Tech transfer leading to prestigious interoperability leadership award

Over the past year the TSSG having been collaborating with the Smart Networks team of ESB, on part of a standardised approach to data modelling and data architecture for the energy utility. This is research to find the best way for data management to help maximise renewable energy integration and electrification within the utilitys’ overall system infrastructure.

It has been a great pleasure to find that ESB Networks have been recently presented a prestigious EPRI PDU Technology Transfer Award for Leadership in Integration. EPRI have noted that ESB Networks are THE leaders in perusal of a standardised approach to organisational architecture and data models, and are a utility paving the way for defining the future of data management within utilities.

TSSG participate in Brazil Ireland Research event


Waterford Institute of Technology participate in a two city mission on Brazil Ireland research and education opportunities and EU-Brazil collaboration project final review

James Clarke of the TSSG of Waterford Institute of Technology attended the Brazil Ireland Research Event in Rio de Janeiro on 12 – 13th April, 2018. The event was co-sponsored by the Higher Education Authority, Irish Universities Association, Irish Research Council, Technological Higher Education Association and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. This event was a follow-up event to the successful 1st Brazil-Ireland Research Week event hosted at Dublin Castle in 2015, organised by the Research Brazil Ireland (RBI) programme (funded by Science Foundation Ireland under the International Strategic Cooperation Award – SFI ISCA) in which WIT were a core partner.

The theme of Brazil Ireland Research event was “Building a Shared Future through Education & Research Excellence” covering four thematic areas: Health/Bioscience/Pharmacy/Neuroscience, Humanities/Social Science/Education, Agri-food/Environment/Marine Science, and Engineering/Energy/ICT/Maths.

The timing of this event is very important as the Brazilian agency Coordination of Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES) has launched the CAPES / PrInt programme, which will provide Brazil Reals R$300 million annually to support institutional projects for internationalisation. CAPES / Print will focus mainly on the internationalisation of Brazilian postgraduate programmes through partnerships with higher education institutions (HEIs) in a range of priority countries listed by the agency, of which Ireland is one. There is also a strong wish from the Brazilian authorities, articulated by Secretary Alvaro Prata, Ministry for Science and Technology, during his visit to Ireland in October, 2017, to learn from Ireland’s experience in building higher education – industry engagement.

Waterford Institute of Technology has built a strong relationship with Brazil in the field of research and innovation in a number of different areas of ICT, including Internet of Things, cloud computing and cybersecurity. This relationship has built up over nearly a decade with involvement in the EU’s Framework Programme 7 (FP7) BIC project that ran from 2011 to 2013, in which James Clarke of WIT was the coordinator, SFI’s Research Brazil Ireland (RBI) programme and with the awarding of an EU-Brazil Horizon 2020 project entitled EUBrasilCloudFORUM, which will be described in more detail later.

Precision Dairy – A Universal Agri Tech Sensor System

Precison Dairy1

Waterford Institute of Technology’s Telecommunication Software and Systems Group (TSSG) was awarded SFI funding in conjunction with Teagasc for a project titled “Using precision technologies, technology platforms and computational biology to increase the economic and environmental sustainability of pasture based production systems (PrecisionDairy)” in a joint venture initiative between Teagasc and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) within the research theme known as ‘Future Agri-Food’. PrecisionDairy focuses on the use of ICT to develop an autonomous system capable of integrating, processing and managing data from diverse sensor environments (e.g. grass, animal) to deliver timely and effective farm management information to the farmers and influence the decision making process.

Precision dairy farming is an inherently interdisciplinary field incorporating concepts from bioinformatics, biostatistics, pasture and animal breeding, animal husbandry and nutrition, machine learning, sensor networking, autonomic network management and engineering. TSSG primarily focuses on the following tasks:
