Profium joined research in environmental monitoring technologies, tools and services
Profium Oy joined the national The Measurement, Monitoring and Environmental Efficiency Assessment (MMEA) research program, which aimed at groundbreaking developments in environmental monitoring technologies, tools and services.
The focus was on 1) new on-line & remote sensing technologies, 2) interoperable environmental observation systems, 3) management systems for environmental efficiency – thus covering the whole value chain from sensors to environmental efficiency services. Further, the program includes 4) testing and demonstrating the results in the MMEA Testbed, and 5) implementing pilots.
The backbone of the MMEA program is the MMEA Platform (Framework – Testbed – Envitori). MMEA Platform is an essential tool in developing the main deliverables of the program and is needed by the other work packages. MMEA Platform enabled systemic change in environmental monitoring since the system could accept new kind of data providers through embedded billing and data quality services. The key outcome of the system is information on the environmental efficiency of processes, products or infrastructures and their compliance with the preset environmental targets. Hence, the system makes it possible to monitor, evaluate and validate the environmental efficiency to different stakeholders. Another result is a decision support and equivalent systems that provide both online and long term information for process management, operations, business planning and citizens.
Profium SENSE semantic technology brought significant benefits to the program, as it was integrated with the project specific platform architecture and selected service applications.
