SmartFuture invests a significant part of its resources in R&D.
Existing Energy Monitoring Systems for building and industry require high cost devices for measurement and need to be installed, commissioned and maintained by a certified electrician. Except for new dwellings, they don’t comply with the requirements (cost, panel size, ease of use) of in-home and SOHO applications.
SmartFuture is involved in a research program dedicated to the definition of sensor technologies leveraging end-user self-install without opening the panel board. We believe that these new technologies are a key success factor of SOHO and in-home automation development.
Current R&D projects:
- Non-intrusive Energy Measurement Sensors
- Software development for Smart Grid applications
- Optimisation algorithms for energy consumption estimations, based on multisensor data fusion
