The Sensoriance project is progressing on time reaching the goals and milestones of the plan. The 12th of September we enjoyed a very important and productive follow-up meeting in MLabs Optronics facilities with the visit of Amanda Peattie, topic manager of Sensoriance project from Saab Avionics, Klas Granbom, senior system engineer from Saab Avionics and Christina-Maria Margariti project administrator at Clean Sky Joint Undertaking.
During the visit our partners from Saab and the Clean Sky program had the oportunity to visit MLabs Optronics laboratory and talk directly with the engineers developing Sensoriance system. Different specialists in optics, electronics, mechanics and software performed demonstrations with Sensoriance system prototype.
MLabs Optronics is leading the European R&D project Sensoriance, in collaboration with Saab Avionics Systems, developing an artificial vision and obstacle detection multisensorial system for aviation safety.
SENSORIANCE project goal is to develop a cost-effective system to improve safety in flight operations providing the aircraft with high definition vision capabilities in the IR and visual spectra. This vision system combines information from various sources, including a compact camera –consisting of a cost effective, versatile, high-performance and highly-reliable optical system— and external sensors, distributed in the form of LRU modules.
This information is then processed by a computer vision and image processing module to infer useful knowledge and event-reaction capabilities, aiding pilots during all phases of flight (taxi, takeoff, cruise, and landing).
