The development and implementation of intelligent technology solutions promote an urban area to a self-contained system in terms of ICT.
The energy-efficient, intelligent outdoor lighting management and monitoring system is based on wireless personal area networks that support IP technology and “Internet of Things” concept. The system operates at a low level of lighting until vehicle or pedestrian motion is detected. Then, the level of lighting is increased for providing better visibility. Data regarding lamps and sensors are transferred to the management part of the system which can configure the operation based on a certain profile. The system can be easily installed over street lighting systems that use old and inefficient technologies without major cost thus, lowering energy consumption and can be act supportively to other communication services as part of a smart city.
Wireless Sensor Networking (WSN) solutions for Smart Cities are offered based on standards such as 802.15.4, 6LoWPAN and ZigBee along with cross-layer management and monitoring systems. The solutions provided are focused on the field of energy efficient and green technologies and public safety and address issues like energy, computation, communication, scalability, fault tolerance, and power consumption. Our expertise also includes WSN Integration with IP-backbone networks and optimization algorithms for energy efficiency and QoS provision regarding End-to-End communications over heterogeneous networks.
Efficient monitoring of a wide area can lead to prevention and defence which will save lives and keep safe critical infrastructures and information.
Solutions are provided for accessing the unmanned platforms (air/ground vehicles) using deployable long range communications networks. The choice of long range communications infrastructure is based to WiMAX and LTE due to their scalability, robustness and unhindered coverage in difficult areas, providing an environment for connection-oriented services. Additionally relay stations can be utilised in order extend the communication bubble and ensure excellent coverage and provision of high bandwidth per mobile usage.
The UAV platforms have become an active part of multimodal surveillance systems. Thus, their communication with the other parts of the surveillance system is essential. The solutions provided in terms of communication and data links are fast-deployed interoperable network infrastructures incorporating UAVs communication systems as well as development of data links for cooperative
networking of UxV swarms. Additionally, we have developed an autonomous flying robot for reconnaissance purposes equipped with lightweight sensors.
The use of multiple network-connected computers for data processing and service provision.
A universal secure cloud computing platform for critical infrastructures is developed.This platform supports services related to the monitoring, forecasting and decision making for protecting critical infrastructures (airports, railways, public buildings, hospitals, large computer rooms etc.).
User-centric multimedia services including archiving, indexing and searching as a set of distributed application suitable for deployment in distributed systems and cloud environment. This application can also become part of a surveillance system that receives video and image from cameras installed in mobile devices or fixed points.
