Quasset team in Seville for the kick-off of the SIMAR Project
Quasset’s Tjibbe Bouma, Luc Stakenborg and Arnaud Andrianavalomahefa were in Seville this week for the kick-off of the SIMAR Project. Quasset is part of a consortium of seven high profile European partners from five EU Member States, which were carefully selected for their proven experience to provide the necessary knowledge, expertise, and cutting-edge background for the success of the project. The members of the consortium include FADA-CATEC, Chevron Oronite, Vertical Engineering Solutions (VES), University of Seville and BASF. The SIMAR Project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation program under a grant agreement.
The SIMAR Project objectives include improving the circumstances for humans to perform inspections in dangerous environments in a safe, robust, and efficient way, and implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR) systems to reduce human workload and level of stress.
Quasset will lead certain tasks and deliverables, namely the development of an AR system for a safe, robust, and trusted inspection; the development of supporting tools for decision-making; the creation of digital tooling for human-empowered evaluation performance; and the study of the impact assessment against societal, ethical, and legal requirements. In addition, Quasset will also contribute the communication and dissemination of the SIMAR Project, in particular for reporting on the business cases and strategies for market uptake and deployment.
