Motion Control and Industrial Applications (MCIA UPC) has created the spin-off Dattium Technology, specialised in the development of smart monitoring systems for industrial applications. Dattium brings together the research centre’s accumulated expertise in predictive maintenance, industry 4.0 and industrial electronics. The new company’s entrepreneurial team is comprised of the MCIA UPC researchers Maria Quiles, Jesus Adolfo Cariño, Daniel Zurita and Juan Antonio Ortega (codirector of MCIA UPC).
Dattium Technology will market data analysis solutions for production control based on smart monitoring systems that can determine and assess in real time the general behaviour of an industrial plant. The system can be used to assess the quality of a manufactured product or in predictive maintenance of machinery.
Through powerful artificial intelligence algorithms and machine learning methods, the large amount of data generated during manufacturing processes become useful information for decision-making. A system of graphic interfaces ensures a fast, simple display of analytical results, including deviations from the optimum in a plant’s operation, the detection of faults, and defects caused by other factors.
The solutions offered by Dattium Technology can be applied in the metal, chemical or automobile sectors, among others.
Dattium Technology is the result of collaboration with IThink UPC. Both IThink UPC and the UPC hold shares in the spin-off.
