The client is one of the highest producers of rabbit meat in Europe and has more than 40 rabbit farms with 4 silos each. The silos are hermetically closed, so hitting the container from outside is, until now, the only resource that exists to estimate if it is necessary to fill it.
This application permits any industry to calculate the capacity of a closed recipient. That includes not only the silo, but also many other possibilities in the primary sector. It could be used to measure the volume of a milk tank. In other areas, the uses can be very diverse, such as detecting the presence of people in any work space.
A device is placed inside the silo and, through a laser, it detects if there is feed and how high it is. Several engines allow you to rotate in all directions necessary to perform a full sweep. This way he takes the measurements and sends them to a web system, where they are processed. Each type of feed has a different density, so depending on the volume the system can calculate very accurately how many kilos are left. The device is installed in each silo independently, since it could be powered by batteries, with solar panels or directly connected to the power grid to avoid maintenance problems. The signal it sends is wireless, it can be transmitted via Wi-Fi or by 4G, and it can be programmed as often as desired, every second or once a day if the managers of the farm decide that it is not necessary anymore.

Livestock specialized in the breeding cattle with the aim of optimizing the use of available natural resources, with a breed able to achieve higher yields and therefore greater profitability. The genetic selection made and the continuous improvement of the breeders of this breeding has made it possible for the final destination of the animals born on this farm to be sold as breeders and breeding animals, offering our customers animals of a superior genetic quality, which can contribute to improve production and therefore the profitability of the farms.
In order to maximize the success of the breeding, the farms need a tool to monitorize the activity of cattle in order to detect anomalities such as diseases, possible pregnancy or births. The present project tries to give a response to these needs with the artificial intelligence and new technologies.
The project presents a wireless sensor network to monitor the activities of cattle. It is provided with different cameras, temperature sensors and accelerometers to know if they eat correctly or if they are suffering from possible diseases, they will be giving birth or they are possibly pregnant.

One of the needs of the client (and of other similar companies) is the use of a computer platform for data management, with the aim of optimizing all steps within an industrial process. Through the platform generated in PRISMA you can make a much more efficient planning and management of product manufacturing.
The purpose of Prisma will be the creation of a computer platform for data management in companies, with the aim of optimizing all steps within an industrial process. Through this platform you can make a much more efficient planning and management of product manufacturing.
This project is another step in the development of Industry 4.0 in which the Internet of Things is gaining more and more weight. The dynamism of the market means that more and more competitive products are needed. The fourth industrial revolution implies a reduction of expenses through the optimization of resources and a digitalization that provides more information, making the process much more efficient.

RANCHO GUAREÑA HNOS OLEA LOSA S.L. is a company dedicated to agricultural activity, which includes: set of works necessary for the obtaining of agricultural, livestock and forest products, which are exercised in agrarian exploitation, as well as direct selling of own production without transformation.
the elimination of milk quotas is causing a delocalisation of production. The average increase in milk production in Spain was 6.9% between 2014 and 2015, with logistics costs being higher for the industries, with large distribution having the most to say in terms of pricing. The price of milk has hit land since then in Castilla y León (below € 0.3 per liter), and the number of professionals has fallen drastically.
All this implies that solutions have to be found that allow producing more with fewer resources, thus reducing costs and making Castilla y León a more competitive region in the agricultural and livestock sector. As reflected in the RIS3 of Castilla y León, the Community has undeniable potential to position itself in the Europe 2020 bioeconomy model. The role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) will be fundamental for this. As reflected in the strategy itself, the competitiveness of companies in the sector will go through greater efficiency in their production processes, from the point of view of the intensive use of ICT, energy efficiency and the valorisation of waste and the use of technologies green in general.
The project aims to improve the competitiveness of companies in the dairy sector in the community of Castilla y León through the improvement of efficiency in their production processes, from the point of view of the intensive use of ICT, energy efficiency and valorisation of waste and use of green technologies in general.
The unstoppable rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) must also fall in these sectors and offer affordable solutions, which requires a previous research work on new technologies and hybrid artificial intelligence algorithms that allow improving the performance of farms.

This project is about the development of an intelligent PPE (Individual Protection Equipment) aimed at improving the safety conditions of the operators of power grid transformation centers.
It seeks to integrate all electronic elements (some of them wearables) in a functional way in an application that collects and transmits in real time the data referring to the worker's condition and the working environment conditions to favor safety.
All the elements are connected wirelessly via Bluetooth and Wifi for communication of the worker with the web server. In addition, it is intended to design a social machine, where the Cloud platform will transfer the data and manage the information to give warnings and recommendations in real time.
