European Regional Development Fund Operational Programme “Growth and Employment”. 1.2.1. specific support goal “To increase Investments of Private Sector in R&D” ; measure “Support for Improvement of Technology Transfer System”

Project “Automated railway level crossing control system” Nr. KC-PI-2020/14

Agreement with Investment and Development Agency about participating in Technology Transfer measure Nr. KC-L-2017/14

Project goal – prepare for commercialisation  Automated railway level crossing control system to provide safe and secure crossing process and significantly diminish possibility of accidents on level crossings.

Technical solution is based on FMCW radar technology, this technology allow to detect movement direction and velocity of different objects on large ranges with high precision. Usage of several  transmitters, receivers and antennas combinations allow to measure movement angle tie-up to radar and get information about object’s size, location and movement speed.

Total financing of project: up to 27 777.00 EUR, included ERDF financing up to 25 000.00 EUR.

In the period from 01.07.2020. until 30.09.2020. the team was working on the preparation, finalization, formatting and translation of the Feasibility Study. An action plan for commercialization activities was also developed, a project budget was drawn up and cash flow was planned for the project implementation period. Different commercialization models were also analyzed, and their economic rationale assessed.

In-depth market research, collection of feedback from potential users and communication with potential licensees of project results were carried out. Different types of intellectual property protection were also considered and a strategy for their implementation was outlined.

All deliverables planned in the project and their translations have been submitted within the deadline set by LIAA.
