Parque Tecnológico de Miñano
On 27 December 2019, the monitoring environment was successfully installed in the facilities of the Technology Park of Miñano, Vitoria (Spain).
The company Tecsa and the University of Burgos, in collaboration with the service company Bjäland have started the monitoring of the third Demo-Site of the LIFE-REPOLYUSE Project in the facilities of the Technology Park of Miñano in Vitoria (Spain). During 12 months, environmental parameters related to humidity and temperature of several spaces in the building will be collected, monitoring areas with “standard” false ceilings and areas with “LIFE REPOLYUSE” false ceilings, with the aim of simultaneously comparing the comfort conditions in the spaces built with the two sorts of materials.
An innovative sensor platform
Within the scope of the project, work is being done on an innovative sensorization platform. One of the Eight Technologies that are part of the revolution that is taking place in Industry 4.0 is the Internet of Things, in this case the Internet of Industrial Things or IIoT.
From The University of Burgos, together with the company Bjäland Services, different technologies have been integrated to have in active the collection of data from 3 Pilots (Demo-Site) of environmental monitoring supported by different solutions. On the one hand, a “stand alone solution like OMNISENSE that provides in SAS (Software As a Service) a monitoring and data collection solution used in the Demo-Site of the University of Burgos (Spain) and in the University of Coventry (United Kingdom) and on the other hand, a customized solution in the Demo-Site of the Technology Park in Miñano, Vitoria (Spain) implemented with the latest technologies: a sensor network integration with proximity communication technologies with a high signal penetration and low consumption (the pilot will work during the whole period autonomously), these communications between the sensors are linked through a mobile machine-to-machine (M2M) communication network, against a cloud server on the latest Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies. A proprietary UBU server has been developed on this cloud server. It consists of an IIoT Communications Server, which collects all the sensor data, making the information available in real time.
In the next dates, it is foreseen, the integration of the information of the three Demos in this unique server, with the complexity that entails having different technologies from the communication layer, communication protocols and data collection. Work is also being done on the design of a module for analysing and exploiting the data, so that with the large volume of information collected, a protocol can be established using Big Data technology (large volume of data and in real time), another of those technologies framed within Industry 4.0, so that with context variables, such as outside temperature and humidity, it will be possible to analyse and draw conclusions on the energy behaviour of the new materials in relation to the comfort of the monitored spaces.
