ITEA Smart Systems Engineering workshop provides valuable insights in challenges and possible future research topics


ITEA Smart Systems Engineering workshop

On 7 April 2022, ITEA - in collaboration with NXP - organised the online ITEA Smart Systems Engineering workshop to assess the research challenges and opportunities of the latest developments and innovations in Smart Systems Engineering. Over 120 researchers, (future) project leaders and developers from several disciplines registered for the workshop. The objectives of the workshop were to increase the understanding of problems of smart systems engineering, to benefit from the experience of ITEA project partners and to identify important challenges that could lead to new research projects.

This one-day workshop was structured in three interactive sessions on the 1) - Complexity of applications, 2) - Standardisation and 3) - AI application development – DataOps versus DevOps. Experts from Almende, Arlerion Technologies, Bosch, Daimler, Fraunhofer, Nokia, NXP, Philips, Siemens, Software AG, the University of Helsinki and Virtual Vehicle Research shared their insights, and the online attendees had the opportunity to join the discussion.

The summaries and outcomes of the discussions of each session are presented in the ITEA Smart Systems Engineering workshop report intended to signal the areas of smart systems engineering where breakthroughs are needed, and research efforts could be focused. The workshop provided a strong basis for future ideas that can lead to innovative and business-oriented project proposals.

“During this workshop, experts from the ITEA community proposed very interesting ideas. We hope it will generate new projects that will strongly contribute to the progresses of the field of Smart System Engineering.”
- ITEA Vice-chairman Jean-François Lavignon
