MoReLit: Monitoramento remoto de linhas de alta tensão

MoReLit is a three year project R&D (2012-2014), funded by ANEEL (National Agency of Electricity) and CEMIG (the regional company for energy distribution and generation in the Minas Gerais state). The purpose of the project is to develop a prototype of a sensor network for the monitoring of high tension lines. The sensor network will identify important events in the lines (i.e. power outage, cable breakage, etc) and collect send this information to the operating center. The system aims at reducing the time required to diagnose and identify failures in the electric grid, as well as reduce the downtime for the consumers via improved system monitoring.

ReInt: Redes Inteligentes

ReInt is a CNPq project (2012-2014) which aims to develop intelligent networks, through the use of technologies such as machine learning, software-defined radios and softeware-defined networks, in the Internet of things as well as in the Future Internet.

GAP-IFC - Gerenciamento, Arquitetura e Protocolos na Internet do Futuro e das Coisas

GAP-IFC s a two-year cooperation project with Laboratoire d'Informatique Gaspard-Monge (LIGM) and Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT) in France. The project aims to develop management protocols and tools for the Future Internet as well as mobile networks.

MMAPS – Gerenciamento, Mobilidade, Arquitetura, Protocolos e Segurança na Internet do Futuro e das Coisas

MMAPS is a four year project (2012-2015), funded by Capes/Cofecub. It is a cooperation project among UFMG, UFPR and UFRGS in Brazil, and INRIA Nancy-Grand Est, Laboratoire d'Informatique Gaspard-Monge (LIGM) and Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT) in France. The objective of this project is to develop key technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT), mainly working on the aspects of network management, mobility management, security, as well as devising new protocols and architectures for the IoT.

RESEFA: Redes Sem Fio Adaptativas

RESEFA is a two-year project (2011-2013) financed by Fapemig. The objective of the project is to improve the self-configuration aspects of wireless multi-hop networks by the development of new protocols and algorithms using autonomic paradigms. The project operates in three levels. First, it proposes new mechanisms to exchange information in DTNs whenever a contact occurs. Second, it promotes the use of adaptive and/or hybrid protocols, which employ DTN and ad hoc routing concepts and algorithms, in order to improve the performance and reliability of wireless networks. Finally, the project promotes more efficient information dissemination in the application layer with the use of self-configuring protocols based on the context of the nodes and of the network as a whole.

(CIA)2: Construindo Cidades Inteligentes - da Instrumentação dos Ambientes ao desenvolvimento de Aplicações

(CIA)2 is a two-year cooperation project (2011-2012), financed by RNP. Its objective is to develop new protocols, based on IPv6, for the creation of smart cities. The project will develop several types of networks required for a smart urban environment: sensor networks for the monitoring of rivers, green wireless mesh networks for Internet access, a feedback network for the Brazilian System of Digital TV (SBTVD), and heterogeneous networks for traffic monitoring. The Webpage for the demonstration of the project can be found here.
