Smart sensors for energy efficient cities.
What we offer:
A Spanish research group from Alcalá University has developed a smart-sensors-based technology that can be applied to improve the energy efficiency of urban environments in an holistic fashion. This technology covers areas such as Intelligent Transportation Systems and Energy Efficient Measurement applications.
In the context of transportation, innovative aspects come from the use of new sensors that provide richer information than current sensor technologies, as well as the novelty of the proposed applications.
On the other hand, the automatic creation of thermal efficiency digital maps has not been proposed up to now. These maps will be very useful for local authorities to improve the energy efficiency of their local communities.
This technology can be seen as an holistic system, or it can be offered in its different parts adapted to different needs.
What are we looking for:
The group is interested in establishing commercial or technical cooperation agreements with companies involved in urban traffic management or energy distribution and generation.
The type of collaboration sought implies the steps needed to adapt the technology to the needs and activities of the company that assumes its commercialisation. Likewise, it implies further technical engineering maintenance.
Among the companies that may have potential interest in this technology we remark companies that are responsible of the urban traffic management systems, such as the following: SICE, ETRA, Ferrovial, INDRA, etc. In addition, this may be of special interest for energy distribution and generation companies as well as companies that provide different thermal isolation solutions, such as the next companies: ACS, Dragados, FCC, Endesa, Iberdrola, etc. Finally, medium companies with a high degree of innovation may be interested in commercialising the proposed technologies.
The group is also interested in finding partners for R&D regional or nacional calls and european projects.
