Enabling Technologies

Each new development or improvement in enabling technologies is a potential source of opportunities that can lead to pervasive and radical changes in our lives.

Research in this field at ITACA focuses on obtaining a better knowledge of these opportunities, regardless of their end application, in an industrial environment or in response to the challenges that our society is facing.

Our current research in this field is grouped into the following topics.

Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

Evidence based on data may be difficult to analyze and may require stratification and predictive analytics tools. Visualization tools to classify and compare data may be necessary for decision making. ITACA has a wealth of experience in predictive analytics and the development of decision support systems.

Internet of Things

ITACA is developing efficient technologies for the integration of distributed and heterogeneous data, standardization and semantic interoperability and data quality in the Internet of Things. With a strong expertise in sensornetworks, embedded systems and intelligent sensors, ITACA is developing and integrating systems that constitute a smart environment around the user.

Process Mining

Automating the processes of any type of organization is vital to improve productivity and to optimize costs. Process Mining can help us understand much better how processes are performed. ITACA has developed tools based on process choreography for the incorporation of multi-platform services that allow us to easily integrate M2M intercommunication systems.

Systems Reliability & Cybersecurity

Ensuring that computer systems are secure and reliable is crucial for user confidence. Reliability and safety has a decisive impact on the brand image of products and their manufacturers. ITACA provides methodologies for the development, verification and benchmarking of reliable and safe embedded solutions.

Microwaves, Radiofrequency & Electronics

With multiple applications within the engineering field, ITACA has extensive experience in all frequencies of electromagnetic waves. Our research is focused on the design and development of new devices and circuitry, applied to different areas, such as metrology, biomedicine, environmental control or geolocation.
