The I-SENSE Group that is responsible for the ICT4CART project activities was founded in 2002 and is one of the Research Groups within ICCS. It has extensive expertise working on EU-funded research projects and significant presence in international conferences and scientific journals. The I-SENSE Group is very active in areas dealing with Automated Transport Systems (automated driving, automation in transport and cybersecurity), Cooperative Systems, Electromobility, Field Operational tests (FOTs), Human Machine Interaction (HMI), data Fusion, Logistics and Supply Chain management and Internet related research (IoT, Cloud services etc.). The Group is also active in other fields, such as in Smart Integrated Systems - Sensors, Communication Systems, Platforms, Virtual and Augmented Reality.
The I-SENSE Group has a long expertise in European research projects, having participated in more than 120 projects, serving as the Project Coordinator and/or having other key roles such as Technical/Scientific/Innovation/Dissemination Manager, WP leader and other.
