IMT role: partner, Dr. Adrian Dinescu ([email protected])
Ctr. no 33/2016, 5 January, 2016-29 December, 2018
Project Topic: Functional Materials Focusing on Sensors

EU partners: Reykjavik University (School of Science and Engineering), Iceland (contact person: Dr. Halldor G. Svavarsson); Pi Technology, Iceland (contact person: Eng. Baldur Thorgilsson)
Project Objectives: The goal of this project is obtaining oxide films (TiO2, SiO2) functionalized with embedded GeSi NPs, having good photoconductive properties in VIS-NIR for optical sensors to be used in environmental applications, to evaluate the slippery road conditions causing traffic accidents by spectrally discriminating between dry, wet and icy road surfaces to enhance collision avoidance. These films have selective spectral sensitivity in the ranges of reflection/ absorption bands of dry, wet and icy asphalt, and consequently can discriminate between these different road conditions.

RoboCom++ - "Rethinking Robotics for the Robot Companion of the future"


FLAG–ERA JTC 2016 Call, 2017 – 2020, Contract No. 5 / 01.03.2017
Coordinator: Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna/ The BioRobotics Institute (SSSA), Italy.
IMT Role: partner. Contact person: Dr. Carmen Moldovan ([email protected])


The main objective of the RoboCom++ proposal is to lay the foundation for a future global interdisciplinary research programme (e.g., a FET-Flagship project) on a new science-based transformative Robotics, to be launched by the end of the H2020 Programme. RoboCom++ will gather the community and organise the knowledge necessary to rethink the design principles and fabrication technologies of future robots.

CONVERGENCE - "Frictionless energy efficient convergent wearables for healthcare and lifestyle applications"


FLAG–ERA JTC 2016 Call, 2017 – 2020, Contract No. 9 / 01.04.2017
Coordinator: Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale Lausanne, Switzerland.
IMT Role: partner. Contact person: Dr. Carmen Moldovan ([email protected])


The wearable sensor platform proposed in CONVERGENCE is centred on energy efficient wearable proof-of-concepts at system level exploiting data analytics developed in a context driven approach (in contrast with more traditional research where the device level research and the data analytics are carried out on separate path, rarely converging). Here we choose realistic wearable form factors for our energy efficient systems such as wrist-based and patch-based devices.

Main area: High-Efficiency Sensor Networks
Keywords: Low power wearable sensors, bio-sensors, activity sensors, environmentalsensors, energy harvesting, energy efficient wearables, energy efficient autonomous systems, signal processing, data analytics, preventive healthcare strategies, energy harvesting, energy efficient computing and communications, heterogeneous integration on flex, silicon-in-foil.


i-bracelet - "Inteligent bracelet for blood pressure monitoring and detection of preeclampsia"


EUREKA project, 2017 – 2020, Contract RO No. 59/2017
Coordinator: Cherry Biotech, Franta
Coordinator Romania: Info World SRL
IMT Role: partner. Contact person: Dr. Carmen Moldovan ([email protected])


We propose the development of a sensor system for the early detection of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy such as pre-eclampsia and other blood pressure as well. The system will consist of a bracelet that incorporates a pressure sensor for continuous recording of the blood pressure wave form across the wrist artery. The resulting data will be sent via wireless connection to a smart phone or a computer. A software application will be developed to predict early signs of disorders.
