Critical Software presents Wireless Sensor Networks project at EMMON Open Day 2012
4 Jun 2012
Critical Software has presented at the EMMON Open Day event, held on May 29th, 2012 that took place at the Business and Technology Centre of São João da Madeira “Parque de Ciência e Tecnologia – SANJOTEC”, the results of the European EMMON project that took three years of Research & Development (R&D) in a real environment in terms of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN).
During this event DEMMON2 was presented, which is a real-time, continuous environmental monitoring application consisting of a Wireless Sensor Network of +400 devices (1200 sensors). This network was spread over several floors/levels, and complemented by thousands of virtual nodes (emulating the real devices) to prove the scalability, robustness and ability of technology to monitor large areas and buildings with high density. This was one of the largest Wireless Sensor Networks in Europe for R&D purposes (in a single site).
EMMON (www.artemis-emmon.eu) is a Research & Development (R&D) project, funded by the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) and Member States, as an initiative of the ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking (ARTEMIS JU). The project is led by Critical Software (Portugal), with several partners, Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto - (by CISTER Research Unit), IPP-ISEP (Portugal), InteSys (UK), Centro de Estudios e Investigaciones Tecnicas de Gipuzkoa (Spain), Critical Software Technologies (UK), Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), SESM Scarl (Italy), and Akting Ingeniaritza and SL (Spain). The project lasts for three years involving nine partners from six European countries.
