What is Acte?

ACTE is a 3 years project funded by ANSES and which joined 5 partners: Orange, Telecom ParisTech, Telecom Bretagne, PHE and CATR.
The project began in 2013 and will last 3 years.
The main goal of the project is to analyse the exposure of new-born and very young kids to RF EMF from LTE wireless systems.

The ambitious objectives of the ACTE project are:
    • Develop new RF LTE sources
    • Develop new-born models and very young kid models based on Magnetic Resonance  images that can be used in numerical dosimetry
    • Develop new tools to deform 3D numerical models in order to create new postures taking into account different possible configurations encountered with new usages and new wireless technologies.
    • Assess the exposure in different configurations and analyze the influence of parameters like posture, frequency or tissue dielectric properties.
    • Characterize variability sources
ACTE is divided into 3 main tasks
    • TASK 1: configurations to cover, new LTE sources development
    • TASK 2: New-born and very young kids images segmentation, and new deformation tools development 
    • TASK 3: Exposure analysis and characterization of variability sources
