Webinar on the AMANDA Autonomous Smart Sensing Card Available Online

On 17 May 2021, a successful webinar on the AMANDA Autonomous Smart Sensing Card was held. The aim of the AMANDA webinar was to present a general overview of the H2020 funded AMANDA project, emphasising the possibility and benefits of using the unique ASSC to help mitigate the effects of current and future pandemics.

The webinar provided participants with a better understanding of the significant advantages of the AMANDA card over the products on the market and presented where the card can be applicable – in the field of smart cities, smart homes and intelligent working environments.

The AMANDA webinar included three presentations and a very interesting and dynamic Q&A session. In the first presentation, Dr Charis Kouzinopoulos (CERTH) presented the AMANDA concept, main hardware and software components, and wireless communication capabilities of the ASSC. In the presentation that followed, Dr Denis Pasero (ILIKA) explained the three use cases identified in the AMANDA project and six scenarios that make optimal use of all the functionalities from the AMANDA card in its three versions – indoor, outdoor and wearable. In the third presentation, Prof. Dr Marcel Meli (ZHAW) focused on use cases related to air quality and COVID-19 and led an informative discussion on the AMANDA card – a powerful portable system as a monitoring companion.

Thirty-three participants joined the webinar, showing the business and scientific community’s great interest in EU research and innovation. For all those who did not have the opportunity to attend the AMANDA webinar, we are excited to announce that the recording is now available at the following link:
