AMIRES is happy to share that the TINKER project has finally come to an end!

March 28

The EU Horizon 2020 project focused on the fabrication of LiDAR and RADAR sensor packages enabled by additive manufacturing technologies for autonomous driving. As the Dissemination and Exploitation Leader, AMIRES closely monitored the project’s developments and shared the highlights of its impact on the automotive sector. 

On the 19th and 20th of March 2024, the final meeting, hosted by Notion Systems at their headquarters in Schwetzingen, Germany, served as a platform for presenting the project’s tangible outcomes. Among these was the live demonstration of a 3D-printed radar sensor, showcasing the capabilities of Notion’s inkjet printer alongside UV-curable inks from TIGER Coatings and conductive inks from PV Nano Cell Ltd. The integration of a laser system by Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) facilitated the sintering process, resulting in a sensor poised to advance autonomous vehicle technology. Moreover, the partners presented the 3D technology On Chip LIDAR demonstrator, developed by CEA-Leti, in collaboration with Marelli

During this meeting, we had the opportunity to collect valuable feedback from our Project Officer and Technical Reviewer on the project’s results. 

It has been a pleasure to work with TINKER’s consortium, with which AMIRES shares the best wishes to collaborate in the near future.
