The European Commission has awarded the European research project "Eyes of Things" spearheaded by the UCLM

28/11/2019

The European Commission has given the Electronic Components and Systems Innovation Award to a European research project spearheaded by the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), which has developed an artificial vision platform which may be used either on its own or in combination with toys, robots, or wearable technology such as jackets or caps.

The European project "Eyes of Things" spearheaded by the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) by means of the research group VISILAB and which was developed between January 2015 and July 2018, received the Electronic Components and Systems Innovation Award granted by the European Commission. "Eyes of Things" developed an artificial vision platform which may be used on its own or in combination with toys, robots, or wearable technology such as jackets or caps. This project involved eight European partners and received 3.7 million euros of funding from Brussels for the Horizonte 2020 programme.

The award granted by the European Commission to the project spearheaded by the UCLM, is given to the most innovative idea for electronic components and systems from projects in the FP7 programme and Horizonte 2020. It was collected by Oscar Déniz, professor at the Higher Technical School of Industrial Engineering at the UCLM, and coordinator of the "Eyes of Things" project during the European Forum on Electronic Components and Systems (EFECS´2019) held in Helsinki, Finland. During the ceremony the innovation awards for the CATRENE and ECSEL programmes were also presented, which were both given to projects led by Infineon, the semiconducters manufacturer.

This new award has been added to the prize for Technological Transference from the European network, HiPEAC (High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation), the most prestigious one on the continent in the field of computer systems, which was commissioned the project in December 2018.

The platform developed in the ‘Eyes of Things’ project is being used by the Irish start up Ubotica Technologies, which has established its headquarters in the business incubator of the UCLM on the Ciudad Real campus where 6 university graduates are currently working. The group VISILAB provides science-technology consultancy services to companies and through the Aula Ubotica (Ubotica Classroom) created at the UCLM. Ubotica currently uses technology developed in high profile projects for companies such as Intel, Lenovo and the European Space Agency.
