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 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 and is currently re-investing in state of the art RFID hardware
Wearables and Therapeutic Devices
Wwhether tracking the performance of elite or amature athletes in a variety of sporting environments, monitoring their recovery after injury or gathering data to support the development of bespoke therapies, IMaR provides the electronic and software to realise prototype smart devices.
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 posseses 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 approaches.
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 Internet of Things represents internet-connected devices such as smartphones, TV’s and wearables which we use everyday. IMaR develops IoT solutions for enterprises in all sectors, including manufacturing, agriculture, healthcare, retail and professional services. Such solutions in manufacturing enable oganisations to increase operational efficiencies and become more flexible and agile – the so-called ‘Smart Factory’ concept at the core of Industry 4.0.
