The Motion Control and Industrial Applications Centre (MCIA UPC) participates in the LEONARDO project, which will enable the development of new remote use functionalities of the online management platform for Leonardo coffee machines, predictive repair control and consumption. This will complete the solution through IoT technology and extend the platform to product sectors and channels related to that of professional coffee machines.
The project has the following goals:
The platform currently allows coffee machine owners (mainly coffee roasting companies and restaurant chains), users, the technical service network and the management organization itself (machinery manufacturer or distributor) to access remotely the network of all installed machines and all the relevant information related to them, based on their profile and interest.
The platform is managed from a dashboard that integrates other data related to the management of the technical service for the machinery fleet, such as technical interventions carried out and maintenance costs. This enables global control of the installed fleet.
The project runs from July 2022 and April 2023.
LEONARDO is integrated by members of the consortium formed by the MCIA Centre of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech (UPC), Caffè D’Autore, inèdit, Q2B Studio, Speed Telematics, AEI Clúster Gaia and AEI Clúster Foodservice. The project is approved by the Spanish Government’s Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism (MINCOTUR), within the programme to support Innovative Business Groups (AEI), whose aim is to improve the competitiveness of small and medium-sized companies.
*Project AEI-010500-2022b-11 is jointly funded by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism (MINCOTUR) through the corresponding AEIs call in 2022 as part of the Next Generation grants and the Plan for Recovery, Transformation and Resilience.
