Projects


BESOS

Building Energy Decision Support Systems for Smart Cities Energy efficient Smart cities rely on highly heterogeneous already deployed infrastructure and services – e.g., public lighting system, urban heating system, public buildings, electric vehicles, micro-generation, residential prosumers, etc. All these systems are currently managed by isolated Energy Management Systems (EMS), that […]


SMART-ACTION

SMART-ACTION With the increasing miniaturization of communication devices and the proliferation of technologies such as smart phones or sensor networks, the concept of an Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming a reality, especially with their integration into Smart Cities. The interdisciplinary nature of IoT work requires understanding, coordinating, supporting and […]


SMARTKYE

Smart Grid Key Neighborhood Indicator Cockpit The strategic goal of the SmartKYE project is to develop a system for the future smart grid neighbourhood that will enable better business decisions to be made based on real-time fine-grained data. Key end-users targeted are the public authorities who can monitor and manage […]


GAMBAS

Generic Adaptive Middleware for Behavior-driven Autonomous Services The overall objective of the GAMBAS project is the development of an innovative and adaptive middleware to enable the privacy-preserving and automated utilization of behavior-driven services that adapt autonomously to the context of users. With the advent of powerful Internet-connected objects an increasing […]


SEVERE

Self-healing Networked Embedded Systems Increasingly more micro-computers are being embedded into everyday objects. Consumers are benefiting from this technology due to its wireless communication capabilities. However, for this vision to become a more pervasive reality, these embedded networked computers have to become not only smaller and cheaper, but they should also be low-maintenance. Unfortunately, miniaturization and cost […]


EC-SAFEMOBIL

Estimation and Control for Safe Wireless High Mobility Cooperative Industrial Systems Autonomous systems and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), can play an important role in many applications including disaster management, and the monitoring and measurement of events, such as the volcano ash cloud of April 2010. Currently, many missions cannot be […]


LIVING

Living++ Elderly people are often overwhelmed with the usage of current technical devices such as smart phones, for example. To counter this problem, the Living++ project aims at developing an intuitive platform to use such devices in an integrated manner that can be controlled remotely via a television. The Living++ […]


PLANET

Platform for the Deployment and Operation of Heterogeneous Networked Cooperating Objects Efficient deployment has been identified as one of the main problems for the acceptance of new technologies based on Cooperating Objects (COs). The goal of PLANET is to provide an integrated planning and maintenance platform that enables the deployment, […]


WEBDA

Web-based Services for Elderly People and their Families The goal of WEBDA is to enable elderly people suffering from dementia to stay at home independently for a longer period of time. To achieve this, the WEBDA project is developing novel services to train their cognitive abilities and to reduce the […]


NOBEL

Neighbourhood Oriented Brokerage ELectricity and monitoring system Europe and the rest of the world share common goals towards energy efficiency and sustainability. Improving energy efficiency addresses the key energy challenges of climate change, energy security and competitiveness. Distributed generation of energy coming from various vendors, even private homes, is a […]
