Dragonfly (UIDP/05567/2020/02)

logo Title: Implementation of a mobile robotic surface water quality monitoring system
Partners: CIMT
Researchers: Manuel Barros, Carlos Ferreira, Pedro Granchinho, Pedro Neves, Hugo Magalhães, Henrique Pinho
Date: 2020-06-01 - 2023-06-30
Status: ongoing

Description: The aim of the Dragonfly project is to implement enabling technologies for the deployment, and management of a cost-effective mobile remote sensing framework (or cyber physical system) for monitoring freshwater quality towards water reservoirs protection against pollution. The module is composed of several sub-systems optimized for the collection of relevant water quality data and its transmission in real time to a central monitoring and control unit. The data will make it possible to identify sources of contamination and its evolution, being, therefore, a decision-making tool to trigger environmental protection mechanisms and lead to the rapid identification of the origins of the problem(s) and their respective resolution.

H2-REnWaste (UIDP/05567/2020/01)

logo Title: Production of Hydrogen with Renewable Energy using Wastewater
Partners: CIMT
Researchers: Paulo Coelho, Mário Gomes, Henrique Pinho, José Fernandes, Valentim Nunes, Marco Cartaxo, Carlos Pereira
Date: 2020-06-01 - 2023-06-30
Status: ongoing

Description: The H2-REnWast project will install an electrolyser at the IPT campus. In order to explore the potential of producing Green Hydrogen, the electrolyser will be integrated with the IPT solar farm (photovoltaic - PV), hydrogen storage and a small fuel cell for re-electrification. For this purpose, in addition to using energy from renewable sources (Green H2), in order to make the process even “Greener”, and so as to maximise relevance, wastewater will be used in the hydrogen production process. Thus, the treatment of wastewater is necessary to achieve high hydrogen purity and efficiency of process. The plant will be operated in multiple emulated configurations (energy storage, microgrid, fuel production). Hydrogen is increasingly seen as a very important energy vector, both at European and national level. IPT is part of a working group created by the CIMT to turn the Médio Tejo into a “Hydrogen Region”.

SmartBASE (UIDB/05567/2020/00)

logo Title: Backbone And Support Environment for Smart Projects
Partners: NA
Researchers: Luís Oliveira, Renato Panda, Pedro Correia, Paulo Coelho, Henrique Pinho
Date: 2020-06-01 - 2023-06-30
Status: ongoing
url:
Description: The project goal consists in the implementation of shared hardware and software resources available for all Ci2 projects and thematic areas.

SmarterCW (UIDP/05567/2020/03)

logo Title: Smart monitoring of constructed wetlands and other green wastewater treatment technologies to improve efficiency and water quality
Partners: NA
Researchers: Henrique Pinho, Luís Oliveira, Manuel Barros, Carlos Ferreira, Dina Mateus
Date: 2020-06-01 - 2023-06-30
Status: ongoing
url:

Description: The project aims the create a framework to provide the monitoring of biological wastewater treatment processes through the gathering of continuous data from remote water and environmental sensors. The acquired data can be processed and analysed through data analytics tools to provide a better understanding of the complex and coupled phenomena underneath wastewater treatment. The results will allow for improving the efficiency and control of green wastewater treatment technologies.


B-RELIABLE (SAICT/30935/2017)

logo Title: Boosting reliability and interaction on brain-machine interface systems integrating automatic error-detection
Partners: UC-ISR, UC-ICNAS, IPT-VITA
Researchers: Gabriel Pires, Ana Lopes, Miguel Castelo-Branco, Urbano J. Nunes, João Paulo, Aniana Brito, M. Simões
Date: 2018-06-20 - 2021-06-19
Status: ongoing
url: project sheet / website
Description: Research & Development of new methods, theoretical and computational models and respective experimental validation, in human-centered systems, using brain-machine/computer interfaces (BMI/BCI).

INFANTE (CENTRO-01-0246-FEDER-000017)

logo Title: Precursor for microsatellite constellations for maritime applications
Partners: AST, GMV, HPS, Omnidea, Spinwork, CEIIA, FCT-UNL, FEUP, INL, IPN, ISEP, ISQ, ISR Lisboa, IT, UBI
Researchers: Carlos Ferreira
Date: 2017-11-01 - 2020-10-31
Status: ongoing
url: project sheet / website
Description: The project INFANTE consists of a joint venture for the development and in-orbit demonstration of a microsatellite as a precursor to a satellite constellation for maritime surveillance, Earth observation and communications between satellites and ground stations. The project is led by the company TEKEVER, but brings together other Portuguese companies (such as Active Space Technologies, GMV, HPS, Omnidea and Spinwork), reference R&D units such as CEIIA, FCT-UNL, FEUP, INL, IPN, ISEP, ISQ, ISR Lisboa, IT Aveiro and UBI, and also international organizations such as the Innovation Academy for Microsatellites from the Chinese Science Academy.
