Description: School on Cloud is an ICT network funded by the European Union Lifelong Learning program that focuses on the impact of the Cloud and apps on education. The Network explores the new dynamic ways to educate that aligns with the way we think, share, learn and collaborate outside of the classroom, across various education sectors. The Network aims to have considerable impact through the work of four interrelated thematic working groups: (i) Transition from ground to Cloud; (ii) i-Teacher: innovative teacher; (iii) Integrating the Cloud and personalisation in formal and informal education; and (iv) Future perspectives.
Indoor positioning and navigation
The focus is on the development of an infrastructure-less system that performs indoor positioning, route generation and exchange via a cloud infrastructure, and indoor navigation with focus on accessibility and the visually impaired.
This is a multistage project. During the first stage we have generated a database of activities. During the second stage we will develop activity classifiers.
Blackspot detection on the road network
We develop a crowdsourcing application in order to gather user data regarding dangerous points on the road network. These will be evaluated against actual accidents in order to relate human perception to reality.
