The end of 2021 is in sight, the ideal time to thank you for your trust in the past year and to look forward to what the future brings. We have a lot in store for you and would like to give you a hint here.

A small part of discarded household appliances that are now shredded could be reused or refurbished, or their components reused in the refurbishing process. Refurnished household appliances can offer people in energy poverty an alternative to energy-consuming appliances. Through advanced data analytics and cognitive and assistive operator support the efficiency of the refurbishing process can be increased.

Smart connected products enable us to optimise operations & maintenance, ensure safety, reduce cost, make a more sustainable use of natural resources, etc. By design, smart connected products evolve more rapidly than their traditional counterparts. Your company too can benefit from the smartification of your product offer, with a little help from Sirris.

Few technologies capture the imagination as much as artificial intelligence. Being able to adjust the present or predict the future based on data: which entrepreneur does not want this? Especially in industrial environments, data is considered the new gold. You work not only with data from people, but also from machines. The latter can be adjusted with new insights, in order to optimise the processes. Sounds good in theory, but where to start?

Thanks to the advances of the Internet-of-Things, companies can continuously record data and monitor their (fleet of) assets in real-time. When used properly, this valuable data can help benchmark the performance of those assets, making it possible to determine if and why certain assets are underperforming.

This is the second in a series of blogs, in the context of the MISTic project concerning the traffic situation in Brussels in times of Covid-19 restrictions. Here we focus on the evolution of traffic during the relaxations of the restrictions.

Nowadays, many companies understand the power of data on their products and services. By intelligently exploiting data from their products, they are able to improve business operations & processes, enhance the design of their products and create service offerings complementing their existing products. This can only be achieved with trustworthy, qualitative and accurate data. Sirris wants to tackle the challenges by setting up a new project.

The present corona crisis has made life and work circumstances quite challenging for everybody, but for data science the lockdown restrictions created a number of very interesting real-world problems to study. The EluciDATA Lab of Sirris has fully exploited this opportunity and has managed to derive some characteristic blueprints of the traffic in Brussels.

Together with imec and the DTAI research group of KU Leuven, the Sirris EluciDATA Lab will be hosting a special session on 'Fleet-based Prognostics and Health Management of Industrial Assets' at the Fifth European Conference of the Prognostics and Health Management Society 2020 in Turin on 1-3 July.

With sensors becoming rapidly cheaper, manufacturing companies are expecting their massive sensor deployment to support vital services, such as predictive maintenance, automated supply chain management, operations & usage monitoring. However, billions of connected IoT devices, generating monumental amounts of data do not necessary result in smart systems or products. They do have a direct impact on cost. The InsightProducts project supports companies to improve their product and service offering through a cost-effective approach to relevant and qualitative product data acquisition and use in view of digital servitisation.
