The Projects Department of AFCON Software and Electronics specializes in developing custom-made projects, combining its system engineering know-how with a vast knowledge in the ICT area.
The experience of the Projects Department includes design, development and implementation of ICT Systems. These include Wired and Wireless communication technologies, GIS systems, telemedicine software applications, Data-warehousing, Business Intelligence, Expert Systems and DSS (Decision Support Systems), User Interfaces for Web and Win applications and more.
The Projects Department is experienced in management of R&D projects and in testing, integrating and validating such systems.
AFCON Software and Electronics Ltd. participates in several international, EU funded projects and acts as leader of the ICT Work package in several FP6/7 IP projects. In addition, AFCON provides custom solutions as part of large integrative, customer targeted projects.
The AGILE project aim is to develop and evaluate an integrated Large-Scale Control Systems (LSCS)-design methodology, applicable to large-scale systems of arbitrary scale, heterogeneity and complexity and capable of:
- Providing pro-active, arbitrarily-close-to-optimal LSCS performance;
- Being intrinsically self-tuneable, able to rapidly and efficiently optimize LSCS performance when short- medium- and long-time variations affect the large-scale system;
- Providing efficient, rapid and safe fault-recovery and LSCS re-configuration; and,
- Achieving all the above, while being scalable and modular.
The project is funded by the EU 7th Funding Program.
The HuSIMS (Human Situation Monitoring System) project aims to improve security in densely populated areas by providing a dense mesh of intelligent visual sensors that is sensitive to irregular behavior patterns in the monitored area. The development will improve safety and security in city centers, train stations, office buildings etc. Detection of anomalous events will trigger the appropriate emergency action and provide visual notification - without compromising personal privacy.
The project will be built by Celtic consortium of 12 EU partners, 3 of which are Israeli.
The Israeli partners will be funded by the Israeli Office of the Chief Scientist.
The objective of the SONO project is to build a pilot line based on a sonochemical reactor which will produce medical antibacterial textiles by impregnating antibacterial nanoparticles on fabrics designed for medical use. The system will be developed and optimized based on metrology and safety control and process automation. The project is funded by the EU 7th Funding Program.
SKIN TREAT Project
SKINTREAT project designs and develops a novel generation of customized products and services for personalized skin therapy, utilizing nano-chemical, bio- technologies and information technologies to achieve an accurate matching of drugs and drug delivery vehicles to pathogenic skin conditions. The project is funded by the EU 7th Funding Program.
The CHILL-ON project includes, among others, management of supply chain chilled food products. The project is under the EU 6th Funding Program.
The goal of the P. CEZANNE project is to develop a system for real-time monitoring of glucose levels of diabetic patients, using micro sensor implants and a Central Monitoring System for medical caregivers. P.Cezanne is funded by the EU 6th Funding Program.
Terminal Operating System (TOS) and Other Sea-Port projects
The TOS project provides the Israeli Port Authorities with a computerized system that delivers efficient ship storage planning to enhance the waterfront vessel management and simplify cargo transport, loading unloading and storage.
The Nisan project combines new and existing technologies to build a platform for medical home tests and to create a sensor for non-invasive blood coagulation assessment. The project is being developed by AFCON together with Meir Hospital, Tel Aviv University and several European partners.
