Smart Systems

Systems capable of predicting, deciding or helping to make decisions based on surrounding stimuli

The Smart Systems department is based on three pillars of competence, Hardware, Software and Firmware that sustain the knowledge for the research and development of electronic microsystems for several applications and functionalities.

The integration of these devices comprises flexible structures such as: textile, paper, leather, polymers and wood, and rigid structures such as: concrete, agglomerates, polymers and stone.

Health and well-being, sports, automobile and aeronautics, protection, construction, agriculture and industry, covering products and processes, are some of the highlighted application areas.

Technically, the Smart Systems department investigates, designs and develops sensing, acquisition, processing, actuation, communication, and storage solutions, and Cloud based and mobile applications.

We boost electronic systems with sensory perception using pressure, stretch, capacitive, inductive, MEMs, IR, light, humidity, temperature, UV, noise, touch and touchless, radar, pH and rain sensors, among others. In the processing, microcontrollers of 8, 16 and 32 bits are applied at the level of embedded hardware and microcomputers for processing larger volumes of data, transmitted over wired communications, CAN, Ethernet, I2C, RS232, RS485, or wireless, Wi-Fi, BLE 5.0, ZigBee, RF, NBIOT, LORA, MIWI. The actuation systems are distinguished between warning and execution systems such as: lighting, sound, motor, heating, cooling, and different types of drivers are developed for each system and power to act.

Software development includes the implementation of local applications for different frameworks in order to view and interact with sensor systems, web application development (front-end and back-end) together with Cloud solutions for remote storage and processing, and mobile applications with algorithms that promote the learning and intelligence of the systems, adapting to the sensorial stimuli.

These intelligent systems are an evolution of the electronic systems, with the aim of providing systems with autonomy in the execution of their tasks. The research and development of these systems combine technologies and components such as: electrical, mechanical, optical, chemical and fluidic devices, along with areas such as bioengineering, chemistry, physics, nanosciences and materials, in pursuit of this goal.

They combine:

Technologies: Electrical, Mechanical, Optical, Chemical and Fluid;

Areas: Bioengineering, Chemistry, Physics, Nanosciences, Materials, Robotics, IOT; Industry 4.0; Automation; Cognitive Sciences;
