IMaR partner on INTERREG North-West Europe project which aims to improve resource efficiency of agribusiness supply chains by minimising waste using Big Data and Internet of Things sensors.
IMaR secures funding for Industry Partners
IMaR, The Intelligent Mechatronics & RFID Technology Gateway at IT Tralee, in collaboration with Kostal Ireland in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick and Astellas Ireland, in Killorglin, Co. Kerry. secure 1/2 million of Enterprise Ireland funding.
Mechatronics is a merging of a combination of Engineering disciplines (Mechanical, Electronic and Software) to address the needs of ever increasing automated production environments. It aims to integrate and enhance automation across a variety of industry sectors via the integration of sensors, electronics and computed control.
Radio Frequency Identification or RFID involves the use of electronic tags for Identification of objects or things. IMaR has been at the forefront of RFID since 2004. IMaR are represented on the Management Board of the RFID in Europe network and the only Irish core partner in the project.
Reality mining is an upcoming paradigm which involves "the collection and analysis of machine-sensed environmental data pertaining to human social behaviour, with the goal to identify predictable patterns of (future) human behaviour" or in simple words it is the extraction of useful information from real world (sensor) data.
IMaR posses expertise and experience of using machine learning techniques such as Neural Networks and Support Vector Machines in various application domains. These techniques can solve problems that are not easily addressed by traditional modelling.
The Irish Systems and Signals Conference 2016
Trevor Murphy presents at the 27th annual “Irish Systems and Signals Conference” (ISSC 2016) in the University of Ulster, Derry, Northern Ireland.
Internet of Things
The term Internet of Things originated from the idea of Radio Frequency Identification Tags (RFID) in every object, allowing these objects to be firstly identified and then possibly located. IMaR is a member of the IoT European Research Cluster and the Future Internet Assembly.
