Second SENSKIN plenary takes place at partner TECNIC in Rome

Second plenary reviews progress of first year of project


From 17-18th May 2016, the second SENSKIN plenary was organized at the TECNIC premises in Rome. The plenary meeting was attended by all partners of SENSKIN and all Work Package (WP) leaders presented the progress of each WP respectively. In the first year of the project, the efforts of all partners have focused on the extraction and structuring of the end-user requirements that in turn have driven the development of the system architecture and system specifications that are now final (work inside WP1). Following these, all the technical WPs have started their developments. The first sensor prototype has just been finalised and is currently entering the first testing and evaluation phase where its technical specifications will be validated on actual specimens in laboratory environments (WP2 and WP4). The SENSKIN communication interface is also being designed now with the first hardware being combined, integrated and tested. It is expected that the first alpha prototype of the SENSKIN communication system will be drafted by the end of 2016 (WP3). In parallel, WP5 and WP6 have focused on the structural assessment modules as well as the life-cycle-assessment/costing, multi-criteria decision-making, parameters for/against decision on specific measures as well as their particular LCA and LCC methodologies.
