XLAB joined the consortium of the European H2020 research project MANTIS, following the ECSEL Joint Undertaking call – an established framework that has fostered scientific research in smart systems and cyber-physical systems integration in Europe.
The overall concept of MANTIS (Cyber Physical System based Proactive Collaborative Maintenance) is to provide a proactive maintenance service platform architecture based on Cyber Physical Systems that allows to estimate future performance, to predict and prevent imminent failures and to schedule proactive maintenance. The research addressed in MANTIS will contribute to companies' assets availability, competitiveness, growth and sustainability. Use cases will be the testing ground for the innovative functionalities of the proactive maintenance service platform architecture and for its future exploitation in the industrial world. Results of MANTIS can be utilized directly in several industry areas and different fields of maintenance.
XLAB’s main contributions to the project are its solutions from the field of cloud computing and IoT (smart sensors and infrastructures connecting them into the cloud), data acquisition technologies, resource monitoring and security solutions.
