NaviDate Ltd has been awarded a research and development grant to support the industrial research project “Passive Optoelectronic Search Engine System”.
This state support will greatly accelerate the prototype development process as well as the implementation cycle and commissioning.
Research and development in the project will be directed to the optimization of algorithms for detection of moving objects specialized for prototypes implemented within a project with a particular use in practice:
- monitoring of the airspace near the airport
- monitoring of the truck movement on the airport’s moving surfaces
- measuring the speed of vehicles in the road traffic.
All three algorithmic problems will be solved in real time, so optimization will be the key procedure. Optimized algorithms based on artificial intelligence and machine learning will be used especially during object identification.
The expected outcome of the project is the methodology for the individual proposed procedures and functional prototypes for those areas with clearly defined limitations and risks.
Research team consists of the following specialists:
- Prof. Ing. Gustáv Kasanický, CSc., director of the Institute of Forensic Engineering of the University of Žilina, researcher in the field of traffic analysis
- Doc. Ing. Jozef Schwartz, CSc., researcher in the field of mechatronic and applied mechanics
- MUDr. Peter Schwartz, researcher in the field of applied physics
- Ing. Eduard Kolla, PhD., assistant of the director for the research activities of the Institute of Forensic Engineering of the University of Žilina
