We do

  • Sensor networks design
  • Development of unique and complete sensor systems, including the processing of signal and data
  • Electronic and control elements/instrumentation proposal
  • Modeling and monitoring of building users’ long-term behavior in relation to a mathematical model and its effects to the appropriate management of the HVAC systems (creation and identification of the model)
  • Long-term nondestructive diagnostics of structures for diverse materials
  • Database systems - data storage and data presenting of buildings or industrial processes
  • Implementation of systems that adapt the energy consumption according to the actual state and price of the grid or renewable sources available
  • Solar hybrid power systems design and construction
  • Predictive control systems proposal combining intelligent energy storage and use
  • Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) inspection of building sites, search for cavities and cracks, archeological research, etc.
  • Thermal performance diagnostics of buildings through advanced Thermal Imaging Technology
  • Power losses identification of machines or other components via Magnetic Scanning (magnetic survey)

Instrumentation

  • Laboratory for the design, implementation and debugging of electronic and sensor systems
  • 3D printing press center - for functional samples, packaging of electronic and electromechanical components
  • GPR - Ground Penetrating Radar to inspect building elements, archaeological survey, search of communications cabling, search of cavities, etc.
  • Thermal imaging camera – precise thermal imaging system for monitoring equipment heat flow, biological processes, inspection of building envelopes, etc.
  • Equipment set for diagnosing and building inspecting
  • Hybrid Solar System for the development of systems which optimize the energy performance of buildings
  • Equipment set for the development of sensors based on optical FBG (fiber Bragg grating)
