Online sensor for flowbased systems
|Coordinator||LINDBORG SYSTEMS AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||September 2016 - October 2018|
Purpose and goal
The project goal was to verify both technology and business through multiple prototype iterations in field trials. Since we had a lot of hardware and software issues, business discussions have lacked behind and we have not reached a fully-fledged service offering nor how the hardware could be sold separately. We should also verify the solution in both a villa and real estate installation which have been done and the same sensor solution seems to be possible to use in both cases. We´re looking forward to more tests where we can verify this further.
Expected results and effects
We have succeeded in producing a sensor solution that meets the quality requirements we want, but today it is too expensive to scale up. The backend solution we have built for data and visualizations is enough to provide commercial benefit and will become a base both for us to learn more about the heat / cooling systems we will measure and deliver services to customers. We have received orders from end customers on 2 systems and we will be able to continue the analyzes on their system during the winter 2018-2019
Planned approach and implementation
The project has coordinated by Lindborg Systems in close cooperation with other actors as well as suppliers and tool makers. The project have had delays but these have been managed within budget and just pushed the project in calendar time. The absolute biggest source of the delays have been hardware-related and applied to the solution itself around the sensors. But we also have had problems with the processors we initially focused on to utilize in the product.
