Road congestion in cities reduces mobility. An EU-funded project integrated multiple sources of data to improve urban traffic flows, with the active engagement of citizens, to deliver tools to achieve more efficient and cleaner transportation. Road congestion and the difficulty of finding parking spaces impede people’s mobility and slow down the delivery of goods and services. Large amounts of data from diverse sources could help provide solutions for better planning and management of urban ...

A robot inspired by the movements of cockroaches and lizards has been developed by researchers at Ben-Gurion University to travel at high speeds on difficult terrain and in water. AmphiSTAR is a wheeled robot fitted with four propellers underneath and axes that can be titled using a sprawl mechanism. The propellers act both as wheels over ground and as fins to propel the robot over water, swimming and running on water at speeds of 1.5m/s. Featuring two air tanks, the robot can float, hover ...

A team from the Diverfarming project has shown the efficacy of sustainable management of the soil in avoiding erosion and runoff, above all in intense rainfall events. The desert is making inroads into the Mediterranean area. The loss of soil produced by erosion and runoff is being aggravated by a semi-arid climate in which the majority of the annual precipitation falls in very few intense rainfall events that drag the land even more. Taking into account that, according to the National Inventory...

A Paris-based research team has developed a capsule to swallow that will produce images and 3D maps of the intestine. A new era is dawning in colorectal cancer screening. Undergoing a colonoscopy under anaesthetic is certainly not much fun, so to spare their patients the discomfort, physicians will soon be able to give them a small technological miracle to swallow: an endoscopic capsule equipped with a camera and 3D imaging system. The size of a large olive, this autonomous probe called Cyclope...

New rules for using EU regional funding for near-market research will put poorer countries with limited human capital and less advanced infrastructures at a disadvantage, universities are warning, as the European Commission moves ahead with plans to ensure member states use regional development money for translation and commercialisation of research. Currently, universities in countries with less-developed research systems depend on EU regional funds to support basic science and to hire top-...

Once the crops are planted, grown and harvested, many agricultural facilities sit unused. But converting them into bioproduction plants could extend their activity year-round - meaning more money for farmers and agriculture-based industries. To help, an EU-funded project developed and demonstrated a range of potential bio-based products that could be produced at these newly converted facilities. As many European agricultural industries are tied to the seasonal availability of their primary ...
