ECSEL project proposal enters negotiation phase

14, Jan, 2015

The European research project proposal MANTIS submitted to the last ECSEL JU call was approved and passed to the negotiation phase.

The overall concept of MANTIS (Cyber Physical System based Proactive Collaborative Maintenance) is to provide a proactive maintenance service platform architecture based on Cyber Physical Systems that allows to estimate future performance, to predict and prevent imminent failures and to schedule proactive maintenance. The research addressed in MANTIS will contribute to companies' assets availability, competitiveness, growth and sustainability. Use cases will be the testing ground for the innovative functionalities of the proactive maintenance service platform architecture and for its future exploitation in the industrial world. Results of MANTIS can be utilized directly in several industry areas and different fields of maintenance.

CISTER/INESC-TEC will be part of a Portuguese consortium integrating INESC-TEC, UNINOVA and ADIRA. In this project CISTER/INESC-TEC will lead the work package related to dissemination and will work on an industrial pilot using ADIRA machines and also on the development of sensors for maintenance, their communication protocols and the middlewares which will make that information available to higher layers.

The ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking (which is now part of ECSEL) has always been one of the flagship and most attractive funding frameworks that has fostered scientific research in Europe, in particular the research in cyber-physical systems. Throughout the years researchers in CISTER/INESC-TEC have been active members of numerous project consortium with a successful track record of accepted projects at every call. CISTER perpetuated this tradition with the MANTIS project.
