GUIDE REGIO

In August 2019, the “Gründungen und Innopreneurship der Universität Duisburg-Essen” (GUIDE) center was established as part of the Science Support Center (SSC) to support the establishment of start-ups within the university. The center identifies the assets available within the university and offers access to a network of external partners in […]

InnaMoRuhr

In a multidisciplinary consortium of social, economic and engineering sciences, researchers from the three UA Ruhr universities are investigating the question of how the sustainability of mobility in the Ruhr area can be improved. Funded by the Ministry of Transport of NRW, the InnaMoRuhr project develops a concept for integrated […]

TALAKO

Taxi vehicles are particularly suitable for electrification due to their potentially long waiting periods at taxi stops. However, existing charging solutions for electric vehicles require taxi drivers to manually initiate and stop the charging process by connecting and disconnecting a charging cable to a charging station. This makes the use of […]

SMATA

Taxi vehicles are particularly suitable for electrification due to their potentially long waiting periods at taxi stops. During their waiting time, electric taxis can be optimally charged. Currently, however, taxi drivers are not sufficiently aware of the availability of charging possibilities in urban areas.In addition, there is no platform that […]

FAIR

Weather and climate information are the basis of planning and decisions, both in the private and in the public sector. Depending on the application, climate time series (retrospective) or forecasts (prognostic) are required. In the future, a further increase in interest in usage is to be expected here. Since mid-2017, […]

BESOS

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 hardly have capabilities to offer information and services […]

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 engaging […]

SMARTKYE

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 key indicators in neighbourhoods with the […]

GAMBAS

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 number of Europeans have constant access to […]

SEVERE

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 reduction lead to unreliable […]
