Annual agreement INRIA-SVS 2381 + contract 4329

SVS (Structural Vibration Solutions A/S) is a company located in Aalborg, Denmark, having strong connections with the Department of Civil Engineering of University of British Columbia, CA (Prof. Carlos Ventura).

SVS and I4S are investigating how to link the modal analysis software ARTeMIS of SVS and COSMAD. Through an annual agreement, I4S gets a license of ARTeMIS in exchange to offer support for integrating our damage detection software into SVS software and offerings. A contract has been signed, where I4S provides algorithms and expertise for integration within a damage detection structural health monitoring system and SVIBS does the implementation. This technology transfer has been funded by the ministry of transportation of British Columbia, Canada. The work is supervised by UBC, CA. The end product will be a web based structural health monitoring system for in operation bridges.

I4S is doing technology transfer towards SVS to implement I4S technologies into ARTEMIS Extractor Pro. This is done under a royalty agreement between INRIA and SVS . First achievements include the implementation of the so called Crystal Clear SSI, a subspace variant, with much lower signal to noise ratio, and whose interest in the mechanical engineering community is very high.This year, the merging algorithm [16] and the fast implementation of subspace methods [20] has been performed. Other I4S algorithms are currently under review to be integrated within ARTEMIS. SVS and I4S are also related in the related IAPP ISMS and the SIMS project.
