Architectural model of the Sagrada Familia's Nativity Facade in 3D

VIMAC UPC has created a highly accurate 3D model of the Sagrada Família’s Nativity Facade. The aim of the project was to document the architectural geometry, obtain evidence of the current state of conservation and provide documentary support. The data is of use for plans and designs drawn up to complete the building that is still under construction. It also enables works of conservation, restoration, maintenance, reform...

Smart router for energy distribution

CITCEA UPC, in collaboration with its spin-off Teknocea, has developed a smart system called IDPR (Intelligent Distribution Power Router). This device can be used to address congestion and instability in the low voltage grid for the integration of renewable energies and distributed generation, new loads such as electric vehicles and storage systems. The device can also be used to manage batteries, so it has great potential in self-consumption environments and in future situations that...
