The first newsletter of the MINIMA Project is available. It summarizes the work and progress within the first six month of MINIMA. Specifically it reports, about the Kick-Off Meeting, the State of the Art Review and the concept development. Important events for the MINIMA Projects were the poster presentation of first results at the SESAR Innovation Days and the 1st MINIMA Advisory Board meeting.
The first meeting of the MINIMA ADVISORY BOARD has taken place at the Aerospace Engineering Faculty of TU Delft on November 10th. A group of research experts and stakeholders has been presented with the main objectives of the project and with its first achievements. The Advisory Board has been planned in order to collect precious observations with regard these aspects. Both a silent and a loud brainstorming have been performed. Risks and potentials of the project have been highlighted and discussed with the consortium members by the participants in a really proactive session. The next ADVISORY BOARD will be held next year in order to verify that the development phase will be meeting the objectives in the best possible way. The MINIMA Consortium Team is really grateful to the participants of the meeting.
The State-of-the-Art Review (D1.1) was completed on August, 31. The full document can also be found in the documents section. In this document, we carefully defined the concept of OOTL and reviewed the different works associated. We also investigated current solutions proposed to mitigate its effect. Finally, we proposed a review of the different markers associated to vigilance decrement, one of the main illustration of the OOTL phenomenon. We particularly focused on biological markers as basement for future development of our vigilance/attentional observer. Documents regarded ethical requirements have also been completed and a final version of our Project Management Plan was delivered.
On May 2nd and May 3rd, all project partners met at the DLR site in Braunschweig (SJU via WebEx) for the MINIMA Kick-off Meeting to discuss initial project activities.
