoral network of organisations working on a joint research programme in the fields of Active Safety or Smart Systems for Automated Driving1, Active/Ambient assisted Living, Active Health, and Active/Green Energy.
The participants will exchange skills and knowledge that will allow them to progress towards key advances in Active Systems, and strengthen collaborative research between different countries and sectors. In the longer term, the combined expertise of the proposed team will contribute to a reduction in road fatalities, increased reliability and productivity for electronics-based systems, added value to the healthcare sector though improved ambient assisted living, increased energy efficiency by introducing active energy harvesting into products, and more efficient use of rare resources helping to protect the environment.
These advances will create potential market opportunities for non-academic participants in the project and have significant benefit for European society. The staff members who participate in the project will develop new skills, be exposed to new research environments and have their career perspectives widened.
The overall aim of this proposed exchange programme “ReACTIVE Too” is to bring together an international team of researchers and industrialists to establish a research network, with a wide variety of skills in electronics interconnections (UoW, LJMU, APTIV, TUT, SUT, SAMK), design of electronic based systems (APTIV, SUT, LJMU), smart textiles (TUT, SAMK, UBFC), energy harvesting (UBFC, CTEC, ASAS, SCLL), automotive active safety (APTIV, SUT, LJMU), IoT and sensors (TUT, SCLL, APTIV, UBFC), active and assisted living technologies (SAMK, TUT, JUNET), AI and data management (SUT, APTIV, LJMU), and reliability engineering (LJMU, UoW, APTIV, TUT, SAMK).
The team will develop novel tools for agile design, testing, analysing and improving the reliability of new devices in various demanding applications and environments, such as in automotive user experience and active safety applications and active and assisted living, which will help manufacturers identify and mitigate failure risks during the design stage; and consequently help to optimise reliability in all applications, moreover realise substantial design time efficiencies and cost savings.
