TransSec: A Year in Review

Engineering

A look back over the last year for TransSec

The TransSec project commenced in February 2018, and is a 36-month project, funded under the Horizon 2020 Programme. Within the TransSec project the experience of the consortium for the first year consisted of what can be considered normal in all projects of this type (EU funded with an international consortium). 

Leaders
The TransSec project includes leaders in the fields of telecoms and other wireless, high speed communications protocols at the Telecommunications, Software and Systems Group (TSSG) at Waterford Institute of Technology. The carefully-selected, expert teams from across Europe are working together with a leading global truck manufacturer on the development of a new type of truck that is fitted with impregnable road transport and dangerous goods protection systems

The first year of the TransSec project was set over to mostly planning for the entire lifespan of the project and designing the architecture for the TransSec solution. Each of the work packages got to grips with what is required of them and how each shall interact with the other work packages. Also included was the planning for the demonstration of the projects’ results. To aid this several trucks have been made available to the project and as such all of the consortium members have been hands on with the “testbeds“. So with the plan in place, initial research carried out and a significant amount of deliverables submitted (22 in total) the project has established a firm base to continue the remaining phases of the work to achieve all of the project objectives.

Deliverables
The set of deliverables for the first year of the TransSec project consists of:
22 deliverables
8 of which are public deliverables
18 Reports
4 Demonstrators

All of these outputs have provided focus and clear direction for the consortium and has provided a firm foundation for the remaining activities within the project. As always, all of the public deliverables are available directly from the TransSec website free for anyone to download and view.
