The T-SAR project officially started this month, with a kick-off meeting held on April 23rd and 24th at Simula, Fornebu. The T-SAR partners and collaborators include STATSAT AS, who develops and provides space infrastructure for Norwegian public purposes, represented by Dr. Frank Olaf Sem-Jacobsen, University of Franche-Comté represented by Prof. Bruno Legeard, and Graz University of Technology, represented by Prof. Franz Wotawa. T-SAR is coordinated by Simula, complementing research activities running in Certus.
T-SAR aims to develop a novel AI-based technology that will improve the safety in public transport systems, focusing on three important application areas: air and marine traffic management systems, and connected vehicles. The project is expected to enhance the capabilities of current traffic management systems with AI-driven FDIA generation and detection technology, building the ground for more secure self-driving vessels, aircrafts, and cars.
T-SAR received funding from the IKTPLUSS initiative, which is the Research Council of Norway (RCN) large-scale initiative on information technology and digital research and innovation. AT ICT Norway conference NEO 2019, CEO of the RCN presented TSAR as an important AI project.
