Concept movie from the European research project ME3gas produced by SICS, Emmanuel Frécon and Jonas Söderberg.

SICS participates in the project Smart Gas Meters & Middleware for Energy Efficient Embedded Services (ME3Gas). The goal of the project is to put consumers in control of their energy efficiency and appliances at home to allow energy-saving usage without compromising comfort or convenience. The utilization of intelligent concepts is what makes energy smart, and is the heart of energy efficiency technologies. Through energy-intelligent control, regulation and communication we can expect to see further improvements in energy yield.

The video shows an energy aware middleware platform making it possible to network heterogeneous physical devices into a service oriented architecture. To ensure the impact of the project results, the middleware will be validated in several use-case scenarios, like this. The project will also contribute to the knowledge generation in the field of IT for energy efficiency and sensor networks.
