Funding from Vinnova SEK 823 500
Project duration December 2008 - December 2011
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The ENIAC JU project SE2A can be regarded as a set of coherent activities around certain themes, each of which is expected to contribute to the main goals. These goals are: 1. Increase of the fuel efficiency by development of dedicated sensors 2. Reduction of the CO2 emission, likewise by the development of dedicated sensors 3. Enhanced safety by the application of dedicated sensors and improved system concepts 4. Enhanced reliability and lifetime predictability to a level of zero ppm and 95% accuracy, to be achieved by increased process and product robustness

Results and expected effects

The Swedish partners (VTEC, Optronic, and SP) will do research and development on an optically based true ground speed sensor for the benefit of enhanced existing and future vehicle safety system and by using existing vehicle sensors through innovative sensor data fusion algorithms.

Approach and implementation

WP1 Definition of carrier and specifications The goal of this work package is to gather information to be able to make specifications. WP3 Sensor & actuators The goal of this work packages is to understand the phenomena and the environments the sensor will be exposed to and develop a sensor for these circumstances and the specifications found in WP1. WP5 Prototyping & verification The goal of this work package is to implement the prototype sensor into a vehicle for real life test and to develop a validation method to be able to verify the prototype sensors properties
