Irideon is very happy to have successfully finished one of the first projects funded in the pilot phase of the H2020 Fast Track to Innovation programme.
IRIDEON S.L. is a Spanish company that provides technical consultancy services in the field of information and communications technologies and sensor systems. They have developed SENSCAPE®, a disruptive, modular, standards-based framework for the development of fast time-to-market Internet of Things solutions. In 2016the companystarted working together with the German company Biogents and the Technological Education Institute of Crete in the collaborative project REMOSISto develop a novel smart trap station as an Internet of Things surveillance solution to remotely count and identify the species of disease-carrying mosquitoes. REMOSIS attract insects with great efficiency, and perform stand-alone field monitoring, by automatically counting insects, identifying species, and transmitting the datawirelessly. This reduces inspection costs by 80% improving surveillance programmes, which will prevent unnoticed disease outbreaks, and will save lives. This project was funded by the H2020-FTIPilot-2015-1 call.The support of the Enterprise Europe Network helped the company to find the best strategy to protect the intellectual property of the project REMOSIS. This has significantly contributed to improve Irideon’s positioning on the market and has enabled the current cooperation with Biogents to bring the new smart traps for mosquitoes to the market.
