05/10/2018 – The technical and innovation department of COMSA Industrial will research the implementation of intelligent environments based on Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in non residential buildings with the aim of automating its maintenance and limiting its energy costs.
This research, which COMSA Industrial is carrying out with the Leitat technology centre, falls within the National Business Research Consortium (CIEN is the acronym in Spanish) program where eight companies and five technology organisations come together to create tools and systems aimed at automating and optimising the operation, maintenance and inspection of equipment.
In this regard, COMSA Industrial and Leitat will develop loT network nodes for controlling the air, water and electrical installations of buildings. Simultaneously, the engineering department will design a system to collect the primary parameters (temperature, humidity, light level, noise, etc.) for the purpose of establishing measures for a more accurate preventive maintenance and improve the energy efficiency and environmental quality of building equipment.
All in all, the CIEN programme has a budget of six million Euros for a 4 year-period. Its mission is to get closer to the market new services and products aimed at increasing the automation and competitiveness of the industry in line with sustainability and respect for the environment criteria.
