ECOGEM – An innovative Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) for electric vehicles aiming at sustainable mobility

ECOGEM is an integrated intelligence and learning functionalities approach towards on-board systems for fully electric vehicles (FEVs). This allows these vehicles reaching their destination via energy efficient itineraries while considering in real-time technical and surrounding features (i.e. battery level, traffic, available charging points, etc.). 

DiGeSPO – micro Combined Heat and Power Innovative compact devices for residential and commercial buildings

DiGeSPO has developed a small thermodynamic solar system based on innovative concentrated solar power (CSP) and Stirling engine technologies. The resulting device aims at providing electrical power, heating and cooling for houses as well as residential and commercial buildings. Also, the system will be integrated in an architecturally acceptable manner and with low visual impact.

RFID technology improves the forestry value chain

Using RFID technology to keep track of different characteristics of incoming logs in sawmills will reduce the amount of processing waste and reduce workload.  As raw material is a big share of operating costs of sawmills, the new RFID system can help improve process efficiency.

Making organic growers’ sustainability efforts visible to consumers through online tracking system

Eosta both manages and supplies sustainably grown organic food products in the Netherlands. Established 22 years ago, Eosta created an innovative marketing system to promote organic food markets in the country. The projects’ success is due to its sustainability flower model, designed to evaluate and communicate the achievements of organic growers.   

SENSORGAN

Based on the need to find measures to protect historical organs, the SENSORGAN project (Sensor system for detection of harmful environments for pipe organs) has developed an automatized and remote sensing system. Church organs are large and complex pieces containing several different types of materials. Various types of wood, leather, brass, iron and pipe metals put together a sensitive combination when it comes to changes in the indoor environment. Each of the organ parts responds differently to a change in the indoor climate of the church and under certain microclimatic conditions, the organ parts will be harmed and it might be unplayable.

FING-ART-PRINT

The goal of the FING-ART-PRINT Project is to develop a system to easily create a “finger print” of art and cultural heritage objects, as an effective way for identifying and tracking important works when on loan, in transport, or in situations of theft or illegal trafficking.

VIROCLIME

VIROCLIME addresses key issues at the interface between virology, climate change and water quality regulation.  The project makes use of hydrological modelling to determine the effects of climate changes on the variation in viral fluxes.  It focusses on risk associated with viruses for managing water-related diseases (e.g. drinking water and recreational bathing water).
