EDUSAFEGoals and Partners

O. Beltramello – 17.09.2012


EDUSAFE in the ATLAS Experiment at CERN

  • ATLAS experiment and CERN safety and radioprotection requirements brought us the development of a safety system to supervise and assist our personnel
  • exposed to extreme environment:
      • Radiations
      • Confined and difficult accessible areas
      • Gases
  • The aim of the system is to improve safety, reduce errors and decrease the time needed for scheduled intervention or emergency and reduce the stress linked to these interventions

What are our needs ?

  • develop a continuous and secure audio and video communication between the exposed personnel and a remote supervisor in difficult accessible areas
  • monitor health and safety status of our personnel
  • provide them secure and real time information (safety status, activities procedure and data,..) via the most suitable visualization techniques and systems
  • provide to our personnel a visualization of the gamma radiation doses in their working environment
  • design a system structure (SW and HW) easily wearable and adaptable to other type of environment: nuclear installation, fire fighting, deep sea, space and in general to other markets

In this context, we are going to perform the Marie Curie Initial Training Network Program EDUSAFE ...

3.2 ME budget

1st Sept. 2012 – August 2016

10 Early Stage Researchers (ESR)

2 Experienced Researchers (ER)

Coordinator: CERN/ ATLAS

9 Full Partners (3 industries):

AUEB, Athens University of Economics and Business, Greece

Canberra, France

CERN / ATLAS, Switzerland

EPFL, EcolePolythechniqueFederale de Lausanne, Switzerland

Novocaptis, Greece

NTUA, National Technical University Athens, Greece

DUTH, Democritus University of Thrace, Greece

NTUA, National Technical University Athens, Greece


What are the EDUSAFE Research and Training Challenges

  • Real time data transmission in difficult wireless environments
  • Instantaneous data analysis:
  • - pattern recognition (time lag less than human interaction speed)
  • - pose determination coming from various sources (video, sensors,..)
  • Real time data visualization methods, VR and AR system architecture optimization, rendering
  • Integrated control system development adaptable to various environment
  • Analysis and development of the most appropriate display infrastructure systems, architecture and command methods to visualize data.
  • Development beyond the state of the art of a light and fast gamma radiation camera and its associated SW with AR features and integrated the system
  • Portability, wearability, complex interfaces of the personal portable system optimization

What are the EDUSAFE Research and Training Challenges

  • The researchers will be trained via an intensive training program combined with very practical technology and systems development:
  • The main aspect will be on-the job training through the work on the individual research project.
    • In his host institution, each fellow will have the possibility to follow colloquium, scientific courses, and seminar.
    • All ESR will be offered the possibility to do a doctorate.
  • All ESR and ER will be offered an intensive secondment training program (up to 30 % of their time) on specific and appropriate technical topics but also in management, career development, leadership, IPs, economical aspects, soft skills...
  • This is delivered via knowledge transfer, work place based training, introduction to techniques and methodology, and if required appropriate formal courses.
  • Several network training events will be organized:
    • Joint training Event, Workshops, Summer Schools
  • The training program will be complemented by regular testing campaigns in the ATLAS Experimental Areas (2 weeks)

A pre - prototype of the system is existing and have been tested on ATLAS experimental areas (ATLAS, Prisma, Novocaptis)

It does not solve the research and technical issues addressed in EDUSAFE ....

..... but it will be a good start for the fellows to play with !

Project Organization and Management Structure

CERN coordinates the project via the Network Coordinator (O. Beltramello) and the Project Office ( Seamus Hegarty, Gregory Cavallo and Marie Trabaud, Karen Ernst, Hanna Juujarvi and Roy Pennings ).

CERN will fulfill the duties defined in the Grant Agreement.

The project structure is reflected in the CA to be signed by all project partners.

ATLAS will in addition request the signature of the ATLAB Memorandum of Understanding.

Supervisory Board :

This is the strategic decision making authority.

It consist of a representative of each partner and associate partner.

Executive Committee :

This is the network managerial team, in charge to steer the scientific, training and administrative activities.


To conclude ...

We have a very challenging and exciting project for the 4 (and more) coming years.

The main words of this project are Collaboration, Communication, Integration and Training.

The success of the project will be based on the good, and very regular collaboration between all individual research projects. Most of these projects are fully inter dependant.

We will try to establish very effective communication channels between the various ESRs/SICs (cf. Supervisory board and WPs).

The training program is very intense, we will ask all your support to fufill it.


To conclude ...

We will strengthen the network events scheme imposed by European Commission by additional technical reviews all along the project life:

Design reviews, Production Readiness review, etc..

The detailed schedule will be set up depending on the recruitment of the fellows.

We will ask your participation as reviewers (as well as eventually external experts) to guaranty that we all agree on the technical choices of the project.

ATLAS will be a perfect place to test and tune the system .. and we have 2 years of shutdown in front of us, this is an unique opportunity.

The fellows will be granted with the access to the ATLAS underground areas.

The quality of the fellows training and publications will be based on the success of the integrated system.
