Enterprise Computing

SMEs Digital Transformation

Focused on the digital transformation of society, we investigate business models, strategies, products, services and organisational processes in order to enhance the opportunities created by new digital technologies.

As there is not yet a comprehensive framework for digital transformation, INOV carries out applied research to develop a framework that supports this transformation in public organisations and SMEs.

We aim to create a framework with an open research approach in which any Portuguese company or public organisation can participate.

Cyber-physical Systems

  • Development of applications using FPGA and ASIC
  • FPGA software development
  • Reprogrammable mixed hardware applications (analog and digital)
  • Embedded system solutions for remote sensing with local decision making
  • Sensing and information collection for industrial equipment (Industry 4.0)
  • IoT protocols for various applications
  • Communications to support remote monitoring and IoT

Remote Monitoring

  • Automatic event detection (e.g. forest fires)
  • Detection of vehicles and people in safety areas
  • Object classification and detection
  • Hyper-spectral analysis sensors with applicability in ​​agriculture and agribusiness, and in ​​health for non-intrusive sensing
  • Solutions for industrial application and long-distance laser signal control and correction algorithms
