Event description

Description

The SAFE STRIP Project Consortium is pleased to invite you to its 1st Pan-European workshop. The workshop will bring together all of SAFE STRIP’s stakeholder clusters to discuss priorities regarding the goals of the project. The focus of the discussions will be on SAFE STRIP’s targeted applications and use cases in alignment with European-level priorities and roadmaps in the domain of C-ITS.

The workshop will begin with a presentation of the vision and implementation approach of the project, and will be followed by key note speeches by renowned experts in the field. The workshop will conclude with a roundtable discussion among all participants around the goals of the project in convergence with the latest progress and roadmaps in the C-ITS domain.

SPEAKERS

MR. PHILIPPE GOUGEON, VALEO


Philippe Gougeon, 55, graduated as Mechanical Engineer from INSA in Lyon. He started his career in the aerospace industry at SNECMA, working on the design of Structures and Compressors for jet engines. He joined the automotive supplier Valeo in the Wiper System branch in France and in the USA. After being the Director of the research projects for the Driving Assistance Systems, he is now the coordinator of the collaborative projects for the Comfort & Driving Assistance business group.


PROF. MAURO DA LIO, UNIVERSITY OF TRENTO (UNITN)

Maurio da Lio

Mauro Da Lio received the Laurea degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Padova, Italy, in 1986. He is currently a Full professor of mechanical systems with the University of Trento, Italy. His earlier research activity was on modeling, simulation and optimal control of mechanical multibody systems, in particular vehicle, and spacecraft dynamics. More recently his focus shifted to the modeling of human sensory-motor control, in particular drivers and motor impaired people. He was involved in several EU Framework Programme 6 and 7 Projects (PReVENT, SAFERIDER, interactIVe, VERITAS, AdaptIVe, and NoTremor). He is currently the Coordinator of the EU Horizon 2020 Dreams4Cars Research and Innovation Action: a collaborative project in the Robotics domain which aims at increasing the cognition abilities of artificial driving agents by means of offline simulation mechanisms broadly inspired to the human dream state.


MR. BILL HALKIAS, HELLASTRON

Bill Halkias is the Managing Director and CEO of ATTIKES DIADROMES SA, the President of HELLASTRON (Hellenic Association of Toll Road Network), and 1st Vice President of ASECAP, the European Toll Road Association.
