STREAM is a VINNOVA funded challenge driven innovation, where researchers from SICS, in collaboration with industry, have created new and competitive automation solutions based on advanced IT and customized business models. The automation solutions were created through integration and further development of current technologies for automated condition monitoring, diagnosis, planning and optimization in existing systems.
The project started in 2012 and represent a strong constellation. The project is led by researchers from SICS in Västerås and Kista and by researchers from Mälardalen University and is implemented in collaboration with ABB, Addiva, Atlas Copco, Blue Institute, Bombardier, Eduro, Mälarenergi, Prevas, Trafikverket and Volvo CE.
The case studies done in participation with industry is an important part of the project. The results from the case studies is what the STREAM toolbox is built on. The toolbox consists of tools and algorithms that, with some adjustment, can be used in other production environments. Eventually this toolbox will consist of a broad spectrum of innovative products and services for process automation with direct impact on future production and maintenance management.
The innovations in the STREAM project contributes to increased competitiveness through technical solutions that are translated into new products and services. These products are generic, meaning that they can be used in several industries and will be available to stakeholders outside the project. It will also strengthen Swedish industry with a more energy efficient operation and with a safer workplace which will lead to increased competitiveness.
