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.

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.

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.
