blank.gif The IMPReSS project is a joint EU-Brazil project. The aim of the project is to provide a Systems Development Platform which enables rapid and cost effective development of mixed criticality complex systems involving Internet of Things and Services (IoTS) and at the same time facilitates the interplay with users and external systems.

The IMPReSS development platform will be usable for any system intended to embrace a smarter society. The demonstration and evaluation of the IMPReSS platform will focus on energy efficiency systems addressing the reduction of energy usage and CO2 footprint in public buildings, enhancing the intelligence of monitoring and control systems as well as stimulating user energy awareness.

The IMPReSS platform will thus aim at solving the complexity of system development by providing a holistic approach that includes an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), middleware components, and a deployment tool.

The IMPReSS project ended on 31 March 2016.


O projeto IMPReSS é uma parceria entre a União Europeia e o Brasil (UE-Brasil). O objetivo do projeto é fornecer uma plataforma de desenvolvimento de sistemas, que permita o desenvolvimento rápido e de baixo custo para sistemas complexos envolvendo Internet das Coisas e Serviços (IOT) e, ao mesmo tempo, facilitando a interação com os usuários e os sistemas externos.

A plataforma de desenvolvimento do IMPReSS poderá ser utilizada por qualquer sistema que adote o contexto de sociedade inteligente (Smart Society). A demonstração e validação da plataforma IMPReSS serão realizadas em sistemas de eficiência energética visando a redução do uso de energia e emissão de CO2 em edifícios públicos. Uma contribuição será a inclusão de inteligência nos sistemas de monitoramento e controle, bem como o estimulo da consciência do usuário na redução dos gastos em energia.

A plataforma de IMPReSS, visa reduzir a complexidade do desenvolvimento do sistema através de uma abordagem holística, que inclui um ambiente de desenvolvimento integrado (IDE), componentes de middleware, e uma ferramenta para implantação de aplicações.

O projeto IMPReSS terminou em 28 de Fevereiro de 2014.
IMPReSS Open Source Available
blank.gifCreated June 16 2016 09:59:36 pibe.gif Posted by Trine Sorensen blank.gif
blank.gifThe IMPReSS platform builds on Open Source platforms and one of the goals of the project is to support an increase of the global market share for Open Source solutions by increasing the availability of software components and knowledge to market actors. Although the project has ended, the code for all IMPReSS components is still available. Read more for instructions on how to access the code.

blank.gifUFAM and VTT have written a paper which will be presented at the 34th Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC) in Bahia, Brazil. The paper is in Portuguese and is entitled Atribuição dinâmica de canais em redes sem fio não coordenadas IEEE 802.11, baseada em fatores de sobreposição e intensidade de sinal. blank.gif
UFAM interviewed for São Paulo newspaper

blank.gifThe article, The Smart City needs full integration, talks about the use of technology to make cities smart and thereby improve people’s lives. However, to succeed it is necessary to develop integrated information systems. The collaboration between Brazilian and European partners in the IMPReSS project is mentioned as an example of how cities and the government can benefit from new projects.

Eduardo Souto from UFAM was interviewed for the article and he explains how the smart energy management system implemented at Teatro Amazonas in Manaus will reduce energy consumption of both lights and air conditioning. Eduardo Souto is cited: “We will create algorithms to predict where the energy expenditure will be the biggest, and then explain to the state government how and where it is possible to save energy.”
IMPReSS Usability Workshop

blank.gifA usability test of the IMPReSS SDP was conducted with prospective application developers from UFPE in Recife, Brazil. Five IMPReSS components, or tools, were tested and evaluate using a standard well-known usability questionnaire, the User Experience Questionnaire (Laugwitz, T. Held, and M. Schrepp) which allows end-user of a product to evaluate their experiences using the product in question. blank.gif
