Concepts & Objectives

PINCETTE will develop the technology to ensure safe infrastructure upgrades by validating continuously evolving networked software systems. PINCETTE will 1) reduce the cost and time to market of upgrades by several orders of magnitude; 2) increase the level of confidence in the safety of upgrades; 3) enable certification of upgrades. The PINCETTE consortium is composed of the leading European research experts and prominent infrastructure providers. The PINCETTE technology will be validated at:

  • ABB produces and sells components and systems used in utility, industrial, and public transportation Infrastructures; A major share of the European power grid is built on ABB equipment.
  • VTT provides the monitoring and maintenance robot system for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER).
  • IAI operates autonomous aircrafts for environmental monitoring, deployed worldwide.
