ACIO

ACCESS CONTROL IN ORGANIZATIONS

ACIO project aims to enhance and unify physical and logical access control of people, vehicles and goods in organizations from the usability and security perspectives, combining several mechanisms, as innovative identification and authentication technologies, tracking of vehicles and goods in transit within restricted areas for detecting anomalous behaviors or roles and capabilities management in a dynamic way. It will permit to improve the efficiency and fluency of a real time access control and monitoring, making use of internal information of the organization in addition to other external systems.
ACIO proposes the implementation of contextual access control systems which adapt the level and security mechanisms to the particular conditions of each environment.
Project funded by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism (MINETUR), in the Plan of Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation 2013-2016 (TSI-100201-2013-50), and labelled by Celtic-Plus.

PLECTRA

ECO-EFFICIENT PLANNING SYSTEM OF THE REAL TIME TRAFFIC APPLIED TO THE PORT INLAND TRANSPORT

PLECTRA project aims to develop a real-time information system which permit inland transport companies a traffic optimum planning of its vehicle fleet.
PLECTRA develops and provides traffic optimization algorithms and tools, an environmental accounting tool, a monitoring alerts and indicators system and an information system to publish and share information of the trips with business partners and other agents of the supply chain in order to they have a real-time view of the trips state.
Project funded by the Business Competitiveness Valencian Institute (IVACE) and co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

FLEET ON LAN

ON BOARD COMMUNICATIONS INTELLIGENT SYSTEM FOR FLEET OPTIMIZATION IN PORT INLAND TRANSPORT COMPANIES

FLEET ON LAN project aims to develop a new minimum cost technological solution to automate and optimize the fleet management and operation of a containers’ inland transport company.
FLET ON LAN develops a transport management application to process orders, manage the traffic, send and print documents in vehicles and invoice the carried out trips. Moreover, it’s implemented a Gateway VAN device, which is an embarked device that turns the vehicle into a local network node of the company, and a monitoring tool that permits the remote maintenance and management of the embarked Gateway VAN devices network.
Project funded by the Spanish Government’s Plan Avanza 2010.

SECURYLINK

PLATFORM FOR MONITORING AND SUPPLY CHAIN REAL TIME RISK MANAGEMENT

SECURYLINK project aims to improve the security of supply chain processes by means of the development of a real-time risk management and monitoring platform of the value chain for the security management process.
SECURYLINK designs the engine of real-time risks analysis and the process simulator and provides a Security Management System model based on ISO 28000. Moreover, SECURYLINK develops the monitoring system of real-time supply chain processes and an active dashboard to control the key performance and risk indicators.
Project approved by the regional Industrial Department of the Valencian Government.

AST*RISK

ADVANCED PLATFORM FOR SUPPLY CHAIN REAL TIME RISK MANAGEMENT

AST*RISK project aims to develop and exploit the platform for real-time risk management of the supply chain.
AST*RISK outcomes permit to reduce the response times if an incident happens at any point of a supply chain, and decrease the number of noncompliances. Another important achievement is the creation of a Comprehensive Security Center so that any agent can manage the security of its supply chain.
Project funded by the Spanish Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI).

TIMI

INTERMODAL GOODS INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT

TIMI project aims to contribute to the sustainable inter-modality and the security of the freight transport in the different means.

TIMI outcomes permit to increase the efficiency and quality of the systems and services of intermodal freight transport, boosting safety and security of goods and people, reducing the lack of tracking control in transport chains involving many users, promoting the use of alternative means of transport to the road (especially rail and Short Sea Shipping) and a sustainable transport system from an economic, social and environmental point of view.

Project funded by the Spanish Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), as a part of the CENIT program.
