The ambition of PRYSTINE is to strengthen and to extend traditional core competencies of the European industry, research and universities in smart mobility and in particular the electronic component and systems and cyber-physical systems domains. PRYSTINE's target is to realize Fail-operational Urban Surround perceptION (FUSION) which is based on robust Radar and LiDAR sensor fusion and control functions in order to enable safe automated driving in urban and rural environments. Therefore, PRYSTINE's high-level goals are:1. Enhanced reliability and performance, reduced cost and power of FUSION components2. Dependable embedded control by co-integration of signal processing and AI approaches for FUSION3. Optimized E/E architecture enabling FUSION-based automated vehicles4. Fail-operational systems for urban and rural environments based on FUSIONPRYSTINE will deliver (a) fail-operational sensor-fusion framework on component level, (b) dependable embedded E/E architectures, and (c) safety compliant integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches for object recognition, scene understanding, and decision making within automotive applications. The resulting reference FUSION hardware/software architectures and reliable components for autonomous systems will be validated in in 22 industrial demonstrators, such as:1. Fail-operational autonomous driving platform2. An electrical and highly automated commercial truck equipped with new FUSION components (such as LiDAR, Radar, camera systems, safety controllers) for advanced perception3. Highly connected passenger car anticipating traffic situations4. Sensor fusion in human-machine interfaces for fail-operational control transition in highly automated vehiclesPRYSTINEs well-balanced, value chain oriented consortium, is composed of 60 project partners from 14 different European and non-European countries, including leading automotive OEMs, semiconductor companies, technology partners, and research institutes.

The aim of this project is to boost the knowledge, expertise and international contact-network of the young outgoing researcher in the field of systems and control, in order to foster his career and to support him in the development of stable, high-quality research and technology transfer activities at the return host, thus contributing to strengthen the research and development system at local, national and European levels. This aim will be pursued primarily via a structured three-years long program involving both theoretical and applicative, interdisciplinary research at the outgoing and return host organizations. Innovative robust control methodologies, able to cope with constrained, distributed and highly nonlinear processes, will be investigated during the two-years stay at the Center for Control, Dynamical systems and Computation of the University of California Santa Barbara, widely recognized as one of the world best research groups in this field. Such advanced control design techniques will be coupled with the innovative data-driven identification and estimation methods that the Complex Systems Modeling and Control group of Politecnico di Torino, the return host organization, has been investigating during the past 30 years, thus becoming a center of excellence in these topics. The expected theoretical outcome will be an organized set of methodologies that encompasses and links identification, estimation and control for complex uncertain systems. Among the numerous fields where such innovative techniques could be employed, the application to renewable and sustainable energy technologies will be pursued because of their actual critical importance, their relevance in the EU research roadmap and the personal interest of the researcher. In particular, the challenging problem of control of electric power grids that connect diverse kinds of generators and the breakthrough technology of high-altitude wind power using controlled airfoils will be deeply investigated.
