The fast-changing market trends and customer demands require the manufacturing industries to shorten their time to market to maintain their competitiveness. Customer changing requirements and increased product complexity are largely the most compelling drivers of agile manufacturing industry. It implies constant reprogramming of production tools and robots for the companies, which is costly and time-consuming, especially for SMEs. In order to meet this challenge, the ACROBA project will develop generic robotic platforms tailored to the specific needs of the companies that would be the key step to increase their level of automation within agile production and mass customization scenarios, reducing costs, increasing performance and therefore gaining competitiveness.

The ACROBA project, co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, will last 42 months from January 1st 2021. ACROBA brings together a consortium of 17 partners from 9 EU countries and is coordinated by the Bern University of Applied Sciences (Berner Fachhochschule).

Cloud-based analysis and diagnosis platform for PV prosumers

The project proposes a cost-effective solution designed for small on grid PV systems, where the relevant onsite data are collected, sent to a dedicated cloud platform to be processed, analyzed and diagnosed. The equipment will provide an easy onsite mounting, directly on the prosumer’s installed PV system, without technical assistance. Once connected, it will start rapidly to collect and send data such as: meteorological, spatial PV system configuration, orientation and tilt, into the platform. All received data are automatically integrated and the output data are processed by means of algorithms. The mainly benefits of PVADIPC project are in terms of important time and money savings. The onsite sensors commissioning, data transfer to the PVADIPC cloud platform, their processing, analysis and diagnosis are done fast and easy. As a project result, a smart, easy to use system will be obtained, which will ease the PVs operation. It empowers prosumers to optimize their PV system benefits, e.g. for maximization of the PV generation usage in the moments grid power injection is not allowed, maximizing their revenues or providing flexibility to the distribution system operator (DSO).
