STREAM - Innovations for Sustainable, Smart, and Efficient Automation
STREAM is a VINNOVA-funded challenge-driven innovation, where researchers from SICS, in collaboration with industry, will create new and competitive automation solutions.
The project started in 2012, it is led by researchers from SICS in Västerås and Kista and implemented in collaboration with ABB, Addiva, Blue Institute, Bombardier, Eduro, Mälardalen University, Mälarenergi, Prevas, Trafikverket and Volvo CE.
STREAM will create new automation solutions through integration and further development of current technologies for automated condition monitoring, diagnosis, planning and optimization in existing systems.
Case studies done in participation with industry is an important part of the project. The results from the case studies will build up the STREAM toolbox. 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 project results are expected to have an impact on the international market which will maintain and strengthen Sweden´s strong global position in automation.
