The ultimate goal of the ACROSS project is to create a Centre of Research Excellence for Advanced Cooperative Systems at UNIZG-FER, which will be at the forefront of research and development of novel methodologies and advanced engineering approaches for cooperative systems.

Cooperative systems are systems that consist of individual entities that jointly strive to reach a common goal, which involves sensing or controlling of devices, and are dynamically and loosely federated for cooperation. Cooperative systems extend the capabilities of single systems to carry out tasks requiring cooperative skills. Possible applications of advanced cooperative systems are numerous: advanced flexible manufacturing, renewable and sustainable energy, home and office automation, transport, logistics, environmental monitoring, healthcare, security and surveillance, human augmentation etc.

The research activities of the Centre will focus on four major Strategic Research Domains (SRDs):

  • SRD1 - Cooperative Cognitive and Robotic Systems,
  • SRD2 - Cooperative Networked Embedded Systems,
  • SRD3 - Cooperative Renewable Energy Systems,
  • SRD4 - Cooperative Control Methods.

The first three strategic research domains are application-oriented and are among major pillars of the UNIZG-FER’s R&D strategy, as their potential for national economic and societal development has been recognised. The research in the fourth strategic research domain is of paramount importance for advanced cooperative systems in general, as a fundamental enabling technology.



ACROSS project has received research funding from the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union (Grant Agreement No. 285939 FP7-REGPOT-2011-1).
