ADVANTICSYS is a high-tech SME which has an important background in information and communication
technologies specializing in the field of wireless sensor networks (WSN) and other remote monitoring
systems. Main application targets are in the field of energy efficiency, environment monitoring, and
automation. Thanks to its solid technological background in WSN, its collaboration network (including Asia
and Latin America), and its highly skilled multidisciplinary professionals it is capable of offering its clients
competitive and effective technological solutions in more than 30 countries.
It also participates in R&D projects at National and European level in different areas such as: Internet of
things (including cutting-edge technologies such as 6LowPAN, RFID and others), IEEE 802.15.4-based
wireless sensor networks and innovative ICT solutions, including environmental monitoring applications.
Currently is participating in the following European Projects:
FP7 - GREENERBUILDINGS: WSNs applied to context-based algorithms for reducing energy consumption in buildings.
FP7 - INTASENSE: WSNs applied to air quality monitoring in buildings.
ARTEMIS - ENCOURAGE: WSNs applied to energy consumption monitoring in buildings.
Furthermore, ADVANTIC participates in the standardization committee ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG 7: Working Group on Sensor Networks, and takes part in the following National and European Technology Platforms: NESSI, PROMETEO, EMOV and MANUFUTURE-E.
Role in the project: ADV will be WP4 leader and it will be mainly focused on the Underground Mining Safety application scenario implementation.
Experience: Within its participation in the FP7 GREENERBUILDINGS project, ADV has implemented location-based WSN applications addressing building automation strategies. Moreover, ADV has deployed hybrid RFID and WSN infrastructures for tracking staff and machinery in tunnels under construction.
