Applied Research & Development Projects

The European project BIOSMART aims to develop active and smart bio-based and compostable packages that make possible: light weighting, reduced food residues, shelf life monitoring, longer shelf life and easier consumer waste handling.
The AINews project aims to provide intelligent conversational agent technologies that support the digital transformation of the press. These technologies will help make the information channel dynamic through dialogues, retain readers through content customization and optimize editorial directions through maps of interests on common topics.
In this project, iCoSys is specifically interested in the analysis and development of versatile approaches for the detection of abnormal events using machine learning approaches (WP5).
TFC is a distributed application development framework, based on POP-Java. It allows developers to develop decentralized applications in which the users can share computing power and data in a secure manner. The connection between the different users of the software is made in a way similar to social networks, allowing users to create communities around certain applications.
BBDATA stands for Big Building Data and aims at developing a scalable cloud platform and tools for storing and processing smart building data. The services are targeting data access, processing and analysis, using open, robust, standardized and secured big data technologies.
Process4Plastics (P4P) aims to build a dedicated methodology of process engineering for the production of plastics parts. In the industry 4.0 era, machines will be equipped with many sensors and actuators and be connected together to create intelligent networks.
The availability of low-cost sensors covering a whole city offers new perspectives in terms of research and development. Urban Pulse aims at offering an integrated solution allowing capture, storage and processing of urban signals to the iNUIT program and HES-SO researchers.
DAPLAB aims at facilitating the access for enterprises and universities to emerging technologies in the area of big data and intelligent data analysis by managing an infrastructure composed of cluster of servers dedicated to storage and computation, to which universities and local companies will have access.
The CityPulse project aims to offer a live, localized and continuous measurement of the city through the installation of a network of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors.
Tactical Ad-hoc networK Emulation aims to conceive, develop and implement algorithms to deploy reliable tactical applications over ad-hoc networks for Armasuisse.
SENSIMED AG has developed Triggerfish, a wearable non-invasive solution to monitor continuously intra-ocular pressure (IOP). The purpose of the Sensimed Diagnosis project is to analyze, design and implement signal processing, feature extraction and pattern recognition tools to exploit the signals monitored by the Triggerfish.
With a focus on complex systems, iCoSys approaches the different challenges of DNA analysis with its expertise in various techniques acquired in the different domains of computer science.
VideoProtector is an innovative solution to manage cameras streams in a central place. This centralization offers also the possibility to run incident detection algorithms in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) mode.
The iFloor project aims at developing intelligent floors able to detect, localize and track persons in indoors environment. It relies on low-cost sensors integrated in the material of the floor.
GreenMod aims at providing a framework easing the development of building management systems on top of Web technologies.
The idea of the project is to leverage on large sets of linguistic data and on machine learning algorithms able to discover automatically pronunciation rules. Such rules are then used in “symbolic mappers” able to transform a grapheme representation into a phonetic representation and to propose probable alterations of the pronunciation. The mappers are then used to propose clients with new domain names that sound similar to their original search.
Low-cost charging station. One of the goal of the ePark – Electric Park System project was to build a low-cost charging station offering similar functionalities but leveraging on the emergence of cheap machine-to-machine communication nodes.
ePark – Intelligent Parking System is a web service allowing drivers to be directed towards parking locations maximizing the probability to find a free parking space.
The ePark project has investigated ways to make the different charging station Information Systems interoperable (IS).
Swiss Academic Compute Cloud (SwissACC) is an short project which complement the SMSCG project. The project provides a range of services and know-how from over 10 AAA/SWITCH projects. The 14 SwissACC partners work on two main objectives: sustaining and preserving the research communities of the former AAA/SWITCH grid projects, and increasing user and usage numbers. The project focuses on consolidating the services and simplifying the procedures that have been created to support Swiss communities. Its main goal is to free researchers from complex computational aspects of their research so they can focus on their core work.
The primary goal of the project SMSCG (Swiss Multi-Science Computing Grid) is to provide computational resources to solve scientific computational problems. This involves the installation, commissioning and operation of a computational grid across several institutions of the Swiss higher education sector with active involvement of applications from different scientific domains.
