New technological solutions for optimizing indoor air quality and minimizing airborne transmission of pathogens


Aim of the Project

Offer to society safe and healthy environments in areas of everyday life for citizens, public buildings, hospitals, schools and other everyday areas. Specifically, to develop a series of tools, following a holistic strategy to ensure a healthy indoor environment in buildings, both those with and without HVAC (ventilation and air conditioning) systems. They will be equipped with intelligent pathogen mitigation and air renewal strategies adapted to their characteristics, taking into account not only the health of the occupants, but also efficient, environmentally responsible and user-friendly energy management.


Role of Vicomtech

Vicomtech has developed artificial intelligence-based models that are able to predict indoor air quality based on data collected in real time by IoT equipment developed within this project. In addition, it has developed tools to size and simulate ventilation and air conditioning systems and equipment suitable for specific spaces, and has established operation/exploitation criteria for these systems and equipment, depending on the characteristics of the spaces. Finally, Vicomtech has developed an Edge/Coud platform made up of different software modules and associated services that enable the operation of the solution for the dynamic monitoring and management of the installation.
