Laboratory of innovation and developments of measurement environments for knowledge production. – IONESCO

Submission summary

Energy efficiency is one of the key actions for the implementation of the energy transition in Europe and the world. The IONESCO laboratory is part of the development of tools for energy efficiency in industry. The aim of the IONESCO joint laboratory is to set up a "research and innovation" roadmap between the Automation and Systems (A & S) team of The Laboratory of Computer Science and Automatic Control for Systems (LIAS-University of of Poitiers) and Chauvin Arnoux to offer new functionalities to the measuring devices produced by the company including models of knowledge of the industrial environments in which they are used. This work aims at creating a break in the field of measuring instruments. Indeed, on the market, these materials provide information, potentially relevant, numerous, but for the most part not contextualized. Thus, identical information from different contexts can be provided without the apparatus being able to account for this change of environment. Consequently, it is the operator who must operate the three fundamental phases of the treatment, namely contextualization (taking into account the measurement environment), diagnosis and decision-making. The breakthrough envisaged is to initiate what the measurement should be in the industrial environment in the years to come.It consists of deporting all or part of the contextualization and diagnosis in the device, thus enabling the operator to make the best use of his cognitive resources and to make the decisions that are necessary in the circumstances. The project will:
- For contextualization: the development and integration in the apparatus, models of knowledge of networks and energy uses.
- For the diagnosis: the development and integration of specific processing algorithms making the best use of the future measurement and calculation capacities of the equipment.
To achieve these objectives, UNESCO aims to share resources, technologies and knowledge between the A & S team and the Chauvin Arnoux company. The A & S team works on two major themes of automation, namely the identification and control of systems with energy and environmental efficiency as their main applications.In this team is carried out an activity of development of sensors software for the management of the energy which will be the main tool exploited in this project. The Chauvin Arnoux company offers a wide range of measuring instruments used by millions of professionals every day throughout the world. Its range covers the fields of general electrical measurement, electronic device test equipment and physical parameter measurement. The results of the laboratory will allow Chauvin Arnoux to broaden its offer and position itself favorably in the face of its competition by offering a new generation of devices designed on a new ergonomics.
