Press Release: ENABLE-S3 Final Event in Graz Follows Three Years of Intensive Research
68 European partners from 16 countries and six domains spent three years working on the research project ENABLE-S3 in the field of automated systems. Coordinated by AVL, a hightech company based in Graz, ENABLE-S3 set itself the objective of establishing an overarching platform for the cost-efficient validation and verification of autonomous and highlyautomated vehicles, trains, tractors, ships, airplanes, satellites and hospital examination equipment. Following intensive research work, the most important findings will be presented as part of a final event on May 16-17, 2019, at the Helmut List Halle in Graz. More than 200 participants from 20 countries have confirmed their attendance.
The event, which will be held in English, brings together representatives of industry, funding agencies, politics and other European undertakings, and informs about one of the largest EU projects ever to be conducted in the field of automated systems. The exhibition, featuring more than 40 prototypes, will give visitors the exclusive opportunity to gain first-hand insights into demonstrators from the sectors Automotive, Aerospace, Rail, Maritime, Health and Farming, and meet the people behind the project.
ENABLE-S3 is funded through the ECSEL Joint Undertaking, which receives support from the European Union's research and innovation program Horizon 2020 and the participating countries. It combines the expertise of a broad range of research institutions, technology providers and users of the systems. 68 European partners have been working together on industry-driven use cases in an effort to improve the safety and security of automated systems in a variety of industries. Among the project partners are AVL as well as renowned institutions and companies, such as Aalborg University (Denmark), Airbus Defence and Space GmbH (Germany), DLR German Aerospace Center (Germany), IBM Research (Ireland), Philips Medical Systems Nederland BV (Netherlands), Renault SAS (France), Siemens (Germany), TNO (Netherlands), Toyota (Belgium) and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) and Virtual Vehicle Research Center (Austria).
AVL is the world’s largest independent company for the development, simulation and testing of powertrain systems (hybrid, combustion engines, transmission, e-motors, batteries and software) for passenger cars, commercial vehicles and large engines. Apart from powertrain electrification, the company is increasingly taking on new tasks in the field of autonomous driving, and is focusing in particular on the testing of automated vehicles, the basis of human experience and the use of artificial intelligence. AVL has more than 10,400 employees all over the world. In 2018, sales revenues reached EUR 1.75 billion.
