fp7 2

 

 

 

 

 

Operationally, the project's results will be produced through coordinated activities across the eight work packages described in the SAVELEC Work Plan.

The expected results of the different work packages are:

 

WP1 – Use cases and scenarios

WP1 aims to deliver a report on use scenarios definition and analysis. In particular, it will contain a description of the scenarios covering the whole applications, corresponding to the end users needs; their analysis, regarding the car stopping applications, leading to the operational requirements for the car stopping device; and the description of the use of the device in operational environment (operational risk analysis, integration constraint). The trials recommendations allowing to prove the requirements satisfaction is also part of this deliverable.

 

WP2 – EMP/HPM Technology Review

WP2 aims to deliver an EMP/HPM technology review and economic assessment report. It consists of a report that includes: Review of the state of the art of technologies and devices to generate EMP/HPM signals. An estimated assessment of the economic parameters regarding the different options and technologies available to generate EMP/HPM signals.

 

WP3 – Automotive EMC Analysis

WP3 aims to deliver:

 

  1. a. An automotive EMI/EMC legislation report summarizing the main findings from the analysis of strength and weakness of legislation on a level, which gives advice regarding the parts that might be vulnerable by specification.
  2. b. A report on the findings of the three dimensional 'macro-analysis' of vehicle architecture and components, which will indicate where sensitive parts in the vehicle are located, their possible typology/generalisation on fleet level as well as the description of the way of operation of CAN-bus, gateways and sensors
  3. c. An EMP/HPM interference feasibility analysis report, which will evaluate and analyze the feasible electromagnetic compatibility vulnerabilities in cars and light commercial vehicles as well as conclude into different strategies to stop or stall the engine.
 

WP4 – EMP/HPM test bench experiments

WP4 aims to deliver:

 

a. An EMI/EMC experiments plan report. This report will describe the needed test environment (automotive test bench set-up and EMP/HPM generation instrumentation) for carrying out the EMP/HPM experiments. In addition, the different test to be performed will be described in details.

 

b. A report on the EMI/EMC experiments results and conclusions. It will describe the outcomes of the different EMI/EMC tests performed. In addition to this an extrapolation of the test results regarding several parameters (ie.- longer distances or different field strengths) will be provided as well as part of this deliverable. It will also provide the necessary information for WP5 and WP6, in particular logs/log-files of CAN-communication and ECU performance during the tests.

 

WP5 – EMP/HPM device prototype development

WP5 aims to deliver:

 

  1. a. A report regarding the EMP/HPM device prototype technical specifications.
  2. b. A report regarding the EMP/HPM device prototype design specifications. It will describe the general architecture and the high level diagram block of the EMP/HPM prototype device. The interface among the different subsystems (antenna, amplifier, control unit, etc) will be defined as well. On the other hand the deliverable will include also the different designs and drawings regarding the different elements of the system not being COTS elements. A test plan for the assessment of the compliance with the defined requirements will be provided as well in this deliverable. This test plan will cover both the lab testing and the open field testing.
  3. c. A description of the EMP/HPM device breadboard prototype. This deliverable will describe the built prototype using graphical material. A 'user manual' and a performances description report will be part as well of this deliverable.
  4. d. A report regarding the trials and the corresponding results. It will integrate the results of the different tests performed in the lab environment and in the open filed controlled track.

Due to the nature of the WP5 activities, ethics approvals for open field testing are going to be provided by a Swedish competent authority.

 

WP6 – Regulatory Framework

WP6 aims to deliver:

 

  1. a. A report regarding the “Human factors conclusions”. In particular, the report contains a detailed description of the test/study design, a documentation of the tests/studies and the results (including the description of the analysis methods and underlying statistical procedures). It will contain advices for the use of EMP/HPM with respect to the situation and driver abilities.
  2. b. A report regarding the Human exposure to EMP/HPM. The report will contain a transparent description of the models that are used to simulate the effects of EMP/HPM on human. It will describe the results in different scenarios (in car, front seats rears seats, beside car =pedestrian etc.). The report will conclude with a risk assessment regarding freedom to operate and limitations of use (e.g. pregnancy or other factors that will be investigated in the simulations).
  3. c. A report regarding ATEX exposure to EMP/HPM. The report summarizes the results of the literature review (manufacturers specifications, research and scientific papers from fuel companies, industrial and public research institutes etc.) and the derived risks of EMP/HPM usage against the background of different ATEX.
  4. d. A regulatory framework proposal. The report contains the results of the conducted federal state law and EU federal law, especially the limitations of the use by police forces and a draft of law revision to solve those limiting factors that were identified in WP 6.

Due to the nature of WP6 activities, three Independent Ethics Advisory Board Reports that assess the implications of the research as well as monitor all activities for compliance to EU ethical standards will be also delivered. In addition, approval for volunteers test campaign will be provided by a Swedish competent authority for performing the volunteers test campaign in a simulated environment for the assessment of human factors.

 

The above described results are going to be disseminated according to the following WP7 activities:

 

WP7 – Dissemination and exploitation

WP7 aims to deliver:

 

  1. a. The project website, which will be available to the general public and will include security insensitive information regarding the project itself, the partners and links to dissemination activities and deliverables of the project.
  2. b. The Dissemination plan that will include a description and guide of the dissemination activities that will be available during the project in order to ensure effective dissemination of project results to the general audience, governmental authorities and among project partners.
  3. c. An intermediate dissemination report that includes all the dissemination activities that will have been carried out up to Month 20 of the project cycle life.
  4. d. Three workshops: The 1st SAVELEC Workshop will disseminate the results regarding operational requirements and current technological state-of-the-art in the field of the SAVELEC project. The 2nd SAVELEC Workshop will disseminate the results regarding initial test-bench experimental measurements and EMP/HPM device prototype requirements-specifications as well as regulatory and legal study guidelines and projected framework. The 3rd SAVELEC Workshop will fully disseminate project results including EMP/HMP device’s performance and field trial tests results and experiments.
  5. e. A final Dissemination report including all dissemination activities that will have been carried out up to the end of the project.
  6. f. An exploitation plan in the form of a detailed report that will include a description and plan for the most effective exploitation of the SAVELEC project results, taking into account the state-of-the-art in technological and commercial level. Also, the exploitation plan will include a business plan for the commercial exploitation of the SAVELEC project results.
