Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is the new frontier of automotive technologies. In this context, the current research aims to develop nanomaterials and innovative technologies to assist the driver during the driving. This goal is pursued through multifunctional approaches based on the development and integration of innovative sensors able to monitoring multiple parameters involving key aspects for the driver. These mainly includes: (a) the driver’s psycho-physiological status through the real time control of its drowsiness (the heart rate and its variability) and its sobriety level; (b) the driver’s environment through the monitoring of air quality of the passenger compartment. In this Workshop a survey of the most innovative approaches for ADASs will be presented.

WInSiC4AP core objective is to contribute in developing reliable technology bricks for efficient and cost-effective applications addressing social challenges and market segments where Europe is a recognized global leader as well as automotive, avionics, railway and defence. This workshop aims to demonstrate the powerful of SiC for those sectors, through an innovative research approach developed in the project, that will permit to overcome the “state of the art” of the available components as expected from the results by the end of the project.
The 10th edition of the Forum della Borsa della Ricerca was held from May 28th to 30th in Salerno, within the Campus of the University of Salerno, partner of the event. More than 250 delegates attended the 3 days, representing 65 companies.
The first day was dedicated to the opening plenary session: “From research to entrepreneurship”. Thanks to the interventions of the speakers involved, evidence was given of the importance of the contribution of researchers to business creation.
The second day focused on one-to-one meetings between groups, research doctors or spin-offs and R&D managers of the participating companies. As part of the meetings, particular attention was reserved by the Distretto Tecnologico Sicilia Micro e Nano Sistemi to the WInSiC4UP project, which received considerable interest from most of the participating companies. The third day saw the organization of the pitch session. More than 50 companies from all over Italy – spinoffs, research groups and startups – have presented their business idea to investors and companies.
At the end of the pitch day, the BdR Awards were presented by Amadori, Meta Group, SellaLab, Microcredito Italiano and G-Factor (Fondazione Golinelli), awards from the Research Scholarship designed to concretely support the participating realities and transform ideas into projects innovative.

The First International Workshop on “Wide Band Gap Innovative SiC for Advanced Power” will be held in Tours (France), on March 7th, 2019. The Workshop is organized in the framework of the ECSEL JU European Project WInSiC4AP and will be hosted by the Ecole d’ingénieurs Polytech of the University of Tours.
As coordinator of the WInSiC4AP project, DTSMNS is involved in the organization of this event, together with CNR-IMM, IUNET and University of Tours.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss the recent advances in silicon carbide (4H-SiC) devices technology, processing and characterizations, and reliability issues. Moreover, new applications of 4H-SiC devices in the fields of automotive, railway and avionics will be also presented.
The workshop will have the patronage of the ECSEL JU and is free of charge (including admission, coffee breaks and lunch).

The Kick-off meeting of “ADAS+ Development of advanced technologies and systems for safe cars through ADAS platforms” project was held at the STMicroelectronics headquarter in Catania on november 16st.
“ADAS+” project was funded by MIUR within National Operational Program for Reseach and Innovation 2014-2020 – Sustainable Mobility specialization area.
The Technological Cluster Sicily Micro and Nano Systems participates in the project as Beneficiary in collaboration with its partners CNR and University of Palermo.
Implementation Parties are:
- STMicroelectronics (as Coordinator);
- CONSORZIO NAZIONALE INTERUNIVERSITARIO PER LA NANOELETTRONICA;
- University of MODENA e REGGIO EMILIA;
- University of BOLOGNA;
- Distretto Tecnologico Sicilia Micro e Nano Sistemi scarl;
- Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche – Istituto per i Processi Chimico Fisici;
- University of Palermo;
- INNOVAAL scarl;
- Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche – Istituto per la microelettronica e microsistemi;
- MR&D spa;
- INSTM – Consorzio Interuniversitario Nazionale per la Scienza e Tecnologia dei Materiali:
- MTA spa;
- University of Catania;
- University “G. d’Annunzio” of Chieti-Pescara.
The project, with an total cost of € 9.110.200,40, aims to develop an innovative demonstrator of safe driving assistance (ADAS +) able to monitor in real time the psychophysical state of the driver, his level of sobriety and the quality of the air in the passenger compartment. This goal will be achieved through the use of advanced silicon-based technologies, image processing algorithms and nano-structured materials, integrated into a common platform that meet the safe driving standards required for new generation of “smart” cars.
The WInSiC4AP project is one of the fi rst examples of the technical and scientific integration of two financial mechanisms, one is European (funds from the ECSEL JU programme) and the other all-Italian FESR funds from the Italian Ministry of Education and Universities: this characteristic explains how the project can count on such important funding – to cover part of the about 30 million euro of the research costs – , and the many projects partners involved – (twenty in total covering four different Countries, and coordinated by the Sicilian Microand Nano Systems Technological District).
