This COMPORT project is a technological innovation initiative of Gaiastech, the innovation space of the Xunta de Galicia. It is also part of the Conecta Hubs 2021 program, funded by the Axencia Galega de Innovación (GAIN) and has the financial support of the European Union (co-financed by FEDER funds under the Feder Galicia 2014-2020 operational program). It also receives support from the Second Vice-Presidency and of the Department of Presidency, Justice and Sports of the Xunta de Galicia.
Situm, together with the partnership of companies formed by Quobis, Sixtema, Torusware and Edigal, has been developing the COMPORT project for more than a year. This project aims to develop an industrial software platform based on the Internet of Things paradigm for industry, enabling the optimization of industrial processes with real-time communications as a vehicle for informed and effective decision-making.
Data management through geospatial analytics
During this project, Situm evaluated and specified its use cases through joint and individualised meetings with the consortium participants. We collaborated especially with EDIGAL, visiting their facilities and analysing the daily fieldwork of the factory operators. In parallel, we have specified KPIs and designed user-friendly interfaces using rapid prototyping tools. In addition, Situm technology has been deployed and validated at Edigal’s facilities, making the data generated available to all members.
In collaboration with Dimensiona, we have developed a first geospatial analysis that allows us to calculate the use of each area of the factory and then correlate it with the expected uptake. This required working with large amounts of data. In collaboration with Prefapp, we have used state-of-the-art tools for ingesting, processing, and analyzing massive data in real time.
Finally, in cooperation with CITIC, we have made further progress on a tool that allows us to conduct different analyses to maintain the performance of a future localization system that is expected not to require calibration. Specifically, we are measuring the positioning convergence time and error, which is critical for the new system to operate properly in these environments. A first test database is also being built to test the performance of the systems developed during the project.
For the remainder of the project, Situm will continue to work on improving the location system adapted to industrial environments, with an emphasis on data generation and analytics to improve the efficiency of industrial processes.
